3.Crozier Summer Institute Proposal- Ms. Ngissah, Ms. Ruiz, Ms. Bunch, Ms. Trotter
See attached packet. The teachers are asking for this proposal to be passed.
FAST FORWARD: Ms. Ruiz came to Crozier as a Gear Up UCLA student. She worked with Ms. Ngissah. The two noticed that students were lacking basic skills in core areas.
Fast Forward was developed to give students an opportunity to address basic skills. GEAR UP is no longer at IUSD (did not get board renewed). So, FASR FORAWRD is modeled after that. It is for incoming sixth graders. The students will come from feeder schools.
See meeting dates attached in package.
3 teams: Fast Forward, Let's Stay on Track and Jet Set
JET SET: Ms. Bunch is the GATE coordinator at Crozier. She feels the GATE students at Crozier would benefit from Jet Set. See attached section in packet. Critical thinking will be the focus with pre, during and post assessments
LET'S STAY ON TRACK: Ms. Ngissah said this program for students on grade level. Pre, during and Post assessments will be given. This program prepares the students for the next school year.
LINK: See this section of packet. Ms. Ruiz explained that this program will train and produce mentors (7th and 8th graders) to help with 6th grade orientation and to support 6th graders throughout the school year.
MOTION to approve the Summer Crozier Institute
Ms. Baker: Approve what?
Ms. Nigissah: to continue the development of these programs.
