Introducing Jennifer Oyer our New School Nurse!
My name is Jennifer Oyer and I am your new school nurse. I wanted to give you a little information about myself. I have been a nurse for 15 years and before that I was an EMT. I was the Neonatal/Pediatric transport coordinator at Sacred Heart Children's hospital for 6 years, in Pensacola, FL. I flew all over the country and internationally to bring sick children to facilities that could care for them. I also lived in Blue Ridge, Ga for 3 years until last year when I moved to the Land O'Lakes area where I live with my 7 year old son Wyatt, who attends Bexley Elementary. Before coming to Pasco County schools, I worked at St. Joe's Women's Hospital in the NICU.
HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS: Action Required- Complete Survey
As part of our partnership with Equal Opportunity Schools, we are asking each staff member to take a 30-minute online survey designed to gather important information. The data will be presented back to us later this winter so that we can better understand how to build on what is already working to enhance equity in our school. Please use your staff email address as your login to the survey (see link below).
Phase 1: Climate Survey
This is the questionnaire regarding staff experiences, equity, barriers to advanced coursework, and staff assets. Often, people who don't teach work with or have their own children who are in classes. We are curious about both teaching and non-teaching staff’s valuable feedback and perceptions about student preparation for AP, the challenge of non-honors courses, and other key issues. For non-teaching staff, many questions have a "not applicable/do not know" option and the few that don't tend to provide an "other" response that staff can use to share that they don't currently teach and so don't have an opinion.
Please be as honest and frank as you can. This information will NOT be tied back to you or used for evaluative purposes.
Phase 2 will be completed in October
Students will be taking the EOP surveys on Monday through the Social Studies department.
ATTENTION HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS:
There are 20 high school students who have 5th period off campus placeholders. On the activity period day, please tell these students to go to the media center so that they don’t have to leave campus and then return to 4th period. We will also be notifying the students directly, but wanted you to be aware of where they are to go.
Help us get Gold Volunteer Status!
However, we need you to:
Join the CCMHS Equal Opportunity Partnership Committee
The Equal Opportunity Committee works to better serve underrepresented students and improve the accessibility of advanced learning classes. As a group, we will analyze gap charts, equity pathway reports, and review end of year student/administrator surveys. The goal of EOC is to make equity a priority and improve access to AP courses at CCMHS.
Submit a Faculty Howlout!
“Faculty Howlout’s will drive our selections for Staff Member of the Week. Each week we will announce all of our HS and MS Coyote staff members of the week! These staff members will have their names announced on the intercom on Friday. At the end of the quarter the Staff Members of the Week will be invited to a special luncheon in their honor! We look forward to receiving numerous staff shout outs so we have many to select from each week!”

Submit a Student Howlout!
Student howlouts will drive our selections for Student of the Week. Each week we will select two HS and two MS students as the Coyotes of the Week. At the end of the week these students will be invited down to the flag pole in the center of the courtyard where we will have a Coyote Flag to be raised on Friday. These students will get the honor of raising the flag each Friday, and will have their names announced on the intercom! At the end of the quarter we will have a breakfast for all of our Students of the Week and their parents.

Professional Development Opportunities
New Teacher and Clinical Educator Training Dates for 2018-2019- Share with new teachers and staff
New Teachers that are in their first or second year have 2 professional development courses during the school year. Please reference this document to view those PD dates as well as the dates for Clinical Educator Trainings. Please share these dates with your teachers. If you have questions, contact Jenny Rinck.
Core Professional Development Plans-Share with Staff
In the Office for Leading and Learning SharePoint site within the "Leading and Learning Resources" section you will find documents that outline the Core professional development offerings for 18-19. An overview document can be found using this link, but is also in the CORE PD folder, this is the information shared during the principal meeting as well. Please share with staff and don't hesitate to reach out to Jennifer Waselewski for additional questions.
Gifted Endorsement Courses- Share with Staff
Pasco County Schools will be offering gifted endorsement courses for free throughout the school year to provide our teachers an opportunity to develop their knowledge about gifted education and add the endorsement to their teaching certificate. Gifted teachers must be endorsed or actively working towards endorsement. In order to receive endorsement, teachers must complete 5 courses. The courses are blended formats with 3 mandatory face-to-face classes and the bulk of the coursework completed online. While these courses can be helpful — all participants complete the course with lessons, strategies, and activities that can be used immediately in their classrooms - they are 60-hour courses. Participants should plan to devote an appropriate amount of time each week to complete the research and learning activities.
This document lists course information. Please share this with your teachers and have those interested complete the registration request form for the 2018-19 school year. Teachers that have been tagged to gifted students will be prioritized for enrollment. Please contact Kristin Ingold with any questions.
Fall Reading Endorsement Course Offerings-
Pasco County Schools offers five reading endorsement courses throughout the school year and summer to provide our teachers an opportunity to add the endorsement to their teaching certificate. In order to receive the endorsement, teachers complete courses that develop their understanding of the foundations of language, research of best practices, assessment, and differentiation in reading, as well as a semester practicum. Once all five courses are successfully completed, teachers can add the endorsement to their certificate.
The link below lists the courses offered this fall, their myPGS course number, and details about dates that the courses run for the summer. Also linked is a FAQ document that provides additional information about endorsement requirements. Please share this with anyone who may be interested in your buildings.
We are anticipating high enrollment in these courses; please encourage teachers to register quickly. If you have any questions, please contact Rachel Hatten.
