WHAT’S UP WEDNESDAY SUPPORT AND ENRICHMENT FOR STUDENTS STARTS THIS WEEK

Thank you to all for signing up to provide support or enrichment for What’s Up Wednesday, starting this Wednesday, September 30.  As a reminder, What’s Up Wednesday programming is designed to personalize our instruction according to student need and interest, and has the following goals:

  • Provide time and opportunity for students to get the support they want and need in any of their academic classes.
  • Provide time and opportunity for students to engage in an enrichment activity, club, or other area of interest
  • Provide time and opportunity for students to receive SEL support, counseling and guidance curriculum, and college and career orientation
  • Provide additional time for all students to connect to adults, particularly in an informal environment

It is directly related to our CSP goals and strategies, particularly:

Culture of Achievement
  • By June, we will increase the student satisfaction – Index from 80.4% to 85%.
  • Sub-Goal 1: Increase the percentage of students who feel loved from 49% to 59% by June.
  • Sub-Goal 2: Increase the percentage of students who feel prepared from 59% to 69% by June.
  • Sub-Goal 3: Increase the percentage of students who feel connected to at least one teacher and to school

Academics
  • Stakeholders will be able to increase ALL students’ academic performance (ELA/MATH) by 5% as measured by various instructional assessments by June 2021.
  • Stakeholders will be able to increase ELL Students’ level of academic performance (ELA/MATH) by 7% as measured by various instructional assessments by June 2021. This will decrease the achievement gap between ELLs and Mainstream.
  • Stakeholders will be able to increase SPED Students’ level of academic performance (ELA/MATH) by 7% as measured by various instructional assessments by June 2021. This will decrease the achievement gap between SPED and Mainstream.
  • Stakeholders will be able to increase our Graduation rate to 82% by August 2021 from 79% in SY 19-20

WUW sessions are different from the regular scheduled classes in that:

  • There are no grades, no assessments, no homework for students
  • While we will take attendance to determine what level of services are being provided, and what level of engagement there is,  attendance will not “count” against students
  • A lesson plan or curriculum  is not required for the sessions on Wednesday, the support/intervention session is supposed to be set it up as support, for students to come in, ask questions, get their work looked at, work on assignments with their teachers and classmates, and even engage in one on one conversations with the teachers.  This could be done in a break out room if desired.
  • For the enrichment sessions  a lesson plan is not required, it is a time to engage in a fun activity that you enjoy and want to share with students, as if you were engaging in that activity outside of school hours.
  • If it is a counseling or therapeutic activity, it would follow normal guidelines for these activities.
  • If it is a sports related activity, it would look like an informal coaching clinic, meeting with team members, or discussion or review of key sports skills, or review of games and strategy on video.
  • The sessions on Wednesday are not formally observed, but the admin team would love to visit when possible.  We will be engaged as well, as many  of us are offering enrichment/support classes as well as an opportunity to engage further and deepen relationships with students.
  • There will be opportunity for flexibility if a students’ needs change.   If there is a student that you need to work with and they are assigned to go to another educator’s  class, you can request  that student to come work with you. You would just share the link with the student to get to your class. The only thing we ask is that you communicate with  the teacher who they are supposed to be with and communicate that they are working with you during that particular Wednesday.

Thank you again to all for your creativity and commitment to our students overall development.  We also invite our parents to visit and join us during What’s Up Wednesday!



CHEC REOPEN FOCUS GROUP STARTS UP

We are still awaiting further specific guidance on the timetable for hybrid in-person/virtual learning.  While we are waiting this guidance, it is important to plan for the logistics and design of the hybrid in person model, whether it happens in November, or later in the year.   As mentioned in last week’s bulletin, CHEC will serve as one of five simulation sites, where classrooms and hallways will be set up by DCPS operations as models for what to expect when we move to hybrid instruction.  These models will be visited by school leaders and staff from around the district.

In addition, it is important to remember the learning gaps and socio emotional trauma that that are occurring due to students being out of school.  Our most vulnerable students, whether they are ELL, special needs, in transition, or living in difficult situations where there is limited adult supervision, are those who have the least opportunity to benefit from virtual instruction.  DCPS is providing for funded opportunities for schools to innovate and pilot limited and specific in person opportunities for students, with teachers who are willing and able to engage. Each school will be creating a proposal for this transitions.  Some examples are:

  • Outdoor learning on the soccer field or basketball court – sports or physical  activities socially distanced
  • Outdoor learning on the field with  a teacher  or counselor – reading club, science investigation/lab, demonstration
  • Outdoor teambuilding, counseling,  or “ropes course” activities with a teacher, counselor, or other staff member
  • Socially distanced counseling sessions
  • Socially distanced field trips to the National Zoo, museums that are open, or other community sites
  • Socially distanced community service
  • Socially distanced Art or Music projects – an outdoor performance or outdoor mural
  • Socially distanced Photo excursions
  • Other ideas or options!

At our Reopen Focus Group on Wednesday at 3:00 pm, we will engage in brainstorming and suggestions on what to include in our proposal.  Please join on TEAMS! An invitation will be sent to all!


TECH TIPS

Here are some new tech tips regarding Microsoft Teams.  Please also our daily CHEC TECH TIPS, and contribute new tools as you find them!

Great news – Microsoft has just rolled out 7x7 so you can see up to 49 students in Teams.  Here is the link to the document on how to access the new meeting features in Teams.

Once recognized, teachers  get an email with your recognition story and we’ll celebrate them! Last year our very own Ms. Ramirez won the Life-Changing Teacher Award and a $5000 cash award!

CHEC RECEIVES GRANT TO CONTINUE WHOLE SCHOOL SUPPORT FROM RESTORATIVE DC

Thanks to the proposal written by our fabulous Dean Team and the Development Office, our school has been granted continued whole school support through Restorative DC’s Restorative Justice Technical Assistance for the SY 2020.  This means that we will receive training, consultation, access to workshops, and support to continue our work in Restorative Justice.  If you would like to get involved with our RJ committee, please see any member of the Dean Team, or Pankaj Rayamajhi.


INSTRUCTION:
ONE YEAR AGO THIS WEEK - MUSIC CLASS WITH MR. NAVAS
Progress Reports
Progress Reports are due on October 6 for all students.  Please make sure you are following the grading weights and procedures as explained at pre-service.  If you have any questions, or need assistance in putting grades in ASPEN, please see your SLC Administrator, or our Grade Manager, Roman Smith.



Living through History
This week we are continuing with Living Through History, with the creation of artifacts and products in all content classes.  It is exciting to see how our students are documenting their journey through this moment in time.  This week, the week of September 28, we will have lessons in Advisory to begin the curation and reflection on products, in preparation for putting them in the Time Capsule.  The links to the lessons and the powerpoints to be used have been shared with you by your SLC.   The Living Through History GRASPS can be found through this link, and you can see what each grade level and subject area are contributing to the project.  The products and projects different teachers have designed are compelling and engaging, and aligned to our key standards as well.  

Please see below updates from DCPS on LTH

Family Engagement
  • DCPS families are an integral part of this Cornerstone.  We have created several opportunities for families to engage by creating their own artifacts and contributing their individual perspective to this project that marks this unique time in our lives. Using this link you will find activities that can be shared with your families.

Time Capsule Submission
  • Time capsules are submission dates have been extended to October 16th to allow additional time for schools who may need it. Once your students have completed the full Cornerstone instructions for submissions can be found using the links below.
  • Grades 6-12 submission Instructions

Virtual Showcase
  • Save the Date: The LTH Virtual Showcase will take place on October 28th, 2020 at 5pm.  Details regarding this event will be shared early next month.

LTH Notebooks
  • Some of the LTH Cornerstone Lessons reference student activities in the LTH OneNote. The Living Through History Cornerstone OneNote can be found in the OTL Curriculum Course Companion on SharePoint. These items can be added directly into your Class Notebook used with Canvas or with your students.

Take Action Lesson Update (SECONDARY TEACHERS ONLY)
  • Secondary Educators, please refer to email sent on September 11th that details out instructions on how to replace the necessary files in the Take Action lessons.  After replacing the files, please complete the quick survey referenced in the email as well.

Connect student learning with a NEW OPPORTUNITY:
Virtual Field Trip: Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum:
Grades: 1-8  

What does Air & Space have to do with pandemics and protests?  Explore connections between student experiences at home during the COVID-19 pandemic and astronaut experiences during space exploration.
  • Content Deep-Dive: Learn about how astronauts experience quarantine and isolation during long term space travel and ways that NASA mitigates the associated biological and psychological impacts.
  • Hands-on Activities: Using astronaut hygiene and personal preference kits as models, students create and justify their own COVID-19 pandemic kits.
  • Artifact Immersion: Items are highlighted from our collection that were used by astronauts for hygiene and during quarantine and how this has changed over time.
  • Class-wide activity: The class will engage in a virtual breakout room that explores what satellites are teaching us about human impact on the environment during stay at home orders.

For more information and registration: https://airandspace.si.edu/virtual-field-trips



Now that we are moving fully into content, we should focus on utilizing our newly learned “best practices” in virtual instruction.  Some of these are very similar to live instruction, just implemented differently:

  • Please continue with SEL openers, to continue to build community!
  • Please be sure to have a clear objective, unwrapped from a standard, that is shown visually and stated orally, in the beginning of the lesson, but available to be viewed throughout the lesson as needed.
  • Take advantage of technology to have visual and audio representations of content simultaneously – the immersive reader function on TEAMS works on all text, and even on the chat. Subtitles are also available, and this reaches students who need visual in addition to audio.
  • Continue to encourage students to come on camera, if only when they speak.  Virtual equity sticks work in encouraging all voices of students! The CANVAS Badges for participation on camera also help!
  • The Discussion function on CANVAS is a great tool to encourage academic discourse and accountable talk!

As you discover new and effective tips and ideas, please continue to share them! We will publish them in our CHEC TECH TIPS, and in this section of the Bulletin

Digital Citizenship Lessons: DCPS is requiring all students to receive three specific Digital Citizenship lessons before October 2, 2020. These lessons will be given in Advisory/PLT.  You will receive the lesson plans and guidance on how to administer the lessons in your SLC.

What’s Up Wednesday is coming soon! Thank you to all for signing up to share an enriching activity or academic or socio emotional support! We have found a software that has allowed us to create our own internal schedule.  In Advisory this coming week, we will provide students with an online format to register for the classes they want and need. Advisors will receive a list of students who need an academic intervention. Based on current progress with scheduling, barring any obstacles or glitches:

High School and Middle School will both start September 30.



INSTRUCTIONAL CALENDAR

The Instructional Calendar is a living document that houses all the major curricular requirements, assessments, and schoolwide events. The Instructional Calendar is complete for the moment, however changes may be made and will be noted.  If you have any requests for additions to the Instructional Calendar, please contact Mr. Magee, peter.magee@k12.dc.gov, or your SLC Administrator.




IMPACT UPDATES

You have all received the FAQ’s of the adjustments of Impact this year.  As a Summary:

  • There will be no IVA for teachers this year
  • There will be no student surveys this year
  • There will be EP observations for teachers this year, only 2 instead of 3.  Observations for cycle 1 will begin on November 2nd, and every teacher will receive at least one informal observation before that date.
  • We will have focus groups to discuss the new adjusted EP Rubric in detail when it is finalized by DCPS. Administrators and LEAP Leaders will continue calibrating for observations in classes this week, so please welcome observers to your classes.  If you would like to participate in a calibrating observation, please let your SLC Administrator or M. Tukeva know via email.
  • There will be TAS for Teachers this year, however it will be expanded to allow for SEL or engagement goals as well as academic goals, and it will allow for shorter cycles, and mid-year revisions. TAS guidelines will be provided this week, and we will have a schoolwide meeting on IMPACT and TAS on Wednesday, October 7.
  • The CSC rubric will be adjusted to add a sixth component for teachers teaching virtually, CSC 6. Instead of a focus group, in order to provide an opportunity for all to give feedback, we will provide a link to provide feedback on the CSC rubric during our schoolwide Impact Meeting on October 7.
  • Non-teachers will receive adjusted expectations and rubrics will be applied accordingly, to reflect adjusted responsibilities.

Ms. Carino has been at CHEC for four years, and has organized and implemented activities and events to support our young women in their leadership development, as well as served as a liaison with partners providing food and resources to our families.

Please congratulate Ms. Ferguson and Ms. Carino on their new roles!



ACADEMIC LEADERSHIP TEAM

The ALT team is a team of educators charged with the design and implementation of our mission aligned Comprehensive School Plan. The Team is composed of all LEAP leaders, Department Chairs, Administrative Team Members, and any interested educator or staff member. We seek to involve all perspectives and voices.   All staff members are invited to attend any or all meetings.  Our work is in the four domains of the CSP – Shared Leadership, Engagement, Culture of Achievement, and Academics. The first Leadership Team Meeting took place on Friday, September 11.  The notes can be found in the Notebook section of the CHEC Team site.  Meetings will be held every two weeks, rotating between Friday mornings at 7:30 am, and Tuesday afternoon’s at 4:00 pm.  The next meeting will be Friday, October 9 at 11:00 am (Parent Teacher Conference Day). At this meeting we will continue work on the CSP action steps.

The first meeting will be Thursday, October 1st.  The Agenda for this month’s meeting will focus on SEL engagement strategies for virtual learning.    All meetings are posted in the Instructional Calendar.
 
 


PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
This is a new section of our Bulletin, and within a few weeks it will be populated with a calendar of opportunities.   Professional Development and learning is a priority for all of us, and we are all on a new learning curve.  If you would like to get involved in either providing or receiving specific professional development, we look forward to getting your feedback to our PD Survey, which will be coming out within the next two weeks.  We are able to compensate both those who provide, and those who attend professional development outside of school hours or in lieu of planning periods.

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE DC OFFICE OF THE STATE SUPERINTENDENT OF EDUCATION (OSSE)

Good Day CHEC Educators,

The Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) is collaborating with the Department of Behavioral Health (DBH) to monitor compliance with the mandatory youth behavioral health training for educators. DBH provides this youth behavioral health training at https://supportdcyouth.kognito.com District law mandates that all public and public charter school teachers and principals complete a behavioral health training once every two years (D.C. Law 14-56; DC Official Code § 7-1131.17(b)(1)).

Those who completed the trainings in calendar year 2020 do not need to retake the youth mental health trainings this fall. However, all new and returning building administrators and teachers who completed prior to January 1, 2020 must complete the 3 required modules by December 11, 2020. This calendar year will reset the compliance cycle so that all DC administrators and teachers will be required to complete on the same two-year cycle moving forward. Compliance tracking is the responsibility of building administrators.

The attached flyers for Teachers and for school Admin provide detailed information about this requirement, how to access the trainings and monthly completion status reports for your employees.



LINCOLN LIBRARY UPDATE: HISPANIC & LATINX HERITAGE MONTH RESOURCES

As we continue our celebration and recognition of Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month, middle school staff can find lessons, influential figures graphics, author visits, speakers & organizations, digital collection videos, and more here. Other website links can be found here. Contact your librarian for collaboration ideas or to help schedule virtual visitors.

Digital Library Collections
September is Library Card Sign Up Month! Ensure your students have access to their public and school libraries by scheduling a visit to class by Ms. Falkenberg or a Mt. Pleasant librarian. Video tutorials for the multiple digital library platforms can be found here.

Digital Citizenship
September 23rd concluded the required digital citizenship lessons - Lincoln teachers, make sure you fill out this form for district tracking purposes once you've completed implementing the 3 lessons.  Digital citizenship is an important element of online learning and communication. Common Sense Media offers additional lessons, resources, and tips to further media literacy skills and habits. Need help integrating media literacy into your research and content lessons?

ACCESS for ELL’s, ELLEVATION, and English Language Learners

Last year’s ACCESS testing for ELL’s was interrupted by the COVID 19 shut down, however some students were able to finish all or part of the assessment.  As of September 29, these results will be on Ellevation.  Please check ELLEVATION for your students, and you will find personalized activities aligned to their language needs, by domain.

As distance learning becomes the new norm for students across the country, a lot of families are playing an increased role in the day-to-day education of their child(ren).
The home-school connections added to the Ellevation Distance Learning activities allow educators to engage family members to share in the learning process.



Check out this just released instructional activity that allows multilingual learners to benefit from educational opportunities at home.

Sincerely,
Your Ellevation Team
THE DEAN TEAM:
TEACHER SPOTLIGHT:

Today the spotlight shines on two fantastic teachers Ms. Mya Ferguson and Ms. Gabriela Ramirez!

Ms. Ferguson is a 9-12th grade Health and English teacher. She has also impacted the lives of many students within her ten years of service at CHEC. Ms. Ferguson shared the following when asked What has been the impact of using restorative practices this school year, "Restorative practices helps me build relationships with students even in the virtual setting. Students have commented they feel comfortable in my class. I believe students feeling comfortable helps them learn and increases their willingness to persevere.

Ms. Ramirez is a 7th grade Spanish Language teacher. She has impacted the lives of many students within her four years of service at CHEC. Ms. Ramirez shared the following when asked What has been the impact of using restorative practices this school year. "Using Restorative Justice practices during virtual learning has helped me connect with my students. We have learned together to be vulnerable with each other, and through this process, we have found out that we have more things in common than we thought, especially because we all come from different backgrounds. This is why we tend to assume our experiences are completely different too, and then realize we have had very similar struggles. We have learned to communicate better and admit whenever we are wrong, which I think is the foundation of our teacher-student relationship." Thank you, Ms. Ramirez, for your commitment to your students and team.

Everyone, please shine your light on Ms. Ferguson and Ms. Ramirez this week!
