Implementation Summary

For the 2017-2018 school year our LAND Trust Plan included the implementation of Big Eight strategies with a focus on giving teachers tools to increase student engagement. Funds were used to hire a para professional to staff our computer lab, the purchase ofEureka software to enhance math instruction before school, after school and during independent practice and iPads were purchased for classroom use with additional funds.

The Purpose and Duties of the School Community Council:

School community councils are responsible for preparing plans that are submitted to the school board for approval. They also should assist, as needed, and provide support for the implementation of the approved plans. School community council members are to represent the group that elected them to the school community council, as they make decisions and bring issues to the school community council for consideration.

They may form subcommittees or task forces to address an issue or project and bring it to the school community council for approval. They are a good resource to school and district administrators in bringing issues of concern forward and in providing feedback, upon request.

The school plans for which the School Community Council has responsibility for developing are as follows:

  • The School Improvement Plan
  • The School LAND Trust Plan
  • The Reading Achievement Plan
  • The Child Access Routing Plan
  • They also assist in the development of the Professional Development Plan, but this plan is ultimately approved and submitted by staff.
