ESE Support Facilitation
Happy April 2020!
I am Mr. Mickle and I am pleased to be reaching out to you in this way during the school closure and distance/virtual learning for 7th Grade Life Science.
1. ESE Support Facilitation will take place every Wednesday and Thursday by use of Skyward e-mail - from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 (noon)
2. Educational Platforms: (How I will contact you) I will email students only through skyward every Wednesday and Thursday morning.
I will assist any ESE student with completing assignments through the use of e-mail communication as well as video tutorials associated with individual assignments.
Assignments will be assigned by your classroom teacher through their platform of choice i.e. Skyward, googleclassroom, Zoom etc.
If you need to speak to me by phone, please email me and leave a phone number and I'll be glad to return the call. Since I will be calling from my cell phone, my number will be blocked, but I'll return your phone call within 24 hours, during my phoning office hours which will be from 11:00 a.m - 12::00 p.m. (noon) and will resume at 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
All emails will be answered in a timely manner Monday - Friday 9:05 a.m. - 3:45 p.m. only.
Be patient with yourself and me while we venture into this new learning platform.
ESE Support Facilitation provides support and services which are based on an individual student’s needs and are reflected in their Individual Educational Plan (IEP). The Support Facilitator primarily works with small groups of students within the class. However, both the support facilitator and the general education teacher work with heterogeneous and flexible groups of students and are viewed as equal partners in the classroom. Support facilitation provides for collaborative planning, modeling, and coaching of effective strategies and implementation of accommodations to promote progress related to student’s IEP goals. Within the model, the level, frequency, and intensity of services varies based on student need and may include academic, independent functioning, behavioral and social/emotional support. The ESE Support Facilitator works in conjunction with school administrators, general education teachers, related service providers, and other support personnel to communicate and address the unique needs of students with disabilities.
