2 JIEC Supply List We purchase all initial supplies. Parents do not need to send anything. In return, we request: – Parents pay fees – these cover your child’s materials – Parents send Boxtops for education – If parents want to contribute to classroom supply fund, donations welcomed. No backpacks needed or permitted. Purchase clothes that are in dress code If students destroy or disrespect supplies, they will need to furnish their own.

3 Who is James Irvin? Long-term Dade City resident who contributed greatly to the community – Volunteer – Child advocate – Child mentor – Known for honesty and conscientiousness

4 As an alternative school, what role do we play in our students’ education? We help students learn the skills they need for school, career, and life readiness. This means they must meet grade level expectations academically and socially. Students CANNOT graduate from James Irvin Education Center. But they can learn and practice the skills that will help them achieve their goals. We help students learn the skills they need for school, career, and life readiness.

8 What students need to do: Make the commitment to improve. All of us can learn to be better. Follow all directions, procedures, and rules. Be an active participant in setting and achieving goals. Work hard – one always gets what one puts into something – a lot of effort reaps results. Be willing to try and apply the lessons to your life. Be responsible, be respectful, be safe, and be a positive problem solver. When they make a mistake, admit it and learn from it. Believe in themselves enough to invest time and commitment to achieving and succeeding. Make the commitment to improve. All of us can learn to be better. Follow all directions, procedures, and rules.

13 Lessons learned here Transfer to Careers! Dress for Success: In the world of work, people dress more conservatively and in ways that are acceptable to customers, clients, and the general public. Individual styles are for private lives, not the work place. Respect, Responsibility, Safety, Problem Solving!!! Follow employer’s guidelines regarding cell phones and electronics. Here that means during breaks, lunches, or when the teacher announces that students may use them. At all other times, they should not be seen or heard. Do what the boss says; if one disagrees, speak to the boss calmly and professionally by stating the issue and how you would resolve it. This is done with respect.

14 Guidelines to be Successful Anywhere Dress for Success – A school is a place of employment for everyone here. We need to recognize and respect that. – Dress code needs to be followed. – Leave hats and hoods off unless it’s below 45 degrees. – Wear pants above the hip/rear end level toward the waist. Looking employable is more important than making a statement. – Always look neat and clean. – Wear modest clothing. Students should not need to be constantly reminded to comply with dress code requirements. School is not the place to make personality or belief fashion statements.
