Safety for all students and staff is a primary concern for everyone in Montgomery County Public Schools. Staff and students practice often so that they know what to do in the unlikely event there is an emergency. Watch this video to see how they do this and to understand the language around emergency preparedness such as lockdown, shelter, evacuate and parent/child reunification.

Please vote for Susan Byrne. For more information, see http://suebyrne.org Hello, I'm Susan Byrne, candidate for the Montgomery County Public School Board of Education, District 2. MCPS has a reputation as a world class school system. Yet there are clear signs that MCPS education has become increasingly restrictive and no longer effectively meets the needs of a significant number of our students. How do we know this? • Despite more than a decade of effort, and positive spin to the contrary, the achievement gap between white and non-white students persists because the majority of our students need something more than is currently offered through regular education. • 37% of our students are identified as gifted. They too require something more than is currently offered through regular education. And many require more than is currently offered through MCPS gifted education. • 12% of our students are identified as eligible for special education, but many more seek this because they require something more than is currently offered through regular education. And many require something more than is currently offered through MCPS special education. In 2009 members of the Board of Education reflected on their performance and leadership. As a result, they updated their core values and pledged (quote) "to do whatever it takes" to ensure the success of every student. Recognizing many failings alongside many strengths, that was the beginning of a candid self-assessment we must continue. But, we must still answer the question: "What does it take to ensure the success of every child, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, language proficiency, or ability?" Recently, Superintendent Joshua Starr's transition team sought input from many stakeholders who had concerns about important performance improvement needs. That was the beginning of a frank conversation that we must continue. One cornerstone performance issue that has yet to be addressed is special education. Lessons learned from special education can help us improve all aspects of MCPS. Imagine every MCPS school following these best practices: • A developmental, whole-child approach to education • Multidisciplinary teams who advocate for and track the success of each student • Respectful and honorable collaboration with students and their families • Teachers who know how each of their students learns best and who are proficient in gifted, multicultural, and special education • Multiple modes of learning to support the success of all students • Educational practices that foster peer learning and mentor relationships • Curriculum that disciplines thinking, promotes creative problem solving, and offers engaging, active learning and movement • Technology to afford every student a custom learning experience • Positive social, emotional, and behavioral support integrated throughout the program Yes, we have budget issues to address but that doesn't have to hold us back. MCPS has spent precious years locked in budget battles while schools around the world have produced better results for their students at less cost per capita than we do. We must make policy and funding decisions now that will empower us to do more with less and optimize the resources we have. Adding cost-benefit analysis to our toolkit will improve our decisions and enable us to target spending for maximum student benefit in regular education and in all special programs. As a member of the Board of Education I will work to improve MCPS education by means that better serve all students. We must fit programs to students, not students to programs. We must consolidate the myriad initiatives of the district into a single focused vision with a clear plan of action to enable and empower our schools to give EVERY child their wish: to learn. I'm Susan Byrne, candidate for the Montgomery County Public School Board of Education, District 2. I thank you for your consideration and I invite you to learn more at my website: SueByrne.org

http://www.Facebook.com/MayorTommyBattle Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle talks about creating more jobs. One of the toughest things about being mayor is talking to someone that has lost or can't find a job. Starting in late 2008, America entered into some of the darkest economic days we've ever faced. Unemployment has been incredibly high. Job growth nationally has been stagnant. Families are struggling to put food on the table. We haven't been immune, but we have been blessed -- and it's important for me to again say thank goodness we're in Huntsville, Alabama. Being in Huntsville, however, isn't enough. Talking about our past successes isn't enough. Talking about our past successes doesn't put our citizens to work. That's why today we're here to talk about JOBS and OUR plan to put more of our residents to work. I can't emphasize enough that these past few years have been the toughest we as a country have faced in generations -- but we've been working every day to diversify our workforce, to protect the jobs we have -- and to build for the future. Our plan to move Huntsville forward includes a strong focus on jobs. You may have seen recently that for April 2012 Huntsville's unemployment rate was 5.7% -- just one year ago our city was at 7.2%. We are moving forward -- but we still have work to do. Among the things we are working to do are: - Diversifying our economy by recruiting new businesses to our city focused on high growth areas like Cyber Security, Energy and Geospatial technology. But we also plan to keep and grow the local businesses we have -- like Arora Technologies -- where we are today, by continuing to provide one of the world's most educated workforces. Huntsville has more degreed professionals than almost any other community in the world. Many of those professionals are here today because of NASA and Marshall Space Flight Center and I want to talk directly to those workers for a moment. - We have fought for you before and we will keep fighting for you to ensure that you have a mission -- and that the greatest brain trust every assembled continues to ensure that America remains second to none. - We've also fought to keep research dollars at our institutions of higher education, like UAHuntsville. Those research dollars are crucial to us because they help generate LOCAL jobs with GLOBAL impact. We've also made it a priority to attract and keep young professionals in our community -- and we've succeeded in doing just that. - The 2010 census shows a fifteen percent increase in the number of young professionals in our community. And now that they are here, we intend to put them to good use. Our plan for jobs includes: - Working with area educational institutions to provide workforce training alongside established professionals in mentoring and job training programs. I've also tasked Michelle Jordan, our Director of Economic Development, with working with the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber of Commerce to create a citywide and eventually a regional job-creation program that matches unemployed and underemployed workers with our local businesses. And our local businesses, our small businesses, our startups, our mom and pop shops are not forgotten in our plan. Over the past 3.5 years I've been proud and honored to take part in more than hundreds of ribbon cuttings in our community. Those local businesses are the truth life-breath of our city. They provide our tax dollars. They provide our business licenses. They provide jobs -- and our job is to make sure they have a streamlined process for doing business with our city. - That's why we are working to finish the job we've started in creating a one stop shop for doing business with the City of Huntsville. We have worked to keep our sales tax the lowest in the state among the other major cities in Alabama and will continue to keep them that way. Birmingham and Montgomery both have sales tax rates that are at or above 10%. We are holding steady at 8% because we are committed as an administration to doing more with less, being fiscally responsible and living within our means. Families do the same every day -- and our government will not be any different. Our plan isn't easy -- but it's achievable. It's achievable because of companies like Toyota, that just last week announced a major expansion that will bring nearly 200 jobs to our city. It's achievable because of people like Charlie and Sasha Sealy that are not only helping move our city forward with the Belk Hudson Lofts project, but putting people to work building it, helping keep our young professionals here and looking at other projects that will help improve our city. Visit our website below or call Campaign Headquarters at 256-217-4420 and help us Keep Moving Huntsville Forward. http://www.TommyBattle.com/ http://www.Facebook.com/MayorTommyBattle http://www.Twitter.com/TommyBattle http://www.Pinterest.com/planetforward/mayor-tommy-battle/

School Safety Partners introduces "Safe Topics: The First 30 Seconds," an advanced rapid response training and evaluation system to prepare all school employees to make life-and-death decisions in the first moments of any school crisis. The multimedia learning system -- complete with trainer guides, evaluation tools, video scenarios, and workbooks for over 30 crisis scenarios -- is available to schools, first responders, and community stakeholders as part of "hands on" live trainings, facilitated by Visionbox Learning. Developed by world-renowned school safety expert Michael Dorn, "Safe Topics: The First 30 Seconds" is built on effective concepts that have been used in training law enforcement, fire service, emergency medical personnel, pilots and military personnel for many years. For the first time, these training concepts have been adapted for handling school crises, during which a delay of even five or ten seconds can result in mass casualties. Presented in 2011 to lawmakers and school safety directors at the Colorado State Capitol, the techniques used in "The First 30 Seconds" on audience members made clear that responding to school incidents requires a level of training that goes beyond drafting safety plans. Simulations conducted at schools around the nation revealed that most school employees unfamiliar with specialized training in rapid response miss at least one critical action step per scenario, such as initiating an evacuation, calling the main office, or dialing 911. For example, more than 70% of school employees participating in simulations failed to implement a lockdown for an aggressor with a weapon such as a knife, crow bar or hammer. According to Dorn, attacks with weapons other than firearms are far more common and can be just as deadly, and schools cannot afford to overlook any gap in preparedness. The video scenarios for "The First 30 Seconds" allow school employees to practice making life-and-death decisions in ways not possible with other types of drills and exercises. Using the Visionbox Learning version of the program, which includes exclusive guidance on interoperable communications with first responders, schools can practice for a wider array of situations in a shorter period of time, and quickly build what Dorn calls a "decision-making knowledge base." About Michael Dorn Michael Dorn is one of the top school safety experts in the world and is a popular writer, speaker, and media commentator on prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery strategies for K-12 and Higher Ed. At the national level, Dorn is called upon by states to train school districts and turn around persistently dangerous schools. Dorn serves as Executive Director for Safe Havens International, a global non-profit school safety center. He has authored and co-authored 25 books on school safety. His work has taken him throughout the United States, and to Central America, Canada, Europe, South Africa, Asia and the Middle East. A former Chief of Police for the Bibb County, Georgia School System and School Safety Specialist for the Georgia Emergency Management Agency, Office of the Governor, Dorn has been a full-time school safety practitioner for nearly forty years. Dorn is regularly interviewed by major media organizations including NPR, 20/20, CNN, Good Morning America, ABC, NBC, CBS, Time Magazine, The New York Times, The Times of London, Univision and Tokyo Broadcasting. About School Safety Partners School Safety Partners is the largest online resource promoting partnerships, funding, grants, and pilot programs for school safety planning, technology, training, drills, exercises, and evaluations. School Safety Partners is dedicated to creating long-term funding partnerships to support school safety best practices. We are both a community of interest and a facilitator of joint research projects, reaching out to the general public as well as stakeholders in the public, private, non-profit, and academic sectors. Our purpose is to create a space for stakeholders where true partnering can occur in order to make school safety sustainable beyond Federal funding. Since our start in January, 2008, our projects have addressed the legislative, training, compliance, funding, and public awareness sides of school safety. This year, we were awarded a major grant from the Panasonic 3D Innovation Center in support of our efforts to produce and distribute immersive simulation-based school safety training systems. We are working with Safe Havens International to distribute "The First 30 Seconds" and expand the program to include modules on crisis communications. These modules are designed to teach school safety teams what to say in the first 30 seconds, the first 5 minutes, and the first half-hour of a school emergency.

http://www.lpainc.com/design/portfolio/k-12-schools Join School Designer Wendy Rogers as she interviews Principal Victor Tapia, Superintendent Ed Brand, Board President Pearl Quinones, and students from Montgomery Middle School at the Groundbreaking of their new $20 million facility. The project involves demolishing existing buildings and constructing a two-story, 16-classroom structure with spaces for a library, counseling center, Associated Student Body (ASB), and cafeteria. The building will total 45,200 square feet in space. If constructed as planned, the new Montgomery Middle School will be the first LEED Platinum public middle school facility in the state of California. The new school building will exceed state energy efficiency standards by almost 40 percent. Additionally, designers incorporated a number of environmentally friendly finish materials, carpeting with recycled content, linoleum flooring made of rapidly renewable resources, and low-emitting adhesives, paints, and finish coatings. The campus will use low-flow restroom fixtures and landscaped bioswales that will treat storm-water runoff before it is released off site. Landscaping will include drought-resistant native plants, allowing for more efficient irrigation systems. In addition, light-colored roofing and outdoor surfaces will reduce the heat-island effect by reflecting sunlight and heat. Once complete, the school will have plenty of shaded outdoor spaces, allowing teachers to easily take their classes outside. In addition, indoor architectural spaces will allow for academic displays, allowing teachers and students to connect what they learn in the classroom to what they see in the hallways and corridors. Each classroom will be equipped with a CO2 sensor, which will monitor the amount of oxygen in each room and adjust air circulation as needed. If teachers and students are not receiving the appropriate amount of oxygen, the sensors will automatically start HVAC systems to allow more fresh air into the room. Classroom technology will include digital projectors and interactive whiteboards. Additionally, plans call for ceilings and walls designed of sound absorbent materials and HVAC systems built to minimize distracting noises and vibrations.

During the October, 2011, meeting the Rockville Chamber of Commerce met at Montgomery Community Media to discuss the impact of Maryland's broadband initiatives on Montgomery County with Howard County Executive Ken Ulman. Howard County Executive Ken Ulman is serving his second term as county executive and was recently elected as President of the Board of Directors for Maryland Association of Counties (MACo) - an organization that makes sure Maryland's 23 counties and the City of Baltimore are heard when decisions are made in the state's capital. Nothing is more indicative of this commitment to leadership and economic development than his attention to technology, and more specifically, affordable and accessible broadband for the State of Maryland. Last year, the federal government awarded Maryland more than $115 million in stimulus money through the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program. It is the only grant of its kind in the country, because it will connect an entire state, from Garrett County to Worcester County, and everyplace in between. When finished, the Inter-County Broadband Network will connect hundreds of public schools, libraries, public safety agencies, community colleges, and other government institutions. That means the technology will be in place for better emergency management, enhanced education and improved health care. The process was a long and arduous one, but the benefits, opportunity, and innovation this broadband project provides are numerous. There's no one better to tell you more about it than the Howard County Executive himself.

Do you enjoy helping others? Have you wanted to start a career in healthcare, but don't have the time or money to go to school? If so, then becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant could be your ticket to a long and rewarding career in healthcare! HIRED has partnered with Adult Basic Education and Hennepin Technical College to provide a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) training for people of all ages and income levels. The healthcare industry is one of the fastest growing industries in Minnesota today, and Nursing Assistant positions have many benefits. They offer flexible schedule, highly transferable skills, and have great growth potential. But most importantly, Nursing Assistants get to know their patients on a day-to-day basis and get to make a real impact on their lives! This program is part of the Minnesota FastTRAC initiative, which is designed to provide low-cost, high quality training to quickly move into a career. In just two months you can earn 4 college credits from Hennepin Technical College and CNA certification on the Minnesota Nursing Assistant Registry. Throughout the training you will receive personalized job counseling and attend career development workshops with HIRED staff that will help you land employment in the field. Upon successful completion of the Integrated CNA class, students will attend a career fair sponsored by HIRED that allows them to get valuable face time and begin applications with a variety of local healthcare employers. There are two entrance points to get started with the program and move into the Integrated CNA class. Student reading scores are assessed, and based on outcomes, either apply directly through HIRED or are referred to a pre-CNA class first.

The army of autonomous robotic enforcers have descended upon America to bolster the bankers reign. - INFOWARS Even with Fire and Forget Weapons (Al Jones' words autonomous robots) whoever deployed or launched it is the operator, pilot or driver of that DRONE or robotic system. Most are easily taken out QUIETLY & INVISIBLY by using EMP generated by a High Power MASER to paint the system deployed by the ENEMY COMBATANT in question i.e. NWO, TSA, FEMA , IRS etc. Put foil in your microwave oven and watch it arc and spark Nikola Telsa fans! ;) Sorry Harley Davidson and 2nd Amendment fans, you give yourselves away the split second you either kick start or pull the trigger! Reverse azimuth and triangulation. You need a weapon that dispatches the hostile invader at NEAR LIGHT SPEED so it would be like the Sun exploding, no warning and you never saw it coming! This makes it so the Drone can't cry home to mama like the Microsoft operating system does the moment you connect your PC on-line. James Bond and the Man From U.N.C.L.E. prefers to use a silencer or a BMW motorcycle. ;) I wish Al Jones would call the damned things what they really are since he can't lay off the Star Wars background music during his Nightly News and call them all what they really are, DROIDS! @ Al Jones a:P Everything that you need to know about Chemtrails; Manned & Unmanned (DRONE) Aerosol Biological and Chemical Weapon Platforms to be used on any public, anywhere; at Large. Note: All Militarized Airborne Aerosol Deployment System Platforms are always intended to KILL something or someone!!! BE INFORMED: Never trust any Japanese Beatles or moths flying through an open door or window This New World Order truly isn't science fiction. If you can see and detect it with your naked eye, than you can be assured that what you're seeing is old school Vietnam Era technology. Alex Jones lays in heavy on Bird Flu and the New World orders heavy handed methods of exploiting genetically re-engineered weapons grade pathogens such as Bird Flu, the Super Flu and Mouse Pox!!! This is a frightening composite with some very hideous and disturbing graphic images of children resulting from the United States Military use of Aerosol Distribution or Chemtrails. DON'T SAY I DIDN'T WARN YOU!!!! Federal Aviation Regulations Sec. 91.119 — Minimum safe altitudes: General. Except when necessary for takeoff or landing, no person may operate an aircraft below the following altitudes: (a) Anywhere. An altitude allowing, if a power unit fails, an emergency landing without undue hazard to persons or property on the surface. (b) Over congested areas. Over any congested area of a city, town, or settlement, or over any open air assembly of persons, an altitude of 1,000 feet above the highest obstacle within a horizontal radius of 2,000 feet of the aircraft. (c) Over other than congested areas. An altitude of 500 feet above the surface, except over open water or sparsely populated areas. In those cases, the aircraft may not be operated closer than 500 feet to any person, vessel, vehicle, or structure. (d) Helicopters, powered parachutes, and weight-shift-control aircraft. If the operation is conducted without hazard to persons or property on the surface— (1) A helicopter may be operated at less than the minimums prescribed in paragraph (b) or (c) of this section, provided each person operating the helicopter complies with any routes or altitudes specifically prescribed for helicopters by the FAA; and (2) A powered parachute or weight-shift-control aircraft may be operated at less than the minimums prescribed in paragraph (c) of this section.

30,000 ARMED DRONES to be used Against Americans - Payed for with your TAX Dollars (Infowars) The Federal Aviation Administration has allowed several police departments to use armed drones with non-lethal weapons across the United States. The U.S. government announced that 30,000 drones would be spying on Americans domestically. CBS DC has now reported that the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office in Texas "is considering using rubber bullets and tear gas on its drone." Chief Deputy Randy McDaniel of the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office in Texas told The Daily that his department is considering using rubber bullets and tear gas on its drone. The drones are controlled from a remote location and use infrared sensors and high-resolution cameras. The use of potential force from drones has raised the ire of the American Civil Liberties Union."It's simply not appropriate to use any of force, lethal or non-lethal, on a drone," Catherine Crump, staff attorney for the ACLU, told CBS DC. FACTS & FIGURES In February, Congress passed the FAA Re-authorization Act and by 2015 regulations and testing will begin and by 2020 upwards of 30,000 projected drones will be flying over Americans. Random Access Talk Over 30 prominent civil rights groups in the U.S. have rounded on the FAA and demanded that it reconsider the legislation and hold a rule-making session to address privacy and safety threats. RT The February bill has sparked fears among Americans that their civil liberties may be under threat. RT American police officers may soon be able to use unmanned aircraft not only for surveillance, but also for offensive action. The drones may be equipped to fire rubber rounds and tear gas. "Those are things that law enforcement utilizes day in and day out, and in certain situations it might be advantageous to have this type of system on the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle)," Chief Deputy Randy McDaniel of the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office in Texas told The Daily news app as he outlined the possible development. The US military and CIA have used drones armed with lethal weapons to target militants overseas for years. The prospect of having "lite" versions of those remotely controlled killer-machines circling over America gave some second thoughts to rights groups. "It's simply not appropriate to use any force, lethal or non-lethal, on a drone," Catherine Crump, staff attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), told CBSDC. She explained that an officer operating an armed drone from afar would simply not have the same understanding of a situation that an officer on location would have. So judgment on the use of force would be limited by this narrowness of observation. "An officer at a remote location far away does not have the same level of access," she explained. ACLU is also worried about the general atmosphere of pervasive surveillance that may engulf America as the use of drone technology becomes wider. "We don't need a situation where Americans feel there is an invisible eye in the sky," said Jay Stanley, senior policy analyst at ACLU. "The prospect of people out in public being Tased or targeted by force by flying drones where no officer is physically present on the scene," Crump added, "raises the prospect of unconstitutional force being used on individuals." There are other potential threats of a wide fleet of armed drones operating in a country. For instance, their communication is not tamper-proof, as the recent downing of an American spy drone by Iran showed. So malignant hackers may take over control of a police UAV and use it for nefarious ends. The US Federal Aviation Administration allowed several public safety agencies to use drones domestically with fewer restrictions last week. UAVs weighting up to 11.3 kilos can now be operated by police, fire and similar departments without special approval. The step moves forward a campaign for broader use of drones in America, which was launched by Congress in mid-February. tags: armed drones sky america military pilot robot aircraft kill killing people human technology future money federal government swat tax tech police department weapon lethal gun air force predator fly report news 2012 united states u.s. freedom police state economy dollar dollars usd surveillance bilderberg bank banker cash enemy war ww3 system internet track politics tyranny microchip spy big brother nwo new world order illuminati trend trends agenda 21 zion zionist wake up truth

We will start with the critical question posed by the brilliant scholar and social critic, bell hooks. We will then take a look at some specific controversies vis-?-vis gender and homophobia. Has homophobia and femiphobia (fear of women) hurt the Black Liberation struggle?

Community Lunch Panel Dartmouth Alumni of the Civil Rights Movement Thursday, January 19 12 noon--1:30 pm, Collis Common Ground William Burton '65, Roger Daly '67, Dirk DeRoos '68, and Paul Stetzer '67 share their experiences as activists working in the voter registration effort of the civil rights movement. Facilitated by Denise Anthony, Associate Professor of Sociology and Research Director, Institute for Security, Technology, and Society, Dartmouth College. 1965 DAM article on Dartmouth students, including some of these speakers, who were engaging in civil rights activism Speaker Bios Associate Professor of Sociology Denise Anthony, former Chair (2007--11) of the Sociology Department, currently serves as Research Director of Dartmouth's Institute for Security, Technology, and Society and as a Faculty Affiliate with the Center for Health Policy Research at The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice. Her research interests include collective action and trust, economic sociology, and the sociology of health care. Deeply moved by the Montgomery bus boycott and the Greensboro sit-ins, William Burton '65 participated in 1964 in voter registration work in the Mississippi Summer Project followup. This experience influenced him to remain actively involved in politics throughout his life. In 1991 he ran for and was elected as Town Supervisor of Ossining, New York. Though retiring after three two-year terms, he returned to political service in 2005 upon his election as a Westchester County Legislator. Outside of politics, Mr. Burton's career has included working and owning his own businesses in the publishing and printing industries in New York City. Roger Daly '67 met Martin Luther King Jr. in 1962 when King spent a week at Groton teaching classes. Strongly influenced by this experience, he later joined the Civil Rights Movement as a volunteer field worker for SNCC in the Mississippi Delta and Selma, Alabama. During this time he was beaten twice and was jailed for standing on the courthouse sidewalk while accompanying Selma residents seeking to register to vote. An ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, Reverend Daly has been a pastoral minister for 41 years. He received his M.Div. from Gordon-Conwell Theological School and his M.Ed. in clinical psychology from the University of New Hampshire. Dirk DeRoos '68 spent most of the first months of his freshman year not in Hanover, but in Neshoba County, Mississippi. He recalls this experience participating in civil rights work as being both defining and transformational. After graduating from Dartmouth, he earned his J.D. at Indiana University. He then went on active duty as an Army officer with the field artillery before entering private practice. Mr. DeRoos is currently a partner in the Denver office of the international law firm of Faegre Baker Daniels. His courtroom experience, in state and federal court at the trial and appellate levels, often involves claims under Title VII, the ADEA, the ADA, federal and state civil rights and pay statutes, and ERISA. His experience in Mississippi with the DCU influenced Paul Stetzer '67 to become involved not only in the Civil Rights Movement but also in anti-poverty, anti-war, environmental, and women's and gay rights movements. His career in education has included work with the pre-school anti-poverty program Get Set (while there, he helped found a labor union for that organization's workers), as an environmental educator at the Schuylkill Valley Nature Center, and as a teacher of environmental science at the Germantown Friends School. He has more recently turned to documentary photography with a continuing project entitled "Democracy Is Coming."
