Our standardized testing data and growth testing data is down from previous years. We are still on pace in district and higher than the state average as district and state numbers also went down.
Example: 47% K
These numbers represent the percent of students who started that grade level and were on grade level, in their reading skills, coming into the start of the year. It does show that most kids are growing in their reading skills and not dropping below grade level benchmarks as they move grade to grade.
Overall Percentage was 70% of our students scored on grade level with proficiency in reading (based on Mid Year Acadience Reading Composite Score).
Proposal by Troy to increase that number to 75% by next Mid Year, 2022-2023.
To help with this we will have teachers and staff identify individual kids who are below grade level reading and make realistic growth marks for those kids from beginning of year to mid year.
Another way is all day Kindergarten and to make that more available for kids who need it for their primary stages of reading and academics.
We will also look to increase school reading activities and school wide book readings. (G.R.A.B.) Possibly doing a Fall and Spring school wide book.
We will continue to have our tier II small reading group times during the day for kids needing stronger invention reading strategies.
Possible Future Incentive is using AR to get kids motivated to read months in advance of a coming school wide book reading. Also have tiered rewards so when kids reach certain numbers of points [they] will then receive the reward for that tier.
Math proficiency for the school is at 58% (based on the end of year state Rise Math Test).
Proposal to increase that number to 61% (+3%) for the end of year, 2022-2023.
We will maintain preteach and morning tutoring in the morning.
We will have tier II math time with math aides trained to help small groups of students with targeted math skills.
Purchasing additional devices (Chromebooks) to help with the tier II time where programs like iReady can be done with math mini lessons.
Proposal to use school funds to purchase a ½ FTE that will help lower the class size numbers of a large grade.
Proposal to replace old chromebooks, $11,000 approx for new Chromebooks for next year.
Question: Should we spend the money on Chromebooks or on math aides?
Motion to approve the proposed goals, by Megan, 2nd by Rebecca. Motion for reading and math carries, unanimous.

Every school receives School LAND Trust Program funding based on the school’s student enrollment. The interest and dividend income from the State Treasurer’s investment of the permanent State School Fund is distributed through a primarily enrollment based formula prescribed in the law. The funds flow through the school district, but districts do not withhold any funds.
The school district’s business office enters expenditures at the end of each school year. The principal then explains the expenditures in the Final Report. This allows policymakers, administrators, and the public to see where the trust dollars are being spent and what results are being achieved at each school.
