Getting to Know the Department

Woody Crosby: Online Learning Lab Teacher at Aldine High

Big image

I am a jack of all trades and master of none. My educational background proves it. That is why I was drafted to teach self-paced courses in 1978. I have jumped from school and school district as needed. I have been involved with computerized instruction since it started in Aldine ISD. My vast background has allowed me to bridge gaps in others’ learning regardless the subject or problem. I have earned all the gray hairs, bruises, and scars as computerized courses and learning have developed.


I am Woody, ut when you look up my name on e-mail it is spelled, Marion. I was named after my mother’s aunt Marion and my father’s brother Brooks add on the last name of Lockwood and you get Woody. I am the proud mother of four and grandmother of 15.


I am all about water. I was born in upstate New York and raised on Martha’s Vineyard in the town of Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts. Being the product of a teacher and preacher you get a water rat. I started teaching swimming and working as a lifeguard at the age of 12. I sail, canoe, boat, fish, surf, and swim: you name it. I am all things water.

Procedures for Students Completing or Incompleting Courses

Students Should be Marked:

INCOMPLETE:


-Student: The student has exhausted 18 weeks and the student has not completed the course in Edgenuity or Schoology.


-Teacher: The teacher must mark the student INCOMPLETE on E-portal and disable the course in Edgenuity. Do not archive the student.


-Counselor: The counselor must create a new Online Tracking Form (OTF) with the same course if the student still needs the course (with the new start date).

COMPLETE:


-Student: The student must complete the course in Edgenuity and Schoology and must have a cumulative exam of 70 or above within 18 weeks.


-Teacher: The teacher must mark the OTF complete on Eportal, the course must be completed on Edgenuity, and on the spreadsheet.


-Counselor: If the semester is not over, the counselor must assign a new course as soon as possible in order to minimize loss of instructional time.

WITHDRAWN:


-Student: The student is no longer in the teacher's SMS roster before exhausting the 18 weeks.


-Teacher: The teacher must mark the OTF as withdrawn, the course must be disabled, and the spreadsheet should be marked as withdrawn.


-Counselor: The counselor has created a schedule change (prior to the student being marked withdrawn).

TRANSFER:


-Student: This transfer occurs when the semester is over and the student still has been enrolled for less than 18 weeks in the course.


-Teacher: The teacher will receive an OTF with the word “transfer” after the course name to indicate that this student already has a course in Edgenuity. The teacher must then enable the course in Edgenuity.


-Counselor: When a student needs to roll over the semester, the counselor must create a new OTF with the new teacher's name on it and must write “transfer” after the course name to indicate that the student is transferring teachers (the start date will be the same as the original course. The student will have 18 weeks from original start date).

6th Period Enrollments

Students 9th through 11th grade will now pay a fee of $130 per course for initial credit courses. This fee will have to be paid to a counselor prior student enrollment.


12th Grade students will pay a reduced $30 fee per course.

Spreadsheets

Thank you for all the lab teachers who have updated their spreadsheets. Remember that your SLOs are now linked to the data on your spreadsheets, so it is vital that you update them weekly.


There have been several teachers who have sent and/or shared with me their own spreadsheet. Every teacher must complete the information on the master teacher spreadsheet copy. I am including a video on how to input your data on the master copy.
