Daniel Wright Athletic Fields
The Board received an overview of the Daniel Wright athletic fields and its uses by Mr. Scott Gaunky, Director of Facilities. The athletic fields are primarily used during physical education classes, soccer games, and track and field practice. Over time, additional drainage has been installed to keep the western portion of the school grounds dry. The Board will continue to discuss the athletic fields as part of the facility plan.
Strategic Plan Goals
The Administration updated the Board with the Strategic Goals for the 2022-2023 school year. These goals include the expansion of critical thinking and problem solving learning in the classroom, enhancing individualized learning for students, and further implementation of social emotional learning in an effort to create safe, healthy and just communities. The administration will bring the goals back to the Board with expanded action plans.
An assessment report of students’ Measures of Academic Progress to the Board showed that students are growing academically at pre-pandemic levels in math and reading. In all subject areas, students in grades 3-8 showed overall expected growth and higher than expected growth.
Updated Facility Plan Matrix
The Board was presented with an updated five-year facility plan. Improvements include infrastructure projects like boiler pump replacements, playground surface replacement, and ceiling tile replacement. The Board will continue to review the matrix at upcoming meetings.
