Rules of Order and Procedure
This template was developed at the request of schools and districts to meet a new requirement for school community councils to adopt Rules of Order and Procedure (53A-1a-108.1). The template may be reviewed and amended by councils to meet their needs or councils may develop their own.

To promote ethical behavior and civil discourse each council member shall:
• Attend council meetings on time and prepared
• Make decisions with the needs of students as the main objective
• Listen to and value diverse opinions
• Be sure the opinions of those you represent are included in discussions
• Expect accountability and be prepared to be accountable
• Act with integrity

Rules of Procedure:
All meetings are open to the public and the public is welcome to attend.
The agenda of each upcoming meeting with draft minutes of the prior meeting will be made available to all council members at least one week in advance, will be posted on the school website and made available in the main office. The agenda will include the date, time and location of the meeting.
Minutes will be kept of all meetings, prepared in draft format for approval at the next scheduled meeting.
The council will prepare a timeline for the school year that includes due dates for all required reporting and other activities/tasks that the council agrees to assume or participate in. The timeline will assist in preparation of agendas to be sure the council accomplishes their work in a timely manner.
The chair conducts the meetings, makes assignments and requests reports on assignments. In the absence of the chair the vice-chair shall conduct meetings.
Meetings shall be conducted and action taken according to very simplified rules of parliamentary procedure as required in 53A-1a-108.1(10). Items on the agenda take priority over other discussions coming before the council. Council action will be taken by motions and voting with votes and motions recorded in the minutes.
A motion (or an action to be taken by the council) is stated as a motion. Someone else on the council “seconds” the motion indicating that at least one other person on the council feels the motion is worthy of discussion. Then the council members may provide input and discussion as called upon by the chair. When discussion seemsgraph complete the chair may call for a vote on the motion. Or when a member of the council “calls the previous question” (a motion to end discussion of the first motion), a second is required and then, without discussion the chair calls for a vote that must pass by 2/3. If the vote on the previous question fails the council goes back to discussing the first motion. If the motion to call the previous question passes, the chair directly calls for a vote on the first motion. A vote to call the previous question is usually used to move business along.
Attached is a chart that could be used if the council feels they would like to use additional motions of Parliamentary Procedure in their meetings.
Simple Motions of Parliamentary Procedure

MOTION DOES IT REQUIRE A 2ND? IS IT DEBATABLE? CAN IT BE AMENDED? IS A VOTE REQUIRED

 

• A tie vote is a lost vote.
• A main motion may be amended.
• Nominations can be closed by saying, “I move to close nominations.”
• Most motions are main motions.
• A point of order is offered when there is some question if procedure had been followed correctly.
• To stop debate or discussion on a motion and force the vote a member would say, “I move the previous
question.” This requires a second and a 2/3 vote.
• Hasty action may be corrected by use of the motion to reconsider. This motion may be made only
by one who voted on the prevailing side.
• A person who made the motion may withdraw the same motion.

Come be a part of our Community Council! It is a great way to be directly involved with our school. As a council member you have the opportunity to help decide how Trust Land money is spent. You also have the opportunity to give feedback on areas we are doing well and areas that we can improve. If you want to be involved or would like more information, contact the main office.

2013-2104 Final Trustlands Report

 
Goal 1
Our goal is to increase our proficiency by two percent in Language Arts, Math and Science.  Language Arts would Increase from 82% to 84%, Math from 67% to 69%, and Science from 61% to 63%.
Roy Junior High was able to use the money to help fund an intervention coordinator to help our struggling students in the areas of Numeracy and Literacy.  In doing so she was able to help coordinate our school wide academic intervention program.  We were also able to use the money to keep our class sizes down in Math, and Language Arts.  This enabled us to get class size down so teachers could give more individualized instruction to our students.  Roy Junior was also able to use the money to provide math labs to help those students that need extra math help.  We also had tutoring before school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  The teachers were further trained on the common core and we will continue this training.  Lastly we were able to provide, maintain and expand technologies in our building.  We were able to purchase items such as smart boards, projectors, and math software.
 
Measurements
We have changed to the SAGE testing program from CORE testing.  The test is different in many ways.  The test is an adaptive test for one.  The test now is also more rigorous the previous CORE test we have used.  Finally with it being new we have no base line to gage it to.  We are really comparing two different tests.  Therefore to say we have reached our goal or not would not be a reasonable comparison. We now have a baseline and will be able to measure our student’s performance in the future.
Amounts
 
We spent 16,612 on buyouts for class reduction, math tutoring and math labs.
We Spent 342 in general supplies.
We spent 3,250 for Apex Credit recovery program and math software.
We spent 19,591 on smart boards, projectors and other instructional equipment.
Item B
Please describe the reason for a carry-over of more than 10% of the distribution.
One reason is that we received extra money of about 14%.  The other reason is we were able to get a grant to help offset buyouts for our teachers.  This made it so we did not have to spend as much money on salaries.  As in the past many of our projectors and other technologies are beginning to wear out and we are looking to make sure we have the funds to continue to be able to maintain them in all of our classrooms.  The projectors have held on longer than anticipated.   They are an essential tool that our teachers use on a regular basis.
