Admin wants to level our high schoolers into ELD 1, 2, and 3, which would mean mixing up freshmen and seniors...our staff is against it, but they are reacting to ELPA scores which, according to those who don't understand the strands, look abyssmal. I need some moral support here..,.,

I started dating a guy and thought he didn’t like me because he wasn’t making moves but turns out he just takes things slow and likes to be more sure before getting physical - is it sad that I didn’t know men still did that outside of really religious people? Who knew!! And he’s only 24. Wild.

For those of you who completed AOS, in your I-944, did you only include your income (assuming it was above 125% of poverty line)?
Or did you include all information of assets and liabilites too even though your income is greater than 125%?
The form is really confusing, not sure if I need to include both income and assets/liability. My income is >250% of poverty line.

Hey YC bowl, need my weekly talk down from going to law school. Inevitably facing yet another week of mostly enjoying what I do while somewhat tolerating certain aspects of consulting. Not totally unfulfilled not totally unhappy. Decent WLB. Just cannot shake this law school bug. Haven’t been able to for years. Sort of encroaching a point where I’m not sure I’m even headed in my career in terms of developing hard transferable skills. For example, I feel like I don’t have an actual vocation. Lol

Hi! I'm working on my annual goals. Has another done theirs and adjusted them to reflect the pandemic? How so? I asked in a couple of fora with Gen Ed teachers and they all mentioned Family Engagement and differentiation but that's already the bread and butter of what I do!

Looking for advice....I work in a school with very low ESL population and those that are ELL are English speakers. I have had a couple newcomers over the years, but mostly in the lower grades.

What do you think of the leveling? What would your instructional services look like for each level?
My students are mixed by level AND grade in my classes! I feel that having more homogenous levels would be more beneficial than by grade. Why do you think your staff is against mixing grades?
