Child Find - Early Identification

Children with special needs can often benefit from a number of therapies and, generally, the sooner they receive treatment, the better the outcomes will be. But, how do you know if a child needs help?

A Message to Saline Students..

The Trustees of the Board of Education support and value student engagement in Board meetings, and in the district overall. 

We would like to maintain a welcoming environment to any student who would like to listen in on our Board meetings, participate with staff in Showcase presentations, or speak in the public comment portion. All students are invited. 

To this end, we will prioritize and encourage students to comment first during public comment. We hope by creating this opportunity, students feel included and safe to express their feelings and ideas. We realize that some public comments can be upsetting to students and we will always work to enforce the professional procedures around public comment. After their comments, students can make their own choice to leave or stay for the rest of the meeting. 

Respectfully,

Board of Education, Saline Area Schools

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee holds 4th Meeting

Meeting #4 - May 8, 2019

Welcome & Introductions

Superintendent Graden introduced Amy Tesolin who has vast experience leading and facilitating discussions with various groups.

Ms. Tesolin introduced herself and explained her background. We spent some time discussing the importance of facilitation and consensus building.

  • You don’t have to 100% agree with a decision, but you need to be able to live by it.
  • It’s important to address conflict and discuss it.
  • We have to be open to the idea of building consensus
  • A facilitator’s role in consensus building would not be to chair the meeting, it would be to facilitate the process so everyone has a voice and is involved in the process
  • A facilitator helps manage the power dynamics in a group
Administrative Staffing Changes/Update for 2019-2020

SAS Community,

In preparation for the 2019-2020 school year, we recently announced several internal administrative transitions. 

Pleasant Ridge Elementary Principal

With the retirement of Kevin Musson, the Pleasant Ridge Principalship vacancy will be filled by current Harvest Elementary Principal Ms. Betty Rosen-Leacher.

Harvest Elementary Principal

The vacancy created by Ms. Rosen-Leacher's transfer will be filled by current Middle School Assistant Principal Ms. Emily Sickler.

Middle School Assistant Principal

The vacancy created by Ms. Emily Sickler's transfer will be filled by current Heritage School Assistant Principal Mr. Alex Schukow.

Heritage Assistant Principal

The vacancy created by Mr. Alex Schukow's transfer will be posted and filled as part of the certified staffing process later this spring.

We are very fortunate to have a talented and flexible leadership team.  This allows us to make transitions while maintaining continuity for staff & families.  In addition, we want to continue the positive momentum in place within the district.

The administrators will continue in their current roles for the remainder of the 2018-2019 school year. The changes will then formally take place over the summer, however, in June Ms. Rosen-Leacher & Ms. Sickler will schedule opportunities to meet families from their new buildings in anticipation of a smooth transition for Fall, 2019.

Have questions or feedback to share?  Let me know here - Let's Talk!

Thank you,

Scot Graden

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee holds 3rd Meeting

Meeting #3 - April 16, 2019
How do we help our students see themselves within stories they encounter in school?

WARM-UP
Windows, Mirrors, and More
Individually reflect on how you have seen yourself (or not seen yourself) in stories

In triads, take 10 minutes to discuss how you have seen yourself (or not seen yourself) in stories.  Further, discuss WHY it’s important to see self and others in the stories? Why might an individual from an underserved, oppressed group need a story to be a blanket or an escape hatch?
