Community Council Minutes

January 19, 2022

Attendees- Deanne Chaston, Amy Hall, Anndee Hoskins, Rich Murray, Susan Scheiner, Suzanne Striland, Joshua Thayne

Welcome- Rich Murray

Reading Initiative-  1st semester we identified with the comm literacy test done in the English classes that the reading levels at Roy Junior are lower than we had hoped.. 7th grade- 18 students very low, 43 low- 8th grade- 38 very low, 73 low- 9th grade- 13 very low, 23 low.  We have found across the board that students that struggle with reading typically struggle with all academic areas and have more behavior issues.  Teachers, counselors and administrators looked at the data and developed a tiered system for behavior management.  The system starts with classroom rules and explicitly telling students expectations. We have allocated fiscal and personnel resources to this endeavor.  We have seen behaviors this year that we have never seen before.  For several years, our faculty focused on improving failing grades.  One factor that stood in our way…student absences (the state of Utah has recently relaxed truancy consequences).  Teachers called home, made home visits, and did everything they could to get students to come to school, but had little success.  We shifted our paradigm- administrators and counselors will work with parents and students to get excessively students back to school. Teachers will help B students become A students and C students become B students.

Tier II Program- Our Tier II program was put on hold as the person that was overseeing it got a new assignment.  We have recently hired a new employee (Daiseliz Young Torres) to over see this program.  We look forward to a strongly run program that will empower our students to be successful as she works directly with our counselor Kelli Figgins.  The Tier II program helps our students get back on track with their behavior and academics. 1st semester teachers and staff focused on interventions. 2nd semester they will be focusing on incentives and pointing out the good. 

SEGUE-  The SEGUE program is new to Roy Junior this year.  “Social-Emotional Growth Using Education”.  This is a special education program that provides support to students with significant emotional and behavioral disorders, both in a self contained classroom setting an with push-out support to other classrooms.  They track student behaviors across a variety of necessary skills for success, in both educational and transition settings, teach social skills and healthy methods of coping with stress, frustration and other aversive circumstances.  Felicia Ellis, one of our resource teachers is over this program.  She is highly qualified and experienced in this area.  She brings confidence, expertise and skill to help these students be successful.

Boundaries for new schools-  The district will be looking for community members to be on the boundary community as they start to meet the first part of next year.

Trustlands-  We are putting together the 2022-23 trustlands plan and are looking for suggestions/ideas from our community council members.  Roy Jr would like to continue with programs that are now in place that are making a difference in the lives of our students.  We are also looking forward to continuing with teacher buy outs, technology, library resources, trainings, etc.  The new plan is due in February (no set date yet).  In our next community council meeting, we will also be discussing ideas for the TSSA and ESSR funds.

Accreditation-  Roy Junior will be going through the accreditation process Feb. 7-9.  This is the first time it will be done virtually. We want to give a big shout out to Amy Hall and the accreditation team for everything they have done to see that Roy Jr will have a great review.  The accreditation committee may ask for community council input during this time.  Mr. Murray asked of any of the council members would be willing to be interviewed?

Next Community Council meeting is February 16, 2022

Food Bank- Roy Junior High has started a food bank!! It's located in the old gym. We have been getting supplies from the Catholic Community Center and the Ogden-Weber Chamber of Commerce. The food bank is available to any and everyone. Tues-Thurs. mornings. However if there is a parent that needs supplies any other time... we do what we can to accommodate them. We have had quite a few families in our area that has taken advantage of this program. We also have food packs that are available for students to take home after school.

COVID cont. 

Adjustment to School 2% Threshold Counts: *Based on student enrollment counts, only! (Last year - based on "school population": students, teachers, staff) 

*For schools w/ less than 1500 students, the threshold mark is 30 positive cases. (Characterizes all of our secondary schools except for Roy HS, Fremont HS & Weber HS) Roy HS = 36 positive cases Fremont HS = 42 positive cases Weber H$ = 42 positive cases 

*We'll also consider a temporary school closure in the event that we can't safely instruct and supervise kids because a high % of teachers/staff are isolated/quarantined. 

*1% Threshold is Crossed: Consult with Gina/Clyde. Principal sends the "Test to Stay - School Community Letter" *The letter explains the Test to Stay requirement (as per SB 107) & responsive measures we'd like to remind about and implement. *The letter asks parents/guardians to provide prior permission to test their students so we can prepare for the Test to Stay event. 

1) All students wear a mask at school for the next 10 days to reduce the spread of the virus. 2) Please stay home if you are feeling any symptoms such as, fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, headache, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea. 3) All faculty, staff and students should focus on personal hygiene protection such as handwashing, keeping unwashed hands away from the face, and covering the mouth when sneezing or coughing. 4) Increased sanitation at home and school (our custodians will increase focus in this area). 5) Avoid sharing personal items with those outside your own household. 6) Avoid crowds like in restaurants, fitness centers, movie theaters, etc. which may put you at higher risk of contracting COVID-19. *2% Threshold is Met: Consult with Gina/Clyde.
