Hello, everyone. Lapeer East HS has 63 copies of Chris Tovani's "Do I Really Have to Teach Reading? Content Comprehension Grades 6-12." These books are in great shape,softcover, and 120 pages. The publish date is 2004. This is a great staff development book--easy to read and put to use.
We paid $16 per book but you can have them for far less.

Please help MASSP's new alternative education liaison, Ken Willison, gain a clearer understanding of who among us has alternative education responsibilities or interests. If you have any duties in your district related to alternative education ... or if you just have a strong interest in alternative education issues ... please let Ken know who you are. If you prefer not to post to the internet, please feel free to send an email to him at email@example.com
Also, if you haven't done so already … why not join the new Alternative Education group? While not much has been posted there yet, we hope to get the ball rolling soon and would love to have all interested parties participate.
We would like to target at-risk students with a low commitment mentor program intending to reduce drop-out, failure and attendance rates. I am thinking that phone calls home when a student misses school, the normal good morning greetings, and such. I am looking for any suggestions.
How often do you get on this site? When you do, what do you want to be able to learn, find and or do? Let me know, and I will see what I can do to help. Doni Pummell Region 2 Board Member! It is a goal of the board to make this site better and better for YOU! So what can I do? ( for YOU)
Can anyone provide a sample letter to parents\students announcing availability of the Career Readiness Certificate?
Students took the 3 WorkKeys components needed to qualify for a National Career Readiness Certificate as part of the MME. The results of those tests are now available. OEAA has provided schools with a 6 page PDF of instructions telling students how to log in and register so that they can receive a copy of their certificate, but we would like to send a cover letter to students and parents along with that PDF. Does anyone have a copy of such a letter that they would be willing to share?
I am looking for embedded ELA in any CTE courses. Please post contact information OR Units/lesson plans used in CTE programs.

Jackson County is currently exploring solutions to provide on-line or integrated student assistance in core curriculum areas.
The parameters for the solutions we are exploring are:
a. meet the MMC on-line requirement
b. be engaging for the student
c. allow for credit recovery
d. allow for tutorial preparation / catch-up
e. allow for "first time" option for receiving credit
f. be cost-effective for a countywide purchase
g. be compatible with all operating systems
h. meet Michigan Merit Curriculum standards
My questions are:
1. Does your district currently have a solution in place to address these needs? (If done as an ISD/RESD/RESA or other regional entity please indicate in your response.)
2. If so, what solution(s) are you using?
I am looking for career centers who utilize online registration and are willing to share their methods and tools.
We are currently looking at the way our discipline system is being implemented and is it really working? Are detentions and suspensions changing behavior? Just wanted opinions on positive behavior supports, in-school suspension, etc. What is working for you? Thanks for your input and assistance.

We are doing some preliminary investigating and I could use some information from any of you who have the experience in implementing trimesters. Questions:
How long have you had it in place?
Do you see a positive correlation to academic achievement?
Has it cost you ($$-wise)and if yes, when (what year) did the cost increase become most apparent?
Have any of you who have gone to trimesters then gone back to semesters?
How has the community "bought in"?
Your overall experience in implementing: positive or negative AND how long did it take you to implement?
We are looking at online options for high school courses and credit recovery options. We are looking at Aventa and Michigan Virtual University. MVU has had some issues in the past. Does anyone have a recommendation or insight (positive or negative) on these or other online options?
I looking for a job description of a person on the high school or middle school staff that collects, disaggregates or aggregates, then gives or presents that data to Administration, teachers, school board, etc.
