Community Council

Parent involvement is very important to student academic achievement. By serving on the school council, parents have the opportunity to collaborate with other parents, teachers and the principal to set and achieve school goals. Parents are rewarded with a better understanding of the educational process and have the opportunity to develop relationships with school leadership. A parent always serves as chair of the council. Parents make up the majority of the council and are often the driving force in how School LAND Trust funds are spent.

La participación de los padres es muy importante para el logro académico del estudiante. Al servir en el consejo de la escuela, los padres tienen la oportunidad de colaborar con otros padres, maestros y el director para establecer y alcanzar las metas de la escuela. Los padres son recompensados con una mejor comprensión del proceso educativo y tienen la oportunidad de desarrollar relaciones con el liderazgo escolar. Un padre siempre sirve como presidente del consejo. Los padres constituyen la mayoría del consejo y son a menudo la fuerza impulsora en cómo se gastan los fondos fiduciarios de la escuela LAND.

JMES received $65,889 (2019-20 LT allocation amount) in LT funding for the 2019-20 school year and we spent money on Staff Assistants, Americorps program coordinator, and technology to support our Reading Goal. Prior to COVID 19 school dismissal, JMES was on target in meeting our growth goal for the year. Our current EOY growth goal is not available at this time.

By the end of the 19-20 school year, JMES faculty and staff will increase the percentage of grade 1 students who score At or Above Benchmark in order to ensure students are able to reach mastery.
