Trust Lands Money:  We use trust lands money for interventions as well as specials - music and art.

DIBELS: Fiddlers was top in the district on DIBELS Testing.

Language Arts: CKLA is the district program.

                        Intervention: Reading Groups - every child is in a leveled reading intervention group.

Math: GO Math is the district program.  Envision is for Chinese grades 1-3.  In Grade 4-5 Chinese does not do Math. 

                        Intervention: Every grade level is provided with grade level help for intervention groups for every child.

SAGE Interim:  It gives kids practice for SAGE.  This year it can be broken down into standards.

CSIP: Consolidated School Improvement Plan.  The wall will have all of the grade level standards or GVS's by the end of next week.  CSIP will be updated by teachers each quarter.

Teacher Professional Development: Mrs. Reynolds is training our teachers in tier level instruction. Our school is also working on improving the amount of Feedback as well as the type of Feedback they give.  We have been trying to find ways to continue Opportunities to Respond.

Drop Off and Pick Up: Front parking lot is being finished.  Hopefully this will improve student drop off and pick up.

Trust Lands Administration website will tell all about the purpose of trust lands and it would be great for all council members to see, "Earning for Education".  It is a 6 minute long Youtube video.
