Action Alert: Study Session on Differentiation
There will be a Study Session on Differentiation in the Rochester Community Schools at the Board of Education meeting on Monday, March 25 at 7:00 PM, 501 W. University, Rochester, MI 48307. Differentiation is the technique currently used in RCS to address the needs of all students, including gifted learners.
The Board Packet for the Study Session can be found here. In the packet are two articles regarding differentiation techniques and examples. Please take a few moments to read these articles and make your opinions known to the Rochester Community Schools Board of Education and administration as to the appropriateness of these techniques for gifted learners.
Three ways to present your opinion to the Board of Education are:
- Email the Board of Education through its website: http://www.rochester.k12.mi.us/pages/5037/contact-the-board
- Talk with two members of the Board of Education beginning at 6:30 PM during Chat with the Board before the BOE meeting
- Speak for up to three minutes during the Additional Business portion of BOE meeting. This is just prior to the Study Session.
Public comment is not usually taken during the Study Session. However, the Board of Education can ask questions and hopefully will mention any concerns we raise.
I hope to see you at the Board of Education meeting and Study Session!
Remember, together we can make a difference for gifted children!
Thank you for reading Rochester SAGE.
