​The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education has requested staff and community input on proposed amendments to the following four policies: 
 
Policy IL, “Research and Evaluation”
The proposed amendments make slight changes to the policy to align it with current CMS practices for internal research of current and proposed programs.  In addition, the amendments change the timing for when summaries of research evaluations are to be shared with the Board; instead of being made available semiannually, they are to be shared as they are completed.

Policy ILB, “Assessment of Students”
The proposed amendments add the terms “to effect change” to the sentence in the first paragraph regarding the goals of student assessment, and make other slight grammatical changes in the same paragraph.  In addition, Section II, 3, is amended to clarify that CMS follows the testing calendar published by the NC Department of Public Instruction.  In the footer, the legal references are updated with the citation to the State Board’s policy on testing. 
 
Policy IMDA, “Observances Honoring National Heroes”
The proposed amendments align the policy with the North Carolina Essential Standards for Social Studies as well as with other CMS policies.
 
Policy JHBB, “Student Attendance Monitoring/Accounting”
The proposed amendments primarily update the policy to align with current CMS practices and staff responsibilities for handling student attendance and truancy cases.  A brief summary of the North Carolina Compulsory Attendance statute has also been added.  

Important Dates:
·         Public Hearing on April 6, 2017
·         Public Hearing and Board Vote on April 25, 2017
 
Please make sure employees at your school or in your department are aware of the opportunity to give feedback to the Board before it votes on the proposed changes.  The policy documents and instructions on how to send comments are posted online in the folder, "Proposed Board Policy," at this web address:   http://www.cms.k12.nc.us/boe/Pages/BoardPolicies.aspx
 
Please print the documents in the Documents Library on the Proposed Policy web page and post them in your school's office or staff mail or work room, or forward this email to all staff in your school or department.  Board policy requires that policies slated for Board action must be publicized in schools so the public and school staff have the opportunity for input before the Board votes.   

Please address questions about this process to Sarah Crowder at sarah.crowder@cms.k12.nc.us.​

RRMS Instructional Spotlight: The 7th Grade Math Team 
Pictured from left to right: Mr. Foster, Mrs. Saxton, Mrs. Oates, Ms. Buell, and Mr. Williams
 
In what ways have you been able to implement close reading strategies in math?
Students use literacy strategies from the Instructional Leadership Team such as annotating and completing Information-Picture-Solution (IPS) charts when problem-solving.
 
How is Personalized Learning used for instruction? 
We provide trackers for students to identify strengths and weaknesses with assessments including the MAP test.  We hold student conferences to address areas needing improvement.  Small groups in inclusion classes have also been successful. We use playlists that introduce content as well as allow students to practice. In addition, we also use BrainPOP, Blendspace, Castle Learning when integrating technology in the classroom. 
 
What suggestions do you have for parents who want to provide additional math assistance outside of school?
Stay aware of student's performance by accessing PowerSchool, encourage students to use Khan Academy as a means to reach mastery on 7th grade standards (other resources include: ixl.com)
 
P.S. We are a great team and work well together :)​
