Serving on the School Community Council

Serving on the Community Council is a great way for parents and teachers to contribute and help improve academic performance at our school.  The school receives an annual adjusted amount from the school trust lands.  Our council decides how these funds will be used. 

If you are interested in becoming a member of our Community Council, please see Mr. Stevens or Mrs. Kim Saul in the school office.

Valley Elementary 2016-2017 Summary of the Final Report of School Trust Lands Funding

 

For the school year 2016-2017 Valley Elementary received $24,304 to be spent in academic areas to help improve student achievement. The School Community Council (SCC) set goals and allotted money in certain areas to be spent in helping achieve the set goals.

The SCC set two goals for the year. The first goal was to have 91% of students in grades K-6 (including Special Education students) reach benchmark on the Dibels Fluency Test administered in the Spring of 2017.

The second goal was to have 78% of students in grades K-6 be proficient in Math by May 1, 2017. To accomplish these two goals, the committee allocated $9191 to hire a math paraprofessional to help with Tier II interventions with students. The committee further allocated the following:

  • $1330 to hire a guest author/writer from BYU and to purchase annual periodicals
  • $1486 for general supplies to help the math paraprofessional and to supply the after school Science Club
  • $4207 was used to purchase new books for our Accelerated Reading Program
  • $4041 was used to purchase software programs for students
  • $4049 was used to purchase new Chromebooks to replace old and broken equipment
  • $440 was carried over to the 2017-2018 school year

Although we did not achieve the goals we did improve our student’s scores by the end of the year. Valley elementary School improved from 71% to 79% proficient on the DIBELS testing. In our math goal we set to attain 78% proficiency as a school. The previous year our school was 74% proficient in Math and this year we achieved 75% proficiency. We did not reach our goals, but we did improve our scores and that is considered a success.

All of us here at Valley Elementary want to thank the School Community Council, the teachers, students, parents, District Administrators, State Legislators, and State Administrators for helping our children succeed.
