Parents can see all the results
MLMS had an increase in proficiency in all three areas.
Our ELL students are an area that has been identified as a need (about 13/14% of our students are ELL). Elementary schools in Logan determined that to be a need last year.
Attendance has improved over the last three years.
Follow Up on Same Group Request
4. Semester Schedule - Daryl Guymon, Principal
Last Board meeting Daryl gave them two plans that are being considered.
6 period A/B Schedule (55 minute classes)
Con: elective classes will be huge for the teacher
7 periods (45 minute classes) same as now but students change classes mid-year vs trimester.
Some electives changing quarterly
Con: will be a challenge scheduling electives
May create some high classes/some low classes and less diverse classes
What is the biggest reason we are going to semesters?
Superintendent and school board told us we are moving to semesters.
Teachers are mixed which one they prefer

How are we doing in reaching current goal of 85%?
7. Schools to Watch - Daryl Guymon, Principal
Throughout the states (about 20 states) schools can get together and work together to make sure we promote excellence in learning. This year MLMS is up for Schools to Watch re-designation. Teachers and principals from other schools will visit MLMS and give feedback as to whether or not we will be re-designated. Re-designate every 3 years. This is our 5th re-designation
8. Update – Standards Based Grading - Daryl Guymon, Principal
9. Parent Teacher Conferences - Daryl Guymon, Principal
Essential learning is the ultimate place we are aiming for conferences. More personal and specific thing the child is working on and needs to work on.
38.2% attendance for conference which is higher than it has been in the past.
10. Community Outreach Programs - Michelle Selui, Co-Chair
Too much going on to add this year. Will discuss ideas next year
Start with Hello Week
White Ribbon Week
Could use student council and PTSA kids during lunch. Will table this until next year.
Colin Kartchner – Social Media
Daryl will do a phone message home. One this week and perhaps one closer. A separate phone message from the normal Sunday 6pm one would be great.
