Head of School
First I want to take some time to again welcome Danielle to the new Head of School position. We are expecting great things and trust that we will get there with Danielle in the lead.
We received our SPS score this week, as shown above. We wanted you to have the opportunity to see it and discuss it with administration. We will be holding an SPS session for administration and staff on Monday at 3:30. If you are not in a live session, we encourage you attend. You can ENTER HERE.
8- 12 Principal
Here is your Flight Plan for next week. There are some minor changes, like everything for next week is in the top table for easy access, instead of in three different tables. Let us know if you think of ways to make it even more 'user friendly'.
Don't forget to send your Literary Rally participant's list to Erin! Let's put our best and brightest in the spotlight!

FAST/Teacher BOT Communications **IMPORTANT**
To better help with communication between teachers and FASLs, please follow this protocol:
1) If you create a BOT plan for a student who is in FAST, please email the BOT plan to the LC/student AND FASL. Title the email BOT Plan and save it as a TVS note.
2) Anytime you give verbal BOT plan instructions, please make a note of the specific instructions given, and make sure the subject of the note says BOT plan AND
email your FASL to check TVS notes.
All BOT plans from FASLs will be noted as such in TVS.
For the next several weeks, I will highlight each of our FASLs. This week, we are highlighting Ms. Kim Jones, our K-4 FASL. Kim has a BA in Mass Communication and Marketing and a M.Ed. in Administration & Supervision. She is certified in grades K-8 and Principal K-12. She has completed Instructional Coaching and Leadership and the Educational Leader 2 programs. She has attended Xavier University, Southern University at New Orleans and Baton Rouge, LSU, and the University of Tennessee. Kim taught grades 3-8 and is also a Train the Trainer for Study Island and Dibels. She has also been a reading coach, curriculum director, interim assistant principal, and a master teacher in her career.
Her daughter, Eboni, is a senior this year, and Kim has been busy with senior activities.
Kim has thoroughly enjoyed working at LAVCA and enjoys working with the K-4 teachers. She brings a lot of experience and expertise to the FAST team and LAVCA.
