Dear Del Amigo Community,
Thank you for a wonderful Back to School Night last night! The staff and I really enjoyed being able to spend time with you. This month, while it is not over yet, has been very busy. We have much to celebrate as the changes we have made in our philosophy have helped our students focus on their learning. For years, Del Amigo existed as a credit recovery school and while our charge is still the same, we are much more focused on creating an Alternative Learning Environment that supports student learning. Here is our vision of Del Amigo:
Del Amigo will be a 21st Century Alternative Learning Facility that is innovative, creative, tech ready, project based, Common Core infused, models PLC tenants, meets the needs of the individual student as well as the whole while developing Rigor, Relevance and Relationships.
In order to accomplish the vision, here are some of the changes we have instituted:
A new grading system – we are helping our students focus on their academic achievement by attaching the amount of credit to the grade earned. Students are not allowed to fail – they are given alternative assignments in order to show/demonstrate mastery over a specific skill or concept.
Homework - We recognize that in the post-secondary or job market; our students will need to work beyond their scheduled work hours. We need to help our student master this necessary skill. To that end, all teachers will be providing homework each quarter. This homework, if completed with 70% accuracy will be worth an additional .5 credit per class.
Homework can consist of:
Progress Reports – These bi-weekly reports help each student control, understand and appreciate their credits, graduation status, and classes needed. Students can track their grades/credit progress and meet with their Advisory teachers each Wednesday to discuss their progress and the options/choices for their success. Please make sure to ask your student for this report!
We have seen a remarkable change in our students as they start to take control of their learning and plan for their future success. The typical Del Amigo student did not see much success when attending a traditional high school, what we see now is that the Del Amigo student has a direction and working on a vision of who they want to be once they complete high school!
To gain a better understanding of Del Amigo, I would encourage you to visit our web site at www.dahs.srvusd.net or, please feel free to contact me. email@example.com
As always, we appreciate your support.
