Intent These Standards are not intended to be new names for old ways of doing business. They are a call to take the next step. It is time for states to work together to build on lessons learned from two decades of standards based reforms. It is time to recognize that standards are not just promises to our children, but promises we intend to keep. — CCSS (2010, p.5)

Teachers are asked to take at least a half day off as subs cannot be secured for less than a half day. Due to a very limited Loss of Planning budget, LOP will only be paid in the event of emergencies and at the discretion of the Principal. Teachers are asked to arrange to trade coverage for each other within their departments when less than a half day of coverage is needed. The teacher needing coverage is to notify the Substitute Coordinator (see policy for procedure).

Requesting a Substitute:

Requesting a Substitute Manuela Quevedo is our Substitute Coordinator Please call her at 225-4313 well in advance of your absence whether or not you need a substitute. ( NOTE: Please DO NOT email or leave notes on Substitute Coordinator ’ s desk as these methods do not allow ample time to receive the message and arrange for the substitute.

Submit an emergency lesson plan to Manuela by Friday, August 15 th to keep on file.

Student Schedule Change Policy:

Student Schedule Change Policy Take attendance in Mojave, not from hard copy. Check Mojave rosters carefully every class period, every day! Do not send students out of your class to the counseling office . Students can go to counseling office before or after school or during lunch to make an appointment. If a student is not on your Mojave roster, send them to the office. Students on your roster MUST STAY IN CLASS UNTIL THEIR SCHEDULE IS CHANGED . If you feel a student is misplaced, email Alma . If a student is in your class, but not on your roster, send the student to the office to pick up an updated schedule. A schedule change is not an intervention – check policy.
