What is School Community Council?

Many have asked, what is the School Community Council, and what do they do? Crescent's School Community Council is a board of 6 elected parents, 1 employee elected by the employees at the school, and the principal. The purpose of school community councils are: to build consistent and effective communication among parents, employees and administrators; to allow parents an opportunity to be actively involved, with the school, and in their children's education; and to make good schools better. They are also responsible for decisions involving Trust LAND money for our school. This council generally meets monthly to discuss and implement issues and programs for our school.

Last year the School Trust LAND money was used to pay for para-professionals that provided supports in reading.  This year, 2018-2019, we have been allocated $52,796.00 in School Trust LAND funds and we have again hired para-professionals to provide additional supports for students in reading and math.

2017-2018 Goals and End-of-Year Report

Reading –

  • 80% of students in Kindergarten will reach grade-level benchmark at the end of the school year as measured by Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skill (DIBELS) Phoneme Segmentation Fluency (PSF) assessment.
  • 80% of students in 1st, 2nd, & 3rd grade, will reach grade-level benchmark at the end of the school year as measured by Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skill (DIBELS) Oral Reading Fluency (DORF) assessment.
  • 70% of 4th and 5th grade students will be at least proficient at the end of the school year as measured by the Reading Inventory (RI).

Outcome: 

  • Kindergarten students started the year 76% and improved 3% for a total of 79% on the DIBELS PSF (Phoneme Segmentation Fluency). DIBELS was used to determine baseline winter data and final assessment data was collected in the spring. Winter DIBELS PSF data was used to measure student progress toward the goal and adjust instruction accordingly.
  • 73% of our first, second and third grade students met the winter benchmark of our students met the winter benchmark on DORF. DIBELS Oral Reading Fluency was used to determine baseline winter data and final assessment data. At the end of the year, 69% of our first, second, and third grade students met the benchmark for DORF.
  • 58% of our students in the fourth grade and our fifth-grade students were either proficient or advanced on the December SRI Test. SRI will be used to determine baseline fall data and final assessment data (spring) for 4th and 5th grades.  At the end of the year, 66% of 4th and 5th grade students met benchmark on the SRI.

HOW THE MONEY WAS USED:

Of the $56,388 of land trust money that was given to Crescent Elementary $56,378 was spent.

 

Students benefitted from skill-based instruction in the classroom that was augmented by MTSS paraprofessionals. The paraprofessionals were supported by School Trust LAND Funds and worked with students to offer Tier II, small group supports. Paraprofessionals also were provided training and coaching by the school achievement coach. Students were assessed every two weeks to determine progress using grade-appropriate sub tests. Teachers monitored students as well, to target continued growth. DIBELS benchmark assessments were given in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. Reading Inventory (RI) was given to 4th and 5th graders in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. Teachers participated in professional development, coaching, and observations specifically focusing on the following: - Scaffolding and grouping - Positive specific feedback - Precision directions with adequate wait time

Math –

  • 75% of students will be at Benchmark at the end of the school year as measured by these DIBELS measures:
  • Kindergarten = BQD (Beginning Quantity Discrimination)
  • 1st grade = DIBELS Computation Assessment
  • 2nd – 5th grades = DIBELS Computation and Concepts & Applications Assessments

School Climate –

  • By May of 2018, 100% of the school staff will provide at least a 3:1 positive to corrective feedback ratio in a safe and inviting climate.
