Mr. Hammond committed to getting the committee names and contact information to Mr. Schoenegge so to kick this process back off.
Mr. Hammond then reviewed the current situation with TCS and our concerns as the Sponsor of TCS. Mr. Hammond covered our concerns and informed the BOE the following; 1). TCS reporting 100% FTE’s, when ODE is requesting that TCS enter in percent of time into EMIS, on a real time basis throughout the school year. 2). Concern teacher anonymous letter about reporting of the FTE time. The TCS Superintendent spoke to the entire staff to make it clear that the teachers should only be reporting actual time for students. In addition, Margaretta sent out a memorandum to all TCS teachers and administrators that stated if the TCS employees are being pressured to misrepresent hours for the students that they are to report that to Margaretta as an independent party from the school. 3). Concerns about the Marion and Mansfield sites where TCS is meeting with students and that they are looking for a location in London. Margaretta is trying to get clarity from ODE on what constitutes a Facility. Also Margaretta is trying to understand what inspections have occurred at the new locations and that they meet all the requirements. Mr. Warner stated Margaretta needs to take the lead on this.
