    Final Report Summary 2022-2023

    During the 2022-2023 school year we received approximately $90,880 from School Trust Lands. Our Community Council met to set the following funding priorities to support three main goals. The first goal; 85% of students will show typical and above average progress in literacy with 50 % MGP in literacy, math, and science was addressed by using $80,442.80 to hire a .5 teacher and five part time Reading Para Professionals to support our targeted reading and writing goals in our school’s WIN Intervention program. We also used $11,020.28 to purchase Chromebooks and a computer program, ST Math, to assist instruction and enhance student learning. The second goal; 85% of students will increase their student proficiency in Language Arts, Math, and Science by incorporating music across the core curriculum was met by hiring a qualified part-time music instructor at a cost of $9.055.75.  If you have any questions about our Community Council and how funds are appropriated and used for Little Valley Elementary, please contact any of the members on the Community Council. As always, any parent is invited, and encouraged, to be a part of the Community Council meetings.

    Digital Citizenship:


      Our School Community Council is primarily responsible for the creation of our School LAND Trust Plan. This plan is created annually by analyzing our school testing data to determine the greatest academic need. The money our school receives from the School LAND Trust fund is allocated according to our plan. Over the years our school has purchased technology to support student learning, books for our leveled library, math manipulatives, science materials, and we’ve been able to hire additional personnel to support targeted learning in small groups. Our school is grateful for the School LAND Trust program and the opportunity we have as a school to allocate the funds to support our targeted and specific needs. The Council assists with school improvement, and make decisions on how to best spend the Trust LANDS funding. More information regarding the work of the Council and the current plan can be found by visiting the School LAND Trust Website: School Land Trust
