MEETING SCHEDULE for School Year 2011-2012
All meetings will be held at 10 am on the following dates
SCHOOL COMMUNITY COUNCIL HANDOUT was given to each member. We reviewed the duties and responsibilities of the council members. Website was provided to council for information about their duties responsibilities. Information on elections and open meetings are also found at www.schoollandtrust.org.
Council watched 2 training DVDs. Trust Land proposals must show an academic need and also show how it will increase students learning.
Time was turned over to Mr. Ken Nielson. Mr. Nielson reviewed last years "NO CHILD Left Behind" AYP reports. Millard County School District was a passing district and also Delta High School was a passing school last year. Math scores are still a concern. DHS is now using NWEA testing. Teachers must have a professional growth plan in place and by using NWEA they are able to have immediate test results. They can test 3 times a year.
Millard School District is beginning to offer online classes to their students.
Council quickly reviewed DHS Mission Statement, the DRSL and the School Improvement Plan. Council would like some time to go over these and discuss them at the next meeting.
