Assessing for Learning Teachers use a variety of methods to monitor and adjust instruction and to assess what students have learned. Teachers use a variety of indicators, including formative and summative assessments, to evaluate student progress. Teachers provide opportunities, methods, feedback, and tools for student self-assessment. DV’s Focus for Academic: Success for All!

Parent Support is Key! Don’t rely on your child’s memory. Check teachers’ website on a routine basis. Ask questions. Why? What do you think? Ask your child to explain, justify and analyze. Give time to collaborate with classmates. Require that each has contacts from all classes. Review with them for Assessments. Ask to present projects. Look for accuracy, but also look for understanding.

Cell Phone Policy In order to meet our goals, we have modified our school cell phone usage policy. We must minimize distractions if we are to maintain academic excellence. Cell phones will be prohibited during instruction time (unless directed by instructor) and “No Tech Zones”. No Tech Zones include all restrooms, PE locker rooms, front office, and library (during instruction time).
Cell Phone Policy Phones may be used before school, passing periods, during lunch, and after school only. Students caught using their phones during those unauthorized periods and zones will result in the phone being confiscated by staff or security personnel. Phones will be available for parent pickup afterschool.
Cell Phone Policy If students do not follow school policies, they will be considered to be insubordinate and appropriate discipline will result. Students are encouraged not to bring iPods, mp3 players, laser pointers, headsets, cameras or video recorders, any game playing device, or any personal electronic or digital music devices on campus. Lost or stolen cell phones or devices are the responsibility of the student. Bringing the item to school is at the students’ own risk for loss/theft. Desert Vista is not responsible for stolen or missing equipment and it is strongly encouraged that they not be brought to campus.
