🙌 Let's hear it for our amazing, innovative teachers like Ms. Bullock!

Ya’ll, our teachers. 🙌 Sending major kudos to April Bullock, the Charles Barrett Elementary Teacher of the Deaf! Today, virtual learning went undersea. Kids swam through the ocean with Ms. B, creating number sentences by finding numerals hidden in animated sea life. How does she even do this? Previously she made letters appear to float in the air to teach spelling (video in comments). Seems like magic to me.

Our teachers have become actors and movie producers. I know the times are demanding too much of them and I am so grateful for their passion and energy.

Asking for a friend, are ACPS teachers prohibited from working other jobs during contracted school hours during the school year?

Has anyone contacted the local cable TV companies about putting classes on the empty local access channels?
***Edit*** I hope this aligns with the Superintendent’s guidance-I agree with his suggested way of pushing this forward. ——————————————— *sent to me to share-please share with your students* Hello everyone! My name is Sarah Devendorf and I was one of the students that covered the T.C Williams sign a few weeks ago. I am a rising senior and I am working with Anais Joubert, who is a rising freshman to organize a zoom call that will engage T.C Williams students in the renaming process. On Wednesday, August 5th at 8 PM a zoom call will be held for students to brainstorm and discuss ways to get involved in the renaming process. If you are a current student at TC, will be a student, or are just curious, please attend. https://us04web.zoom.us/j/6406797892?pwd=S2lIbEpDc2E5NlJTWEJkRlQ4OVN3QT09 ID: 640 679 7892 Password:

Virtual school: Need far less teachers and administrators, correct? I’LLC ask my school board how much lower the next budget will be due the lack of need for so many personnel in a virtual environment. With virtual classrooms you can have 1/1,000 ratios teacher to student. Vloggers have streams with thousands of participants. And other costs that won't be needed; maintenance (buses, property, etc), cafeteria food and support and so on. One thing is the budgets for this year are already approved, so the question is where will the surplus budget be expended and can we expect a lower budget next year due to the surplus from this year?
Amazing that our neighboring district can rename a high school, with public input, before ACPS can even draft their plan to maybe rename one
The money and time being spent on going back into schools (disinfectants, ppe, measuring furniture, temp checks, bus routes, consultants for pretty slides, etc, etc.) is all for what? Going back online when a suspected student/teacher/staff and everyone they were in contact with is sent home for two weeks. Spend time and $ on proper online learning and let those in true need in the buildings with staff willing and able to go in. Special Ed, special circumstances (single working parents), known cases of dangerous/insecure living situations, these should all be in the building and social workers/counselors know who these students/families are. Bussing alone is not going to work so why the charade by ACPS? No PhD needed, just some common sense!
IF OUR CHILDREN ARE SO SAFE EXPLAIN THIS 😥😥😥😥😥😥😥😥
The chat about reopening schools is full. Does this mean the rest of us can’t ask questions?
This new plan for the TCW concession stand didn’t take into account....that big beautiful shade tree they want to cut down got grandma and grandpa out of the hot sun of the bleachers. That spot gave the runners coming off the track some relief from the hot sun. I’ve worked these meets for years and I Know this tree is valuable to that area. Going to be a Big mistake cutting it down this week.
As you can see from the photo.. if they cut down this shade tree near the track.. (next week)the new concession stand will offer NO shade and be out in direct sunshine.
