School Improvement Plan & Trust Land
School Year 2021-22
Trustland Goals for 2021-22 school year.
This year Greenville has a goal to improve in the following ways:
Goal #1 - Language Arts:
We had 65% of Greenville Elementary students in grades K-5 who scored on benchmark based on the Acadience Reading Composite Score (RCS) in the Fall 2020 testing. In the December 2020 testing session, 73% of Greenville Elementary students in grades K-5 scored benchmark based on the Acadience Reading Composite Score (RCS). This was a 8% increase compared to the previous year’s 5% increase. Our goal is to increase the percent of students scoring benchmark or higher on the Acadience Reading Composite Score (RCS) on the mid year assessment from this year’s 73% at benchmark to 76% in grades K-5 during the 2021-22 school year.
We will take the Acadience Reading Composite Score (RCS) in the Fall, Winter, and Spring of 2020-21 school year. Grade Benchmark Score for Middle of Year K 122 1 130 2 190 3 285 4 330 5 372
We will reach our goal by providing quality Tier I instruction to all students. We will use testing data provided through Acadience Reading benchmark assessments and classroom assessments. Students who have not made adequate progress toward the goal will receive additional systematic reading instruction through the use of evidence-based Tier 2 reading programs. These students will also be monitored through Acadience progress monitoring fluency assessments. We will purchase a read-aloud book per family for each family in our school to read at home as part of a school-wide reading activity where we will have educational and motivational activities to enhance reading skills and the love of reading. Our plan to implement and use the Trustlands funding is as follows:
We will hire and train aides to teach a Tier II reading program ($45,410).
We will purchase consumable materials for students in Tier I and Tier II reading and purchase a book for the school to read as families ($1,700).
Goal #2 - Mathematics:
We will focus on increasing our percentage of students who are proficient or highly efficient on the Rise Test. We had an average proficiency of 62% on the math portion of the Rise Test in the 2018-19 school year. In the 2019-20 school year the State cancelled the RISE test because of COVID. We would like to raise our average proficiency by 2% this year (from 62% to 64%) with the assistance of additional math aides in the classrooms and the addition of math tutoring. We will use Trustland money to hire additional math aides and pay for teachers to provide before or after school math tutoring.
We will give end-of-chapter tests as formative and summative assessments to ensure that the students are gaining the needed skills to be successful on the end-of-year RISE test. The measurement for our goal will be the end-of-year RISE test.
We will reach our goal by providing quality math instruction. Using testing data provided through classroom assessments, students who are identified as not making adequate progress toward the goal will receive additional systematic math instruction through the use of evidence-based math programs. With the State of Utah’s soft closure, we anticipate gaps in the students’ math progress. The aides will help target those gaps for students in need. Our plan to implement and use the Trustlands funding is as follows:
We will hire and train aides to teach math concepts and have them work with students in class ($25,551).
We will purchase Reflex Math ($2,966) and have students access it at school and at home to increase their math skills.

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.
