  4. We discussed the Land Trust plan for quite some time.  Jim Martin handed out new copies of the plan.  There has been a question as to the intent behind a science specialist.  The council decided to move the money that would have been used for a science specialist from goal #3 to goal #4 and use the funds for science materials to supplement the new science core K-5.  The council would also like to provide some funds for science-related professional development.  Jim will find out the method for amending the plan to account for these additions/changes.  Goal #1 will also be amended to account for virtual field trips in addition to in-person field trips.
