This communication is to inform you about how Olathe North will be assigning MANDATORY OFFICE HOURS during Eagle Half from this point on.
As a reminder, MANDATORY OFFICE HOURS takes place during the 50 minute Eagle Halftime, (lunch period). Students that have a D or F in a specific class can be required to spend 25 minutes of Eagle Halftime to get help with that teacher. Skipping MANDATORY OFFICE HOURS is not an option. Office Hours are assigned with the student’s academic success in mind.
Teachers will utilize a software program to assign the MANDATORY OFFICE HOUR. (This software program will send you and your student a notification stating that the assignment has been made.) The notification will include the date, teacher’s name, room number, and whether it is for “A” or “B” Office Hour
The notification will also say that a DISCIPLINE has been assigned. Please understand that this is not a DISCIPLINE. It is an INTERVENTION. The software program does not allow us to change the wording from discipline to intervention.
Below is an example of an email that will be sent to the student, parent, teacher and administrator. It is imperative that we encourage our students to look at their school email on a daily basis. Email is a communication that all our students will use after high school. It is important that we as educators and parents encourage our kids to begin using it now.
This email is to inform you that Jason Herman has just been assigned "Mandatory Office Hour". As a parent or guardian we want you to be aware of this assigned discipline and encourage Camryn to serve the consequence on the assigned date to prevent further discipline.
Name: Jason Herman
Assigned Date: 11/29/2017 @ Lunch Time
Discipline Type: Mandatory Office Hour
Reason: Mr. Lynk room 101 Office hour A
NOTE: The remainder of first semester will be used to work out any flaws in the system. We are using a group of teachers to work with the software and the process to help us understand any changes that would need to be made. You may or may not get email notifications during the fall semester, depending if the teacher is participating in the testing. It will be rolled out on a building-wide basis starting in January.
If you have any questions about this process please contact your alpha administrator at 913-780-7140 or through email.
