From 2000... In 1954, the Supreme Court handed down a unanimous decision stating that segregation in public schools was inherently unconstitutional and that all jurisdictions must integrate with deliberate speed. Montgomery County moved swiftly toward that end. This program investigates how MCPS implemented desegregation and presents reminiscences by former teachers and students who were there.

Root cause analysis is a powerful method schools use to analyze data to solve problems; it aims to identify and correct the root causes of problems or events, rather than simply addressing their symptoms. In this interactive REL Mid-Atlantic webinar, Roni S. Silverstein, principal of Fallsmead Elementary School in Montgomery County, Maryland, and a skilled practitioner of root cause analysis, describes the use of the method and responds to questions from participants.

Our mission in the Kenton County School District is to ensure that every student is prepared for the global work market. As a System focused on providing Excellence in Instruction, and Student and Business Engagement, we are leading the region in initiatives designed to ensure that all students graduate prepared for college or a career. This is our third year with the Kenton County Academies of Innovation and Technology (KCAIT), a program designed to ensure 100% of students participating are college and career ready. The Kenton County School District has set high expectations for our students. The Common Core Academic Standards are a set of standards in reading, writing, speaking, listening and mathematics. The new standards, which have been adopted by most states across the United States, focus on mastery of content at a particular grade level and include very little repetition of content from one year to the next. The district will also begin the fourth year of implementation with the Spring Board curriculum, focusing on refinement and enhanced instructional planning and support. The innovative Professional Practices Rubric (PPR) lends further support and focus to our instructional staff throughout the school year. Furthermore, our district team will continue to support the work of teachers throughout the year, within the classroom, through a continuation grant funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. In fact, the Literacy and Math Design Collaborative (LDC and MDC) work will expand and grow in both middle and high schools. This school district is committed to providing quality instruction, active student engagement and developing and maintaining strong relationships with our parents and business partners. Currently, Kenton County has 76 National Board Certified teachers. You have selected an excellent school district for your child’s education and I look forward to our partnership preparing these students for their productive futures.

ELLICOTT CITY, MD – Howard County Executive Allan H. Kittleman honored the first class of Project SEARCH interns who have successfully completed their assignments in county government offices. Project SEARCH is an initiative to support employment skills and opportunities for youth with disabilities in their final year of school. During the course of this school year, participants took part in three, 10-week internships covering a wide variety of career paths to help them transition to the workplace. “This is an impressive group of young people and they have much to contribute to their community,” said Kittleman. ”I am proud that county government is leading the way by demonstrating that all people have abilities when they are supported and given the chance. This program is a critical way to help build bright futures and independence for these individuals.” Howard County departments including Inspections, Licenses and Permits, Public Works, Planning and Zoning, Central Services, Recreation and Parks, and Citizen Services hosted the dozen interns. These young people contributed through various office functions of scanning, filing and data entry, stocking and inventorying supplies, and cleaning and general maintenance, as well as learning apprentice skills as an electrician. "The best part of being in Project SEARCH is the jobs,” said Matthew L. Higgs, a 20-year-old intern from Clarksville, MD, about his roles in the County mailroom, County Council office and Bureau of Facilities this year. “It is great working with Howard County Government. It will help me get the skills to find a job." Higgs is one of the participants who completed this first class, along with: • Terence Dwight Butler, Jr. • Amanda Marein Gartside • Alfredo Graciano, Jr. • Russell Grumbine • Amanda Mary Jacober • Alexandra Elizabeth McIntyre • Dana Michaela Murray • Jane Suh • Sanjay Variyam • Daniel Haldeman White • Jacob Michael Yelnosky “I am so excited to complete a successful first year of this program. Everyone involved helped make it a reality and I look forward to taking this initial experience forward to the next class,” said Kim McKay, Program Manager of Project SEARCH for the Arc of Howard County. “It means so much to the futures of these young people to have this opportunity.” In addition to family members and worksite mentors, Kittleman was joined today by Howard County Public School System and other officials in recognizing the interns. “Thanks to Project SEARCH Howard County the interns gain marketable job skills, work-based coaching; and an increased sense of confidence enabling them to pursue competitive employment.” said Carol Beatty, Secretary of the Maryland Department of Disabilities, who helped launch the program while Executive Director of The Arc of Howard County. She went on to say, "It takes a team to ensure this transition program works-from the instructional aspects to the funding to the workplace experience. We are fortunate to have brought together these key pieces to benefit both future members of the workforce and future employers." Project SEARCH is a partnership of the Howard County Public School System (HCPSS), The Arc of Howard County, the Howard County Autism Society, and the Maryland Division of Rehabilitation Services (DORS). The program is funded mainly through private grants to the Arc of Howard County from The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation and the Lisa Higgins Hussman Foundation, state-funded DORS initiatives and is staffed by a combination of two Arc and two HCPSS employees. A typical day for the interns involved an hour of class time with a HCPSS instructor, followed by work-site training and experience with a designated supervisor and mentor at their internship assignment. Planning and selections are already underway for the 2015-2016 class of interns to begin in the Fall. About Project SEARCH http://www.projectsearch.us/ Developed at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in 1996, Project SEARCH is housed at over 400 sites across a dozen countries. Among the nine Project SEARCH hosts in Maryland are: Anne Arundel Medical Center, BWI Hilton and Aloft Hotels, Montgomery County Government, National Institutes of Health Clinical Center, University of Maryland, University of Maryland Medical Center and Union Memorial Hospital.

New college and career readiness standards emphasize writing in the classroom for all students. Students are required to write routinely for long and short periods across a range of tasks. And with students using computers at an earlier age, we need to consider if technology can help them meet classroom demands. Your district needs a process to evaluate writing issues for students with disabilities. Unfortunately, many districts don’t have a systematic way to do this. Author Dr. Denise DeCoste joins us to share her research on the subject and walk us through her new DeCoste Writing Protocol (an important update to her original book, Assistive Technology Assessment: Developing a Written Productivity Profile, first published in 2004). The formative assessment tool helps educators identify factors affecting an individual student’s ability to produce writing. The Writing Protocol compares a child’s individual performance across handwriting and keyboarding tasks. It examines spelling performance and writing skills so educators make more informed decisions about instructional strategies and the appropriate use of technology to meet classroom demands. Invite your team to join us and learn how you can use the new DeCoste Writing Protocol to make sure your students have access to the tools they need to support their writing! And please remember... If you own the 2004 edition, it’s time to retire it—updated research, updated protocol! To learn more about the DeCoste Writing Protocol, please visit http://donjohnston.com/decoste-writing-protocol/ About the Presenter: Dr. Denise DeCoste is an occupational therapist and a special educator with over 25 years of experience in the field of assistive technology (AT). For 22 years, she was an assistive technology team leader for the Montgomery County Maryland Public Schools (InterACT and HIAT Teams). Recently, she was the governor appointed chair of the Maryland UDL Task Force. Denise is the author of three books on assistive technology. She presents at national conferences and lectures regularly in school districts across the country on AT related topics.

MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) There's an effort to change Alabama state law so drivers caught by bus cameras not stopping for the stop signs can be ticketed. Footage captured through a pilot program in the state shows in one example, a driver nearly hitting children as they exited the bus. "It was a very close call," said Mobile County Public School Transportation Director Pat Mitchell. Mobile County demoed the program on just two of its buses, and in the first two months, Mitchell says there were more than 43 violators. Parent Glen Perry can believe it. His home surveillance system captured a car nearly hitting his children as they walked to the bus one morning. "It scares me," said Perry, "All it takes is a split second to run over a child and kill them." Four routes run through Perry's neighborhood, and every week he sees drivers doing the same thing. "They just ignore it, figure I don't have to stop and just blow right through the signs," said Perry. "I would like to see the cameras on the school bus arms," said Alabama State Representative Margie Wilcox. Wilcox says she will work to make that a reality this legislative session. She plans to introduce legislation that allows law enforcement to issue citations based on clear violations captured with bus cameras. "I've got some dear friends that are bus drivers. They tell me that every day, every day, not just occasionally, every day there's a driver that disregards the arm. It scares them to death," said Wilcox. Here's the way it works: A private company, in this case Force Multiplier Solutions, equips and maintains the technology on the buses for free. When violations occur, the company pulls the video and DMV information, an officer reviews it, and a citation is issued. Mitchell says the company, the school system, and jurisdiction where the violation occurred receive a portion of the fine. "So that's a big plus for taxpayers, not having to purchase these types of cameras," said Mitchell, "This is a win-win for the school system." Force Multiplier Solutions says it has outfitted numerous districts in the country with bus cameras, including buses in Dallas, Texas. A representative for the company says in just two years 70,000 tickets were issued there. "I'm all for it. If you're going to put my child or anyone else's child, an innocent child in danger, then you deserve to be ticketed," said Perry. Rep. Wilcox says some of the details about how the fines would be distributed still need to be worked out, but she hopes it will pass this session. We will keep you updated and let you know what happens.

Body worn cameras are a relatively new technology being adopted by several police departments across the United States. Here in Montgomery County the police department has been researching the use of body cameras and has developed a plan for a pilot program to be launched this summer. Officials say some recent high profile cases have brought the issue of police conduct into the spotlight, and cameras may be a way to protect both officers and citizens.

In “Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis” (Simon & Schuster, 2015), political scientist Robert Putnam illustrates the increasing inequality between rich and poor Americans over recent decades through empirical evidence and evocative narratives. On Monday, AEI hosted Robert Putnam, Charles Murray, and William Julius Wilson in a discussion moderated by Robert Doar to debate the implications of these trends for American children. Putnam described evidence over the last 40 years that demonstrates a growing gap between the upper third of American society, those with a college degree, and the lower third, those with only a high school diploma. Due to 20th century trends in social capital, income inequality, political consensus, union membership, and share of wealth, America, as Putnam declared, has become “two separate societies.” Is a change in public policy the solution to closing the opportunity gap? Murray declared, “A civic great awakening has about as much of a chance of working as policy.” Genes, shared environment, and non-shared environment are all significant factors in how our children develop; yet shared environment, Murray suggested, seems to be the least impactful. Although Wilson agreed with Putnam’s argument, he emphasized the importance of focusing on interracial income disparities. Wilson also strongly argued that it is unjust that a child’s race and parental income can predict his or her future. Putnam, Murray, and Wilson concluded that the American Dream is, in fact, in crisis. However, the solution may call for more than a change in policy. — Jane Brady Knight Event Description In his new book, “Our Kids: The American Dream in Crisis” (Simon & Schuster, 2015), Robert Putnam describes an America that is increasingly separate and unequal along class lines: Children from wealthy families enjoy the benefits of stable two-parent families who invest heavily in their development, deep and positive social networks, and a knowledge economy. Poor and working-class kids, however, increasingly navigate broken families, the absence of adult role models, and an economy with fewer well-paying jobs for those with low levels of education. And more and more, the two groups don’t mix. To what extent is this analysis of opportunity in America correct and cause for concern? What role do culture and public policy play in these trends? And how should individuals, community members, and policymakers respond?

In 2005, the US Supreme Court took on the most important property rights case in the history of our country. The Kelo case pitted homeowners in New London, CT against city officials who wanted to use the power of eminent domain to redevelop the area in the hope of creating jobs and increasing tax revenues. The homeowners resisted, arguing that eminent domain power should only be used for public projects like roads and schools. Ultimately, however, the Court upheld the city's right to turn over the homeowners' property to private land developers. Since that ruling, the use of eminent domain to transfer property from one private owner to another private owner has increased dramatically. The controversial Kelo v. New London decision sparked a nation-wide debate about the importance of property rights that continues today. Eminent Domain tells the real-life stories of three Americans fighting to prevent their property from being taken in the name of redevelopment.

Mayor Muriel Bowser - joined by Department of Transportation (DDOT) Director Leif Dormsjo, the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) and other city officials - releases the “Vision Zero” Action Plan - the District’s s plan to eliminate fatalities and serious injuries to people walkers, bikers and drivers by 2024. “Vision Zero is our strategic roadmap to eliminate fatalities and injuries on District streets by 2024,” said Mayor Bowser. “But this is just the first step. Now that we have a smart plan, we will make the necessary changes to our street network so that residents, workers and visitors can safely navigate our great city.” The Vision Zero Action Plan is the result of an extensive planning process involving 30 government agencies, community groups and residents. The plan places a high priority on making safety improvements and refining how the city monitors and addresses hazardous street conditions. During the planning process, residents reported more than 4,500 hazardous locations. Those sites can now be mapped along with historical crash data to inform the District’s engineering, education, and enforcement efforts. The Action Plan was released at 10th and Maryland Avenue NE, where earlier this year DDOT installed a new traffic signal and other safety features to help families cross the street to access School Within School, a DCPS public school. From the beginning of this year through December 10, 24 people have lost their lives in traffic crashes. The Action Plan outlines the strategies, timeframes, and agencies responsible for implementing programs to improve traffic safety regardless of where or how travelers move throughout the District. The plan serves as the playbook for the first years of the initiative and incorporates legislative and regulatory proposals already released by the Administration. The District joins a growing list of U.S. cities that have formally committed to goal of zero traffic fatalities, as well as over 230 other communities that have signed onto the U.S. Secretary of Transportation’s Mayors’ Challenge for Safer People and Safer Streets. The initiative aims to improve pedestrian and bicycle transportation safety by showcasing effective local actions, empowering local leaders to take action, and promoting partnerships to advance pedestrian and bicycle safety.

What really causes addiction — to everything from cocaine to smart-phones? And how can we overcome it? Johann Hari has seen our current methods fail firsthand, as he has watched loved ones struggle to manage their addictions. He started to wonder why we treat addicts the way we do — and if there might be a better way. As he shares in this deeply personal talk, his questions took him around the world, and unearthed some surprising and hopeful ways of thinking about an age-old problem.

Mayor Muriel Bowser, District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) Chancellor Kaya Henderson and Howard University President Dr. Wayne A.I. Frederick announce a new partnership aimed at providing expanded learning opportunities and advanced college preparation for high school students. Beginning school year 2015-2016, 12th-grade students at Banneker and McKinley Technology high schools will have the opportunity to enroll in college courses at Howard University and earn high school and college credit. Students will have access to undergraduate course offerings and can take up to two courses per semester and one course during the summer session. The University will waive all tuition and fees; the Office of the State Superintendent of Education will cover the cost of books and transportation. “Our young people deserve and desire more opportunities that will expand their academic horizons and put them on a pathway to the middle class,” said Mayor Bowser. “This new program is an excellent example of a public-private partnership that looks to the future of this city with optimism and hope. Students will gain valuable experiences that will propel them to greater heights and accelerate their path to the college and career of their dreams.” To be eligible for the dual-enrollment program, students must have a minimum 3.0 GPA and submit a personal essay and a recommendation letter from their school’s principal or counselor. College credits earned through the program can be applied to a degree program at Howard University or transferred to another four-year college or university upon graduation. “Howard University and DCPS share a rich history of providing students with opportunities to explore their academic interests and advance their knowledge of the world around them,” said Dr. Wayne A.I. Frederick, president of Howard University “I am proud to deepen our relationship through the dual-enrollment partnership. Through this program, we are aiming to inspire and develop the next generation of leaders and innovators from right here in the District.” “This collaboration provides our students with unprecedented access to a treasure trove of opportunities,” said DCPS Chancellor Kaya Henderson. “The benefits of this program go far beyond exposure to rigorous college courses. It will give students the focus, confidence, and foundation that they will need to succeed in college and 21st century careers. We are grateful to Howard University for their generous support and continued commitment to our students’ success.” DCPS will expand the dual-enrollment program model to all high schools over the next three years through new partnerships with other local universities. DCPS currently offers dual-enrollment programs through partnerships with George Washington University (School Without Walls program) and the University of the District of Columbia (College Access and Readiness for Everyone, or CARE program).
