IMPORTANT! 2014-2015 Elementary Updates

Elementary Specials
On April 11, 2014 the Governing Board voted unanimously to adopt a modified schedule for K-5 elementary schools that includes a Wednesday early release. This decision was made after the following data was provided to the Board:
  • 15 out of 19 elementary school principals prefer the early release Wednesday to a shortened schedule (9 a.m.- 3:10 p.m.) every day.
  • With a 60% response rate of all elementary teachers in K-5 schools, 71% (263) of teachers prefer the early release Wednesday option.
  • Of the 74 parent group leaders who responded, 44% prefer the early release Wednesday option while 56% prefer the shortened day option.

This decision is to accommodate the loss of half of the specials (art, music, PE) in elementary schools due to the reduction of the M & O override.  Next year, the early release time will be at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesdays. Read Full Update

A message from the Library
 

 NEW resources for your students
 
These resources are always available on your school library website or they can be accessed directly via the links in this email.

For students in grades K-12
 
 
Bookshare is an accessible online library for people with print disabilities. It is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs.
 
Bookshare books are available only for students with a print disability and an IEP or 504 Plan. Students will be set up with Bookshare by their special education teachers.
 
The online library includes just about every book our student would want to read, everything from  Fault in Our Stars to Diary of a Wimpy Kid. The library also includes textbooks.
 
Contact your special education teachers for information about how to help your students access Bookshare. You may also find help on the SUSD Assistive Technology website. http://at.susd.schoolfusion.us
 
The link is available without going through the library pages, but it will be on our list of audiobooks just in case someone doesn’t hear about it from another source.

For students in grades K-5
 
 
Storyline is sponsored by the Screen Actors Guild Foundation and offers some top-notch ebook content. Each book begins with a cameo with the SAG reader, but moves quickly to what we consider traditional ebook format. All books are closed captioned

Cherokee is going "Green!"

In an attempt to go “green”, we will not be sending home individual vendor flyers in backpacks.  These will be included on the Cherokee website and in the front office.   In the future, we will announce what new flyers are available in the office.

Thank you,

The Cherokee Office Staff
