Use of Edgenuity for Grade Repair

Thank you to all of our teachers that are utilizing grade repair in Edgenuity to increase student success! Please remember that if you are assigning units or lessons in Edgenuity for grade repair - you must use those courses marked Blended. OC and CR are for full credit classes.


If you are not yet taking advantage of Edgenuity for grade repair and would like additional information, please contact Mrs. Blake or Coach Lane. They can assist you with log in procedures and assigning lessons.

Don't forget to recognize your students with a POSITIVE OFFICE REFERRAL!!

The Positive Office Referral should be used when a teacher wishes to reward a student for something academic or behavioral. This differs from the ROAR award in that Positive Office referrals can be issued at any time and for any positive behavior worthy of reward. The ROAR award is for students working hard over a period of time and producing academic results. To submit a Positive Office Referral, CLICK HERE. Students that receive a POR will be called in by an administrator and will also be awarded 25 Tiger Pride points!

Teacher Toolkit

The photo below came from a twitter ed chat I followed. Thought this was a great idea and way to show some grace and teach some life lessons all at once!

Exemption Information

Clarifications/FAQ

- If a student is doubled up in Science, can they exempt both? Yes, they can as long as they don't exceed the total number of exemptions.. For example, a junior may choose to exempt two science courses, 1 social studies, 1 math, and choose to take their English final.


- What absences count towards exemptions? All absences coded E and U will be counted towards exemption totals. T and L will also count - 3 tardies/lates equals 1 absence for exemption purposes.

Don't Forget to Sign Up for your Biometric Screening!

HAVING AN ISSUE WITH TECHNOLOGY?

Our campus IT is Joshua Martin and his office is in the library! Please remember to put in a CRM ticket instead of emailing him when you have a request. If he spends his time putting in your tickets, he loses time to work on the tickets! Click Here for instructions. THANK YOU!
