Business Items (30 min.) Sue

  • State Community Council e-mail

Vote on bylaws - Liz Halaufia motioned to approve SCC Bylaws, Katie Harris seconded.  Approved unanimously.

  • Fall data – see notes from meeting provided by Sue.
  • Sage data – Wilson school is far above district and state averages in LA, math and science on the SAGE results.  Though DIBELS scores have gone down in the last three years in the composite scores, comprehension scores in DAZE are up. 
  • How school grade is configured.  62% growth at Wilson, which is great growth.  Grade is a B.
  • DIBELS has added blue section – “above benchmark”.  We made great growth by reducing red and increasing green/blue.
  • Trustlands budget update – (See budget sheet from last year)
    This year - $49,000 to spend (See budget sheet for this year)
  • SEP Parent night computer lab training for parents – 3-6 Monday and Tuesday night during SEP.  Parents will be trained on AR, Reflex math, Scootpad and Imagine Learning.
  • Sue would like us to approve a budget for treats for the kids and adults, as well as pay aides help man the computer lab during that time.  (Amy Cox motioned and Michelle Jensen seconded approval.  Unanimously approved to use parent involvement money for treats and aides.) 
  • Safety in front of school- High School drivers – late drivers are driving through the stake center parking lot and speeding past the school so they don’t have to go through the 20 MPH school zone.  Liz is going to call a police officer to see if they can set up a presence for the next little while to prevent problems.
  • Boundary discussion: Boundary changes are needed to happen by next fall.  There are many new subdivisions being added throughout the district.  Input is needed by patrons of the district to determine where the best boundary changes are happening. Please encourage people to come to meetings throughout the district.  The Board is working on a social media campaign to try and share all of the positive things about LCSD.
