  • Welcome Members
  • Council Business
    • Motion by Meredith Aardema was made to approve September 16 Community Council Minutes. Seconded by Kristen Hall. Unanimously approved.
    • A meeting was held on Tuesday, October 20 with Pleasant View City (Leonard Call - Mayor, Bill Cobabe - City Administrator, Ryan Hadley - Chief of Police, Tyson Jackson - Public Works) to discuss concerns with students crossing 3200 South after exiting the walking path from the school. There is no sidewalk for students to use to cross to the south side of 3200. The city will submit a cost proposal to put in a sidewalk and signs. Mrs. Williams will share the proposal with the school district to see if they can help with the expense.
    • All members were satisfied with the 2020-2021 meeting schedule.
    • 2020-2021 Plan was reviewed.
      • Ms. Blamires, instructional coach, shared reading data for grades K-6. The data came from DIBELS/Acadience testing done at the beginning and middle of the 2019-2020 school year and the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year. Most students maintained their middle of year reading level through the soft closure and summer months though the growth was less due to the closure. Most grade level scores from the beginning of this school year were lower than scores from the beginning of last school year.
      • The updated carryover amount was $7595.07. This was more than projected amount due to some purchases not clearing the budget before June 30. It was also noted that the amount paid to aides was approximately $2000. 00 less. Council Members will discuss what the carryover should be spent on.
  • Next Meeting
    • November 19, 2020 at 4:15 pm at Orchard Springs Elementary
  • Adjournment
    • Windy Bass motioned to adjourn the meeting.
    • Kristen Hall seconded the motion.
    • Meeting was adjourned at 5:30 pm.
