Site Council is a volunteer group at Ainsworth Elementary that supports the principal with the overall academic direction of the school, focusing on school improvement initiatives. Each year, a small group of parents and staff representatives are selected to serve on Site Council for a two-year cycle.
Our work aligns to the Ainsworth Comprehensive Achievement Plan (CAP). The staff and community prioritized the following 3 indicators from Oregon's School Level Indicators. Site Council will set goals and measure our growth in these areas:
DSC1.6 School staff coordinates and integrates services and programs with the aim of optimizing the entire educational program to improve student learning.
By June 1st of 2018, 100% of staff will implement at least one Tier 1 and Tier 2 academic program and one Tier 1 and Tier 2 social emotional curriculum as documented on PLC templates and the school-wide TFI.
EE2.2 Educator Effectiveness 2.2 - All teachers use instructional strategies and initiatives that are grounded in evidence-based practices, strengthen the core academic program, increase the quality and quantity of learning time, and address the learning needs of all students.
By June 1st of 2018, 100% of intensive and strategic students will move up one level in fluency as measured by IDEL, Dibels & Easy CBM and we will decrease the discrepancy between HU and non HU students by 50%.
FC3.1 School staff create and maintain a welcoming environment for all families and community members.
By June 1st of 2018, 100% of the criteria for a welcoming environment will be completed as measured by the Site Council’s Survey results.
