Jennifer Kimber, from Helping Services for Northeast Iowa presented information to the 7-12 staff about understanding adverse childhood experiences (ACE's) at the Monday, October 3rd professional development day. 

What are ACE's?

ACEs are significant traumas which can result in actual changes in brain development. These changes may affect a child's learning ability, social skills, and can result in long-term health problems.  

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) views ACEs as one of the major health issues in the 21st century. 

Resilience brings hope.  Resilience is the ability to adjust (or bounce back) when bad things happen.  Research shows resilience helps reduce the effects of ACE's.  Protective factors are internal and external resources that help us build our resilience.  This fits well with the Growth Mindset training that we received in September. 

"To build better futures, we need to build better brains." 

Caring relationships are a key ingredient for healthy brain development.

Enriching Students

In the High School we have recently began using an online program for student scheduling during Homebase time.  Enriching Students is the Response to Intervention (RTI) tool that is specifically designed to meet the challenges of scheduling middle and high school students for regular remedial or enrichment sessions.

Teachers are able to schedule any student in school to their Homebase, or another teacher's for extra help, or a meeting.

The quick schedule feature allows teachers to schedule a student or group of students to their homeroom or class in just a few clicks.  This can help teachers easily schedule students for club or activity meetings as well as a time for students to receive extra help. 

Students are notified by the program sending them an email of their current schedule.
