BIO-CLOCK UPDATE

The district's biometric clocks have received a facelift. Following a pilot test, the new look will appear on clocks at all campuses and district facilities in January 2018. All of the usual elements are still on the face of the device, however a few icons have changed locations

SUBSTITUTE TIP OF THE MONTH

Serving Students with Special Needs: As we begin the second semester it’s always nice to revisit curriculum strategies and classroom management for students who are a part of our special populations.


As the school year progresses we find more substitutes in longer multi day assignments needing new ideas or a reminder of practices to utilize. I have attached a link which has free printable materials, articles, and ideas that can not only work for our special needs students but can also be adapted to our struggling learners. Please click on the following link: Special Needs and Classroom Management

ASSIGNMENT ACCEPTANCE REMINDER

Please be reminded that you most accept five assignments a month to remain an active substitute. Due to the holiday season we have extended a grace period, but we will be looking closely from here on out.

SUBSTITUTE FEEDBACK ON CAMPUS EXPERIENCE

From your group efforts we've created substitute feedback questions based on your most commonly mentioned subjects, and we have included them below for your convenience.


  • Was a clear lesson plan provided?
  • Were you provided with appropriate resources to fulfill your job duties (contacts, emergency plan, keys, seating charts, school maps, etc.)?
  • How well did you feel welcome and supported by campus staff?
  • Did you have support for students with behavioral challenges?
  • Would you be interested in returning to this school in the future?

JANUARY EVENTS IN DALLAS

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT: Single Variable Calculus


A New Look at Differentiation: Think derivatives mean "slopes"? Not anymore... In this module, we will reconsider what a derivative is and means in terms of the asymptotic (or big-O) notation. This will give us a new language for describing and understanding rates of change and the rules that govern them. Click here to enroll
