PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports)
Melissa Adams, Kevin Carter, Lorrinda Kisley, and I attended the PBIS training at Elkader on Monday. This was a day of learning and sharing with other districts as everyone works toward achieving a safe, nurturing school environment. Much of the focus is on common expectations, identifying unsafe areas, and providing systems approaches toward the environment that we all would want our children to attend.

Upcoming...
Monday: December 13, 2014 Board Meeting: 
  • Recommendation for approval of agreement with EduCare for reading and math tutoring after school beginning in January. This would be for families meeting SINA criteria under NCLB.
  • Pending board approval, we are preparing to serve the K-8 breakfasts with two serving lines. This would allow us to be more efficient with serving, serve more students, and ensure that students are arriving to class on time.

Tuesday:

Wednesday
  • K-5 in-service will be focused on literacy standards of the Iowa Core curriculum. This is important as it is a key component of our intervention schedule and strategies.
