Summary of 2013-14 Final Report

            Funds were spent in a variety of ways meant to target not only the struggling learner, but the learner in need of enrichment.  We were able to fund 4 sessions of summer school targeted for students in need of remediation and credit.  These sessions included the academic areas of Reading, Writing, Math and Science.  We were also able to hire and pay an aide to come and tutor students that were struggling with poor grades or performance.  This aide worked during our structured study hall time.  To increase our focus on upper level kids, we made a commitment to pay tuition and fees to enrichment programs for student who sought them out.  As a result, we were able to pay tuition for 9 students to attend the eSmart Summer Camp.  Funds were also set aside and used to support our educational supply money.  Purchases included items that support our new 10 period schedule and elective classes.

Serving on the Community Council is a great way for parents and teachers to contribute and help improve academic performance at our school.  Utah schools receive an annual dividend from the school trust lands.  Our council decides how these funds will be used.  Click on the link below to track the yearly funding that KMS has received.  If you are interested in becoming a member of our School Community Council, please contact Mandie Luce @ 435-644-5800
