BREAKING NEWS
Charter Schools Lottery 2022
Hello All! It is that time of year again when the lottery period opens for prospective students. Please see the information below regarding applying for the upcoming school year 2022-2023. Applications can be completed by visiting http://lottery.pgcps.org/. All applications are given a waiting list number based on their Specialty Program choice, grade level, and sequence number. The submission of an application is not a guarantee of placement. The computerized lottery system will assign a random number to each application. Applications are sorted based on this randomly assigned number and assign a sequential number. The lowest random number is assigned number one, the next lowest number two, and so forth. Applications are then sorted by program. Placements are then made on a space availability basis only. The application form permits multiple Specialty Program choices per student. If more than one Specialty Program choice is selected, each choice will be treated equally and placement will be made according to the first available opening. Placement is granted for one Specialty Program choice only. Once the placement is made, the other Program selections are no longer an option. Online applications will begin starting November 1, 2021, through January 28, 2022. The lottery will be held at the end of March. Announcement of student selection will not be made at that time. Students selected through the lottery will be notified by email. Assignments will be made from the waiting list until September 30. Waiting lists will not carry over to the following school year. Continuous updates will not be provided. Notification will be made only when space becomes available. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out via email or phone call. Thank you in advance.

Mrs. Bond, Registrar

HS TEACHER ANNOUNCEMENTS
Mr. Bevard's English Updates
Dear Parents, Guardians, Students, and Friends, Here's an update on the comings and goings of Mr. Bevard's English Classes. - End Of Quarter Preparations: Quarter 1 ends on November the 16th, and grades will be published that weekend. As we take stock of the quarter and look ahead, it's worth noting that low submission rates have been the primary instigator of failing grades. I have taken a number of steps to ensure that students have multiple opportunities to succeed, as well as to reduce all conceivable impediments to the work of our course (see the cancelation notice below, for instance). The final step on this process is to offer targeted credit recovery for 9th grade students. Because our students are still in some ways re-learning how to operate in a real-live educational environment, it is appropriate to offer a one-time credit recovery period for students who may have struggled to reintegrate into the learning routine of in-person school. Once we have achieved 18 assignments in the grade book - the District's minimum number of grades per quarter - the remaining time in the quarter will be spent on Targeted Credit Recovery (TCR). I will designate class days at least 24 hours in advance which students may use to review feedback, confer with me, revise, and resubmit work. Here are the more specific details: 1. Any assignment with a SchoolMax due date after 10/15 is eligible for credit recovery, unless stated otherwise in the assignment description in SchoolMax. 2. Recovered assessments shall earn a score of no more than 65%; recovered classwork may receive up to 100% of earned credit. 3. No TCR assignment shall receive written feedback; rubrics may be used to indicate performance quality, but the expectation here is that students are learning from their mistakes. (If the original error was failure to submit, then students received no feedback and must consult their notes and the Digital Exemplar for a record of the assignment's instructional content). 4. No TCR assignment may be submitted more than once for improved credit. 5. All TCR days are self-contained to the periods in which students are physically in the classroom. No work shall be scored that is submitted outside the assigned TCR day's meeting period. (For instance, first period students will have from 805-852 to identify, review, confer, revise, and resubmit one assignment.) 5. No student shall be eligible for a TCR attempt without being physically present in the classroom. - Canceled Digital Interactive Notebooks Students recently have expressed concern that using the digital interactive notebooks presented an undue obstacle for completion of the work. As a consequence, I have eliminated the digital notebook as a required tool for student use in class. Students are now free to take notes, perform their work, and submit their work in any manner they find preferable - so long as that work is deliverable to Canvas by the posted due dates for scored assignments. A word of caution: students are still liable at any time to produce work completed previously to demonstrate evidence of work and of learning. (For example, I may ask students for their class or reading notes at any time for a grade.). Distancing from the notebook will require that students keep a clear record of their work. I recommend performing all work in a Google Document or the conventional composition book. The Digital Exemplar is still available and remains for the present a compendium of all our assigned work up to this point in the year. At this time, I intend to continue producing this for students as a model for organization, as a document of record, and as a utility to help students maintain awareness of the score and direction of their learning. - Upcoming Absence Mid-November - Paternity Leave Mrs. Bevard and I will shortly welcome to our family our fourth child. I will be absent from school for at least 10 days when this takes place. (Mrs. Bevard is due November 13th, but our sons have a history of tardiness on this point.). To anticipate this absence, I have prepared learning tasks for both my 10th and 9th grade classes. 10th grade students have leant a hand in the design of their learning plan during my absence, and that plan is in the final stages of review and distribution. 9th graders will receive instructions about their learning plan this Thursday. On this date, students will receive ALL materials necessary, as well as a timeline for completion of the work, which is consistent but manageable. It will culminate in an essay based on a novel-length reading, which will form the basis of our composition studies in quarter 3. By the end of class Thursday, all students present in the classroom will have receive opportunity to express their questions and receive answers to their questions. Their assignments will appear in a Canvas module entitled "Paternity Absence."

All the Best! Mr. Bevard, MA English 9 & 10 Department Chair CMIT Academy
