Dear Bitz Intermediate School Teachers and Staff,
It seems like yesterday we were telling the students good-bye and I told you to have a restful, fun
and exciting summer. And now I am writing the welcome back letter for SY 16-17. Wow! I cant
believe we will be welcoming our Gator students back in a few short weeks.
With a few changes on our staff, I would like to welcome Mr. Richard Peters (ET) to our Gator
team. Mr. Peters is the new educational technologist and is ready to assist you in any way he can
to enable our students to be able to use technology in their everyday learning. Also, I would like to
welcome Ms. Valerie McKeon who will be joining us to teach 4 th grade. Ms. McKeon taught at JPS
and is excited about becoming a Gator! Mr. Hockman will teach 3 rd grade this year and Ms. Auls
will teach 4th grade. They both are also excited about their new assignments. I am still in the
process of hiring a SLP, secretary, office/media clerk and lunchroom monitor. Believe me; I want
these positions filled as soon as possible.
I previously sent the early return schedule, I hope everyone received it. If you did not, please
contact me at school and I will make sure you are informed. Our Bitz beginning of the year
schedule is as follows:
Wednesday, August 17

thankful to be a part of this great staff. I know we will continue to have the compassion and
passion it takes to give our students a great education!
Enjoy the last few days of summer!
Sincerely,
Dewanda Sholar

at the data that shows how our students are doing and ways to continually improve
achievement.

distract and local assessments.

BITZ CORE VALUES

At Bitz, we believe that schools promote the academic and social growth of all students to become
independent and productive citizens in a global community.

At Bitz, we believe that within a safe and secure environment, students with the support of their parents and
teachers, should be responsible and accountable for their educational and social choices.

3.

At Bitz, we believe that a quality instructional program is one in which diverse needs are met for all students
as evidenced by the use of engaging differentiated instructional strategies and learning styles.

At Bitz, we believe that a quality instructional program includes clearly stated goals; positive, caring and
supportive leadership; a dedicated staff who continue to grow in their profession; and a committed
community working together to meet student needs.

5.

At Bitz, we believe that students will become independent as well as cooperative problem solvers using
critical thinking skills to help them persevere and have a lifelong love of learning.

6.

At Bitz, we believe that students will utilize effective written and oral communication skills using a variety of
resources.

7.

At Bitz, we believe that students are provided and actively participate in a variety of technological
experiences to equip them for life.

8.

At Bitz, we believe in and support the unique needs of the military child through the partnership of the
community and families.

ABSENCE AND LEAVE

POLICY:
DDESS managers have the authority to approve employee requests for annual, personal, sick leave
and leave without pay. It is the employee's responsibility to submit leave requests. Certified
employees such as teachers and classified employees such as educational aides should refer to Article
21 of their respective Master Labor Agreements for determining the type of leave to request.

EACH EMPLOYEE WILL:


Request leave in advance to permit planning of substitutes and equitability in granting leave.
Complete and sign an OPM Form 71, Request for Leave or Approved Absence (leave form). Leave
forms are available on the K Drive or in the front office.
For emergency absence due to illness, call the secretary (451-2575) after 0700 and she will arrange for
a substitute teacher. If you must leave before the end of the duty day due to illness, you must contact
the principal. Teachers are NOT to arrange their own substitute teachers. This is the responsibility of
an administrator or secretary.
Request, in advance, approval of leavefor prearranged medical, dental
examination/treatment.

or optical

When possible, schedule medical, dental, optical appointments during off-duty hours or nonworkdays. Please fill out leave forms in advance of your absence so you are accurately paid and the
school can plan ahead for your absence.
Leave requests must be made to the Principal and approved by the Principal.

BULLETIN BOARDS
Bulletin boards for displaying authentic student work and student achievement are located in
the hallways and classrooms. Bulletin boards should be connected to Content Standards and
CSI Goals. Bulletin boards inside and outside of classrooms must be utilized and updated
regularly.

CAFETERIA RULES AND PROCEDURES


1. Classes should enter the cafeteria in an orderly manner.
2. Teachers will walk with the students all the way to the lunch-line. Teachers may then leave.
3. Students move along the line to get silverware, napkins, lunch and milk. Students go through the
lunch line and stop to pay the cashier.
4. Students will remain seated during the lunch, unless a monitor gives permission to do otherwise.

5. Quiet conversations only.


6. When students have finished eating they will ask permission and take trays and trash to the
disposal area, placing appropriate items into receptacles.
7. Students will participate in Healthy Walk, located in in front of the school.
8. Students are not allowed to leave the cafeteria unless they have a pass from a teacher.
9. Teachers will return and meet their students at the end of the lunch period to escort them back to
their classrooms.

CHAIN OF COMMAND
Your chain of command for school problems is as follows: Teacher, Principal, Assistant
Superintendent, District Superintendent, and Mid Atlantic DDESS Superintendent. The principal is your
link in the chain. Your principal is your immediate supervisor and has the responsibility of seeking
assistance for those matters which cannot be resolved at the school level. The chain of command
should be used in order to most efficiently and effectively solve situations.

CHILD ABUSE REPORTING PROCEDURES


The Director of DoDEA has mandated that all instances of suspected child abuse must be reported. Do
not investigate the incident; instead, report it to your immediate supervisor. The principal will assist
you in making a formal report to FAP. The principal will report all incidents to the superintendent, who,
in turn, reports to the Director, DoDEA.

CLASS ATTENDANCE
Each teacher is required t o report student attendance daily. After the child is absent he/she is
required to give the office a written note from his/her parents (personal parent input will also
suffice) or doctor.
The Aspen computerized list will be the official record of absences and
tardiness, and therefore, should be maintained accurately.
All attendance must be turned i n by 9:00 a.m. daily i n o r d e r f o r the clerk to run the
attendance program. Parents will be notified through the One Call Now system that their child was
absent that day.
Bitz Intermediate School will follow DoDEA Regulation 2095.1 - School Attendance. Please
familiarize yourself with this regulation in order to make sure it is followed for students in your
classroom.

never to be left unattended. In addition to routine classroom supervision, teachers are expected to
provide supervision for their classes at the following times:
1. in the hallways, before classes and during passing times
2. all the way to the lunch line at lunchtime Please do not drop students off at the door.
3. after lunch when the class is met at their designated area

specials teacher.
5.

during school-wide assembly programs

6. during recess
7. during dismissal, walking to the car rider line and buses.

CLASSROOM SECURITY
ROOM SECURITY- When leaving your room for any extended period of time (lunch, etc.) lock all of the
entrances to your room and turn out the lights. The following may help you:
1. Lock your classroom door when you leave it for extended periods.
2. Never leave children unsupervised in the classroom.
3. ALWAYS TAKE YOUR PURSE OR WALLET WITH YOU WHEREVER YOU GO OR LOCK IT UP IN YOUR CLASSROOM.
4. Announce to the children that they are not to bring large sums of money or valuables to school.
5. Lock your valuable items in cabinets when possible.
6. Classroom doors and windows must be locked when you leave for the day. Do not count on the
custodians to do this for you.

COMPUTERS
Each classroom has student laptops and teacher computers/laptops. Computers are not allowed to be
removed from the room, unless it is done by the school Educational Technologist. Laptops can be
shared among classes but must be in their assigned room every night and plugged into the network.
Each computer has an assigned barcode and the barcode correlates with classroom inventory.
Computers are allowed, however, to be moved within the classroom they are assigned to, but only if
they have a network and electrical outlet to plug into. All computers must be plugged into a network
and electrical outlet AT ALL TIMES. Headquarters and the Area Service Center periodically send out
updates or software which will only be installed on computers that are on.
Classroom teachers should ensure that all computers/laptops are left on at all times. Computer
monitors/screens should be turned off, but please make sure the CPU is left on.

COMPUTER LAB SCHEDULE


A computer lab sign up can be found no the Bitz Outlook Calendar. Please work together and with the
E.T. to schedule times for lab use. When we move to using the C.O.W.S., there will also be a sign up
sheet
for them.

CONFIDENTIALITY
All employees are expected to respect the confidentiality of our students and information concerning
student behavior, lack of academic progress, special problems and needs of our student should not be
discussed except with individuals who have a legitimate educational purpose to be informed.
Do not discuss students or school business while in the presence of by-standers.

CONTACT WITH OUTSIDE AGENCIES


All staff members should inform an administrator prior to making any outside agency contacts
regarding a school matter.

CONTINUOUS SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT


Bitz Intermediate School is accredited by AdvancEd. Even though CLDS is moving towards district
accreditation there is a continuous school improvement team who guides the process of school
improvement/accreditation, the responsibility of continuous school improvement is that of the ENTIRE
faculty. WE must continuously collect and study student data, as well as, work collaboratively
throughout every year to move Bitz Intermediate School forward.. CSI is our faculty, parents, students
and community working together to determine our school goals and implementing activities to
increase student achievement. CSI never stops! CSI is not just the accreditation visit...this visit
allows a visiting team to review our documentation and observe our school practices to make sure
we are "walking the walk'' and moving in a forward direction for the best education of children.
The Continuous School Improvement Committee for SY 2016-2017 are:
Administrators: Dewanda Sholar, Principal
CSI Chair: Dannette Jackson

The CSI team meets every _____ Tuesday ______ _ in office conference room.

CONTROVERSIAL SUBJECT MATTER


Any subject that you are presenting in your class and that you feel might be of a controversial nature
must be coordinated with administration. After this, it must be explained to the parents of your
students, as a courtesy, so that they may have the option of keeping their children out of that
particular class.
For example: If you are showing a film or discussing a controversial topic, you should send a notice
home to the parents explaining:
1. Who is presenting the topic?

2. What the topic is.


3. When it will be presented.
The administration is to be advised of matters in the above before notices are sent home.

CORPORAL PUNISHMENT
Corporal punishment is not allowed for any pupil, preschool through grade 12, in any DDESS school.

DISCIPLINE PLAN- BITZ POSITIVE BEHAVIOR


Bitz Intermediate School has developed a school wide positive behavior support plan. Positive
behavior support focuses on positive student behaviors while teaching students appropriate ways
to behavior throughout the school. Teachers will work with students in their classrooms and
collaborate with parents to make insure students display appropriate school behavior. The
Guidance Counselor can be used as a resource and the Principal will also work with teachers,
students and parents to assist with positive behavior. DoDEA Regulation 2051.1 will be followed as
necessary.

DDESS PERFORMANCE APPRAISAL


Performance appraisal and the resulting rating are integrated parts of the DDESS performance
management program. The performance appraisal process shall be used for improving performance to
more efficiently accomplish the mission of DDESS. The performance appraisal results will be used to
strengthen supervisor-employee work relationships, improve individual performance by keeping
employees aware of their supervisors performance expectations and judgments of their work
performance, recognize and reward those whose performance so warrants, and to help in the decision
making process for remedial or developmental training, reassignment, promotions, reduction-in-grade
actions, retraining and removing employees.
All teachers will receive an evaluation at the end of each school year. To support this evaluation,
announced and unannounced observations will be made by the administration. The formal visits will
be followed with written comments on the observation and an opportunity for the teacher to discuss
these comments if he/she desires. Teachers are encouraged to pr ovide d o c u m e n t a t i o n of
their performance for their evaluation file in the main office.
Teachers will attend at least one pre-conference with an administrator. Observation notes will be
provided to the teacher during the post conference. New teachers will receive at least three formal
observations. Returning teachers will receive at least one formal observation.

DoDEA Certificate/Licensure
Maintaining current professional certification/licensure is the responsibility of the employee and is a
condition of employment. Information about ongoing licensure will be disseminated by the
administration.

EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGIST
All DODEA schools have an Educational Technologist at each school. The ET works with classroom
teachers to facilitate the integration and infusion of technology across curriculum areas.
If you are
working on projects, the ET can provide you with technology integration. In addition, the ET assesses
technology training needs and arranges or supports training. If you are experiencing problems with
your classroom computers, email or call the ET so that he can troubleshoot the problem. If he
cannot fix it, you will then need to submit a Help Desk Request (See Help Desk Request).

EMERGENCY CLASS COVERAGE


No staff member may assume another staff members responsibilities without prior administrative
approval (bone fide emergency exempted)

GRADESPEED
This online grade book helps to keep parents informed about their childs progress. Teachers are expected to
utilize this tool and to include special notes about assignments as needed. DSO guidance requires teachers to
input at least 2 grades on a weekly basis to allow parents access to ongoing, up-to-date student progress. If you
update on specific days, please inform your parents. Grades 4 and 5 use GradeSpeed.

HELP DESK REQUEST


A help desk request must be submitted for any technology issues that you experience with your
teacher computer, student computers, or printers. To complete a Help Desk Request, access the new
Kayako Helpdesk, please open the link below to login.

HOMEWORK
Homework is defined as tasks that are assigned by teachers to students that are completed during
non-school hours. The purpose of homework is to make a significant contribution to the student's
learning by (1) practicing and extending skills already taught, (2) providing parents the opportunity to
observe the student's work and participate in the learning process, (3) helping students develop a
positive disposition and attitude towards learning and (4) helping students develop good study habits
and organizational skills.
Reading daily is an expectation at these grade levels, and is not considered part of the time allocation.
Unfinished class assignments should not be sent home for homework. To ensure that students can
work on an independent level on homework assignments, teachers assign tasks that students have
reached mastery level of understanding of concepts. Therefore, homework assignments may not
parallel class work in sequence.
In order to be effective, homework is the responsibility of the students, parents, and teachers working together
to support the objective.
Homework can have beneficial effects other than knowledge acquisition. Homework can help students
develop good study habits. Homework can help students recognize they can learn at home as well as at
school. It can foster independent learning and responsible character traits. Homework can give parents an
opportunity to see evidence of student work. Not all homework is paper and pencil tasks. For example, some
homework in primary grades will be students reading to parents and parents reading to parents and parents
reading to students, taking part in creative art activities or just showing parents the topics of what they are
learning in school.

HONOR ROLL
(Grades 4 & 5)
There are two categories of Honor Roll Lists:
Principal's Honor Roll

All A's

Honor Roll

All A's and B's

All subjects will be utilized to determine eligibility. Certificates will be given each quarter. Teachers
may give additional awards to students as they see as necessary
Third grade may give achievement awards to students for meeting their individual academic goals.

INCLEMENT WEATHER
Each teacher should observe extreme caution concerning the amount of physical activity required of
children when the temperature e xc e e d s 90 degrees. When the temperature is below 40 degrees,
students will be brought into the building prior to the beginning of school. Communication regarding
school closings will be made by One Call Now or the staff phone chain.

K DRIVE (FACULTY DRIVE)


The K Drive, also known as the Faculty Drive or Common drive, is a common storage area on our
computers that allow all staff users to access. School documents, information, schedules, etc. are
located on the K Drive. To access the K drive, double click on My Computer from the desktop. Once
the window opens, double click on the drive that says K Drive. Every effort is made to limit the
amount and type of information saved to this drive. Please do not save any documents that pertain
to you or your classroom, grade level, or team. This drive can be accessed by all Heroes Staff users,
so nothing is private.

LESSON PLANS
Lesson plans should be prepared for the following week. Plans for the week should be ready no later
than Monday morning at 0800 hours. Minimal requirements for lesson plans are noted in each staff
member's specific standards.
For example, lesson plans should reflect instructional goals, the plan should be matched with the
system/organization curriculum, the plan should be matched to student needs, etc. All plans should
be congruent with DoDEA standards. Specific modifications for special needs students should be
noted.
Administrators may ask to examine lesson plans periodically throughout the school year. This is a
means of monitoring the instructional program to ensure our instruction is congruent with DoDEA
standards.
Although many educators write specific plans for substitutes when they anticipate an absence in
advance, there are times when we cannot anticipate an absence. In those cases, substitute teachers
and/or administrators should be able to easily follow daily lesson plans. The substitute folder should be
placed either in the top desk drawer or on the desk where it is easily accessible.

MIDTERM INTERIM REPORTS


Midterm Interim Reports are to be sent home mid-way between each marking period. All students will
receive an interim report.
Notices are to be sent to parents of all students who are not making
satisfactory progress or have shown a drop in performance. If you find that a student's grades drop
significantly after the mid-term reports have been sent home, be sure the parent is informed.
A
student's grade should not be a surprise to parents at the end of the grading period.
All Midterm Interim Reports should be signed by parents, returned to the school and kept on file in
the teacher's classroom.

The key is to maintain pro-active communication with parents.

MOVIES IN THE CLASSROOM


User supplied movies can be shown as a supplement or to augment academic, standardsbased lessons. If you would like to show a movie in your class, these guidelines must be used:

1. only G movies are allowed,


2. all Copy Right Laws must be followed,
3. the movie must have an instructional purpose and meet DoDEA Content Standards,
4. you must receive the written approval of administrators prior to the showing,
5. you must notify parents and allow an opt-out activity,
6. a copy of the video use form can be found at the back of this handbook.

NURSE
Bitz Intermediate School has a full time nurse on staff. If nursing services are needed please send the
student to the nurse's office with a nurse pass (sample included on page a). If the child is injured in a
manner that requires them to stay still, please call for the nurse to come to your location.
Head
injuries, breathing troubles, etc. are examples of when the nurse should be called to come to you.
Students taking medications must have a signed permission from the doctor AND their parents. The
forms are located in the nurse's office or the front office. Please remember that students are not
allowed to possess or take any type of prescription or non-prescription medications in the classroom.
Non-prescription includes Tylenol and cough drops.
Please see the nurse if you need further
explanation.

DAILY OPENING & DISMISSAL


The National Anthem, Pledge of Allegiance, Gator Pledge & announcements will be made daily
at 8:30 every day. Please send electronic announcements to the secretary at least one day prior to
when you need the announcement made or added to the master calendar. Important information
will be found daily on the Bitz Gator Gazette.
During dismissal from school, classroom teachers are responsible for walking their students all the
way to the bus loading area. Additional staff members should be in the hallway assisting with
monitoring students or at their assigned duty area.

PARENT CLASSROOM VISITATION


All parents are welcome to visit classes. Anything we can do to stimulate the interest of the parents in
school work will be a help to both the pupil and the teacher. Parents must come to the office and
obtain a visitors pass before entering the classroom for class observation. Parents must not use
the time to discuss individual issues. Those issues must be discussed before or after school. We
strongly encourage parents to make an appointment to visit classes. A phone call from the office will be
made to the teacher announcing the parent visit.

PARENT CONFERENCES
District-wide parent conferences are listed on the school system's master calendar. Teachers or
parents may request a conference at any time to discuss student achievement and/or behavior.
Parent conferences are a great way to build rapport, collaborate and insure student success.

PARENT CORRESPONDENCE GENERAL NOTICES


Please check all written communications for grammatical and spelling errors before
sending. Its not a bad idea to have a colleague proofread communications.
All letters to parents on an individual basis are to be cleared with the administration if you feel
the topic is sensitive or controversial.
When assigning detentions or disciplinary consequences, parents must be notified at least a
day in advance. Please do not assign an after-school detention unless you have directly
spoken to the parent or have a copy of email correspondence. Do not assume that messages
left on voice mail or answering machines have been received. Do not assume that email
messages are read.

PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION


The Parent Teacher Association is a partnership between parents, and educators. In order to fully
support that partnership, you may join and attend meetings.

PARENT-TEACHER RELATIONSHIPS
Parents and teachers are, ideally, partners in the cooperative enterprise of assisting and giving
students the opportunity to gain the maximum possible benefit from his or her school experience.
To ensure the best possible parent-teacher relationships teachers should:
1. Meet early in the year with parents of your students. A Meet and Greet scheduled for this
purpose will be announced.
2. Encourage the parents to visit you, your classroom, and to become involved in special
projects and instructional activities.
3. Keep parents informed throughout the year concerning what your class is doing. (newsletters,
notes, e-mail, telephone, etc.)
4. Invite parents to have conferences with you before your relationship with a particular student
reaches a crisis point. The conference should be most productive when:
a. parents and the students are made aware in advance of your reason for requesting the
conference.
b. Parents and students are given an opportunity to indicate concerns and questions they
would like discussed.
c. The students' strengths are emphasized.
d. Weaknesses are discussed constructively (with an explanation being given as to what
assistance you have given the student to help him/her overcome them).
e. Specific suggestions are made to parents regarding ways in which they can assist the
student with what you are trying to accomplish.
f. Parents are encouraged to provide information and opinions regarding their child.
g. The conference ends with positive and encouraging comments.
h. An invitation for future visits to the classroom is extended to parents.

The majority of parents cooperate willingly and productively with faculty members. Most of them are
sincerely concerned about their child's progress in school. In those cases where this tends not to be
the case, the following guidelines or procedures should be followed:
1. be positive about some aspect of the student's performance. Do not set the tone for a
conference by placing the parent in a defensive position.
2. All possible efforts should be made to prevent an ongoing parent teacher conference from
becoming negative or hostile in tone. Should emotions reach a level where the outcome is not
going to be positive, suggest to the parents that the conference be continued at another time.
(Reschedule conference for a later date).
3. Parents who approach a faculty member in anger should be dealt with calmly. However, you
are not expected to take abuse and may ask the Principal to intervene "at once". Do not
hesitate to do this.
4. If an issure being discussed with a parent cannot be resolved, suggest arranging for a threeway conference to include an administrator. The teacher should take the initiative for arranging
the conference to ensure follow-up.

The following standard procedure is used when parents contact the Principal with concerns regarding a
faculty member:

1. after determining the nature of the parent's concern, the question is asked, "Have you
discussed this with the teacher concerned?" If not, the parent is advised to do so.
2. If it subsequently becomes necessary to schedule a conference with the Principal, one is
usually arranged with the parents. The faculty member involved is notified in order that he/she
may
be present should this be requested.
Each case is handled on its own merit in terms of the student's welfare and best interest. Every
possible effort will be made to resolve the issue in a manner that is supportive to the faculty
member concerned.

Passes
Students should have a hall pass when they are in the hallway or walking to a different destination
in the building. Teachers can provide their own hall passes; however, items should be small and
conservative in nature. Students should not be in the hallway without a pass or adult
supervision.

PAY
Teachers are paid every 2 weeks. The time and attendance report (T&A) for teachers is maintained in
the office and submitted every 2 weeks. It should be emphasized that leave forms are essential in
keeping track of leave accurately. It is the employee's responsibility to provide a leave form for each
absence. The school secretary is the point of contact for questions concerning pay. If problems remain
unresolved, please inform your supervisor. Leave forms are located in the front office, as well as, on
the K Drive.

RELEASE OF STUDENTS DURING SCHOOL TIME


No student will be released from the school or classroom to any adult other than the parent or
guardian except with written permission. Parents are requested to report first to the school office,
"sign out" the student, and then the office staff will call the student to the office to be released.
Students who are sick and need to go home must be sent to the nurse prior to contacting parents to
pick up the student from school. Teachers are not to call parents to pick up their sick child, this
is the responsibility of the school nurse. If the nurse is unavailable someone from the office will
contact the parent.

REPORT CARDS
Report cards will be issued at the end of each marking period. Grades will be reported along with
comments. Grades on report cards will be determined by the student's achievement and ability.
Grades are not in any way determined by a student's behavior. Behavior problems are to be handled
separately from academic grades.
DDESS policy prohibits mentioning on the progress report that students receive special education
services. However, in the comment section it is allowable to mention that the curriculum has been
modified. Comments on progress reports should match grades and should be stated in a positive,
proactive, and solution-oriented way.
A report card will be completed for any student present 20 days or more in a quarter. For students
who attended fewer than 20 days, write "Insufficient attendance for assessment" in the column for that
quarter. DDESS policy does not allow students to be promoted to the next grade unless they remain in
school until a date in May that is published on the official school calendar. If a child withdraws in the
spring, but before the specific promotion date, the principal will write a letter stating, "Had John Doe
remained at Bitz Intermediate until the end of the school year, he/she would have been promoted to
grade_."
See the CLDS Master Calendar for report card dates.

SAFETY PROCEDURES
PURPOSE:

This policy describes the Safety Procedures to be employed throughout Bitz Intermediate School.
GENERAL:

We as educators have a moral as well as legal obligation to insure a safe environment in which
students can pursue a quality education. Adequate student supervision should be provided at all
times. Students should never be left unsupervised on school grounds. In order that we may offer a
safe school environment the following procedures are necessary.
SPECIAL AREAS OF CONCERN:
PLAY GROUNDS - rules for playground use and behavior are contained in the parent/student
handbooks. Special emphasis should be given to reminding students of these rules. Adequate student
supervision should be provided at all times. Inspections of all play grounds and equipment will be
made by school officials. Any dangerous, broken, or potentially hazardous situation should be
reported to the administration as soon as it is noted. Teachers and Staff must actively monitor
student activity and behavior while on the playground.
PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLASSES - Do not leave students unattended. Inspect equipment regularly. At
the beginning of each semester, insure that all students are informed of the special hazards inherent in
a physical education program and of rules for conduct and participation.
RESPONSIBILITIES

School administrators are responsible for:


a. Developing a School Safety Program and designating responsibilities listed
therein. b. Developing a School Sanitation Plan, and insuring that plan is enforced.

time will be responsible for the students during the assembly.
All teachers are expected to remind students of the appropriate behavior during assemblies and
programs. Teachers must also actively ensure that students behave appropriately during performances.

STUDENT PLACEMENT COMMITTEE


It is the policy of DoDEA that each student will be provided an appropriate program of studies
designed to foster academic and personal success. Placement of students will be considered on an
individual basis. Decisions will reflect the best interest of the student. The Student Placement
Committee is designed to assist with the other than routine placement of students. This committee is
formed at the direction of the Principal. The committee meets, discusses the student and forms a
placement recommendation to be forwarded to the Principal who in turn renders a decision regarding
the student's placement. (DoDEA Regulation 2000.3)
Class placement will include, but not limited to, the following
considerations:
1.

Student's age

2.

Grade last completed

3.

Previous school performance

4.

Previous retention (retain only once)

5.

STUDY TRIPS
Study trips can enrich the curriculum and make subjects "come alive" for students. All trips should be
related to curricular studies and be closely tied to units of study. Careful planning will ensure that trips
are meaningful and relevant experiences for children. Teachers should be familiar with the places they
choose to visit before scheduling trips. No more than two study trips per class will be approved
for the school year.
In order for students to participate in study trips, a parent must sign a permission slip prior to the trip.
Please follow this guideline when planning study trips:
1. Submit study trip proposals to the Principal by September 10th. These have to be forwarded
to the DSO. (Unless DSO requests them earlier)
2. Submit a request for a study trip and a Transportation Request to the Principal 4 weeks prior
to the trip. Forms are located on the K Drive or see the Principal.
3. Upon approval, be sure to send a permission slip to parents, informing them of the details of
the trip.
4. It is the duty of the teacher to inform the lunchroom manager at least two weeks in advance
if the class is to miss lunch. Include any requests for bag lunches at least two weeks in advance.
5. Plan standards based activities to prepare the students for the trip and follow-up activities after
the trip.
6. Only one teacher per class is authorized for each trip.
from parent volunteers.

Other chaperons must be arranged

7. Adequate chaperone coverage will usually be six students to one chaperone.


Additional
chaperones may be necessary depending on the composition of the classes. Only parent
chaperones may ride the bus.
8. Teachers are to take school phone numbers, cellular phones, or sufficient change to notify the
school of problems - i.e., bus problems, late return.
9. Know where you are going. A driver may know what town to go to, but not the exact place.
Before returning to school, account for all students by using roll call, head count or buddy
system. It is your responsibility to ensure that the bus returns to school before 2:00 PM. If a
trip is planned with an after school return, it is the staff member's responsibility to see that all
students are picked up.
10. Students who are on Study Trips cannot be expected to turn in work to other teachers as may
otherwise have been assigned. Please make arrangements with students to make up their
work.
11. Enjoy your Trip!!!!

STUDENTS REMAINING AFTER SCHOOL


If teachers choose to keep students after school, it is their responsibility to provide supervision for the
student(s) at all times. Parents must be informed prior to keeping the student(s).

STUDENT SUPPORT TEAM


The SST process emphasizes that early intervention for struggling students is a function of the general
education program and not of special education. The SST is a school-based problem solving team
composed primarily of general educators who provide support to teachers to improve the quality of
the general education program and reduce the underachievement of students. One might think of the
SST as the "think-tank", a peer support group, or a forum for structured and routine focus on
addressing student needs. The intervention team is a common sense approach that offers a systematic
process to successfully close the gap through which students have traditionally fallen. The team is not
so much a "new" service, but rather it builds on existing services and efforts in order to upgrade the
school's ability to respond effectively to student needs. The SST has a vital role in creating a high
achieving school as expressed in the following goals" 1) enable teachers to teach students more
effectively, 2) enable students to acquire academic and social competencies, achieve standards,
become independent learners for life, and 3) create a collaborative culture among all staff. The SST
should not be viewed as a gatekeeper to the special education process.
The Student Support Team's primary function is routine, structured problem solving in
conjunction with teachers requesting assistance, and the resolution of student-centered problems.
Teams work effectively with other teachers and staff members, analyze student problems, and
design interventions powerful enough to effect the desired change. The functions and services the
teams provide vary with the needs of the individual schools.

SUBSTITUTES AND SUBSTITUTE FOLDERS


SUBSTITUTES:
In the event of an illness requiring the use of a substitute on a short-notice basis the
Principal/secretary should be notified as soon as possible.
Request for leave should be made as far in advance as possible. Request for this leave is to be in
writing. Any concerns with the performance of a substitute in your room during your absence should
be shared with the administration as soon as possible and in writing.
SUBSTITUTE FOLDER PLANS: all teachers must maintain a Substitute Folder for use by a substitute teacher
when the regular teacher is absent. If the regular classroom teacher is absent, the clearly labeled substitute
teacher folder must be on top of the regular teacher's desk where it is easily accessible by the substitute
teacher. When the regular teacher is absent in case of emergency, the folder must be located near their desk
where administration can find it. The substitute teacher folder should contain the following information and
materials:
An up-to-date seating chart, names on desks or class lists,
Applicable names of books currently used,
Daily lesson schedules,
Duties (if any),
Any specific information on special pupils (if any),
Additional worksheets to use if needed by the substitute,
Additional suggestions and materials for projects,
Schedule for students going to special classes. (LD, Cl,
ESL,GRT,ETC.), Teacher roster and rooms,
Fire drill/emergency procedures,
Information concerning reporting of attendance, classroom procedures, lunch, restrooms,
and dismissal procedures,
Location of classroom materials.

SUPPLIES/ROOM REPAIRS
Please see School Support Assistant, Francis Sator, for any supplies you need for your classroom. If
repairs are needed, please email the Principal to schedule those. DO NOT contact the maintenance
department yourself or just ask a maintenance worker to do something for you while they are in the
building. There are procedures that have to be followed.

Teacher Conduct
Teachers are Federal employees in the executive branch of the U.S. Government and are bound by the
standards of ethical conduct in 5 C.F.R. Part 2635. Teachers will conduct themselves with
professionalism. When disagreements occur with another staff member, the parties are strongly
encouraged to resolve it themselves or seek assistance from school administration.
Teachers who struggle with personal issues are encouraged to contact the Employee Assistance
Program. Such contact may be kept confidential.
Teachers should never "friend" current or immediate past students on social networking sites. It is not
wise to engage in electronic relationships with students and parents.
Teachers who engage in misconduct can expect to receive progressive discipline such as letters of
caution, letters of reprimand, suspension from duty without pay, or removal from Federal service
in accord with Article 25 DISCIPLINARY ACTIONS of their respective MLA.
In the unfortunate circumstance that a teacher is removed from the classroom due to an allegation of
misconduct, a long -term sub will be assigned to the classroom. Teachers may be placed in another
setting while the investigation takes place. The same procedures for child abuse reporting are used
with reporting allegations of staff misconduct. When a long- term sub is hired, the sub will prepare
lesson plans, grade papers, and teach in the absence of the teacher. Permission will be granted for the
sub to access Gradespeed.
Teachers must not touch students, particularly in a disciplinary context. Never, ever touch a student
when angry or frustrated.
Teachers are expected to dress in a manner that is meeting the needs of their students and the lesson
being taught.

TELEPHONES
The phones at school are for official use only. Please do not ask the secretary to place calls for
you. The best way to make sure that there is no misunderstanding between parties is to make
the call yourself. The secretary will take messages and place them in the teachers boxes only or send
phone calls to your voicemail. You will not be called during your class to answer the phone except if
an emergency exists.
When making official calls, please use the phone in your classroom and keep them short and to the
point. The phone is a very poor media for conducting a teacher parent conference, but at times
quite necessary.
Students should not use the telephones unless supervised by a teacher or staff member.
Teachers and staff should not use cell phones to talk or text while supervising students unless an
emergency arises.

VISITOR'S
PASS
No parent/visitor is to be in Bitz Intermediate School or come to a classroom without a
pass.
Should a visitor arrive without a pass, inform them that for security reasons, it is school policy that
they must obtain a visitor's pass from the Principal's office. This i s a security precaution and
prevents interruption of classes.
Visitors must return the pass to the office before leaving.

All educators must be recertified every six years. The basic requirements for Recertification are:
Educators must complete six semester hours of undergraduate or graduate level course work taken at a U.S. regionally
accredited educational institution after the date listed on current certificate.

Courses are to be taken in areas related to the current teaching position or administrator assignment or divided among
subject areas the educator is teaching if teaching more than one subject.

Three of the six semester hours may be earned in subject areas that will qualify the educator for another position
category within DoDEA.

Effective January 1, 2006, up to three semester hours of course work taken during the final four months of a renewal
cycle that are not needed for that cycle may be carried over to the next renewal cycle. Hours for a single course may not be
split between two renewal cycles.

Educators must apply for Recertification, at least 12 months prior to the expiration date of their current certificate to avoid
receiving a "Projected Notice of Deficiency (PNOD)."
Procedures for Recertification are:

Complete the DoDEA Certification/Recertification Worksheet Request and check B-Recertification.
