Teacher Times #9
November 26, 2012
Taking attendance on a daily basis for every period is a must.
A teacher’s scope of professional responsibility includes attendance.
A folder cannot be returned without attendance sheets properly filled out and signed.
If students are on a trip, at a cultural dinner etc. please don’t mark them absent, but rather R for released.
All teachers who take students on a trip MUST provide:
1. A copy of all permission slips given to AP of Student Support Monika Fisher.
2. A list of all students going on the trip to the AP of Student Support Monika Fisher.
Graduated disciplinary action will result for non-compliance with these important issues.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROJECT FOR HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE FACULTY
The Lehman College Now Program in collaboration with At Home In College and the NYC Writing Project will be offering a special PD project during spring 2013. One of the many issues and topics that arise as I meet with students and faculty in both educational institutions is the "educational gap" between high school and college expectations. Last year we addressed this issue in our Bridging the Space PD project. Due to the positive response of the participants from last year's project, we will be offering the seminars once again this spring. This is a great opportunity for high school faculty and college faculty to meet, discuss and develop strategies to help all our students make a successful transition from high school to college.
Below, you will find the application for 2013 BRIDGING THE SPACE: HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE EDUCATORS WORKING TOGETHER seminars.. Please share this application with any high school or college English, Humanities or Social Science faculty member that you believe would be interested in participating. Faculty are compensated with a $750 stipend for completion of the program.
Please remember that the deadline for both creating and completing your ARIS Inquiry Space and ATLAS Curriculum Maps from September to January is this FRIDAY NOVEMBER 30.
Do not forget to check your mailbox on a daily basis.
