electronic options

If they word process their writing, they could use Paper Rater (paperrater.com). Use just the free part of Paper Rater, and show an example.

As OPs mentioned, I would also pare down their focus...

Same district-

I didn't read the attachment, so I may be whistling in the wind.

If they call you on it, just say you thought it was a district agreement.

This is a hard one.

I haven't seen a program that works. It's both a community and school culture thing.

I haven't used it yet, but I know there will come a day when I will need to. It's more geared toward older...

Phased out years ago

If teachers have a printer, it's one they purchased themselves, or it's an old one that's been well taken care of. Teachers buy their own cartridges, or they get one toner per year for old school...

Education is not immune from the

pecking order. I know that's an old term, but it sadly reflects how some teachers are treated. I'm sure it doesn't help, but it sounds like the lead teacher and some others are afraid. They've built...

In CA

Response to Intervention, RTI, is mandated. Even when there is no support staff, we are required to show that we are targeting these students' specific deficits.

Maybe you can make your warm-up...

Definitely agree with all41 who-

said it better than me.



Our district has had SPED teachers leave to another district because of lack of support all the way up the chain.

Teachers go through situations like yours, and...

How can they force you?

-unless they lie, fill out the paperwork, and pay for it.

If you have a union, check with them about placement if you choose not to renew.

The real problem is continued employment. Is there...

Love your description!

Random thoughts-

I would bet this happens to teachers often with "trauma informed teaching," SEL, PBIS...

Asking may be common, but...

I agree with OPs about FERPA issues.

It's clear that the professor doesn't support current educators, and one wonders if s/he has kept up with educational privacy laws.

The professor musts have...

turn it back on pot-stirrer

Yuck! I'm so sorry you're dealing with this. I'm sure the other teachers and the students are stressed by it, too.

One idea: Let admin know. Then get all other teachers together. Start focusing on...

And assessments, including those that require one-on-one.

And a combo class with separate curricula for each grade.

And documenting IEP implementation.

And PBIS.

Don't know legal parameters of disability

I don't know if the doctor could write that type of note. The real question is- What would actually be helpful? We know that out of control children won't refrain from violent behaviors because of a...

Keep procedural focus

If anything, classes with difficult behaviors need more structure, not less.

I like your approach of success for one helps all.

Stick to your guns on warnings and then escalating consequences.

It sounds like you want to know what skills/knowledge the student has.


What about using the free version of Moby Max? You can start him with placement tests in subjects you choose. It will give...

PBIS is damaging in today's climate.

The original idea of PBIS was to treat behaviors with an RTI model.

Check the data; apply an intervention; adjust by repeating the steps.

What happened in implementation is the problem. The...

school-wide

Our admin is having students set goals for a school-wide incentive plan.

I have never done rewards daily. I use a gamified class management system. Students earn XP (experience points).

I feel ya-

I almost didn't do this one, but the paperwork wasn't as bad as some.

Need parents

These kind of laws will only be fixed if parents scream, loudly, about their children's safety.

Concern for teachers won't do it. (We signed up for this, after all.:rolleyes:) Either some poor...

different possibilities-

1. mismanaged a situation and was told resign or else
2. ran afoul of some board member
3. let go for someone's relative and left in embarrassment
4. burned out (just like teachers do sometimes)...
