Jackson Data Talk August 25th:
Have you recently received your Milestones Scores and don't have a clear understanding of what all the numbers really mean? Have you heard our CCRPI score but really don't understand how we arrived at it or what the school can do to help increase it? If you have any questions about the DATA the helps define Jackson in the eyes of the state, district and community, please join me on August 25th of my principal's coffee on Jackson's data. We all agree that our students are more than test scores and that Jackson is more than a number, but it's importation to understand the framework in which we operate.
Are you Anti-Social??
Our students are growing up in a time of social media and we are doing our best to celebrate our successes yet balance the protection of our students. Each child at Jackson was sent a Media Release form in the APS student handbook. In order for teachers, PTA and the administration to use your child's image in outside of the building communications, permission must be obtained. While considering if you would like to provide this permission, know that we are using the professional guidelines as outlined at www.commonsensemedia.org/educators and www.webwise.ie/teachers/posting-pictures-to-your-schools-website-2/
In short, here are the bullet pointed guidelines.
We are making every effort to ensure that your child's needs are met and celebrate the accomplishments that they achieve, as well as celebrating our school's successes.
Since we are back at dual campuses, there have been some changes to carpool. At Main Campus, carpool will take place on the side entrance of the building. Please do not drop off students at the front entrance of the building, we reserve this space for bus drop-off.
