Agenda Item #1: Welcome and approve minutes

Agenda Item #2: Update on school Land Trust budget and other information-Principal Foster-
Review of the remaining budget. Allocated $195,000 total, remaining monies are about $47,000.

Remaining money allotted for teacher conference will be rolled over for next year. We still have
the $2,000 allotted for digital citizenship. We can carry over 10% of our budget for this years
for next year’s plan. Special Ed. Aide didn’t work out again. Monies are set aside for salaries
for summer school but may possibly use this money for summer training for teachers. Cache
High offers summer school and can do it more efficiently, so we may go that route. Next year’s
Trust Land budget will be about $15,000 more than this year, at $212,000.
School Leadership team met yesterday to come up with next year’s goals. Next month these
goals will be finalized so we can work on the school improvement plan. When making the goals
for the plan, we are working on the previous year’s data. This year’s goals were based on UT
Aspire plus. Shooting for a 1-2 % increase in test scores for 9th and 10th grades. The ACT and
Ap Pass rate goal will remain the same.
Science scores appear low at 48.6 % proficient but are higher than the state average score.
Aspire test is new so it could be attributed to these lower test results.

Today is the last day for the practice ACT for Juniors.
ACT study sessions for Math will be after school on 2/18/20, English 2/20
State ACT for Juniors will be March 3
Pre- Act for sophomores- March 3-different from practice act., more detailed data, the school pays
for this pre -ACT test.

Approved changes to student council combined Exec and Reps and will be called Student
Council, additional members will be added, totaling about 20 members.

Agenda Item #3: Update from counseling office-Alex Hansen
District may be changing how registration is done, possibly from Power school and student
choice. Students would be able to choose classes and teachers within the framework of
required graduation classes. Still looking at pros and cons. Most schools in our district are
moving in this direction. This would allow students to have more choices. Emma suggested
that students choose a class and not the teacher. All this month of February the counseling office will be
working on schedules for next year with makeup days in March. Student demand is driving the schedule now, the concern that if students switch to this way of registration, they may not be able to
make changes to class schedule in time to meet demands.

Agenda Item #4: Digital Citizenship update- Bonnie Odd-
Collin Kartchner raised his rates for traveling to Cache Co. $1000 more ($500 per assembly).

Brittany decided not to schedule him because of increased costs. Bonnie and Brittany feel this
subject is adequately covered currently in our school. May release video was done by the district to

Agenda item #5: Parking Lot Safety discussion- Decided to have the school resource officer
more present in the parking lot. The other part of the teacher parking lot opened starting yesterday.
After school hrs. northside pickup is encouraged for the student to pick up; the west side of the school is
best for before and after school.

Agenda item #6: Upcoming school events: ACT test for Juniors March 3, Pre ACT for
sophomores -March 3, ACT study sessions 2/18 for math and English 2/20 after school
