A Message from the Principal

Dear Cragmont Families,

The Cragmont Site Council consists of a group of parents, staff members and me. The site council meets monthly throughout the school year. We spend our meeting time examining the previous year’s school site plan, understanding the job duties of the currently funded positions, and analyzing school and district data. At our last May meeting, we finalized a budget for the 2019-20 school year.

Some of the data we examined to inform our budget decisions included school and district math data showing a substantial achievement gap at Cragmont and district wide. We also noticed a declining English learner student enrollment (from 40 EL students 2 years ago to 26 EL students this year). Based on this data, we determined our final budget for next year. We decided to fund 40% of our RTI Teacher position (1.0 position including district funding), 25% of our Literacy Coach position (1.0 position with district funding), and a new Math Intervention teacher position at 40%. We also decided to take the ELD teacher position out of this budget (40% is still funded by the district).

I want to thank our Site Council Committee members for their dedicated work on this committee.
