Jodi talking about it. Same as last time Anything we should add?

Has salted and clearing of snow.

Construction should be finished by next year.

Concern about only one lane coming in to the school (2 going out). Problems dropping off and picking up. Problems keeping cars moving.

Suggestion for a sidewalk on Bengal.


  1. 3.Academic Aides at BMS

Have a hard time finding people to take the position and stay.

Have not been able to implement it completely. $ and hours are not competitive.

Ask about Colleges for students who need hours for a class requirements.

Contact Westminster and UofU. I suggest SLCC also.

Would it be possible to hire a full time teacher? Not really. Probably a part time.

  1. Parent Survey-Review of results

How to get more responding?

Some kind of incentive.

We are about 3rd in Middle schools. All really close.

Lowest is how much student is learning.

Bullying and kids not being challenged. Most common problems mentioned.

Emotional well being. Most parents don’t understand the question. But the question needs to be better or get us more information. We can’t fix anything if we don’t know the problem.

Should we resend this and see if we can get more information.

5. Review Current Testing Results
