Residents Speak Up at Wheaton Redevelopment Meeting in Montgomery County
The difference between a town square and a plaza was up to debate Wednesday as dozens of residents attended a meeting at Wheaton High School where developers gave an update on the plans for redeveloping Wheaton Triangle. While many citizens in the crowd were happy with a newly added interactive waterspout design, others disagreed that the current plan presented by representatives from Stonebridge Carras/Bozzuto Development, the selected developer for the project, represented the "Town Square" that they hoped would help to revitalize Wheaton. "In my view, and I am not an urban planner or architect, the most successful cities and towns are those which have places all in the same general area where people work and live and entertain themselves," said Wheaton resident Bruce Shulman. "This plan only meets two of those. It's a place where people work and it's a place where people live. This is truly not a town square. It's a plaza. It will be sterile after dark," Shulman said. But the those behind the project disagreed, saying that they're working towards a balance that would both attract crowds and bring new retailers to an area in need of redevelopment. "We think it's a town square, we designed it as a town square and hopefully it will be a town square," said Al Roshdieh Deputy Director for Montgomery County Department of Transportation. "We designed the location to be active at night so the idea is not just putting in an office building that closes at 5 p.m." The redevelopment program includes plans for an outdoor entertainment area, retail space, residential units, and the 12-story Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning office building. As clarified after a question by a resident during the meeting, there will not be any non-governmental office space available for lease. High performance facades and a vegetated green roof, among other elements, will help the plans to reach "Leed Gold Certified level," according to developers. At the first two community meetings on the project, residents spoke out against the exterior design for the building and developers from Stonebridge Carras made it clear at the third meeting that they were trying something different. "When you say that you really hate the building and it's a glass box like a downtown building, we've heard you and we'll show you what it's not going to look like," said Douglas Firstenberg, a founding principle of Stonebridge real estate development firm. The new design is "sleeker" and is designed to "look more like Wheaton," Firstenberg said. Some residents in attendance said that while the design is better, it's still not quite what they were looking for. "It's obviously not quite there yet with the change," said Elizabeth Chaisson, a Wheaton resident and urban planner during the meeting. "I'm sure we can find some better exteriors for this building. I'm not sure that fiber cement board is it yet." If approved, construction is slated to start in 2016 and open to the public in spring of 2018.

Webinar | Introducing the New DeCoste Writing Protocol
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.

Susan Byrne for Montgomery County Board of Education 2012
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

The New RCPS School Construction Plan
Background, rationale, and a suggested approach for completing a construction effort would enable Richmond County Schools to maintain a three school system and provide facilities that acknowledge the needs of ALL students. This proposal is a suggested alternative to the plan that the RCPS school board will consider during a public hearing on Jan. 3. 2013. The plan that is currently being considered by the board is one that will, unnecessarily, shut down the county's only intermediate school and force the elementary school to absorb the middle school population. This will create a consolidated preK-7 school. This will strain existing resources at RCES and add 200 children to the elementary population. RCES is already at capacity and is using makeshift instructional spaces to offer differentiated learning to its current population. This is a controversial issue for two reasons: 1) It is possible to avoid this and remaining a three school system and 2) Middle school students WILL be interacting and sharing spaces with very young children on a daily basis if the new K-7 school plan is accepted.
