Attached is a report of the weeded reference section. These resources will be open to staff to put in their department libraries. Please do one of the following: review the list and indicate what you would like for your department, come down to look at the reference section during your planning or schedule a time after school.


Books will be set aside for the specific department and given to your department leader. Staff will have until December 18th to make their selections (if any) for their department.

SUBSTITUTES IN THE LC

To stay with past practice, please do not send your classes down to the Learning Commons with substitute teachers. Students are not being adequately monitored and technology is being misused. Thank you for your understanding.

YOUTUBE UPDATE:

There have been some issues with students being blocked from YouTube videos. Oakland Schools has made an adjustment to allow teachers to be able to approve videos before sharing with students. A blue bar at the bottom of the video will show up to prompt for approval. However, teachers need to have a Google Classroom set up in order for this to work. See me if you have questions.
