Meadow Brook Elementary has a School Community Council (SCC) that meets monthly to discuss school related issues and determine how to best spend Trustland Funds. The council is made up of school employees (elected), parents (elected), and the principal. If you have questions, issues, or concerns you would like discussed, please contact a member of our SCC or call Heather Balli at the school (801-489-2897).School Improvement Plans: 2020-2021 Rules of Order Meeting Schedule
We are always looking for parents to join our community council to advise and provide insight for our school. We have 5 parent members and 3 staff members on our council each year (members serve two-year terms) and will have an election if necessary. If you desire to attend one of our community council meetings, you are welcome to attend regardless of whether you are a member.
2019-2020 Trustlands Annual Allocation
Each year, the state gives Trustland monies to schools based on enrollment —this funding is separate from normal school funding. Trustland funding is to be spent on the school's greatest academic need. As a School Community Council last year, the council felt Meadow Brook’s greatest academic needs were in reading and math.
During the 2019-2020 school year, 80% of Trustland funds ($57,074) were used to hire five reading aides and three math technicians to enrich and reteach students in reading and math. The rest of the funds were used to build Meadow Brook’s take-home and leveled libraries, purchase technology and math professional development books, hire substitutes for collaboration days—days in which teacher teams collaboratively meet to enhance instruction. If you would like an in-depth look at how these funds were spent, please see the office. Through the efforts of our teachers and reading aides, 86% of MB students were reading on grade level or made at least one year of growth (compared to 84% from the previous year).
