Community Council

Parent involvement is very important to student academic achievement. By serving on the school council, parents have the opportunity to collaborate with other parents, teachers and the principal to set and achieve school goals. Parents are rewarded with a better understanding of the educational process and have the opportunity to develop relationships with school leadership. A parent always serves as chair of the council. Parents make up the majority of the council and are often the driving force in how School LAND Trust funds are spent.

La participación de los padres es muy importante para el logro académico del estudiante. Al servir en el consejo de la escuela, los padres tienen la oportunidad de colaborar con otros padres, maestros y el director para establecer y alcanzar las metas de la escuela. Los padres son recompensados con una mejor comprensión del proceso educativo y tienen la oportunidad de desarrollar relaciones con el liderazgo escolar. Un padre siempre sirve como presidente del consejo. Los padres constituyen la mayoría del consejo y son a menudo la fuerza impulsora en cómo se gastan los fondos fiduciarios de la escuela LAND.

Summary of Final Report  2017-18

Our goal was to improve student reading as measured by increasing the average percent of students at benchmark in DIBELS by 10% or more from the 2017 to the 2018 results.

2018 Mid-Year Benchmark % By Grade
K - 57%
1 - 33%
2 - 42%
3 - 43%
4 - 46%
5 - 51%
6 - 53%

Overall School Average at Benchmark = 46%

The goal for the school average at mid-year was 59%

A .5 FTE was hired to work with students who struggle with reading grades 3-6.  Two additional 5.75 hours per day reading staff assistants were hired. Staff assistants were not working for the full year because they were hired late in the year.

In the Financial Proposal and Report, there is a carry-over of $13,599 to the 2018-2019 school year. This is 22% of the distribution received in 2017-2018 of $62,084.  We attempted to hire reading assistants and they were not able to begin until after the year had begun which resulted in fewer days worked. We also had an illness that caused one of our assistants to also not put in a full year of work.  Additional funds were spent on purchasing e-books for students to use on Kindles.
