7. Safety Drills Report

Julia Winfree wants to do another fire drill.  They are still installing Telecenter U before they can do the next drill.  The district also wants to be in attendance at that fire drill to see if the new system works well.


8. Review of Councils Stewardship Items

Land Trust and TSSA funds

Both the Land trust funds and the TSSA may seem over or under spent.  That is not actually the case as some of the money in         one can be rolled over into the other.  Overall it should all add up.

Positive Behavior Plans, School Safety plan, and Digital Citizenship

They are excited to start the ‘Thrive Time Plan’ as it will give a framework for a lot of the disparate Behavior plans that they             have.  It will also clarify some of the existing general behavior expectations.


9. Principals Report and Discussion on TSSP and Land Trust

In summary, there is very encouraging evidence that what they are currently doing is working well.  Both the math metrics and reading metrics are seeing marked improvements over all grades. To stay in budget next year, they plan to use 4 interventionists instead of 6.  They will be using more tier 1 training.  The licenses with ST math and Lexia have been proved to be strong tools and worth the license fees.

-Data Slide Show

Council asked general clarifying questions.  The plan was carefully planned and the council had no further recommendations.

There was general appreciation for the emotional support that Glacier Hills is investing in.
