The administrators are working through a focused plan for the PD (Professional Development).

Barry spoke about students needing a third math credit for graduation with a need for more real-life math applications. Modeling Our World With Mathematics will provide a new course offering at the HS. Teacher Paula Fitzpatrick will be qualified to teach the class this fall.
Barry lead the board in discussion about returning students to a classroom and the WAC (WA Administrative Code) wording of the procedure. With the work and training that is being done in the district currently, Barry feels that classroom behaviors are being addressed and better understood. With this in place the administrators have the authority to determine when students return to the classroom after an exclusion.
Administrators have been reaching out to other districts about learning PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Systems) and discipline rights and practices. Teaching kids behavior is an important part of education for all buildings and administrators. Discipline and consequences are being discussed proactively with the most challenging students. The elementary school is working with a behavioral consultant to design effective plans for challenging students.
