    October 10, 2012:
    Today Ms. Gega, Ms. Greenwood, Mr. Gold, Mr. Carroll, and Mr. Pendola met. Today's meeting was about Skedula issues. Mr. Carroll mentioned that Mr.Burns was expecting a Skedual-generated Progress Report within the next week, and that Mr. Carroll could do that; but before he could do that, all teachers had to have grades entered for each student on Skedula. A couple of the teachers were having trouble getting their classes set up for the entering of grades, so a few of the more experienced teachers in the group helped.
    October 3, 2012:
    The team, Ms. Gega, Ms. Greenwood, Mr. Gold, and Mr. Carroll met and discussed revising our list of 20 students we'll be working with and paying special attention to. Mr. Carroll had been under the impression, that since eventually QR people would be looking at the movement of students on this list, that the kids on the list--regardless of IEP or former ELL status--these should be kids who will actually show up for the after school tutoring from 2:30--3:20 two days per week. Mr. Carroll had believed that the after school small group teaching experience was needed to shore up movement of students. After broaching this subject during a DIT meeting with Mr. Bolan, Mr. Carroll realized that regardless of attendance, ALL students in 801, 802, and 804 with IEPs plus students who were former and current ELLS should be part of the 20 being tacked. So this meeting was about making adjustments to said list. mr. Carroll also brought up how these 20 can be a separate class on Skedula, and that every time a grade was entered for one of the 20 in their regular clss--this data would also go to the special Skedula class created.

    September 19, 2012:
    This is the temporary home of the new 3rd Floor Teacher Team known as "Shakers and Makers." (Eventually, we will be packing up our bags, wishing a sad adieu to this wiki, and moving to Google.) Our team: A. Gold, A. Greenwood, A. Gega, and R. Carroll. (Mr. Carroll suggested during the meeting that the team be knows as "3 AGs and an Oddball," but clearer minds prevailed; ergo, "Shakers and Makers.") During this meeting we discussed our name, and the 11 students who had below a 2.5 in either ELA, Math, or both in 801, 802, and 804. We also discussed other students we share who have an IEP (we have 8 all total in those 3 classes) and that some of these students (the ones who actually attend school) should probably be added to our list of 20.

    May 10, 2012. Mr. Bauer, Mr. Carroll, Mr. Collado, and Mr. Echeiverria met for the 37 minutes. Mr. Carroll shared how terrible the CFN walk-through in his classroom that morning had been. Mr. Carroll, after speaking with Mr. Bolan about the walk-through, shared with the other team members what was expected during instruction.
    April 26, 2012. Mr. Bauer, Mr. Carroll, and Mr. Collado met for the 37 minutes. Again, Jason Hernandez was the major topic of conversation. We're all just sick of his bad behavior and apathy, and the mother was called--right there during the meeting--for yet another time. So far she's been ineffective. We really don't know what to do about him. Mr. Pendola, Mr. Golden, and Mr. Greggo have had discussions with Jason--but to no avail.

    We spoke of classes 821,803,805 and 831 and how students were performing. Class 821 has 34 students and had to be leveled out. We analyzed the state results ,and identified students who had improved and those who had not shown improvement. Thanks to Ms.Aleshin who had compiled the data.

    Are our classroom set up for student success?
    1) Furniture is set up to establish accountable talk
    2) First impression to observer is “This room is obviously a (subject) room”/resources are easily accessible
    3) Room is clean and free of boxes, old no longer used textbooks, organized for success
    4) Teacher lesson plan is available
    5) Note any needs (furniture, fixes, graffiti removal, etc)
    6) Student materials
    Everyone was emailed the pacing calendars for all grades. What should the expectation be for following the pacing guides?
    Tasks are embedded in pacing guide. If you saved it to desktop you can access link via internet.

    Welcome {OORS enhancements 2012.pdf} Welcome to School Safety!
    Sept 6, 2012
    Just a few highlights:
    Due to the incorporation of DASA, there will be a checklist for bias related categories
    If a bias classification is selected there will be a quick link to the chancellor’s regs & a guide for handling the incident
    If after the investigation it is determined that there was no bias, make sure that the description in the update is very specific
    The N21 classification is for Adult Education Students – this is for District 79 only (page 4)
    New locations have been added: private bus, car service, & permit location (CBO)
    For incidents in which the BSD needs to be notified, there is now a check-off to verify the notification of the Borough Safety Director – this is not in lieu of contacting the BSD, but in addition to contacting the BSD
    There is an update to the SOHO Gateway (Page 6)
    Suicidal ideation reports will now be unlocked & can be updated for the 10 day follow-up
    Suicidal ideations can now be entered for staff members

    March 15, 2012
    1) The Front Desk – Teachers are sending students to get passes for being late to class to the front desk. The front desk is only for late to school and not for late to class. Students that are late to school get late passes in the cafeteria during periods one and two. Starting period three a student that is late to school will obtain his/her late pass at the front desk. Teachers should not send students for late passes. If a student is late to school and they come to class without a pass, they should remain in class and the teacher reports the student to the dean. The dean will address the attendance with the attendance office and speak with the student about following proper procedures. Mr. Faraci will discuss the late pass procedure at the next UFT meeting. Mr. Bolan will address this concern in the next weekly bulletin. 2) Review of Cohort of Students that are not going to class - We have seen a reduction from this cohort of students for repeatedly roaming the halls. The initial use of hall sweeps helped reduce the number of students in the halls. Several students from this cohort are on suspension. We should continue with increased hall sweeps. The only days that appear to be challenged with students in the halls are when we have too many substitute teachers in the building. It was suggested that we should not announce on the PA when a dean or a teacher is absent. 3) Student Dismissal -We have had an increase in the number of non 217 students showing up at dismissal. There is a concern that some of these individual may be gang members. Level 3 would like an increase in administrative presence at dismissal. We should also consider having a workshop for parents to raise awareness of gang activity. 4) Dress Code – There has been an increase in the number of students that are wearing their hats in the building and wearing their pants very low. Some of these students have responded disrespectfully to teachers that are addressing their lack of compliance with the dress code. Deans will speak about this concern at the upcoming assemblies. 5) School Safety Agents in T- Building –There is an increase in the number of students hanging out in the T-Building. Level 3 stated that we would have an agent posted permanently in the T- building. 6) Miscellaneous Concerns – We need to schedule re-training for CPR and first-aid. We will schedule training after testing. Bathrooms are being left opened. Deans and school safety will check to see that bathrooms are locked. We need an increase of presence of school safety in stairwell five. Level 3 will review safety agent’s schedule. Attendees: Mr. Faraci, Mr. Bolan, Mr. Greggo, Mr. Golden, Agent Yip, Mr. Bradshaw, Mr. Schreier, Ms. Baxter, Ms. Alli, Ms. Martin and Mr. Gibbons.
