Sprucewood Elementary School Community Council spent $47,313.00 of LAND Trust funds in 2020-2021.  It was determined that funds should be spent on salaries and technology equipment.  To increase reading achievement, students were identified as performing below benchmark on Acadience testing.  Students identified received daily intervention support from intervention assistants under the direction of the achievement coach. $34,970.75 was used to pay for the interventionists’ salaries and employee benefits.   $10,632.00 was allocated to pay for technology equipment.  This funding was used to purchase chromebooks to bring our student population up to a 1:1 ratio. We also purchased timers for chromebook carts to comply with fire safety standards.  $1,710.25 was allocated to pay for textbooks.  This funding was used to purchase phonemic awareness and phonics manuals to support reading instruction.  

The Sprucewood School Community Council views our LAND Trust plan resources as a crucial component of our student achievement.

Meadow Wood Drive, Willow Wood Drive to Riparian Drive: East to 1000 East, south on west side of 1000 East to crossing guard in front of school on 1000 East. 

Pond Ridge Drive to Riparian Drive or Cattail Drive: East to 1000 East, north on west side of 1000 East to crossing guard in front of school. 

*Sunset Ponds area-encouraged to carpool.

Zone 5

West of 700 East (Bus Zone): Ride the bus rather than walk or ride their bicycles to school.

East of 700 East between 12000 South and 12300 South (Bus Zone): Ride the bus rather than walk or ride their bicycles to school.

*Walking east along 12300 South to 1000 East to access the school is not an approved safe route.

  • SAFE Route Concerns for Canyons District Proposal:

Students living in the Sunset Ponds area do not qualify for transportation and do not have safe access to a sidewalk along 700 East.  Students have two options to walk to school.  They can walk through the Wetlands Park or walk along 700 E without a sidewalk or curb strip to Meadow Wood. 

Potential Solution: Declare the location a hazardous route and add a bus stop at the turn in for Sunset Ponds subdivision

  • SAFE Route Concerns for Community Proposal:
  1. Students living in the Sunset Ponds area do not qualify for transportation and do not have safe access to a sidewalk along 700 East and Meadow Wood.  Students have two options to walk to school.  They can walk through the Wetlands Park or walk along 700 E without a sidewalk or curb strip to Meadow Wood.  

Potential Solution: Add a sidewalk from 118 South to Meadow Wood Drive and continue on Meadow Wood Drive

  1. Many student cross at Riparian and Cattail.  Cars travel at high speeds at this intersection and visibility is low due to so many cars parked in the street.

Potential Solution: Add a crossing light where students can push the button to make the lights flash and show red for cars to stop while kids cross (like the one that exists on Sunburn)

  • Infrastructure Changes Proposal:

There are no known infrastructure changes in our boundaries
