I wanted to take a moment to inform all of you about our school community council.  This is a group of parents and teachers that meet together with the principal to give input on school goals and decide how some money is spent each year.  This money is called School land trust money and is given to us by the state.  Last year we were allocated $30,302 by the state.  We spent $22,608 on tutors to help our students, $100 on professional services, $411 on a computer based writing program for our 3rd and 4th graders, and $4,520 on voice amplification systems for our classrooms.  This money was well spent and we have seen a lot of improvement in our student learning. 
This year we are looking at 3 school wide goals, and are using our money to achieve those. 
Goal #1 - Grades K-5 : 95% receive rubric score of 3 on end of year literacy placement test, or make 20% gain
Goal #2 - Grades K-5 : 95% produce writing that will score >= 3 on grade level writing rubrics, or make 20% gain
Goal #3 - Grades K-5 : 95% receive rubric score of 3 on end of year math placement test, or make 20% gain
To achieve these goals we are using our money this year on some similar items.  20,322 is being spent on our tutors for reading and math.  $472 for headphones for students to use while using Imagine Learning.  $1,142 for a voice amplification system, $1,200 on a phonics program for students and $4,737 for chromeboxes to replace computers that have broken down. 
This money is a great support to our school, and allows us to decide what our greatest needs are and how we can meet those needs.
