Bonneville Elementary receives funding from the Teacher and Student Success Act. We use these funds, as well as State Land Trust funding, to target academic growth and success while helping students develop self-confidence and self-regulation skills. As a school, our goals focus on improving school-wide performance in Literacy and Numeracy.
For the 2023-24 school year, Bonneville was allotted $102,411 and will be spending it with the current plan:
- Field trip experiences for hands-on learning with the Utah Science with Engineering Education (SEEd) Standards. These funds will help cover the costs associated with transportation and entry fees. These trips could include the zoo, aviary, museums, etc. This is set at $4,200.
- Bonneville will continue to develop a Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program that focuses on the confidence and self-regulation skills students need to attend to their personal growth and performance. This money will be used for training and materials needed for our Wellness program and classroom management development. This is set at $3,000.
- Professional development (PD) helps teachers and paraprofessionals to learn skills and strategies to target student growth in literacy, mathematics, and classroom management. The school will use the funds to send teachers to PD opportunities in the area (conferences, classes, etc.) as well as online learning options. This is set at $3,000.
- The largest portion of our anticipated funds will be used for targeted intervention with paraprofessionals. These paraprofessionals will be trained and implement interventions targeted at literacy and numeracy. This is set at $92,211.
