Review This Years Trust Lands Budget

  • Plans were made during the Spring for this year.  3 goals for this plan relate to student achievement on the SAGE assessment.  
  • The plan set a goal to score higher than the state average in the following areas:  Reading - 10% higher   Writing - 5% higher    Math - 10 % higher 

Set Future Dates and Times for Meetings

  • Always the third Thursday of each month.  The next meeting falls on October 23rd because of fall break.

Discuss Strategies for 2014-2015 Budget

  • Discussion about keeping the idea for the budget for this coming year similar to that in the past.  It was brought up that in the future if grades have needs they can present to the council.  Talked about adding art into the school year.  

Timeline for the Council

  • By October 20th we have to have the information from all members of the council posted on the school website.  
  • Before May 15th our plan for next year sent in.

Review Safe Walking Route

  • This has not changed from last year.  It has been approved by the state.  Put and exit only sign on east parking lot.  

Questions, Ideas, Concerns

  • Are the teachers getting the help from PTA and parents that they need.  
  • Concern about parents not understanding the Utah Core.  Talked about having a Title 1 Parent Night breaking down the core and giving information to parents about the core.
  • Question of all Kindergarten classes doing full day.  This is not happening at our school.

Indicators of Greatness

  • Review the list of indicators the teachers created. 
  • Suggestions - making sure the needs of the gifted students are being met as well as those who are below level.
