7-Report on School Safety Plan
Haven’t meet this year, but keeping the same from last year. Faculty will be trained on digital citizenship. Every student is being trained on this in STEM. There are no monthly messages as of now, but there will be. We became qualified to be a “common sense” school. We will do 2 parent information sheets for digital citizenship.
Possible parent ideas: Bitmoji classroom and a flipgrid
We have screeners to protect students on the internet. Right now we are using contentkeeper.
Social/Emotional Learning. Lots of drama on students from COVID and having a lot of anxiety. We had a claiming space. We are going to start using Second Steps in the classrooms.
We will be staring SecondSteps in the next few weeks. Teacher training on Monday
