And while at ICOE they implemented the best instructional practices around the Common Core State Standards.</p> <p>“I had the privilege of working with Calipatria faculty,” recalled Marmolejo. “It was clear the moment I stepped on campus that teachers cared deeply about students and were passionate for their work. As Fremont’s principal I can empower teachers. I’m 100 percent looking forward to it.”</p> <p>Her top priority is to help students meet new Common Core Standards. She also praises Calipatria High School Superintendent Doug Kline’s motivating of students to achieve at higher levels.</p> <p>“I’m looking forward getting to know the community as we all to make a difference in the lives of students.”</p> <p>Enthusiastic about the decentralization of the state’s Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) budgets, Marmolejo called the LCAP a guiding light to what the school district’s goals are moving toward. The flexibility of the Local Control Funding Formula allows stakeholders of the district to allot funds to those students who need it the most.</p> <p>“We have to promote a stronger first teaching of skills and then we don’ rely so much on extended day tutorials,” said Marmolejo. “I’ve noticed Calipatria already purchased new language arts and math curriculum (updated texts with digital components) that should help.”</p> <p>Marmolejo also celebrated long running programs such as Mock Trial, a student competition that illustrates the rule of law and the Migrant Education Debate Tournament as powerful tools to foster college and career readiness in real world settings.</p> <p>“And California Dashboard (online program tracking achievement scores) is a positive model of how we should look at student data,” she said. “It also looks at attendance, graduation, expulsion rates and other standards that gives a fuller picture of how every district is performing. Dashboard is looking at all our students assessing how much they’ve grown in the past year.”</p> <p>“Marmolejo’s tenure as teacher and curriculum instructor gives her [a] well-rounded understanding of education,” noted Kline. “This next step she’ll incorporate all the prior aspects of her career,” said Kline. “And the fact that she’s been training teachers gives her an advantage coming in and working in our district.”</p> <p>Kline also praised Todd Finnell, Imperial County superintendent of schools, as an authentic leader and changing education in the Valley for the good of the citizens. “Freemont Primary is a well performing site,” said Kline. “And Kelley has performed very well at every level in her career so far. So we don’t expect to see anything less here.”</p> <p>Doreen Johnson, ICOE senior director of leading and learning, recalled how Marmolejo adjusted teachers to the emerging Common Core Standards these last few years.</p> <p>“Kelley approached her coaching more as a mentor than instructor,” said Johnson. “We’ll miss her at ICOE but she’ll do a wonderful job at Fremont Primary.”</p> <p>Staff Writer William Roller can be reached at <a href="mailto:wroller@ivpressonline.com">wroller@ivpressonline.com</a> or 760-337-3452.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ivpressonline.com/news/local/new-principal-eager-to-guide-calipatria-s-young-leaders/article_9ba525ca-702a-11e7-87f9-3be01b90dcab.html#_=_">IVPress Online Article</a></p> </div> Mon, 24 Jul 2017 15:12:27 +0000 rsalgado 481 at https://www.icoe.org Annual Special Education Awards https://www.icoe.org/news/annual-special-education-awards <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Annual Special Education Awards</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/2017-07/SELPA%20Awards%202017a.jpg" width="393" height="253" alt="People with awards" 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">Tue, 07/11/2017 -

they make progress</i></span></p> </blockquote> <p style="margin:0px"><font face="Calibri">As the sole fulltime teacher based at Del Rio Academy, Nunez is certainly faced with challenges. Teaching a wide variety of grades, the span is often between 7<sup><font size="2">th</font></sup> to 12<sup><font size="2">th</font></sup> grade, and providing direct teaching in all the core academic disciplines such as English language arts, math and social sciences can be demanding. “That part was hard, but the flip side is that as their teacher all day long, I can really develop a relationship with students and I can see where we are making a difference with students.” </font></p> <p style="margin:0px"> </p> <p style="margin:0px"><font face="Calibri">Nunez is quick to acknowledge that while he is the only teacher on campus a lot of the time, there are a lot of other ICOE staff that make up the team at Del Rio. In fact, one of the staff (Mr. Flores) will get in a van and look for students if they don’t show up for school by a certain time. “For a variety of reasons our students need additional support – they get that here, and as a result - <i>they make progress</i>” summarized Nunez when discussing the role of Alternative Education. </font></p> <p style="margin:0px"> </p> <p style="margin:0px"><font face="Calibri">An Army veteran with two tours of combat duty, Nunez majored in Criminal Justice and History at SDSU locally here in Imperial Valley.

Today would be different, though, when assistant manager Stephanie Villanueva presented the young men with a cake on their last day of “work.”</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 11px;"><span style="margin: 0px; line-height: 107%; font-size: 14pt;">“I’m proud of you guys,” Villanueva said. “We really have appreciated the help. Thank you for the hard work.”</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 11px;"><span style="margin: 0px; line-height: 107%; font-size: 14pt;">And hard work it has been, at least for Mendez, 19, of Calexico, who is severely developmentally disabled. Even though he said it’s “hard,” he also said he likes “everything” about it, smiling ear to ear Monday as he worked on a wall of chinos, sorting them by waist size with his helper, instructional aide Francisca Arevalo. </span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 11px;"><span style="margin: 0px; line-height: 107%; font-size: 14pt;">Mendez is a student in Francisco Nuñez’s Imperial County Office of Education special education class based at Calexico High School. While anywhere from two to four students can work the Banana Republic store, on Monday it was just Medina and 20-year-old Velasquez, also of Calexico, who folded women’s jackets and sorted them by size at a nearby table. They are part of a program called “Workability” through ICOE and the Imperial Valley Regional Occupational Program (ROP), Nuñez said. </span></p> <figure role="group" class="caption caption-img align-left"><img alt="Students with cake" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="98b2c86b-a67e-458a-b6e6-d30e8a892c36" height="259" src="/sites/default/files/inline-images/George%20and%20Yazbeth.jpg" width="346" /><figcaption>George Mendez and Yazbeth Velasquez</figcaption></figure><p style="margin: 0px 0px 11px;"><span style="margin: 0px; line-height: 107%; font-size: 14pt;">When not folding clothes, they might be sorting items or cleaning at the two other Calexico job sites they and a dozen other students work, KFC and Pizza Hut.<span style="margin: 0px;">   </span></span></p> <blockquote> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 11px;">That's one reason I'm so proud to work for this company: We're all about inclusion,</p> </blockquote> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 11px;"><span style="margin: 0px; line-height: 107%; font-size: 14pt;">Working at the Banana Republic is special, however. Nuñez said students with increased challenges might be more suited for KFC or Pizza Hut, but the more independent and advanced students can earn a spot at Banana Republic. Arevalo said KFC and Pizza Hut are closed to the public when the students come by. Not so at the high-end fashion outlet---the students work right alongside regular store staff and customers coming in looking for deals.</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 11px;"><span style="margin: 0px; line-height: 107%; font-size: 14pt;">Banana Republic General Manager Israel Muñiz has witnessed the students interact with the customers, and he thinks it’s great. In fact, Muñiz is a huge fan of Workability having initially come to the workforce at age 16 through an ROP work experience program himself.</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 11px;"><span style="margin: 0px; line-height: 107%; font-size: 14pt;">“That’s one reason I’m so proud to work for this company: We’re all about inclusion,” he said of Banana Republic. The students “definitely blend in with the rest of the staff. … People will ask them for things and ask them for sizes.

During the course of a busy day, Villanueva said, regular store staff just can’t get to it. </span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 11px;"><span style="margin: 0px; line-height: 107%; font-size: 14pt;">“Them having it all organized and ready for the customers,” Muñiz said, “increases our sales.” He added that 50 percent of the store’s business comes through the clearance areas.</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 11px;"><span style="margin: 0px; line-height: 107%; font-size: 14pt;">The Workability program will start up again in the fall, and Muñiz said he looks forward to a new crop of students to help in the store. </span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 11px;"><span style="margin: 0px; line-height: 107%; font-size: 14pt;">Villanueva is ready as well. “Sometimes we complain about the little things, and then we see them come in so hungry to learn even little things. <span style="margin: 0px;"> </span>It inspires me in a way.”</span></p> <p style="margin: 0px 0px 11px;"><span style="margin: 0px; line-height: 107%; font-size: 14pt;">“Not just me as general manager, but every one of the staff generally enjoys working with them,” Muñiz added. “Their smiles are contagious, the teachers’ aides are great, and overall it’s an amazing experience, and anyone thinking of this program should definitely give it a try.”</span></p> </div> Thu, 15 Jun 2017 22:32:25 +0000 todd.evangelist@icoe.org 461 at https://www.icoe.org ICOEnnections June 2017 https://www.icoe.org/news/icoennections-june-2017 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">ICOEnnections June 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/2017-06/robin-lynne%20%281%20of%202%29.jpg" width="575" height="432" alt="ICOEnnections June 2017" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <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">Tue, 06/13/2017 -
