BUDGET

Title I BUDGET

     Our School Improvement Team is comprised of staff members and parents.  Staff member signed up for two of the seven breakout committees (Reading, Math, Science, Technology, Parent Involvement, Wellness and PBIS).  Each breakout committee has members from various grade levels, paraprofessionals, as well as parents.  During our School Improvement Meetings, all members meet as a whole group monthly to review and update the School Improvement Plan (SIP).  After the whole group meeting, the breakout committees relocate to their designated areas to work on, edit, and plan any strategies/activities that are in the committees’ part of the plan.  The meeting minutes from each committee are emailed to the staff and also located on the school network and in our documentation binder.  This facilitates the coordination of school-wide activities aligned with Federal, State and local services. Our School Improvement Plan drives instruction and is the foundation to improving our school.   Our School Improvement Plan is a living and forever changing document.  This plan not only supports our school to the benefit of student growth it also incorporates student services including, violence prevention programs, nutrition programs, housing programs (families in transition), Head Start programs, and parent involvement programs.

     We have various funding sources that are used to implement programs, strategies, and events that appear in our School Improvement Plan.  Title I funds are used for classroom materials that support the Common Core standards, Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies programs as well as in-house costs for family engagement materials and refreshments.  Family Engagement funds are spent on materials for events and activities, staff stipends at events, instructional resources, and refreshments for parent activities throughout the year.  The Judy Center funds are used for Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten professional development, equipment, and materials for their classrooms. Local allocations are to support office supplies, material of instruction, fine arts, physical education, and media.  This funding is controlled by the Board of Education and are accessible through efinance . PBIS, which supports the climate initiative, receives funding from school fundraisers.  These monies are used to help defer the cost of transportation, refreshments, incentives and other related fees throughout the year. 

Other community partners include the following:

  • Dental Health, Sealants, and flu vaccinations:  Funded by the Somerset County Health Department
  • Judy Center funding – Karen Karten
