Transition Plus

Helping students to become better citizens!

Shout Out Box

We have brought back the Shout Out Box- It is in the front office.


Please remember to shout out to students and staff alike.


Each team has a different color for their shout outs- Engagement Team will be recognizing students. Starting Monday October 2 we will call the name of one student from each team to come and receive something from Jason's office. Snack, flavored water or candy bar.


The other shout outs will be put on the board outside of the copy room for everyone to read.

Due Process

If you have not already done so, please make sure you have updated all of your IEPs with the appropriate team members on it.


If goals need to be adjusted to fit this setting make sure there is documentation to support it, along with a meeting if necessary.


Please remember to include the team members on your students' IEPs so they can participate- including nursing, OT , PT, SLP, BVI, DHH, DAPE, VRS, Work coordinators etc.


Make sure the appropriate staff is invited to the IEP meetings, they can determine whether they need to attend or not.

New Technology on its way!

Thank you for being patient as we have been waiting for new technology.


I heard on Friday we will be getting the additional technology from the district. We will be getting 140 Chrome Books that have touch screen technology.


Please fill out this form to indicate what your technology needs are. We will be collecting all of the Chromebooks on Friday September 29th so we can work on redistribution the following Monday.

Staff Attendance Incentive

We are currently at 12/20 days of having 95% or better attending.


Keep up the great attendance as this does two things-

  • It models for our students what responsible work behavior looks like
  • It helps all staff to be able to do the job they need to do so we aren't spread even thinner than we currently are.


Accuplacer

The first Accuplacer testing date of the school year is Wednesday, October 25th. The test will be offered periods 1, 2, and 3. Please direct interested students to the sign up sheet on Britt's door. Please note the computer lab will be unavailable during Accuplacer testing. Thank you!

Thanks for All You Do!
