School Community Council

The School Community Council a group of parents, guardians, teachers, and school staff who are elected to represent the greater school community.  Some of the responsibilities of the SCC are to review, discuss and approve of academic improvement plans, staff development plans, allocation of LAND Trust money and to provide a forum for community discussions of school-related concerns.

Why Community Council

If you have a concern, opinion or suggestion relating to:

  • Curriculum
  • Student activities
  • Transportation
  • Building maintenance
  • Proposed boundary changes
  • Student safety
  • Legislative issues
  • Any other issues

We can help!  This is the place to express your feelings and to work for positive changes in our school.  Please let your voice be heard.  (While decisions regarding Jordan School District policies, budgets, laws and personnel issues are not things we can change, we can pass on concerns about these to the School District.)

SCC Notes

This year we have been awarded $56,243 in Land Trust Money. This money will be used to fund intervention aides in both math and reading.

Final Report 2017-2018 - West Jordan EL

Goal

Academic Areas

Our goal was to increase proficiency by 5 % in the areas of Language Arts and Mathematics. Measurements will include DIBELS, SAGE and benchmarks for ELA and Math Benchmark Pre and Post test data as well as SAGE for Mathematics.

Measurements

This is the measurement identified in the plan to determine if the goal was reached.

DIBELS Fountas and Pinnell LA and Math Benchmarks

Please show the before and after measurements and how academic performance was improved.

DIBELS     Beginning of the year Proficiency K-3: 58 % proficient
End of Year : 55%
-3 percent growth

SAGE       ELA     2016-17       27 %
2017-18       30%       3 % Growth

 

MATH  2016-17       32 %
2017-18       35 %             3 % Growth

 

Benchmarks:
READING: From Pre to Post Test, our school went from an overall score of 40% proficient to 68% proficient in ELA with an overall growth score of 28%.

WRITING: From Pre to Post Test, our school went from an overall score of 31% proficient to 69% proficient in Writing with an overall growth score of 40%.

MATH: From Pre to Post Test, our school went from an overall score of 36% proficient to 75% proficient in Math with an overall growth score of 39%.

Our plan was amended to hiring assistants to work with students to build skills in reading and math. In reading, assistants pushed into each classroom for 1/ 2 hr a day and worked with assigned students on comprehension skills, fluency practice, DIBELS skills, phonics, etc, based on student need. In math, some grades identified areas of low performance and assigned students to work with assistants to fill holes, and other grades had the aides work with high performing students while the teachers worked with struggling students. Assistants worked in each classroom for 1/2 hour a day. We also paid teachers to attend professional development in the areas of reading and writing, and paid them for time to plan in the the key curriculum areas as a team. 5th grade had an aide that helped reduce class size by running small groups in both reading and math, working with individual struggling students and helping students stay on task during whole class activities.
