TSSA Funding Proposal 2020-2021


Teacher Recruitment and Retention:   

Because of our unique personalized learning model designed with students moving at their own pace AND with our courses being solely digital through Canvas, our professional development is different than the regular brick and mortar type PD.  Our teachers need more of a blended learning professional development with some PD practices towards teaching students online and in the blended learning environment.  


Goal #1 -  Students will experience increased success in the blended learning environment at Weber Innovation High School by being ahead of pace according to their graduation plan.  This will facilitate more advanced course opportunities for college and career readiness.  


Goal #1 Action Steps:  Teachers will attend professional development seminars and/or conferences unique to our personalized learning model of delivery and instruction.  Teachers will be required to share these best practices through school level professional development opportunities. 


Goal #1 Measure of Success:  Student GPA will be compared to prior years. Teacher professional development that would include those who attended conferences described in the action steps above relative to personalized learning and student emotional/social support will be compared to prior years.  


Goal #1 Expenditure Areas:  Professional Learning


Funding Proposal Costs for Goal 1:  Costs would depend on the number of conferences and number of teachers sent and up to no more than @ $10,500 total expenditures.  (Click Here)


Student Performance and Academic Achievement:  


We believe an attendance/counselor aide will help track students who are not attending regularly and will also make sure students are being tracked appropriately. 


Goal #2 - Have an attendance aide track the attendance of our full time student population.  


Goal #2 Action Steps - Hire an attendance/counselor aide 

Goal #2 Measures of Success:  We will begin to compare our at risk student population starting with last year’s data (number of cumulative credits) and compare those same students data this year to determine if attendance tracking and accountability is helping increase these students credit count.    


Goal #2 Expenditure Areas -  Personnel

Goal #3 - Analyze and act on trends across academics, attendance, behavior, and social-emotional learning, and be able to equip my school team with early warning indicators aligned to the latest research. School sites across Weber will have access to comprehensive, shared MTSS supports that include data collection systems and intervention menus, where staff will be able to track interventions with increased fidelity.


Goal #3 Action Steps -  Implement Panorama

Goal #3 Measures of Success:  Increase student attendance in our at risk population of students by 10%. 


Goal #3 Expenditure Areas -  Personnel

Rules of Order and Procedure

This template was developed at the request of schools and districts to meet a new requirement for school community councils to adopt Rules of Order and Procedure (53A-1a-108.1). The template may be reviewed and amended by councils to meet their needs or councils may develop their own.

To promote ethical behavior and civil discourse each council member shall:

  • Attend council meetings on time and prepared
  • Make decisions with the needs of students as the main objective
  • Listen to and value diverse opinions
  • Be sure the opinions of those you represent are included in discussions
  • Expect accountability and be prepared to be accountable
  • Act with integrity

Rules of Procedure:

All meetings are open to the public and the public is welcome to attend.

The agenda of each upcoming meeting with draft minutes of the prior meeting will be made available to all council members at least one week in advance.

Minutes will be kept of all meetings, prepared in draft format for approval at the next scheduled meeting.

The council will prepare a timeline for the school year that includes due dates for all required reporting and other activities/tasks that the council agrees to assume or participate in. The timeline will assist in preparation of agendas to be sure the council accomplishes their work in a timely manner.

The chair or a co-chair conducts the meetings, makes assignments and requests reports on assignments. In the absence of the chair or co-chair, the vice-chair or other co-chair shall conduct meetings.

Meetings shall be conducted and action taken according to very simplified rules of parliamentary procedure as required in 53A-1a-108.1(9)(i). Items on the agenda take priority over other discussions coming before the council. Action of the council will be taken by motions and voting. The motions and voting are recorded in the minutes.

A motion (or an action to be taken by the council) is stated as a motion. Someone else on the council “seconds” the motion indicating that at least one other person on the council feels the motion is worthy of discussion. Then the council members may provide input and discussion as called upon by the chair. When discussion seems complete the chair may call for a vote on the motion. Or when a member of the council “calls the previous question” (a motion to end discussion of the first motion), a second is required and then, without discussion the chair calls for a vote that must pass by 2/3. If the vote on the previous question fails the council goes back to discussing the first motion. If the motion to call the previous question passes, the chair directly calls for a vote on the first motion. A vote to call the previous question is usually used to move business along.

Attached is a chart that could be used if the council feels they would like to use additional motions of Parliamentary Procedure in their meetings.

Simple Motions of Parliamentary Procedure

Adjourn yes no no majority
Amend a motion yes yes yes majority
Close nominations yes no yes 2/3
Main motion yes yes yes majority
Point of Order no no no ruled on by chair
Previous Question yes no no 2/3
Reconsider yes yes no majority
Withdrawal of Motion no no no majority


  • A tie vote is a lost vote.
  • A main motion may be amended.
  • Nominations can be closed by saying, “I move to close nominations.”
  • Most motions are main motions.
  • A point of order is offered when there is some question if procedure had been followed correctly.
  • To stop debate or discussion on a motion and force the vote a member would say, “I move the previous question.” This requires a second and a 2/3 vote.
  • Hasty action may be corrected by use of the motion to reconsider. This motion may be made only by one who voted on the prevailing side.
  • A person who made the motion may withdraw the same motion.
