  • SCC State & District Information [20 minutes]
    • Information from the district’s PTA president and SCC chair luncheon (Chris) 
      • Chris didn’t feel that there were action items for the SCC. The Superintendent did talk about decreasing attendance and pushed compulsory education. This led to a discussion about Park Lane’s decreasing attendance; why kids aren’t attending and what can be done. In summary, the teachers are frustrated because their ability to enforce required attendance is limited.
    • Review district SCC Training Options
      • Those that haven’t attended were encouraged to do so
  • Park Lane Data & Information [20 minutes]
    • Review of current school TSSP & Land Trust plan
    • Review of Available Data
      • 2023 End of Year including RISE data
        • In summary, every grade, with the exception of a couple, met their ELA and Math goals and we are DOMINATING in the district! When compared to other elementary schools with similar demographics throughout the state, we have the best scores by 10-15 points in every category. The 4th graders beat the state RISE score by almost 40 points and the 5th graders by 41 points.
        • It was noted that we have a lot of above average kids at the beginning of the year and they are still above average at the end of the year. The question, what are we doing to challenge those kids, was asked. The answer is extensions. Park Lane employs ELA and Math extension teachers to push those kids who need a challenge. Kids who are below average and need intervention work in small
        • We all acknowledge that Park Lane has incredible, tenured teachers and an amazing culture! Because KIDS!
