MINUTES TO SEPTEMBER 19th Meeting
Thank you to those who attended our first Community Council Meeting of the year on September 19.  Our next meeting will be held in December, TBA.
 
   
 Discussion:
        -Why is our goal for students reading at grade level 80%?  Our previous goal was 75% which was reached last year, so it has been adjusted upward.
 
        -How many reading aides do we have? We have 4, 2 are paid for from LAND Trust monies.  All math aides are paid for from LAND Trust monies.
 
        -Our school is #1 for Teacher PLC and collaboration, which is accomplished by giving them 3 prep hours per week as students attend Art, Music, PE, and Library.  Our         Music and  Art teachers are maintained by LAND Trust monies.  The Art teacher is paid through a grant with LAND Trust covering the remainder of her salary.
 
        -Technology goal is to have 1:1 Chromebooks for 3rd - 5th grades, and 1 lab per grade for 1st and 2nd.  It will take several years to achieve this.
 
        -Title I School?  We are not currently a Title I School.  Title I Schools are ranked with money going to the highest needs.  Title I monies are decreasing overall. 
   
        -Free & Reduced Lunch.  We discussed making sure the application process was known to everyone, how to make it more visible.
