PPTG chairs: Kristel & Drew
Good news: OUSD budget cuts to be made centrally and not from school site budgets for now.
Bad news: We budgeted $17K from art grants. Peralta did not get these grants this year.
Hopeful news: Peralta Rising fund (money received from Indian tribe a few years back). Should we take out money from the Peralta Rising fund? Balance is currently $84K is in CDs. This fund was one of the reasons we did not get art grant. Consensus is to take out some money from Peralta Rising and use towards technology and capital expenses to fill up the hole caused by lack of art grants and other misc. things. Need to get approval at Aug PPTG meeting to add technology and repairs to uses for the fund and to pass budget using $10k this year.
Aides will cost more because will be paid through Oakland Ed fund to be legal employees
STIP sub costs 4K more than initial budgeted due to benefits/health insurance
Only the three K grade classes will get aides this year
Will follow up with Giselle and K teachers on which three aides will continue on
Payment for aides; STIB sub’s and coach:
STIPs – Coach, Sonia P & Sonia K
Ms. Evermen is covered by site budget
Ellen & new garden educator (Will Smith) will be paid by PPTG via invoicing
We pay Oakland ed-fund and Oakland ed-fund pays for the aides, with standard witholdings
Different registration plan this year
Kristel is organizing forms on website
Forms for new students
Forms for returning students
Forms can be printed out / filled and brought to the school for registration or filled in there
Use multiple ways to share information flyers: web / printed copies in backpacks / at registration
