Betsy will bring results of Pathways of Progress for each grade for the council to review. 3rd grade was at 74% improvement (typical of most grades – using last year’s data). 47.8% is the minimum expected improvement.
Would like to see shift from MobyMax to Student Learning Outcome (SLO) for math testing. Each grade has been asked to draft a goal, which we will review in council meeting. Looking to allow flexibility for teachers to utilize SLO tests to measure performance and improvement and tie goals to SLO, rather than MobyMax. Students are getting tied up on concepts that may not be directly associated with their current core curriculum.
- Report on current Land Trust spending
- Discuss the rough draft plan for the 2017-18 school year
At least 47.83% of K-6 grade students will make at least typical or greater than typical growth within the school year.

First grade: 80% of all regular education students will learn to add and subtract numbers up to 20 with 80% accuracy by end of school year.
