- Data review -Matt reviewed our current school goals to improve the RI in the special education, ELL, and Hispanic demographics. We want to move 62% students to proficiency. We had 451 students below basic in MI. 162 are below basic on the RI. We have 144 students that are ELL students. 150 students did not take the RI. 139 students are enrolled in Math 180.
There will be a survey sent out for students to decide what incentives they want for moving in proficiency in the RI/MI. Online students can also get the incentive and will be offered for them.
2. TSSP/Land Trust/TSSA- Math 180, paraprofessionals, RI/MI incentives, and AVID summer conference are our biggest expenses on budget. We will be making some adjustments to the budget due to show the changes that are being made from last year.
School safety report
The Safety Committee meets once every quarter. Our fire drill was waived due to COVID-19. We have to do drills in the month of November. Shelter in place is on the 12th. Lockdown is on 24th.
Digital Citizenship- will be taking place in November.
Schedule changes are happening for term 2. Counselors are visiting classrooms for mental health checks and awareness. Something new this year is a Canvas Course for students to access anytime for what they need.
We are here. We are exhausted but we are here.
Fridays have been a huge emotional boost. We got a lot done and it is so needed! We need it!
Parents asked for updates on Parent teacher conferences. Some loved the phone calls and others asked for more time. Parents also want Skyward grades to be updated more often so grades can be as updated as possible.
Cell tower funds have a significant amount to spend. Matt would like to spend it on student incentives, field trips, and teacher incentives, for instance, teacher appreciation and breakfast. We will vote on cell tower spending next month.
Debbie made a motion to adjourn until next month. James seconded.
Adjourn until next meeting: November 18, 2020 @ 5:00pm
