Safety and Security-Lockdown

Safety and Security will be in the building sometime in October to conduct an unannounced emergency Lockdown on our campus. Remember the PUBLIC ADDRESS for Lockdown is:

LOCKDOWN, Locks, Lights Out, Out of sight,

LOCKDOWN: Locks, Lights and Out of Sight,

LOCKDOWN: Locks, Lights, Out of Sight,

A lockdown means there is threat inside the building.

Silence your cell phones but bring them with you during a Lockdown along with your emergency bags: Emergency Bags should contain a current roster, first aid the bag given to you by the nurse, book to read, a bottled water,

Do not use radios during Lockdowns.

A Remind 101 Text will be sent to you when the Lockdown is over.

Visible Learning for Teachers: Maximizing Impact on Learning,

John Hattie’s book, Visible Learning for Teachers: Maximizing Impact on Learning, author John Hattie shares that micro teaching, or engaging in conducting lessons and then having post-discussions about the lessons, has a very high effect size. This means the research resoundingly supports the act of working together, talking about lessons, observing each other, and learning with our colleagues. It has a positive effect on students' level of achievement and is something we all should be doing. If we were all to leave our egos at the door as Sean did, we would be able to make our teaching and learning visible, supporting and refining our teaching with each other. Think of the powerful effect this would have on student learning and achievement, not to mention the support for each other.
