Andrea Nelson volunteered

Discussion Items

SCC Training Reminder

Please complete Training and report back to Alicia

Data – Achievement Coach

We are not able to compare some of the at home learning assessment data due to possible uncontrolled environments. Generally, data shows positive trend in some of the younger grades. The effects of online learning in the spring is uncertain as we await 2020 online results.

Continued Learning Friday

Parents like paper packets. Amount of work being assigned seems to be good. SCC endorses maintaining the packets.

New building updates

  1. Exterior plan for student safety
  2. Playground area
  3. Move to Crescent

Leslie is working with district to adapt sinks and access to make them appropriate for elementary students.

Blending Online and In-Person Activities || One School

This has proven to be difficult as teachers need to maintain in-person and provide some online, so extra time available is limited. SCC and PTA will look for simple things that create unity.

School Safety Plan

Update on Sidewalk on South side of 8425 S. Grant money has been allocated and cannot be changed to the North side of the street. Further grants can be obtained by Salt Lake County.

Digital Citizenship

There is a new digital citizenship facilitator. We will revisit after she is trained.

Budget Review

Current expenditures reviewed. No comments
