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...

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...

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.

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.

Knowledge Inventory

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...

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.

The whole "do grant applications" thing is getting annoying. If the school or district wants teachers to do this extra stuff,...

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...

Additional agreement-

It's a new agreement that's being used by some in California. A group of districts joined together to create an additional privacy agreement based on a new law.

I take the time to develop an idea and write an application for "innovation."

General advice

1, The IABs are the same every time you give them.
2. They include all standards, so you find out what your students already know about what's coming at the end of the year.
3. Spread out the...

Students still need their own spaces.

My first foray into alternative work areas was standing tables that I made myself. None of my students self-selected the standing stations.

This sounds like an untenable situation for everyone. I'm sorry that it makes you feel like you are an outsider.
