Lake View Community Council Minutes

Meeting Date: January 9, 2018                                               Meeting Time: 3:00
Meeting Location: Library     
Members Present: Kappy Williams, Julie Taylor, Alisa Baron, Dacia Stone, Mark Johnson
Members Absent:   Nicole Jensen, Greg Christensen, Shayle Holman
Financial Report- Trust land funding for this year’s plan is: $57,700.   

Plan Implementation Report-
In follow-up from the last meeting, the principal gathered information as requested by the council.  Information was gathered due to the following situation:
·         From last meeting on October 10, 2017---We also discussed the fact that we need to amend our plan.  Last year, we had planned to bring in Jan Hasbrouk to meet with our teachers.  That plan did not work out and so we now have that money, $5,500, to use for something else.  The members present asked me to get with Mandy, our literacy coach, as well as teachers, and see what ideas they might have.

Mandy Stokes, the literacy coach attended the October meeting at the request of the principal.  At the request of the parent members, several ideas were shared with the council by the teacher members as well as Mandy Stokes, the literacy coach.  These included:
·         Audio enhancement systems
·         An intervention system or program to be used with upper grades students who struggle with reading
·         Additional progress monitoring services to be provided to students of all grades who need extra help
·         Financing the purchase of books to address a specific fluency need at the 2nd grade level
·         Buying more copies of books so that our larger, more advanced reading groups, have better access to literature on their level.

In mid-December, our amendment was approved.
In the November meeting, it was decided that if our amendment was approved, we would use our remaining funds to purchase reading intervention materials that would help some of our struggling readers in the upper grades.  On January 4, 2018, that kit was purchased.

In mid-December, two additional reading aides were hired to provide progress monitoring services.
1.       Phonics Lesson library from 95% Group was purchased for $1,275.00.
2.      Two additional aides were hired to do progress monitoring.

 New items
Action Items
Nicole Jensen made a motion that we create an amendment to our current land-trust plan. She suggested that we use the $5,500 in question to finance the purchase of upper grades reading intervention materials and that the balance of the funds be used to pay a staff member(s) to provide reading progress monitoring services to more students in need of these services at our school.
Alisa Baron seconded the motion.  Then all present members of the council voted unanimously to submit this amendment request to the district for review.      
Other items
Next meeting: December 5, 2017, library at 3:00.


This is the Land Trust plan for 2017-2018 as voted on by the council:

 Goal
  • Reading


Our goal is to improve reading achievement at our school. Specifically, to have 84% of our students at benchmark, or grade level, by the end of the school year.
Academic Areas
Measurements
We will use the DIBELS score to determine if students are at benchmark. DIBELS will be administered three times during the school year. The first administration will be in September. The second administration will be in January.  The third and final DIBELS assessment will be in May.  The final assessment of the school year will be used to determine whether we reached our goal.
Action Plan Steps
A. Lake View will provide professional development for our teachers.  We have asked Jan Hasbrouk to come and present to our teachers on August 21st.

B. Lake View will purchase some Scholastic periodicals for tier 1 reading. We will purchase Scope for 5th grade, Story Works for 4th grade and Story Works Jr. for 3rd grade. The cost of these is calculated per student.

C. Lake View will purchase a reading intervention kit designed for grades 3-5. We will purchase teacher materials as well as several copies of the student texts. This kit is designed to re-mediate students who have deficits in basic skills. It is made by Reading Mastery.

D. Lake View will continue to implement small group reading intervention for grades K-3. We have been conducting these groups since February 21st of 2014 and we have seen very positive results. For the 2017-2018 school year, we plan to implement these groups from the beginning of the school year.

Lake View will provide professional development for both aides and teachers on an ongoing basis. We will be able to pay aides to attend and teachers to pay for substitutes as needed.

To follow is a summary of how these reading groups will be formed and conducted:
1. Students will be grouped according to skill need, not based on guided reading levels. Skill needs will be based on a combination of DIBELS results and the results of the BEPA and BEPAST assessments.
2. Each student in grades 1-3 will be placed in a group which will meet daily for 45 minutes.
3. All students will be involved in a group during their grade level's assigned reading intervention time. There will be no independent work center time.
4. Aides and teachers will work together and all will lead a group of their own.
5. We will provide as many groups as our budget will allow.  We will make the groups as small as possible and therefore, improve their effectiveness.
6. Progress will be monitored and students will switch groups or progress within their group as is appropriate.
7. Assessments will be completed regularly by the adult in charge of each group so that we can monitor student progress. Each program we are using includes a built-in assessment.
8. All kindergarten students will receive a 30 minute small group instruction time. 9. The instructional day for all half-day kindergarten students will be extended by 30 minutes. This 30 minute time period is when the small group reading instruction will be provided to kindergarten students.
10. The kindergarten groups will not be considered intervention groups. Targeted instruction will be provided using a direct instruction, phonics and phonemic awareness program. ALL kindergarten students will be taken through this program. The completion of this program by ALL kindergarten students will establish a solid foundation for them and will hopefully prevent gaps in learning. Our goal is to move away from intervention on a large scale.
Here is our time line for implementation of the plan:
1. Kindergarten testing, Aug 28-Sept 1. The BEPAST test will be administered to all incoming kindergarten students.
2. 1-3 testing, Sept 3-14. The BEPA will be administered to all 1-3 grade students.
3. Teachers, aides and the literacy coach will work together to determine appropriate placement of students into groups. (Ongoing)
3. Professional Development for aides. 1-Sep Training on intervention groups using BEPA and BEPAST data.  Training on other programs as determined by the literacy coach.  
4. All K-3 reading groups should begin on September 18th.
5. Grades 4-5 reading groups will begin at about this same time. They will start once students have been assessed using the BEPA.

Rules and Order of Procedure used in our meetings:
Robert's Rules of Order - Summary Version
For Fair and Orderly Meetings & Conventions


Provides common rules and procedures for deliberation and debate in order to place the whole membership on the same footing and speaking the same language. The conduct of ALL business is controlled by the general will of the whole membership - the right of the deliberate majority to decide. Complementary is the right of at least a strong minority to require the majority to be deliberate - to act according to its considered judgment AFTER a full and fair "working through" of the issues involved. Robert's Rules provides for constructive and democratic meetings, to help, not hinder, the business of the assembly. Under no circumstances should "undue strictness" be allowed to intimidate members or limit full participation. 





The fundamental right of deliberative assemblies require all questions to be thoroughly discussed before taking action!


The assembly rules - they have the final say on everything! Silence means consent! 

Guidelines
·         Obtain the floor (the right to speak) by being the first to stand when the person speaking has finished; state Mr./Madam Chairman. Raising your hand means nothing, and standing while another has the floor is out of order! Must be recognized by the Chair before speaking!
·         Debate can not begin until the Chair has stated the motion or resolution and asked "are you ready for the question?" If no one rises, the chair calls for the vote!
·         Before the motion is stated by the Chair (the question) members may suggest modification of the motion; the mover can modify as he pleases, or even withdraw the motion without consent of the seconder; if mover modifies, the seconder can withdraw the second.
·         The "immediately pending question" is the last question stated by the Chair! Motion/Resolution - Amendment - Motion to Postpone
·         The member moving the "immediately pending question" is entitled to preference to the floor!
·         No member can speak twice to the same issue until everyone else wishing to speak has spoken to it once!
·         All remarks must be directed to the Chair. Remarks must be courteous in language and deportment - avoid all personalities, never allude to others by name or to motives!
·         The agenda and all committee reports are merely recommendations! When presented to the assembly and the question is stated, debate begins and changes occur!
The Rules
·         Point of Privilege: Pertains to noise, personal comfort, etc. - may interrupt only if necessary!
·         Parliamentary Inquiry: Inquire as to the correct motion - to accomplish a desired result, or raise a point of order
·         Point of Information: Generally applies to information desired from the speaker: "I should like to ask the (speaker) a question."
·         Orders of the Day (Agenda): A call to adhere to the agenda (a deviation from the agenda requires Suspending the Rules)
·         Point of Order: Infraction of the rules, or improper decorum in speaking. Must be raised immediately after the error is made
·         Main Motion: Brings new business (the next item on the agenda) before the assembly
·         Divide the Question: Divides a motion into two or more separate motions (must be able to stand on their own)
·         Consider by Paragraph: Adoption of paper is held until all paragraphs are debated and amended and entire paper is satisfactory; after all paragraphs are considered, the entire paper is then open to amendment, and paragraphs may be further amended. Any Preamble can not be considered until debate on the body of the paper has ceased.
·         Amend: Inserting or striking out words or paragraphs, or substituting whole paragraphs or resolutions
·         Withdraw/Modify Motion: Applies only after question is stated; mover can accept an amendment without obtaining the floor
·         Commit /Refer/Recommit to Committee: State the committee to receive the question or resolution; if no committee exists include size of committee desired and method of selecting the members (election or appointment).

*must have a quorum present
The committee members present voted unanimously to pass the land trust plan as attached. The motion was put forward by Julie Taylor and seconded by Alisa Baron.

Other items

Next meeting: (date, time, location) May 2, 2017, first grade quad at 3:00.

This is the Land Trust plan for 2017-2018 as voted on by the council:

 Goal

Our goal is to improve reading achievement at our school. Specifically, to have 84% of our students at benchmark, or grade level, by the end of the school year.
Academic Areas
  • Reading
Measurements
We will use the DIBELS score to determine if students are at benchmark. DIBELS will be administered three times during the school year. The first administration will be in September. The second administration will be in January.  The third and final DIBELS assessment will be in May.  The  final assessment of the school year will be used to determine whether we reached our goal.
Action Plan Steps
A. Lake View will provide professional development for our teachers.  We have asked Jan Hasbrouk to come and present to our teachers on August 21st.

B. Lake View will purchase some Scholastic periodicals for tier 1 reading. We will purchase Scope for 5th grade, Story Works for 4th grade and Story Works Jr. for 3rd grade. The cost of these is calculated per student.

C. Lake View will purchase a reading intervention kit designed for grades 3-5. We will purchase teacher materials as well as several copies of the student texts. This kit is designed to re-mediate students who have deficits in basic skills. It is made by Reading Mastery.

D. Lake View will continue to implement small group reading intervention for grades K-3. We have been conducting these groups since February 21st of 2014 and we have seen very positive results. For the 2017-2018 school year, we plan to implement these groups from the beginning of the school year.

Lake View will provide professional development for both aides and teachers on an ongoing basis. We will be able to pay aides to attend and teachers to pay for substitutes as needed.

To follow is a summary of how these reading groups will be formed and conducted:
1. Students will be grouped according to skill need, not based on guided reading levels. Skill needs will be based on a combination of DIBELS results and the results of t he BEPA and BEPAST assessments.
2. Each student in grades 1-3 will be placed in a group which will meet daily for 45 minutes.
3. All students will be involved in a group during their grade level's assigned reading intervention time. There will be no independent work center time.
4. Aides and teachers will work together and all will lead a group of their own.
5. We will provide as many groups as our budget will allow.  We will make the groups as small as possible and therefore, improve their effectiveness.
6. Progress will be monitored and students will switch groups or progress within their group as is appropriate.
7. Assessments will be completed regularly by the adult in charge of each group so that we can monitor student progress. Each program we are using includes a built-in assessment.
8. All kindergarten students will receive a 30 minute small group instruction time. 9. The instructional day for all half-day kindergarten students will be extended by 30 minutes. This 30 minute time period is when the small group reading instruction will be provided to kindergarten students.
10. The kindergarten groups will not be considered intervention groups. Targeted instruction will be provided using a direct instruction, phonics and phonemic awareness program. ALL kindergarten students will be taken through this program. The completion of this program by ALL kindergarten students will establish a solid foundation for them and will hopefully prevent gaps in learning. Our goal is to move away from intervention on a large scale.
Here is our time line for implementation of the plan:
1. Kindergarten testing,           Aug 28-Sept 1.        The BEPAST test will be administered to all incoming kindergarten students.
2. 1-3 testing,          Sept 3-14 The BEPA will be administered to all 1-3 grade students.
3. Teachers, aides and the literacy coach will work together to determine appropriate placement of students into groups. (Ongoing)
3. Professional Development for aides    1-Sep Training on intervention groups using BEPA and BEPAST data.  Training on other programs as determined by the literacy coach.  
4. All K-3 reading groups should begin on September 18th.
5. Grades 4-5 reading groups will begin at about this same time. They will start once students have been assessed using the BEPA.












Our next meeting will be held on March 28, 2017 at 3:00 in the first grade quad. All are invited to attend.

Action Items *must have a quorum present

Other items
A discussion was held on the land trust plan for next year.  Several ideas were suggested and the cost of these suggestions were discussed.  First of all it decided in general to maintain the existing reading plan that the land trust funds supported this year.  Then the council discussed how best to use the additional funds that have been allocated for next year.  Hiring an additional aide, purchasing new chrome books, paying for professional development for both teachers and aides, purchasing teaching resources were all discussed.  In the end the council decided to ask the principal to speak with the school team leaders and get their suggestions.  The council wants to know what needs the teachers have.  The principal will report back to the council at the next meeting which will be held soon. 

Next meeting: (date, time, location) March 28, 2017, first grade quad at 3:00.

Other items
A discussion was held about reading groups.  The school recently set goals for each classroom, grade and school-wide for reading achievement.  The principal and literacy coach recently met with each grade level team and examined data from last year’s DIBELS and the beginning of this year.  Using that, a goal was set for the classroom and grade level.   Intermediate benchmarks were set for each as well.  At a faculty meeting soon afterward, the school set the goal to have 79% of all students on grade level per the end of year DIBELS test.
This process was described to the council members as well as PD that is taking place in support of this effort.  The evolution of the reading program was discussed.  It was reported that the teachers and aides are in better shape than ever due to supplies and training.  The new literacy coach is also making a big and positive difference.

Notes 12/6/16

-          Lunch Schedules-Discussion regarding amount of time for eating and whether break comes before or after lunch.
Lacey Olsen mentioned that after reading an article on KSL and sharing it with another parent, there were concerns regarding whether the students were getting enough food and time to play.  Those present were informed that because of the way Mr. Johnson has set up lunches, every grade gets the same amount of eating and playing time and students are not allowed to leave the lunch room unless they have eaten.

-          Lake View math program-tier 1 instruction, BELS, interventions, coaching for teachers, formative and new BELS assessments, reading instruction, etc.
The members were informed of what the faculty at the school are doing to improve math teaching and scores.  They received an explanation about interventions being conducted at the school, about how the coaches can individualize teacher improvement with the help of technology (Swivl© cam).  The council members were also informed of BELS and what are they as well as what is being done to keep track of student improvement including effective PLC meetings. 
Reading was also addressed and the members were informed of how BEPAs are guiding and helping instruction. 

Lacey Olsen brought up the idea of having a community garden and the school.  Because there weren’t enough present, that idea may be discussed in a future meeting.
The meeting adjourned at 3:30 and the next meeting was ratified to be held on January 10th at 3:00 p.m.

Last year, kindergarten improved from 44% to 75% on benchmark
Last year, first grade improved from 55% to 65%
Last year second grade stayed at around 65% from the beginning to the end of the year. 
This year, first grade is starting at 77% and second grade is starting at 76%.   That is quite a bit better as a starting point.

Rules and Order of Procedure used in our meetings:
Robert's Rules of Order - Summary Version
For Fair and Orderly Meetings & Conventions


Provides common rules and procedures for deliberation and debate in order to place the whole membership on the same footing and speaking the same language. The conduct of ALL business is controlled by the general will of the whole membership - the right of the deliberate majority to decide. Complementary is the right of at least a strong minority to require the majority to be deliberate - to act according to its considered judgment AFTER a full and fair "working through" of the issues involved. Robert's Rules provides for constructive and democratic meetings, to help, not hinder, the business of the assembly. Under no circumstances should "undue strictness" be allowed to intimidate members or limit full participation. 






The fundamental right of deliberative assemblies require all questions to be thoroughly discussed before taking action!


The assembly rules - they have the final say on everything! Silence means consent! 


Guidelines
·         Obtain the floor (the right to speak) by being the first to stand when the person speaking has finished; state Mr./Madam Chairman. Raising your hand means nothing, and standing while another has the floor is out of order! Must be recognized by the Chair before speaking!
·         Debate can not begin until the Chair has stated the motion or resolution and asked "are you ready for the question?" If no one rises, the chair calls for the vote!
·         Before the motion is stated by the Chair (the question) members may suggest modification of the motion; the mover can modify as he pleases, or even withdraw the motion without consent of the seconder; if mover modifies, the seconder can withdraw the second.
·         The "immediately pending question" is the last question stated by the Chair! Motion/Resolution - Amendment - Motion to Postpone
·         The member moving the "immediately pending question" is entitled to preference to the floor!
·         No member can speak twice to the same issue until everyone else wishing to speak has spoken to it once!
·         All remarks must be directed to the Chair. Remarks must be courteous in language and deportment - avoid all personalities, never allude to others by name or to motives!
·         The agenda and all committee reports are merely recommendations! When presented to the assembly and the question is stated, debate begins and changes occur!
The Rules
·         Point of Privilege: Pertains to noise, personal comfort, etc. - may interrupt only if necessary!
·         Parliamentary Inquiry: Inquire as to the correct motion - to accomplish a desired result, or raise a point of order
·         Point of Information: Generally applies to information desired from the speaker: "I should like to ask the (speaker) a question."
·         Orders of the Day (Agenda): A call to adhere to the agenda (a deviation from the agenda requires Suspending the Rules)
·         Point of Order: Infraction of the rules, or improper decorum in speaking. Must be raised immediately after the error is made
·         Main Motion: Brings new business (the next item on the agenda) before the assembly
·         Divide the Question: Divides a motion into two or more separate motions (must be able to stand on their own)
·         Consider by Paragraph: Adoption of paper is held until all paragraphs are debated and amended and entire paper is satisfactory; after all paragraphs are considered, the entire paper is then open to amendment, and paragraphs may be further amended. Any Preamble can not be considered until debate on the body of the paper has ceased.
·         Amend: Inserting or striking out words or paragraphs, or substituting whole paragraphs or resolutions
·         Withdraw/Modify Motion: Applies only after question is stated; mover can accept an amendment without obtaining the floor
·         Commit /Refer/Recommit to Committee: State the committee to receive the question or resolution; if no committee exists include size of committee desired and method of selecting the members (election or appointment).
·         Extend Debate: Applies only to the immediately pending question; extends until a certain time or for a certain period of time
·         Limit Debate: Closing debate at a certain time, or limiting to a certain period of time
·         Postpone to a Certain Time: State the time the motion or agenda item will be resumed
·         Object to Consideration: Objection must be stated before discussion or another motion is stated
·         Lay on the Table: Temporarily suspends further consideration/action on pending question; may be made after motion to close debate has carried or is pending
·         Take from the Table: Resumes consideration of item previously "laid on the table" - state the motion to take from the table
·         Reconsider: Can be made only by one on the prevailing side who has changed position or view
·         Postpone Indefinitely: Kills the question/resolution for this session - exception: the motion to reconsider can be made this session
·         Previous Question: Closes debate if successful - may be moved to "Close Debate" if preferred
·         Informal Consideration: Move that the assembly go into "Committee of the Whole" - informal debate as if in committee; this committee may limit number or length of speeches or close debate by other means by a 2/3 vote. All votes, however, are formal.
·         Appeal Decision of the Chair: Appeal for the assembly to decide - must be made before other business is resumed; NOT debatable if relates to decorum, violation of rules or order of business
·         Suspend the Rules: Allows a violation of the assembly's own rules (except Constitution); the object of the suspension must be specified

To follow is the 2015-2016 Lake View Elementary School land trust plan. Lake View implemented the plan exactly as stated below. A new plan for 2016-2017 has now been implemented.  It is found immediately after the 2015-2016 plan posted here.  

Goal #1

Goal
Our goal is to improve reading achievement at our school. Specifically, to have 80% of our students at benchmark, or grade level, by the end of the school year.

Academic Areas
·                     Reading

Measurements
We will use the DIBELS score to determine if students are at benchmark. DIBELS will be administered three times during the school year. Once on September 15 and 16, 2015. The second administration will be January 19 and 20, 2015. The third and final DIBELS assessment will be on May 9 and 10, 2016. The assessments on May 9 and 10 will be the final assessment of the school year and will be used to determine whether we reached our goal.

Action Plan Steps
Lake View will continue to implement small group reading intervention for grades K-3. We have been conducting these groups since February 21st of 2014 and so far we have seen very positive results. For the 2015-2016 school year, we plan to implement these groups from the beginning of the school year. These groups will be different from the traditional guided reading groups which the district has been conducting for several years. To follow is a summary of the groups:

 1. Students will be grouped according to skill need, not based on guided reading levels. Skill needs will be based on a combination of DIBELS results and the results of the PAA and QPS assessments. 2. Each student in grades 1-3 will be placed in a group which will meet daily for 45 minutes. 

3. All students will be involved in a group during their grade level's assigned reading intervention time. There will be no independent work center time. 

4. Aides and teachers as a team will conduct the groups. 

5. We will provide as many groups as our budget will allow to make the groups as small as possible and therefore, improve their effectiveness.

 6. Progress will be monitored and students will switch groups or progress within their group as is appropriate. 

7. Assessments will be completed regularly to monitor this progress. 

8. All kindergarten students will receive a 30 minute small group instruction time. 

9. The instructional day half-day kindergarten students will be extended by 30 minutes. This 30 minute time period is when the small group reading instruction will be provided to kindergarten students. 

10. The kindergarten groups will not be considered intervention groups. 

Targeted instruction will be provided using a direct instruction, phonics and phonemic awareness program. ALL kindergarten students will be taken through this program. The completion of this program by ALL kindergarten students will establish a solid foundation for them and will hopefully prevent gaps in learning.



Our goal is to move away from intervention on a large scale. Here is our time line for implementation of the plan:

1. Kindergarten testing, Aug 31-Sept 3 The PAA test will be administered to all incoming kindergarteners 

2. 1-3 testing, Sept 3-14 QPS administered to all 1-3 grade students 

3. Professional Development for aides 3-Sep Training on intervention groups using QPS data 

4. Professional Development for aides, 9-Sep Training on Reading Mastery or other direct instruction program as selected and in harmony with district literacy plan 5. DIBELS testing for all grades, September 15 and 16 

6. Form groups using PAA, QPS and DIBELS data, Sept 17-18 Literacy coach, principal, teachers and aides will team to create these groups. Last minute PD to be provided as necessary. 

7. Groups begin 21-Sep

Here are the results from last year’s plan.
This is the measurement identified in the plan to determine if the goal was reached.
We will use the DIBELS score to determine if students are at benchmark. DIBELS will be administered three times during the school year. Once on September 15 and 16, 2015. The second administration will be January 19 and 20, 2015. The third and final DIBELS assessment will be on May 9 and 10, 2016. The assessments on May 9 and 10 will be the final assessment of the school year and will be used to determine whether we reached our goal.
Please show the before and after measurements and how academic performance was improved.
We are using DIBELS scores to show progress towards the goals.  I will list DIBELS composite scores for each grade level at the beginning of the year and the end of the year.  The percentage listed is the percentage of students at benchmark at that time of year:

2016-2017 School Land Trust plan for Lake View Elementary
Goal #1
Goal
Our goal is to improve reading achievement at our school. Specifically, to have 80% of our students at benchmark, or grade level, by the end of the school year.
Academic Areas
  • Reading
Measurements
We will use the DIBELS score to determine if students are at benchmark. DIBELS will be administered three times during the school year. The first administration will be in September. The second administration will be in January.  The third and final DIBELS assessment will be in May.  The  final assessment of the school year and will be used to determine whether we reached our goal.
Action Plan Steps
Lake View will continue to implement small group reading intervention for grades K-3. We have been conducting these groups since February 21st of 2014 and we have seen very positive results. For the 2016-2017 school year, we plan to implement these groups from the beginning of the school year.

To follow is a summary of how these reading groups will be formed and conducted:
1. Students will be grouped according to skill need, not based on guided reading levels. Skill needs will be based on a combination of DIBELS results and the results of the PAA and QPS assessments.
2. Each student in grades 1-3 will be placed in a group which will meet daily for 45 minutes.
3. All students will be involved in a group during their grade level's assigned reading intervention time. There will be no independent work center time.
4. Aides and teachers will work together and all will lead a group of their own.
5. We will provide as many groups as our budget will allow.  We will make the groups as small as possible and therefore, improve their effectiveness.
6. Progress will be monitored and students will switch groups or progress within their group as is appropriate.
7. Assessments will be completed regularly by the adult in charge of each group so that we can monitor student progress. Each program we are using includes a built-in assessment.
8. All kindergarten students will receive a 30 minute small group instruction time. 9. The instructional day for all half-day kindergarten students will be extended by 30 minutes. This 30 minute time period is when the small group reading instruction will be provided to kindergarten students.
10. The kindergarten groups will not be considered intervention groups. Targeted instruction will be provided using a direct instruction, phonics and phonemic awareness program. ALL kindergarten students will be taken through this program. The completion of this program by ALL kindergarten students will establish a solid foundation for them and will hopefully prevent gaps in learning. Our goal is to move away from intervention on a large scale.
Here is our time line for implementation of the plan:
1. Kindergarten testing,           Aug 31-Sept 3.        The PAA test will be administered to all incoming kindergarten students.
2. 1-3 testing,          Sept 3-14 The QPS will be administered to all 1-3 grade students.
3. Teachers, aides and the literacy coach will work together to determine appropriate placement of students into groups. (Ongoing)
3. Professional Development for aides    3-Sep Training on intervention groups using BEPS and BEPAS data.  Training on other programs as determined by the literacy coach.  
4. All K-3 reading groups should begin on September 19th.
5. Grades 4-5 reading groups will begin at about this same time. They will start once students have been assessed using the BEPS.

Meeting Notes
Attending: Mark Johnson, Ana Hansen, Brooke Sepulveda, Alisa Baron
There is an increase in the budget of approximately $11,000
It could be used for reading and math aides
The proposed plan was reviewed
Voting was carried out on plan.  Alyssa motioned, those in attendance voted unanimously to accept the plan as written.
It was mentioned that the book Long Way from Chicago was not the favorite, there were concerns about the content, not a fun read for younger students, perhaps too difficult the parents mentioned.
The funding for the books comes from Title 1 and it goes to all six elementary schools that qualify.  The community council members were asked to make recommendations on books to be used in the future. 
Those recommendations can be sent to the district.  Brooke Sepulveda mentioned that there are about $500 from the book fair to be used in the dual immersion program.

Next meeting will be held May 10th at 3:15 in the library.




Agenda for the Community Council Meeting to be held March 29, 2016


  • Review and voting of the completed land trust plan for next year.


Community Council Meeting on March 15, 2016
  
At our last meeting, it was discussed that we would have more money this year in our budget than last year.  Our projected amount for the 2016-2017 school year is $42,257.  The distribution for the 2015-2016 school year was about $33,500.  The council determined that current reading plan should continue as it is.  The entire current land trust budget is being used this year to finance that reading plan for K-3.  
Since there is more money, the council asked the teachers and principal how best to spend the extra money.  The principal and teachers on the council suggested that 4-5 grades could use more extra help since all of the money is currently going to K-3.  The council agreed and the principal was asked to talk to the 4-5 grade teachers to get their ideas. 
The principal did talk to the 4-5 grade teachers and they decided that they would like to have an aide or aides to assist them with their reading groups in the morning.  This was presented to the council.  Council members voted unanimously to proceed with the plan.  The plan will maintain the current k-3 reading groups and add aide time using the additional funds available this year. 
The principal was asked to complete the plan and have it ready for the council to formally vote on.  The next meeting was scheduled for March 29, 2016 at 3:15 in the library.

School Land Trust Plan 2015-2016 Lake View Elementary

Goal #1
Goal
Our goal is to improve reading achievement at our school. Specifically, to have 80% of our students at benchmark, or grade level, by the end of the school year.

Academic Areas
  • Reading

Measurements
We will use the DIBELS score to determine if students are at benchmark. DIBELS will be administered three times during the school year. Once on September 15 and 16, 2015. The second administration will be January 19 and 20, 2015. The third and final DIBELS assessment will be on May 9 and 10, 2016. The assessments on May 9 and 10 will be the final assessment of the school year and will be used to determine whether we reached our goal.

Action Plan Steps
Lake View will continue to implement small group reading intervention for grades K-3. We have been conducting these groups since February 21st of 2014 and so far we have seen very positive results. For the 2015-2016 school year, we plan to implement these groups from the beginning of the school year. These groups will be different from the traditional guided reading groups which the district has been conducting for several years. To follow is a summary of the groups:
 1. Students will be grouped according to skill need, not based on guided reading levels. Skill needs will be based on a combination of DIBELS results and the results of the PAA and QPS assessments. 2. Each student in grades 1-3 will be placed in a group which will meet daily for 45 minutes. 
3. All students will be involved in a group during their grade level's assigned reading intervention time. There will be no independent work center time. 
4. Aides and teachers as a team will conduct the groups. 
5. We will provide as many groups as our budget will allow to make the groups as small as possible and therefore, improve their effectiveness.
 6. Progress will be monitored and students will switch groups or progress within their group as is appropriate. 
7. Assessments will be completed regularly to monitor this progress. 
8. All kindergarten students will receive a 30 minute small group instruction time. 
9. The instructional day half-day kindergarten students will be extended by 30 minutes. This 30 minute time period is when the small group reading instruction will be provided to kindergarten students. 
10. The kindergarten groups will not be considered intervention groups. 
Targeted instruction will be provided using a direct instruction, phonics and phonemic awareness program. ALL kindergarten students will be taken through this program. The completion of this program by ALL kindergarten students will establish a solid foundation for them and will hopefully prevent gaps in learning.

Our goal is to move away from intervention on a large scale. Here is our time line for implementation of the plan:
1. Kindergarten testing, Aug 31-Sept 3 The PAA test will be administered to all incoming kindergarteners 
2. 1-3 testing, Sept 3-14 QPS administered to all 1-3 grade students

Duties and Responsibilities of the Community Council
The community council is made up of both parents and school employees.  The council must have two more parent members than it does employees.  The council meets regularly and serves as a liaison between all parents and school employees.  Council members are happy to speak with you if you have questions or concerns.  Parents who are interested in serving on the council in the future are invited to contact the principal or a member of the council to find out more about it.  Elections to determine parent members are held each fall.  The council also contributes to the annual school improvement plan that is implemented by school faculty.    The community council also creates the annual land trust plan.  The land trust plan determines how our school land trust money will be spent. Members will also have input towards the school improvement plan. 

Robert's Rules of Order - Summary Version
For Fair and Orderly Meetings & Conventions
Provides common rules and procedures for deliberation and debate in order to place the whole membership on the same footing and speaking the same language. The conduct of ALL business is controlled by the general will of the whole membership - the right of the deliberate majority to decide. Complementary is the right of at least a strong minority to require the majority to be deliberate - to act according to its considered judgment AFTER a full and fair "working through" of the issues involved. Robert's Rules provides for constructive and democratic meetings, to help, not hinder, the business of the assembly. Under no circumstances should "undue strictness" be allowed to intimidate members or limit full participation. 


The fundamental right of deliberative assemblies require all questions to be thoroughly discussed before taking action!
The assembly rules - they have the final say on everything! Silence means consent! 


Guidelines
  • Obtain the floor (the right to speak) by being the first to stand when the person speaking has finished; state Mr./Madam Chairman. Raising your hand means nothing, and standing while another has the floor is out of order! Must be recognized by the Chair before speaking!
  • Debate can not begin until the Chair has stated the motion or resolution and asked "are you ready for the question?" If no one rises, the chair calls for the vote.
  • Before the motion is stated by the Chair (the question) members may suggest modification of the motion; the mover can modify as he pleases, or even withdraw the motion without consent of the seconder; if mover modifies, the seconder can withdraw the second.
  • The "immediately pending question" is the last question stated by the Chair! Motion/Resolution - Amendment - Motion to Postpone
  • The member moving the "immediately pending question" is entitled to preference to the floor!
  • No member can speak twice to the same issue until everyone else wishing to speak has spoken to it once!
  • All remarks must be directed to the Chair. Remarks must be courteous in language and deportment - avoid all personalities, never allude to others by name or to motives!
  •  The agenda and all committee reports are merely recommendations! When presented to the assembly and the question is stated, debate begins and changes occur!


The Rules
  • Point of Privilege: Pertains to noise, personal comfort, etc. - may interrupt only if necessary!
  • Parliamentary Inquiry: Inquire as to the correct motion - to accomplish a desired result, or raise a point of order
  •  Point of Information: Generally applies to information desired from the speaker: "I should like to ask the (speaker) a question."
  • Orders of the Day (Agenda): A call to adhere to the agenda (a deviation from the agenda requires Suspending the Rules)
  •  Point of Order: Infraction of the rules, or improper decorum in speaking. Must be raised immediately after the error is made
  •  Main Motion: Brings new business (the next item on the agenda) before the assembly
  •  Divide the Question: Divides a motion into two or more separate motions (must be able to stand on their own)
  • Consider by Paragraph: Adoption of paper is held until all paragraphs are debated and amended and entire paper is satisfactory; after all paragraphs are considered, the entire paper is then open to amendment, and paragraphs may be further amended. Any Preamble can not be considered until debate on the body of the paper has ceased.
  • Amend: Inserting or striking out words or paragraphs, or substituting whole paragraphs or resolutions
  • Withdraw/Modify Motion: Applies only after question is stated; mover can accept an amendment without obtaining the floor
  • Commit /Refer/Recommit to Committee: State the committee to receive the question or resolution; if no committee exists include size of committee desired and method of selecting the members (election or appointment).
  • Extend Debate: Applies only to the immediately pending question; extends until a certain time or for a certain period of time
  • Limit Debate: Closing debate at a certain time, or limiting to a certain period of time
  • Postpone to a Certain Time: State the time the motion or agenda item will be resumed
  • Object to Consideration: Objection must be stated before discussion or another motion is stated
  • Lay on the Table: Temporarily suspends further consideration/action on pending question; may be made after motion to close debate has carried or is pending
  • Take from the Table: Resumes consideration of item previously "laid on the table" - state the motion to take from the table
  • Reconsider: Can be made only by one on the prevailing side who has changed position or view
  • Postpone Indefinitely: Kills the question/resolution for this session - exception: the motion to reconsider can be made this session
  • Previous Question: Closes debate if successful - may be moved to "Close Debate" if preferred
  • Informal Consideration: Move that the assembly go into "Committee of the Whole" - informal debate as if in committee; this committee may limit number or length of speeches or close debate by other means by a 2/3 vote. All votes, however, are formal.
  •  Appeal Decision of the Chair: Appeal for the assembly to decide - must be made before other business is resumed; NOT debatable if relates to decorum, violation of rules or order of business
  • Suspend the Rules: Allows a violation of the assembly's own rules (except Constitution); the object of the suspension must be specified.

Land Trust Plan 2014-2015
Goal #1
Goal
To have 85% of all students in grades 2-5 be at grade level in math by the end of the school year.
Academic Areas
  • Mathematics
Measurements
This is the measurement identified in the plan to determine if the goal was reached.
  We will assess students at least weekly using common formative assessments.  Each grade level in our school has been organized into a Professional Learning Community.  One of the functions of the PLC is to create these assessments and administer the same assessment to every student at the grade level.  The results of the assessment will give us ongoing feedback about the performance of all students.  We will provide interventions/re-teaching to students who need additional instruction and assistance. Lake View teachers have created an essential learnings document for each grade level. This document identifies the most critical things for students to learn and master at each grade level.  Teachers will use these standards to guide instruction and to create formative assessments to check for student understanding. The math aides as well as the teachers will have greater focus on what to teach students by following and using these standards as their guide.      For formal assessment, we will use the SMI.  The SMI is a computer based, adaptive assessment system.  It will be administered to all students in grades 2-5.  It is administered at the beginning of the year, then again mid-year and finally at the end of the year. 
Please show the before and after measurements and how academic performance was improved.
Action Plan Steps
This is the Action Plan Steps identified in the plan to reach the goal.
We will be paying the wages of 3 math aides.  These math aides will be an integral part of providing effective instruction to our students and providing the interventions necessary for our students to learn.  The math aides will serve grades 3-5.  The aides work in one grade at a time.  Intervention groups are small groups and are conducted by the entire grade at once.  All teachers and all 3 aides work collaboratively to place students in the appropriate group and provide them with the re-teaching they need. The cost for these aides will be approximately $6,160.00 each.  We will pay the wages of an Americorps Employee.  Americorps has created a new position.  The job title is: Mentoring For Success.  This person will work 3.5 hours per day, 5 days per week.  They are assigned approximately 35 students who are considered to be at-risk of academic failure.  They provide academic support to these students, with the focus being one on one tutoring to these students in math.  They also provide after school tutoring and homework help for these students. This will cost us $3,500.    At the cost of approximately $1,000.00, we will provide professional development for the teachers.  The PD will be provided by our math coach..  The focus of the PD will be math tasking.  The math coach will be showing the teachers how to incorporate more real world, hands on activities into their math instruction and lessons.  This will extend the learning of our students and allow them to go deeper.  It will also make math more fun.  The other advantage to this is that it will help our teachers to become more skilled at providing extension activities during our normal interventions.  For example, 5th grade has been really good this year at doing a math formative assessment, seeing how all of the students do, and then dividing the students into groups.  One group is the students who showed mastery of the skill or concept.  Another group is those who really struggled, and so on.  This professional development would help teachers to be better at providing meaningful extension/enrichment activities to those advanced groups.  
Please explain how the action plan was implemented to reach this goal.

Goal #2
Goal
Our goal is to reach the DIBELS proficiency goal that will be set for us by the district.  Unfortunately, I do not have that goal or expectation at this time.  I can only assume that it will be similar to the goal we had this year.
Academic Areas
  • Reading
Measurements
This is the measurement identified in the plan to determine if the goal was reached.
DIBELS scores and progress monitoring.  Our focus will be to have all students making progress throughout the year as measured by their regular DIBELS progress monitoring conducted by staff members here at the school, as well as their formal DIBELS testing which is conducted three times per year by the district assessment team. Students that are categorized as strategic or intensive will receive intervention services.  Through progress monitoring, we will determine if the intervention is effective.  If not, a new intervention will be implemented.
Please show the before and after measurements and how academic performance was improved.
Action Plan Steps
This is the Action Plan Steps identified in the plan to reach the goal.
We will pay the wages of one reading aide.  The reading aide will work with small groups of students who are placed together according to reading level.  The aide will be trained and supervised by our literacy coach.  Students in the groups will read books that have been carefully chosen according to lexile level and will be appropriate for the academic level of the student.  The aide will provide focused instruction based on the needs of the students and their level of readiness. This aide will cost a total of approximately $5,986.00.  We will also pay the wages of an instructional aide to work with 4th and 5th grade students who are below grade level in reading.  This aide will focus on basic skills such as phonics and fluency.  She will be trained and supervised by the literacy coach.  This aide will have roughly the same schedule as the reading aide listed and should be roughly the same expense.  We anticipate paying this instructional aide will cost us roughly $5,986.00.  Another instructional aide will be hired to work with first grade students.  This aide will pull students out from each of the 4 first grade classes and work on reading/language arts skills per the direction of the first grade team leader and teachers.  The expense for this aide will also be $5,986.00. 

In January of 2015, the community council chose to amend our plan.  To follow is an explanation of the amendment:


Lake View Elementary Land Trust Plan Amendment January 2015 Lake View Elementary is requesting an amendment to its 2014-2015 Land Trust plan. The Lake View community council voted on this amendment on 1/8/15 and the vote was unanimous. The vote would affect the areas highlighted in yellow on the attached land trust plan. We would like to change the duties of a few of the aides listed in the plan. We would also like to make adjustments to some of their hours. We would also request a change to how carry-over and extra allotment money will be used. Currently, the plan states that carry-over and allotment money that is greater than anticipated would go towards the purchase of technology items to support our goals. We would like to change that to read: Additional funds and carry-over funds will be used to support the Lake View Reading plan for the 2014-2015 school year. Approximately $6,282 will be used to extend the hours of 8 existing part-time employees. The remaining $7,978 would be used to finance professional development, the purchase of instructional materials or the hiring of additional staff in order to implement our new reading plan. The two aide positions that are highlighted in yellow will be changed to the following: These two instructional aides will take small groups in grades K-3. They will provide guided reading and targeted instruction per the attached reading plan. The existing land trust plan for 2014-2015 is attached at the end of this document. The Lake View reading plan follows immediately. This reading plan has been developed by: teachers, literacy coaches, the special education teacher and reading aides at Lake View. Lake View Reading Proposal It is proposed that we create a new reading focus at Lake View Elementary. The reading plan would incorporate guided reading into a small group targeted instruction model for grades K-3. This plan would call for a new guided reading schedule. Afternoon guided reading groups for grades 1-3 will be cancelled. Grades 1-3 will have 45 minute small group targeted instruction sessions in the morning. The proposed schedule is as follows: K-AM 8:15-8:35 3 teachers and 13 aides available for 16 total groups to serve 60 students 2 8:40-9:25 4 teachers and 12 aides available for 16 groups to serve 90 students 1 9:30-10:15 4 teachers and 14 aides available for 18 groups to serve 108 students 3 10:20-11:05 4 teachers and 12 aides available for 16 groups to serve 90 students K-PM group 1 1:00-1:20 group 2 1:25-1:45 3 teachers, 1 sped teacher and 5 aides available (ELL, Melissa, Aimee, Sharon and Nini.) 9 groups total to serve 40 students in each session. (Full day class to part. in both sessions.) On Wednesdays, the full day class will not participate in afternoon sessions. The PM classes will participate in two sessions. They will be at 11:45-12:05 and 12:10-12:30. The ELL aides and full day kinder aides are not available on Wednesdays, but the two teachers, sped, Nini, Aimee and Sharon are available for a total of 6 groups. (First grade and third grade will start lunch 5 minutes later than at present) The following personnel will change their schedules/duties to accommodate the new model: Carolina Rex Maintain current schedule. Coordinate with Christie to provide 1 group for each grade level in the morning. Also provide instruction during each PM kindergarten group in the afternoon every day except Wednesday. Christie Legua Maintain current schedule. Coordinate with Carolina to provide 1 group for each grade level in the morning. Also provide instruction during each PM kindergarten group in the afternoon every day except Wednesday. Nini Anderson No change in schedule. Nini will take kindergarten groups from 1:00-1:45. She will be available for 4-5 grade reading intervention for the remainder of her time. Karen Weight Take a group for one grade in the morning. (Preferably first grade if possible) Marilee Burgon Maintain schedule and work three additional hours on Wednesday Lori Anderson Maintain schedule and work three additional hours on Wednesday Vicki Sleeman Shift her current schedule to the morning and also add three hours to Wednesday. Duties to remain the same. Staci Bishop Shift to reading groups from math groups and maintain current schedule with the addition of 30 minutes per day. Kristi Edgington Shift to reading groups from math groups and maintain current schedule with the addition of 30 minutes per day Cindy Romney Shift to K-3 reading groups from current first grade aide position and add 3 hours to Wednesday from 8:05-11:05 Brenda Everton Shift to K-3 reading groups from 4-5 grade reading aide. Add three hours to her schedule on Friday. Kelly Knudsen Shift to K-3 reading groups from first grade aide and add three hours to her schedule on Wednesday Kim Howard Provide K-3 reading groups in the morning each day that include special ed. Students. Schedule would change so that bulk of her hours are in the morning, 8:05-11:05, M-F. Additional hours may be placed as needed. Aimee Wells No change in duties. Switch schedule to M-F, 8:05-11:05 and 11:40-1:40. Aimee will take kindergarten groups from 1:00-1:45. She will be available for 4-5 grade intervention. Sharon Potter No change in duties. Switch schedule to M-F, 8:05-11:05 and 11:40-1:40. Sharon will take kindergarten groups from 1:00-1:45. She will then be available for 4-5 grade intervention. Jan Holmgren Take one group each day during the first grade time slot. No change in hours. Morning check out for some classes may need to be re-scheduled. Melissa Brown No change in schedule. Melissa will support kindergarten by taking a kindergarten group in both the morning and afternoon time slot. Aides will keep the same students for the duration of their group time. This will cut down on wasted time for transitions. 20 minutes will be spent on guided reading, 25 minutes will be used for targeted skill instruction at the group?s level. Time line for implementation: January 26-27 DIBELS testing for all grades January 28 DIBELS data examination. All students who are below benchmark will scheduled for a follow-up assessment to determine their specific needs/deficit. January 29-February 6 Assessment of students below benchmark. Training for aides and teachers. Students assigned to groups. February 9 New groups begin Resources Available Lake View has Land Trust money available to cover the expense of extending the schedule for several aides. We currently have $14,260 available in land trust money. To increase the hours of 8 of our existing aides so that each of them can work 15 hours per week throughout the duration of this plan will cost us $6,282. This leaves us with $7,978.00. Using this money, we have the flexibility of hiring additional aides, purchasing needed materials and /or providing additional training as needed.
