We have a new added feature at the school. Our new Wall of Fame is by the concession stand in the commons. This new touch screen monitor has revolving pictures, a calendar and a live Twitter feed. There are three tabs at the bottom that will launch you to the three A’s of school: Academics, Activities and Athletics. Each tab will have sections that include information about the best students Westwood has had step through our doors. There are also sections about the Athletic Boosters, Music Boosters and Foundation. We have a lot of information to upload but be sure to check out the team and individual records. Plus, every Westwood Yearbook is at your fingertips. Not only can you view it on the monitor but on the website: http://westwood.touchpros.com/. Spend some time with family this weekend scrolling through your (or your parents) yearbooks. A big thanks goes out to Lori Matthias for collecting all the yearbooks!
What is the Substitute Authorization?
The Substitute Authorization allows an individual
with a baccalaureate degree who has completed the
Substitute Authorization program to substitute in an
elementary, middle school, junior high school or high
school classroom for no more than five consecutive
days in one job assignment at a time.
Paraeducators who hold a Paraeducator Generalist
Certificate and complete the Substitute Authorization
program are authorized to substitute, but only in the
special education classroom in which the individual
paraeducator is employed. A paraeducator cannot
substitute in a general education classroom.
Schools continue to have the autonomy to hire
only individuals who are fully licensed as teachers.
However, there now exists a second option for schools
that may have difficulty filling a short-term substitute
What you will learn:

methods for keeping students engaged and on-task.
