Thank You! You have no idea how frustrating it's been thus far. I've purchased your book, though have to have a paper and PPT ready on the action research for the 12th. Am not sure exactly how to proceed since I'm still looking for any documentation of what was done last year and how they intend to tweak it except for adding some higher level freshmen to the mix. Will let you know how I fare later on today.

Nope. That would be Stonehenge.
You should check out this guy in Riverside, CA. His website is awesome!

Hi Scott, I won't turn down being a featured member. I'll respond whenever I have something of value to add, even if its just a birthday wish. Thank you for the offer.

Thank you for looking at it, however, I have not been as active lately due to everything else going on. My goal is to consolidate everything to this site so my parents, colleagues, students, etc. have one place to receive updates and information. Thank you for providing this!

Are you coming to Memphis, TN?

Yeah, the pink might be too overwhelming for me... I haven't decided just yet! And by the way, things are really starting to come together for our new transition program. We're going to be using a lot of ideas that we learned at the conference!

I have two responses to the survey thus far. I am very hopeful that others will begin to respond in the very near future. I would like to have my documentation together this upcoming week.

Thanks!

I am working on it little by little! :)

We are working on that right now. Also, have you found a way for the full site to be visible on a school network?

Thank you- it is a work in progress! I am glad you had our school colors :-)

Thank you so much. I did send this website to my 9th grade house leader here at Pine Ridge and she is behind us 100% percent. The problem is our district has lost about 50 million dollars this year alone in state funding. Some due to loss of enrollment, but most from funding cuts from the state level. All of Florida is hurting, but Volusia county took a big hit. We are going to do what we can and I will ask what else we can do. Please be assured, I am willing to do whatever it takes for my kids to be successful. We are the last stop before dropping out for most of our students.

No we don't. I am afraid that I am not real computer literate. That is something we are planning for the future (next term) if we are not cut from our district's budget. We have been given some time to revamp the program to service 180 students (normal class sizes) which we are now working on. I have taken your plan that is used in Virginia and are adapting it for us. I am hoping this will work for us with what the district is expecting - service for those "at-risk" students. Thanks

Thanks- I'll do just about anything to help get through to my students- even stand on my head!!!

Thanks for the opportunity to join this group. I attended your conference in October of 2006 in Charlotte, NC. I am currently the 9 Transition Director of Pine Ridge High School in Deltona, FL which is in Volusia County (Daytona Beach). We started our program five years ago and have seen our first group graduate last year. We had started a little different than your program, but at the time we didn't have a model to follow. We take the most "at risk" students and try to encourage them and follow them through to graduation. It is difficult at times, but very rewarding because most of them DO graduate and have gone on to college, something they never believed they could do.
However, our state has hit hard economic times and we don't know if we will be able to continue in the format we currently use. Our team has already been dropped from four to three and we aren't sure what the new year will hold. Since we service those at risk, we only have about 45 students that remain with us all day and take only one elective away from us. We are proud of the fact that we teach the core subjects (things required for graduation) and our students receive their credits.
Again, thanks for the opportunity to share what we are doing and find out how others are managing in these difficult times.

I think this program sounds wonderful. I created a program for our 5th graders moving into the middle school and I know what a difference that made. I am trying to work with our hight school to create a transition program for our outgoing 8th graders. Thanks for writing.

I think this is great...especially for this to be my first year working with freshmen! I'm looking forward to being inspired as I try to motivate and encourage these seemingly unmotivatable (word?) students. Thanks for the invite!
