Staffing, online/inperson – Parents will be asked to declare in person vs. online for the next grading period. This should be coming out soon to parents. These declarations will affect staffing within each school. Quarantines are school and grade specific. Granite has zero cases.
Canvas – Used more readily by 4-5th grades. Those grades can move from in-person to online quickly. The lower grades are not as flexible. Lower grades will not have instant access to classroom materials. Parents of kids in the lower grades will need to work with teachers individually. Each classroom will be a bit different.
Communication – Currently, there is a separate group communication for kids in online instruction. All information going to students is on the school website, regardless of online or in-person school.
Mitigation, staffing, students online/in-person, Canvas expectation, access curriculum success and adjustments
Communication – skylert, website
After the first grading period
PTC -Parent Teacher Conf – All virtual conferences. Parents can sign up now. Teachers can use Zoom unless a child is on the call. Then, the teacher has to move to Google Meets. Google Meets has better safety filters. Zoom has more flexibility.

Motion – Katie D
2nd – Kelly F
Ronnie would also like to add field trips to the TSSA budget in the future.
Cell Budget – Ronnie is requesting $2000 from the Cell Budget for “pat on the back” ideas for the teachers. Comments – As long as there is the reserve, spending what the cell tower brings in will keep our budget safe.

Motion – Katie D
2nd – Laura W
Karla Mchale fundraiser discussion
Karla McHale – visitor, presented thoughts on an SCC fundraiser for a big ticket item for the school. She suggested a silent auction. Comments – What are our big ticket needs? What is the timing? What would another fundraiser look like? Is it needed. Decided that Katie D will send out a poll to the teachers asking for big ticket school need ideas. We can also run the ideas past students for a possible vote. Timing for the fundraiser will have to be after the pandemic when families aren’t feeling so much stress. But the ideas and planning can start now.
Current year roster of committee members will be online shortly.
Landtrust budget and goals update: Approximately 80% of students are reaching benchmark in reading and math according to Dibels. We will continue implementing best practices such as: small group/skills-based instruction, Tier II intervention, robust core instruction, etc. to maintain success. 84% of students are at or above benchmark according to the RI assessment. Our goal is to maintain proficiency and increase the ROI by 1-2 word per week for those not yet reaching benchmark. 73% of students are reaching benchmark according to the Dibels early release math assessment. Our goal is to increase this number by 5%.
TSSA: Our goal is to increase by 4% to 82% proficiency. For those students below benchmark show a rate of improvement (ROI) of 1-2 words per week. Our goal is to maintain and/or increase 2% proficiency on Acadience math assessment by spring benchmark
