A Message From Principal Marberger
Our School Community Council is asked to provide a mid-year summary of the council’s actions and activities to date. Our school council has met monthly and considered many important items for the benefit of our school. As a council, our responsibilities are: to review school assessment data, develop the School Student Assessment Plan (SSAP) including the Reading Achievement Plan, develop the School LAND Trust Plan, develop a Child Access Routing Plan, advice the school administration on local school issues and provide an opportunity for issues of concern in the community to be presented to the school administration. We usually meet the third Friday of each month at 10 AM in Room 7. The future meeting dates, agendas and meeting minute are posted on the school web page.
During our meetings this year, a few of our agenda items included a review of the School Tustland plan, school communication tools and a discussion about a future district calendars. Our council also looked at safe walking routes and improving safety for our students. Finally, as a council we are reviewing our school assessment data and developing our SSAP plan for next year. At the mid-year, our students are making progress in the areas of language arts and numeracy which are the areas that are identified by the SSAP. As a school, we have been very focused on improving our math and literacy instruction. Our school goal is that all students are learning at higher levels and teachers are providing additional instruction and interventions for students who are not learning the curriculum concepts. Parents are a part of this learning process as well and can help students with homework and encouraging student reading each night.
School Early Open Enrollment Window
Early open enrollment period for the 2016/2017 began on Monday, December 1st, 2015 and ends on February 16, 2016. Open enrollment applications are available at all schools, and are processed in the order received. Students residing within Granite School District boundaries are given priority. Enrollment depends on space available in the requested grade, class, or program. Open enrollment requests do not require a release from the student’s home school or district.
If you student is accepted for open enrollment, annual reapplication is not required – as long as the student remains at the same school, and space is available. When a student transitions from elementary school to junior high, or from junior high to high school, there is no automatic feeder system that open enrollment; therefore reapplication is necessary to attend a school outside of the student’s home boundary school.
