2. 2nd QTR Data Review / Celebrations
I. Tutoring Program- Promoting it more with parents and students. Shared ideas to
increase numbers. Clarification that it is available on a drop-in basis on Tuesday
and Thursday from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. Students are going to their teacher for help
first, not going to the assigned tutor teacher. It is posted who the teacher is
doing tutoring.
II. Attendance- Average daily attendance first quarter was 95%. Second quarter
improved to 97%. Increase in tardiness. Teacher driven intervention. Unexcused
check-ins are on the rise. We are trying to address this.
III. Make-up Credit- Working with counselors and teachers to decrease the number
of deficient credits of 9 th grade students. Packets in place for all core subjects for
first quarter. Free remediation/recovery packet to earn credit. Program is in
place now. Need students to take advantage of it. It requires 4 hours of time
after school with the student working with the teacher.
a. Suggestion- Suggestion of implementing something similar to the MAP
period at Herriman high school. We have Colt Corral time for
remediation at CMMS.
b. Question- What is the process for teachers who are calling students to
remediation to identify the students?
c. Answer- Students are identified by whether they meet mastery, not just
if they have a failing grade, and then are called to remediation with the
teacher. Students go to the classes they are supposed to get help to get
up to mastery.
3. Trustland Update / Suggestions
I. Salaries are for tutoring and teacher planning days. Mentor observations as well.
Solutions Tree conference is coming up in the Spring and money will be spent to

send teachers.
II. Equipment money was spent on Chrome Books. Created two new portable labs.
Plans for more technology. iPads and updating the computer labs.
III. Cell Tower money can be used for additional teacher aids, looking at several
a. Question- Do we have mac book labs or just chrome books labs?
b. Suggestion- It is needed to have computers that work with the Chinese
language characters.
c. Answer- We are using the labs in the media center to accommodate the
language testing. The computers there are working for the language.
IV. Concern about ways to use space, including labs as classrooms. Planning for
growth, anticipating how to use the money with more teachers.
V. We will be approving the Trustland budget during our next meeting on March
29 th during community council.
a. Question- Are there suggestions on how to use the money?
b. Information Shared- Surveys from the legislature asking for feedback.
c. Suggestion- Advocate for local control of Trustland funding.

4. SNAP Plan Approval
I. Safe walking route was shared.
a. Question- What has been updated in the walking route map?
b. Answer- Cautions are added. Using the sidewalks. Extra caution in using
the sidewalks to across Mountain View Corridor.

II. Instructions for students living in Anthem Park subdivision was added because it
was newly built subdivision.
III. Issues and concerns we can address with the city and the district.
1) High volume of traffic
2) Commercial businesses being built so it adds volume of traffic.
3) The new elementary school will also add traffic.
4) Concern about the speed limit of 40 mph.
5) Crossing guard issue. Some cities do have a crossing guard, but the city
has to budget it.
i. Update- Cody met with the officials from the city to put a hawk
signal in the crosswalk. It is in the agenda. Unsure of when it could
be implemented in the city plan.
ii. Suggestion- Petition the city council to increase the priority for
the hawk signal. We try to send the message of how vital this is
for safety.

6) Concerns about Anthem Park Blvd sidewalks being incomplete.
i. Action Item- Julie will reach out to Herriman City Council.
ii. MOTION- Julie motions to approve the SNAP plan. Liz seconded
the motion. Motion carried unanimously.

5. Programs Update
I. Intermural sport program after school- Fall there was a volleyball group. Floor
Hockey is going on for Spring. They will rotate different sports. The kids are

having lots of fun. They rotate through different teams. The PE coach is
supervising. Part of the Tues/ Thurs after school time. Plans to expand this
II. Announcements- We are doing video announcements. The students are really
liking it. The kids are gaining confidence. The kids are paying attention to them
better on the video. Kids are more engaged. The announcements were recorded
and teachers could show it later. When a sub is in a class, they can go to the class
next door to see the announcement.
III. OverDrive- A neat opportunity is OverDrive through the library. The students can
download and access ebooks and audiobooks. There are no fines. 7 th -12 th grade.
a. Question- How many can you check out?
b. Answer- Not sure of the limit. There are lots of new options because of
a shared OverDrive library among schools. We are purchasing books to
go on the OverDrive to add to our school collection. It’s a shared district
library. It’s available for all students.

IV. Television- TV installed down in the cafeteria. Worked with Herriman High to get
high school information to our CMMS students. We are excited to work with HHS
to help fund the TV. We now have the TV announcements. Appreciate the high
school to work with us on this. It’s a PPT video program. The HHS brings us new
information to share. Basic calendar items are on there now. Advertisements
about extracurricular activities. Help the 9 th graders feel more connected to the
a. Suggestion- College and career videos to be added as well. The council
liked the idea to add that information.
b. Suggestion- Adding pictures of student to the TV as well.
c. Suggestion- SBO’s survival guide. Asking them to do a video
presentation. Yearbook pictures would be an easy way to get that
d. Question- Do the SBO’s do a training for the officers to work together.
It is difficult because of scheduling.

6. Parking Lot/ Transportation- Concern- The biggest parking lot feeds out the same exit as
the buses. From the district stand point it is a bus zone. The busses are on a strict
schedule. We are looking at fixing the issues. Timing is critical. Pedestrians are also a
concern. We are setting up cones to try to direct traffic.

a. Suggestion- Widen the north exit and have a right turn and left turn
exits. Try to get the right turn funneling out faster.
b. Question- Can we explore a no parking zone?
c. Answer- We would have to check-in with the city.

7. Counseling Center Updates-
I. Parent University- Next week during student led conferences. During the 20
minute drop-in time.
II. Cone Meeting scheduled to help with high school transition.
III. STEM initiative for girls- The Counseling Center took a field trip to Adobe and

IV. Question- What about opportunities for our boys?
V. 9 th Grade PCCRS
VI. Suggestion- Spend time on training parents about arena scheduling.
VII. Comment- Transition is very key. Thanks for the efforts to help transition happen
from elementary and to high school.

8. Multi-School Lockdown-
I. Yes, it is happening. It will include Herriman High, Athlos, and CMMS. We will
report results afterwards.

9. Other...

I. Please review the minutes.
MOTION: Move to adjourn- Second, “I”. 😉
Post-meeting follow-up by Julie Williams:
i. Coralee Moser from Herriman City Council responded:
Here's the update on the proposed Hawk Sign at CMMS. The project was already
approved in concept but not funded until a larger budget amendment was on the
agenda. That budget amendment happens to be this Wednesday night for Herriman City
Council. The signal will be installed no later than just before the next school year, but
Herriman City is working with the installers, the county, to expedite it.
