Dear CNMT Community,
On Tuesday the LAUSD school board voted to approve Phase 1 of the Common Core Technology Project Plan. This is a program proposed originally by the Superintendent to equip every student in LAUSD with a personal computing device.
Phase 1 includes the 13 schools of the Schools for the Future, along with an additional 34 schools that were part of the Office of Civil Rights agreement.
CNMT is one of the 13 Schools for the Future. In fact, we are the only non-new school that is part of this group. Phase 1 will be completed by the Fall, but the Schools for the Future will be rolling out this Spring.
So far one school, Valley Academy of Arts and Sciences, already deployed the iPads to their students in early November. There was a delay because of questions that the District Bond Oversight Committee had, but now we are ready to move forward. Continue reading
Dear CNMT community,
For the past few weeks I have been going over our progress to date this year with teachers, counselors and out-of-classroom staff in order to prepare for the CNMT midyear data review.
This has been a valuable experience, since I’ve had the opportunity to have some honest and informative discussions with a number of folks. Overall I would say that we are making progress and the current data look promising. I want to share a few highlights here.
CNMT seniors Rene Ayala and Oscar Rodriguez have been featured on Hear in the City, a local show on Pacifica’s KPFK. They worked with reporter Sara Harris to produce a story on bullying, that has been selected to be part of a national one-hour radio series: Generation PRX’s Bullied Project. Sara Harris also shares an interview with bullying prevention and intervention specialist Holly Priebe-Díaz from the Los Angeles Unified School District.
