2018-2019 Minutes

October 15, 2018

Student Achievement:

Dibels: Test K-3 three times per year.

Kindergarten tested: 64%
1st grade: 79%
2nd grade:86%
3rd grade: 83%

The Kindergarten is using the Haggerty Phonemic Awareness program daily to boost their skills. After Mrs. Patton tested, they have 44 at risk first graders and she noticed more speech and communication problems. She wanted to encourage parents to read and speak more to their children and limit their time on digital devices.

Sara Souza will write up a parent awareness letter to share this information and encourage more home reading and device awareness.

Reach for Reading: Teachers are creating all of the supplies for the new program. It is stretching the students with it’s difficulty level.

Math: Envisions

CSIP: Filled out in January

NGSS Standards: New Science standards

School District Member: Informed and encouraged us to vote for the school board bond in the upcoming election. It would freeze the tax rate for 5 years. Funds would go toward:
* High Tech High School that would start in 9th grade
*Renovations at Water Canyon, Pineview and Enterprise
* Safety improvements to schools such as security doors
* Teachers with panic buttons

Snow Canyon Middle School Community Council is drafting a letter to get signatures to encourage Santa Clara City to reconsider approving the new extended stay hotel proposed on the corner of Lava Flow and Santa Clara Blvd. The SCMS council has safety concerns because of the number of kids that walk and drive; more cars on the already busy road would be a safety concern. The SCMS community council is encouraging Arrowhead Community Council to consider writing a letter as well.

November 21, 2016

Safety on Malaga

Edward from Santa Clara discussed the possibility of other crosswalks. They can’t just paint more because there is liability with crosswalks and they can’t have crosswalks within 600 feet.  The city will need to do more studies. You can’t put a cross walk without lights, signs etc. Santa Clara city will look at the options discussed. Contact Fred Fage (Building Inspector) 656-4690 ext 217 with any questions.

Dibels

Lesa explained what dibels is, what is tested at each grade level, and when the test is given throughout the year. Dibels tests help to determine intervention groups and it gives the teachers good information on reading patterns. Dibels determines funding for reading programs and interventionist.

Joyce Wilkinson-Digital Plan

The current digital Plan includes internet safety and how Joyce  goes through videos with the students. She talks about not giving out personal information and other internet safety information. The K-1st grade will be using the Waterford reading program when they come in for computer time.  2nd grade comes in once a week for 30 minutes and have been doing the Dance Mat Typing program. 3rd grade will do 17 typing review lesson and then will do Typing Instructor for Kids which  is a website. Joyce will give us more information and Susan will send it out to the parents. 4-5th grades are learning how to use Google Docs and typing.

CSIP

Susan went over the CSIP plan

Goal #1 Reading Interventionists, they do an amazing job and are very needed.

Goal #2 Monthly professional development Lesa has been videoing the teachers and conferencing with them after so they can reflect. Groups include questioning, close reading, self directed learning, engagement.

Goal #3 STEAM Goals, two paraprofessionals teach classes twice a month.

Goal #4 Buy another COW (Computer On Wheels) Another Cart.

Goal #5 Music and Art twice monthly the money helps pay to match the Beverly Taylor Sorensen Grant and fund a teacher.

Goal #6 Paraprofessionals from Taiwan, we could only afford one, but she is a big help to the 1st grade and is a sharp teacher.

Intervention Groups

Paraprofessionals work Mon-Thurs. They are a huge benefit and they keep great data on each student.

Community Council Rules and Regulations

Becky reviewed the new information added to the Community Council regulations.

Report

  1. c EXPLANATION OF CARRY OVER TO 2012-2013
  2. BOARD APPROVED PLAN

Since our academic goal is to have students in all grades score a 70% or higher on all Treasures

assessments, we will provide the following steps:

We will provide focused Tier 1 instruction done by each classroom teacher. With the use of School

LAND Trust funds our teachers will receive quality professional development (study groups) monthly

for 45 minutes to increase their knowledge and help build strategies necessary to teach literacy.

All students will meet with their teacher for quality small group time to work on specific skills needed.

This is our Tier 2 instruction done in the classroom. Again, our School LAND Trust money will allow

for teachers to have study groups to work on strategies to help with literacy.

Next, the students that are struggling will have an additional time with an interventionist to work on

necessary skills using either the Treasures program small group instruction or Soar to Success.

This will be done by the two aides (School LAND Trust funded) and Mrs. Bringhurst (School LAND

Trust funded).

The students in grades 4-5 who qualify for gifted and talented resources, according to the Cogat, will

go to Excel Learning for 45 minutes a day. This is funded by the school.

The teachers will meet in their PLC teams to check progress of students weekly since the weekly

test in Treasures is used for every student.

  1. a PLAN REPORT

Our school used two aides to work with students in grades K, 1st, and 2nd to assist with reading and

writing in small groups four days a week. We also hired a SEE student from DSC to teach in Mrs.

Bringhurst's classroom while she used the time to do Soar to Success comprehension intervention

groups with grades 3rd-5th. We also had substitutes for professional development and DRA testing.

Our school increase significantly on the CRT tests. We were an average of 75% in 2011 and our

2012 score average was 84%.

Our Treasures unit scores were continually averaged at 72% to 77%. Our weekly scores ranged

much higher with the scores falling between 82%-95%.

  1. BOARD APPROVED GOALS

Proposal

Description- Benefit to students

Two aides

Two aides will work with students in grades K, 1st, and 2nd. The aides will assist teachers in reading and writing to small groups of students (no bigger than 6.) This will help teachers meet with struggling readers and writers more often in small groups. The aides will use the small group materials from Treasures.

Report

Intervention Specialist

Mrs. Bringhurst, the intervention specialist, will provide set intervention times for students in grades 3rd, 4th, and 5th daily for 30 minutes. This will require a SEE student to free up time for Mrs. Bringhurst. The interventions will be done daily using the Soar to Success intervention program.

Substitutes for PD/Study Groups/ and DRA testing

There is a need for substitutes monthly for our study groups. This gives teachers an opportunity to have some professional development. Each team spends 45 minutes a month engaged in professional development. The focus will be on Treasures so most of the professional development will be on small group instruction and writing.

Teachers sometimes lose academic times when giving assessments for Treausres. Sometimes we may need to get a substitute to help with the testing if there are any other extra funds.

Academic Goal for LiteracyThe academic goal for all students in grades K-5 is to have 70% or higher on our Treasures weekly assessments and our Treasures unit assessments. Now that we have a baseline from the program, we would like to see overall growth for each student. The average growth per student from the previous school year would be five percentage points higher on each assessment than the previous school year.

  1. a REPORT OF GOAL ACHIEVEMENT

Our goals were exceeded in Language Arts because of our focus on Tier 1 instruction with the help

of quality professional development. We also used our small group interventions to do guided

reading but added the skill the students were working on. The two aides and Mrs. Bringhurst did that

in their groups four days a week. PLC teams were also invaluable since the students were

discussed weekly and moved if they weren't showing progress.

Report

The academic goal for all students in grades K-5 is to have 70% or higher on our Treasures weekly

assessments and our Treasures unit assessments. Now that we have a baseline from the program,

we would like to see overall growth for each student. The average growth per student from the

previous school year would be five percentage points higher on each assessment than the previous

school year.

  1. a REPORT OF MEASUREMENTS

Our average Treasures unit score when combining U1-U6 for 2010-2011 was 68%. Our average

Treasures unit score when combining U1-U6 for 2011-2012 was 74%. We made much progress

from the previous year.

  1. BOARD APPROVED PLAN FOR ADDITIONAL EXPENDITURES

Since there is a lot of testing required for the Treasures program, if  there is extra School LAND

Trust money, it will be used to get substitutes to  help with the testing in Kindergarten since they

assess every three  weeks.

If there is extra money, it will be used to fund study groups once a month for teacher development.
