Anyone have news that they would like to share, I have talked with some of you so go ahead and let the rabbit talk.
1. 95% of students participating in a state test. 2. % of students meeting or exceeding Annual Measurable Objectives (AMO) 3. Attendance
All students and each subgroup with 40 or 10% of students in AYP grade levels must have at least 95% of its students take an annual test.
Last year, Centerville counted: All students Black White SWD Economically disadvantaged Hispanic ELL, for the 1 st time
All students and each subgroup must meet Annual Measurable Objectives (AMO) targets. Elementary students enrolled in school last year from October 6, 2009 through May 7, 2010 were considered FAY (Full Academic Year) and will be counted in our AMO. By the year 2014, 100% of all students must meet or exceed grade level objectives on the CRCT in order for the school to make AYP.
Attendance is our second indicator. Less than 15% of our population as a whole can miss 15 or more days of school.
The first year ESOL student may be deferred from taking Reading, English, Language Arts and Social Studies. The first year ESOL students must take Math and Science. First year ESOL students will be counted in the AYP calculation for participation but not for AMOs.
Students with disabilities who receive special education services at any time during the year are included in the SWD group for AYP.
Students who are eligible for Free and Reduced priced meals are counted as Economically Disadvantaged.
Data notebooks Tomorrow during grade level meetings Dive into the data to make instructional plans for the year.

Thompson & Sweeny, P.C.
Seclusion rooms not permitted (already in place in GCPS) Specifically constructed or designated room or space isolated from common areas Student prevented from leaving
Room is unlocked Staff member is present Staff member is trained in de-escalation techniques or restraint
In-school suspension or Detention Student requested break - in a different location in the room or -separate room
Permitted in emergency situations Immediate danger to self or others De-escalation techniques and/or verbal directives ineffective Terminate when the student is no longer an immediate danger or Student is observed to be in severe distress
Intentionally placed face down on floor or another surface Pressure applied to students body to keep him prone

Does not prohibit a school from taking appropriate action to diffuse a student fight or altercation Does not impose ministerial duty Does not interfere with duties of law enforcement Does not interfere with duties of emergency medical personnel
For restraint: in writing within one school day For removal by emergency medical or police personnel: notify parents immediately
By staff using, supervising or observing the restraint Each time restraint is used
Full continuum of positive behavioral intervention strategies Prevention and de-escalation techniques Physical restraint Maintain records of the training
Ministerial Duty Simple, absolute, and definite act Requires the execution of a specific duty Personal liability Discretionary duty Calls for exercise of personal deliberation and judgment
School receptionist was sued after releasing a student without complying with the school check out policy. Supreme Court recognized that local school policies may create ministerial duties. Question is whether policy imposes hard and fast rules that do not allow for the exercise of discretion. No longer a blanket exception for managing and supervising students
State Law and Local Board Policy required eye protection during instruction involving explosive materials. Student sued teacher after being injured during presentation involving two litter bottle filled with air and water that was used to demonstrate a rocket. Facts: Teacher did not view experiment as involving explosives. NASA prepared instructions warned of risk of explosion Mechanical engineer testified that experiment was not an explosion, but a controlled venting of pressure. DECISION: Teacher entitled to official immunity as policy required the exercise of deliberation and judgment to determine whether explosive material was being used.
