Si5rl- 6.23 continutiy - educational time - not completely we are in compliance based on sba - we the time spend on the test - i beleive efucational time 8 morning three horus and back home - so i would like to propose analysis to look at how to utilize that time for our students with standaridze testing - keepiung them home is not on opiotn we shouold be supporting and is there other ways ithat could be done - farily lar5ge chunk of educational time for. Logistical challegne - so that is where my question came done.
Nacy - not in compliance wfor the time spend with federal and state
Siri -not disrupt educati9onal time
Nancy - saying that taking the test requird by the state]siri - taking the test - jr tooik the test - freshmen sopmore and seiros stayed home for four ydays in the row - sopmore -the other stayed home - that is te piece we need to lookat and confirm making use of our student time - misse classes - are there other ways to ensure to offer other aloternatives
Nancy - why in the world taking the test at the same time]
Traci - histrcila y hs testing scheduels that have finals or state tesing will do groups of students who are nt schedule in class - this was challenging the amount o f indiudal proctoring - the computer use for testing time id not anticipate the impact of the testing schedules that they had - we are int eh middle of doing that analysi make improvements ofr next eyar - just last week we had level meetings good portion doign sba besting debrief what all of the issues we are experiencing appropraly plann for next yea r- our intent is not to ahve student going to be testing ot have them engaged in some ikind of o meaningufl instructional time - this year it was beyond what is as in past years]Nancy - having neighboring sen and jr this year - those jr are done with schoolo with jur and they don't have to be ther e- this idea get done one whole week early so many classes taking by jr and senior also didn't add up - w are losing days
Jackie use to et out earlier
Traci - challenge has become in mixed grade - hwo do you deal with finals - hwo do you keep studetns engaged - we are looking at this - what are other district doing and the anaylsis is already underway - so we can plan appropaltey for next year - ]
Jackie -t aking test how did it go int he elmetnary school - the impact it had there - ]
Mark - one concern also - as long looing at analysis - all this missed time in one semester and teacher mentioned to me student covered much more mateiral in firt semester an missed second semetser - need to balance it
raci - you are right - exchange e-mails on that
Traci - know what testing look this year better plan how to ensure equitable semester time -
Mark - talk abut end of the shcool yar x day minus four or five turn in bokds computer ahead of time - absurd -
Nancy - I have had that concern - all design for the convenience of whoever is checking in to ensure w are doing 180 days of education
Traci - logistics of turnign laopt and books is being discuss this year and how do we include that aspect
Nancy not getting dipomas when they graduat e-
Nancy office staff is still working - seems to me that if we don't ned thigns turned in days in advance just gotten to be out of control - brining this up when my kids graduated
Traci - we will take a look at ti and see what we can do to make it better - ]Nancy - maybe it needs to be done after school it out - We want to minimie it as much a spossible - have to be a what will work and reasonable and what
Nancy - graqduation is early start to make the change
traci - that aspect bt then so there is more to it - has improved last week and three days of school -
Mark wend is a 1/2 day - \
Traci - apprciate
Jckie - not a new phenonom
Mark - it has been institutionaliezd -
Traci - we will take a good hard look at it and will be following up with yu - prior to the next time we do el-6\
sir - question alon suspension - see an increase mitigating and changing suspensions - increase in two days or less curious what those students are being suspended for - greater anaysis - really use suspension expulsioin as a last option - and st it up
Nanyc my chart on page 11 El-6
Trtaci reviewed suspensions - in planin for aug time with amd to lok at data - alked this past year reduce reliance on suspension - proving to be true at hs level based on this data and taking it to the next step of being clear when is alternative is appropriate and when might suspension be approrpaite - Matt Gillinghma clarieid in the student handbook in most cases suspsension isn[t what happnes in the fir5st ofense - might be after repeated offense. we are ensuring more consistency across.
Mark - start exteding inhouse suspension
Traci - impelmented at the hs believe all ms had the ability to do that and follow up on that and based on space for those students and based on stafing - we will loop back and see if we do aqhve the ability for all ms to rely on inhouse as an topion just liek the hs do.
Mark - first time ofenses are to be treated diferently - progressive nature and depending on the severity a first offence could be suspension bu t typically oter coinsequences are usedfor first or second ofence and more severe offense - the owrk matt did with the discipien committee maeks that even leare - used to bein the actual document - first offence a range of things and seonc offence - wthe way wording makes i tmuch cleare thate is a progressive mature - kidns of things mentioning do annual training on and conversiton with principal - what does our data show and consistency interprting those policy documents.
Siir - see the data broken out by racial breakdown - becuae from the requitable dapplying our p0olicies - i would like to see the data.
Jackie - hot button aroudn the country how discip0line
Traci - w8ill follow - up on that also XXXXX
