Community Council Meeting Minutes

December 1, 2016 at 5:30 p.m.

  1. In attendance: Rick Proffer, Jessica Volpe, Nicole McGarry, Seth Robinson, Amy Rich, Melanie Wilhelmsen

  1. Quinn Henderson from Weber School District’s Technical Services gave a presentation on internet safety and digital citizenship.  Weber School District provides two filters to help students and teachers have a safe internet experience.  Commonsensemedia.org is a website that teachers and parents can use to teach kids how to be responsible digital citizens. 

  1. Seth Robinson presented Rules of Order for our community council to use during meetings.  These rules of order are attached as a secondary document to these minutes.  Melanie Wilhelmsen motioned to accept these rules of order.  Nicole McGarry seconded the motion.  All were in favor. 

  1. Seth Robinson presented a yearly timeline for our community council.  The next two community council meetings will be held on January 12, 2017, and March 9, 2017.  Melanie Wilhelmsen motioned to accept the timeline.  Rick Proffer seconded the motion.  All were in favor.

  1. Rick Proffer reviewed data summaries from both MarLon Hills and Club Heights for the 2015-2016 school year.  The demographics at the two schools were quite different from each another so it is difficult to predict student test scores for Burch Creek students. 

  1. Rick Proffer and Jessica Volpe will discuss grade-level priorities for 2017-2018 school year during an upcoming faculty meeting.  They will report these priorities at the next community council meeting. 

  1. Nicole McGarry motioned to adjourn the meeting.  Seth Robinson seconded the motion.  All were in favor.
