MPES STAFF STUFF
September 5, 2014
No news is good news...?
As of today, I have not heard from GCPS Human Resources regarding a reduction in staff.
I will let everyone know as soon as I hear anything. Until then, follow the link below if you are feeling a bit worried...
Physical "Prompting" VS Restraint
When a student has to be physically restrained, each event must be recorded and logged for reporting to the Georgia DOE (admin will take care of this unless we ask you to complete the form). The GCPS video link below explains the difference between physical prompting, blocking, and restraint.
Our primary focus is the safety of all students and employees. Verbal attempts at deescalation should occur whenever possible but physical restraint may be used if there is an imminent threat to students or staff. When possible, notify the front office immediately for an administrator to respond; remove students from the area as a safety precaution. Please let me know if you have any questions.
RBES Plan Due September 12
If you did SPG testing for your classroom, one of your goals should focus on academic improvement with data points being the pre-test and the post-test as well as any other information you wish to provide. Heather will share more information about this soon.
Staff Calendar revisions
I will let you know as soon as the dates are finalized. The staff calendar in the shared drive is current as of today. Thanks for understanding.
