The HDC SIP team had a meeting on December 18 in the Howells library. Attending the meeting were Mrs. Bazata, Mr. Coon, Mr. Groene, Mrs. Prusa, Mrs. Throener, Mr. VanLengen and ESU 7 specialist Barb Friesth. As a group, we looked over and discussed Standard 3 for the Howells site that was rated by the staff at the last in-service. We also looked at evidence that we need to gather to prove our ratings. The next SIP meeting will be on Thursday, January 8. We plan writing narratives for both sites. After the meeting, Barb, commented that we are doing a great job and are ahead of schedule for our visit.
