From the Tower...
Head of School
In our attempt to finalize plans, there has been some confusion around the times that the Baton Rouge and Lafayette blended sites will be open to serve students. To clarify, each of the sites will open at 9:00 and close at 3:00. It is important that all staff members report by 8:45. If you are going to be late, please contact the site coordinator.
Shout out to all of you who verified that you read the Flight Plan last week!
Don't forget to have your DDI Templates completed by noon on Tuesday. You guys are AWESOME!!

There is a nifty new button Lookup button on the FAST Tracker. Once you choose LAVCA as the school, you can enter the SID number of a student in any of your classes and press the lookup button. The Family ID, Student Name, Student Grade, and whether or not the student has Special Programs will be automatically populated for you.
10% is the magic number. Our goal and K12’s expectation is that 10% of all student be referred to FAST for extra support. Please check to see which of your students should be referred.
Before you make a referral, please make sure that you have made 1) made contact attempts 2) tried interventions 3) sent the Teacher Referral Email (located at www.tinyurl.com/lavcafastresources) and 4) completed the Students First: Teacher Compliance Running Notes-FAST Referral Note:
We need this documentation before a referral can be approved.
If there is an emergency/crisis situation for Tom (firstname.lastname@example.org), you can email him and CC Liz (email@example.com) the name of the student and the situation he/she is in; however, you MUST still compete a referral in the tracker.
If your grade/grade band has important information for students, please keep us (including your FASL) in the loop. We want to know.
