It also highlights the performance of student groups, making disparities or achievement gaps impossible to ignore,” said State Superintendent Tom Torlakson.<br /><br /> The Dashboard replaces the state’s former accountability system—the Academic Performance Index (API), which relied exclusively on standardized tests and gave schools a single score. That<br /> system was suspended three years ago.<br /><br /> Access the California School Dashboard at:  <a href="https://www.caschooldashboard.org/#/Home"><strong>caschooldashboard.org</strong></a></p> </div> Thu, 14 Dec 2017 18:11:59 +0000 rsalgado 559 at https://www.icoe.org ICOEnnections - December 2017 https://www.icoe.org/news/icoennections-december-2017 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">ICOEnnections - December 2017</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-story-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/contentType/newsStory/2017-12/thumbnail_0.PNG" width="489" height="361" alt="Project VOICE Training" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/users/mmezaicoeorg" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">mmeza@icoe.org</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Tue, 12/12/2017 - 08:35</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"> <p>ICOE's monthly e-newsletter is full of news and updates. </p> <p>Highlights in this month's ICOEnnections are month are:</p> <p>  (<a href="https://indd.adobe.com/view/e8f420c9-15ea-45e8-8483-4285e0fca00f">Click Here to View</a><a class="0" href="https://indd.adobe.com/view/35351de7-44ec-4da9-b799-bf050b704391" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><span class="0"><span class="element-invisible"> </span></span></a>) </p> <ul><li>Release of the California School Dashboard (Fall 2017)</li> <li>Red Ribbon Poster Contest Results</li> <li>Training Highlights</li> <li>Student Updates</li> <li>News from Student Well-Being</li> <li>And other highlights</li> </ul></div> </div> Tue, 12 Dec 2017 16:35:47 +0000 mmeza@icoe.org 555 at https://www.icoe.org ICOEnnections - November 2017 https://www.icoe.org/news/icoennections-november-2017 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">ICOEnnections - November 2017</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-story-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/contentType/newsStory/2017-11/Vet%20Cover%20Photo.png" width="582" height="365" alt="Picture of Veterans" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/users/toddevangelisticoeorg" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="todd.evangelist@icoe.org">todd.evangelis…</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Mon, 11/13/2017 - 14:34</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>ICOE's monthly e-newsletter is full of news and updates. </p> <p>Highlights in this month's ICOEnnections are month are:</p> <p>  (<a href="https://indd.adobe.com/view/35351de7-44ec-4da9-b799-bf050b704391">Click Here to View</a>) </p> <ul><li>Recognition of ICOE's Veterans</li> <li>Notable Awards for ICOE staff</li> <li>Training Highlights</li> <li>Student Updates</li> <li>News from Student Well-Being</li> <li>And other highlights</li> </ul></div> Mon, 13 Nov 2017 22:34:16 +0000 todd.evangelist@icoe.org 544 at https://www.icoe.org Navy Veteran Finds Calling Working with Students with Special Needs https://www.icoe.org/news/navy-veteran-finds-calling-working-students-special-needs <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Navy Veteran Finds Calling Working with Students with Special Needs</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-story-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/contentType/newsStory/2017-11/Roy%20Aguilar.png" width="218" height="353" alt="Roy Aguilera" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/users/toddevangelisticoeorg" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="todd.evangelist@icoe.org">todd.evangelis…</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sun, 11/12/2017 - 20:37</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-story-image-caption field--type-string-long field--label-hidden field__item">Roy Aguilar in 1977 and today, 40 years later</div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p style="margin:0px">As a skinny 21-year-old in 1977, ICOE’s Roy Aguilera enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served our country for the next four years. Serving as Radio Man at the height of the cold war, Roy was tasked with keeping communications flowing between ships and bases over the vast Pacific Ocean. Roy had requested to be stationed in Hawaii, but was sent to Adak, Alaska for 2 years. He did, however, get his island wish and spent his last two years of duty in Guam.</p> <p style="margin:0px"><br /> Raised in El Centro, Roy felt the pressure to get a job and provide for his family after high school. Joining the Navy at 21, Roy was more mature and responsible than the other recruits. As a result he was chosen by his boot camp Captain to be his company’s Outstanding Recruit, an honor that surprised even his family.</p> <p style="margin:0px"><br /> Returning to Imperial Valley in 1980, Roy eventually found his purpose and calling in life with ICOE’s Special Education program. The affable Navy Veteran is tasked with helping students with behavior problems in our classrooms as a Behavior Assistant at the Imperial Valley Center for Exceptional Children (IVCEC). Often being assigned to a student as a one-on-one assistant, Roy gets to see progress in children that others may miss. One touching story Roy shared was of a child that was acting out and was often disruptive. The student’s disability was so severe that she was without communication – trapped in a world without being able to let others know what she wanted or how she was feeling. After weeks and months of consistent work, there was a break through. The student learned enough language to communicate at a basic level. For the first time ever, she could communicate that she wanted something to eat or go to the bathroom. Her family was ecstatic, and coincidently, the child’s behavior problems went away completely. She could speak!</p> <p style="margin:0px"><br /> “This is my true calling” said Aguilera, “I love my job and want to work with these children for the rest of my life”. When asked about what he’s learned in the past 15 years working for ICOE, Roy commented that each student’s needs are different, and as a result, the most important ingredients to his job are having a good measure of patience, love and compassion.  A good recipe for all of us!  </p> </div> Mon, 13 Nov 2017 04:37:35 +0000 todd.evangelist@icoe.org 543 at https://www.icoe.org Red Ribbon Week and Enrique Kiki Camarena https://www.icoe.org/news/red-ribbon-week-and-enrique-kiki-camarena <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Red Ribbon Week and Enrique Kiki Camarena</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-story-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/contentType/newsStory/2017-10/Enrique%20Kiki%20Camarena.jpg" width="219" height="300" alt="Enrique Kiki Camarena" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/users/toddevangelisticoeorg" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="todd.evangelist@icoe.org">todd.evangelis…</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Mon, 10/23/2017 - 07:45</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-story-image-caption field--type-string-long field--label-hidden field__item">DEA Agent, Enrique Kiki Camarena</div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">Enrique (Kiki) S. Camarena was born on July 26, 1947 in Mexicali, Mexico. He graduated from Calexico High School in Calexico, California in 1966, and in 1968 he joined the U.S. Marine Corps. After serving in the Marine Corps for two years,</span><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Verdana&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;"> </span><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">Kiki was a Calexico Fireman, Calexico Police Officer, and an Imperial County Deputy Sheriff.  Kiki joined the Drug Enforcement Administration in June of 1974. His first assignment as a Special Agent with DEA was in a familiar place - Calexico, California. </span></p> <p><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">In 1977, after three years in Calexico, he was reassigned to the Fresno District Office in Northern California. Four years later, Kiki received transfer orders to Mexico, where he would work out of the Guadalajara Resident Office. For four and one-half years in Mexico, Kiki remained on the trail of the country's biggest marijuana and cocaine traffickers. And in early 1985, he was extremely close to unlocking a multi-billion-dollar drug pipeline. However, before he could expose the drug trafficking operations to the public, he was kidnapped on February 7, 1985. On that fateful day, while headed to a luncheon with his wife, Mika, Kiki was surrounded by five armed men who threw him into a car and sped away. That was the last time anyone but his kidnappers would see him alive.</span></p> <p><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">It is believed that Special Agent Camarena's death occurred two days later, but his body was not discovered until March 5, 1985. He was 37 years old and was survived by his wife, Mika and their three children, Enrique, Daniel and Erik. During his 11 years with DEA, Kiki received two Sustained Superior Performance Awards, a Special Achievement Award and, posthumously, the Administrator’s Award of Honor, the highest award granted by DEA.</span></p> <p><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">Shortly after Kiki's death, Congressman, Duncan Hunter, and high school friend Henry Lozano launched C<em><span style="margin: 0px; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif;">amarena Clubs </span></em>in Kiki's hometown of Calexico, California. Hundreds of club members wore red ribbons and pledged to lead drug-free lives to honor the sacrifices made by Kiki Camarena and others on behalf of all Americans.</span></p> <p><span style="margin: 0px; color: black; font-family: &quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">Red Ribbon Week eventually gained momentum throughout California and later the United States. In 1985, club members presented the "Camarena Club Proclamation" to then First Lady Nancy Reagan, bringing it national attention. Later that summer, parent groups in California, Illinois, and Virginia began promoting the wearing of Red Ribbons nationwide during late October. The campaign was then formalized in 1988 by National Family Partnership, with President and Mrs. Reagan serving as honorary chairpersons. Today, the eight-day celebration is sponsored by the National Family Partnership (previously known as the Federation of Parents for Drug Free Youth), and has become the annual catalyst to show intolerance for drugs in our schools, work places, and communities. Each year, during the last week in October, more than 80 million young people and adults show their commitment to a healthy, drug-free life by wearing or displaying the Red Ribbon.</span></p> <p><a href="https://www.dea.gov/redribbon/RedRibbon_history.shtml">https://www.dea.gov/redribbon/RedRibbon_history.shtml</a></p> <p> </p> <p> </p> </div> Mon, 23 Oct 2017 14:45:10 +0000 todd.evangelist@icoe.org 528 at https://www.icoe.org 17th Annual Regional Migrant Parent Conference https://www.icoe.org/news/17th-annual-regional-migrant-parent-conference <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">17th Annual Regional Migrant Parent Conference</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/users/rsalgado" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">rsalgado</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 10/11/2017 - 09:53</span> <div class="field field--name-field-news-story-video field--type-string field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">News story video</div> <div class="field__item">https://youtu.be/vzDVDB70CoQ</div> </div> Wed, 11 Oct 2017 16:53:11 +0000 rsalgado 525 at https://www.icoe.org
