Community Council Meeting Minutes

Monday, October 9, 2017


Those in Attendance:  Sundee Ware, Angela Wiser, Launa Godfrey, Bobbi Sullivan, Tiffany Vail




Adams Action Teams: ( Angela Wiser explained action teams.)  

SAC committee - receives and fields concerns

Student Leadership Team - students submitted applications and selections are made, Tom Papiernik is the staff member in charge

Safety Team - handles emergency drills, drills are in place to practice fire drills, earthquake, lock-down, shelter-in-place.  (It was suggested that parents be notified when students have practiced an emergency drill so that parents could practice again at home if they choose.)



  • Jed Ali-Mari from city planning has been helping with curbs being painted. Curbs are now being painted on curbs outside the school for drop off and pick up.
  • Bill Young from city mapping/engineering has put warrant counters on stop signs in place and a decision will be made if enough traffic warrants a 4 way stop at intersections surrounding the school grounds.


PLC (Professional Learning Community) Conference:

  • Most of the faculty attended Sept. 26-28 in Salt Lake City.  (Those who did not attend had already attended one.)
  • The purpose of the PLC is to ensure all students learn at high levels.  This is an RTI practice which is response to intervention.  It can also mean Responsible Teachers Intervening.   
  • Our schedule at Adams is set up in Tiers.  Tier 3 is the time for students to receive intervention on things they need whether they are missing essential skills or needing enriching activities to push them.
  • Essential skills need to be posted or presented to parents with the information so parents know what skills their students need.


Honor Roll: The question was raised whether our school should have an actual Honor Roll.  We currently do not have one in place, but have incentive activities instead so the focus is on growth instead of final scores.  Incentive activities were discussed.


Flagship Document:  Contains non-negotiables for Behavior and for PLC’s.


Student Handbook:  Editing is now completed.  A map of the school with drop off and pick up locations will be included. CC members viewed the draft and a vote was taken for the draft to be uploaded online.


Parent Teacher Conference scheduling is now online for parents to sign up for a time for PTC.
