Review Final Trust Lands Report This report is similar to the one approved last year but with a few changes. Goal #1 Nicole Robinson was hired as a paraprofessional 12hrs/week to give support to our below level learners in second through fifth grade. Cindy Rodet and Joy Carroll are running the take-home library Larry Gardner is working 3 hrs a week to help a few of our most at-risk students be successful in and out of the classroom when needed. Hire 2-3 paraprofessionals to provide interventions for some of our high ability learners. Nadine Hancey will discuss this with Andrea Reid. They would like it to be more project based in the future. Not sure what that will look like, probably 9-10 hours per week. We need to hire 1-2 more. Stephanie Gibson was hired as a paraprofessional to give support for at-risk math students Joy Carroll is working with our OEK class and with the take home library. Goal #2 Focus on technology. Our computers are out of date and 10+ years old. After the Fall report is submitted, once approved, then the new technology will be ordered. The District will need to order these through their vendors. We will order chrome books and possibly ipads for teachers. Grades 3-5 are using chrome books. Tina Ward mentioned that teachers need ipads for Dibels, but are willing to take either ipads or chromebooks.
