Hi, do students that had DI preschool placement rather than start general Ed kindergarten automatically move on to 7th grade because they turn 12, even if they are currently in 5th grade DI? I don't see how skipping 6th grade at elementary school and being moved up to 7th grade Jr High for a special needs kiddo is helpful. I am not talking about the 6th graders going into Jr. High. I am referring to being held back and then being skipped forward. I am very confused regarding age placement vs academic need.
"Students will still have access to library books and materials the same way they do now," said district spokesman Brian Coddington, but will be overseen by classroom teachers."
Uh, no they won't. It is a lie and a very blatant lie.
Why don't you eliminate school nurses and keep their offices open and provide students with access to meds? How about emptying administrative offices and keeping them open and having teachers operate them? Surely this would be an awesome idea. Better yet....why don't you actually see what librarians do and why they are needed. I quite sure that administrative positions could be cut to save money.
The school bus was 40 Minutes late to pick up the students from bus stop 159 today. It was 6° with a wind chill warning, and there were very small children with no gloves in properly dressed at the bus stop. This is unacceptable. And dangerous. I’ll fix it late minutes late to pick up the students from bus stop 159 today. It was 6° with a wind chill warning, and there were very small children improperly dressed with no gloves at the bus stop. This is unacceptable and dangerous. What can be done so the students don’t get frostbite?
I have a question; why when it is 15° we are having our Students lineup outside of school before school starts, why couldn’t they lined them up inside the gym or something? It’s just like why aren’t students being bus to school a few blocks away as well ? The past few years on social media thousands of people have been out raged over parents making their kids walk to school in harsh conditions but why do we make them walk to school because there are no buses and why do we make them stand out side of school before class starts when it’s below 25°? In today’s age we live in a world where paranoia is more important than safety; have you watch the news, you see kids getting up ducted on their way to school or you get kids slipping and falling on ice on the playground why can’t we take action and to prevent this?
I understand you are supporting a charter school. This one was organized by one of your past administrators. If that is true could you please let me know which charter school it is. I am the program chair of the local Spokane Area Retired Educators Association and I would love to have this person speak at our next general meeting.
I am wondering about the need that Spokane is experiencing for certified English as a Second Language teachers? I have just graduated Eastern and I am looking into getting my Masters in Teaching with an emphasis on K-12 English Language Learners, and I am going to be looking for employment for this upcoming school year. I am currently teaching K-5 Spanish at an Elementary school in my current city.
