Motion to approve - ShaRee Wade – motion seconded by Jessica Komarek. Approval – unanimous – will go before the board Thursday.

At the request of Mrs. Ralphs, who was unable to attend the meeting, Leader in me was discussed. Ultimately it was decided that the expense would not justify the end result. Also, teachers are already overloaded with numerous programs. Did not want to implement another program.

SAFE Utah app brought up as something that some members had looked at. Looks like a useful tool with anonymous reporting if help is needed. More research needed before it would possibly be implemented.

3:40 motion to adjourn - unanimous
