Notification of Teacher Qualifications & Assessment Participation

The Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 gives parents/guardians the right to get information about professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teachers.  Upon request, the superintendent will give parents/guardians the following information about their child’s teacher:

  1. Whether the teacher has met state qualifications and licensing criteria for the grade and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction.
  2. Whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency or provisional teaching certificate.

  3. The graduate certification or degrees held by the teacher and field of discipline.  We will also, upon request, tell parents/guardians whether their child is being provided services by a paraprofessional and the qualification of such para. 

Parents may also request from the superintendent information regarding any state or district policy regarding student participation in any assessments administered by the district.  

Nebraska Education Profile (school data)

http://nep.education.ne.gov/

The NEP (Nebraska Education Profile) is the initial transformation of data from the State of the Schools Report and is intended to help inform the public and school officials about school district performance. The NEP is also intended to inform parents, community leaders, and policymakers about our education system and to provide data needed for sound decision making by education leaders. The NEP will continue to grow and change as data is added to the system.  As always your local school staff will be able to explain the data particular to your school and district.

Duct Tape Challenge Update

Students are starting to get into a routine because the AR points are climbing. Mr. McIntosh may still be feeling pretty safe, but we'll see. The goal this year is 3,500 points and students are at 665 points as a school.

Although class sizes and the length of books vary, many classes set their own goals as well as the school-wide goal so here is a breakdown of points earned by class:

K - 71 points
1st - 23 points
2nd - 13 points
3rd - 55 points
4th - 41 points
5th - 4 points
6th - 118 points
7th - 106 points
8th - 25 points
9th - 47 points
10th - 42 points
11th - 113 points
12th - 7 points

It will be exciting to see how colorful Mr. McIntosh is with the various duct tape if students end up reaching their school-wide goal. Happy reading!!
