After the Discipline Hearing...

  • At the moment of the MAP Placement for a student, the Home Campus Administrator will email the student's teachers.
  • Home Campus Teachers will send work to MAP through Google Classroom, Edgenuity, or ECHO.  
  • Students will complete assignments submitted from their Home Campus Teachers through Google Classroom, Edgenuity, or ECHO.  (1 - Google Classroom per teacher per course)
  • Work sent through Google Classroom must be send as an assignment, not an announcement. 
  • NearPod assignments or lessons can be sent through Google Classrooms. 
  • Students will have access to a computer to complete their assignments.  
  • The MAP teacher will administer all district CFA’s and CBA’s
  • Students will receive interventions based on data from the STAAR/EOC, or other data sources in Eduphoria and Skyward
  • Send enough work for your subject for 300 minutes each week.  Core Classes are 1-hour long each day.
  • Be sure all assignments have due dates and necessary resources attached for completion. 
  • The MAP doesn't have the same resources so please provide what students will need electronically.
  • Elective Teachers, if your class cannot be completed using the above options, please contact your campus administrator and district director (if applicable) to develop a summer school solution for the student. 
  • Be sure if the student participates in special programs that the related case manager and coordinators are also collaborated with. 
  • If you want to send supplementary assignments or school work for interventions (not for a grade), please add it to your Google Classroom, Edgenuity, or ECHO and note as such.
  • Add the corresponding teacher (same subject you teach) as a co-teacher to your Google Classroom.  Share the access codes with our classroom teachers as well.  If you are an elective teacher, give co-teacher authority to the teacher with the "*" in the appropriate grade level.

Course Continuation
  • The home campus team (teacher, admin, counselor) will need to review each student's placement and make a determination if a student will need to be dropped from a class because of the DAEP placement or not. Please note, that some courses cannot be taught or supported by the MAP (for example, Band, Choir, Dance, CTE, etc.).
    • Per the Texas Education Code:
      • (l) A school district is required to provide in the district's disciplinary alternative education program a course necessary to fulfill a student's high school graduation requirements only as provided by this subsection. A school district shall offer a student removed to a disciplinary alternative education program an opportunity to complete coursework before the beginning of the next school year. The school district may provide the student with an opportunity to complete coursework through any method available, including a correspondence course, distance learning, or summer school. The district may not charge the student for a course provided under this subsection.
      • Please keep this in mind when considering placements
Preventive Programming Recommendation
  • Let's run reports weekly to intervene on students before they reach 5 referrals
  • Be sure teachers know their tier 1 and 2 interventions for behavior and academics
  • If you need help or feedback on teachers with classroom management or student behavior, call me.
