SECONDARY EXTENDED DAY GUIDELINES

2014-2015 SCHOOL YEAR
Student Eligibility
Secondary (Middle and High Schools) Program:

The Secondary Extended Day Program is designed to meet the needs of students who are pursuing a standard diploma and who are most in need of academic support. Middle and high schools will be provided the flexibility to design a program that meets the needs of their student population.

The following recommendations may be utilized for the Extended Day Program at the secondary level:

  • Provide academic support and enhancement for those students who are not performing during the regular school day

  • Provide opportunities for students to make up work

  • Provide acceleration/previewing for students who are not meeting district minimum standards in reading, writing, science or Mathematics (Progress Monitoring Plans)

  • Provide academic support and remediation for students to be successful on State End of Course exams

  • Provide core curriculum academic support and remediation for students as a part of Middle School Promotion Recovery (student has failed, in danger of failing, or is failing a course. Note: Edgenuity is the only approved course recovery program permitted to be used during ESD.)

  • Provide opportunity for students who are pursuing credit recovery through APEX. (Note: APEX is the only approved credit recovery program permitted to be used during ESD.)

  • Provide support for students specific needs in the areas of reading or mathematics. (See Appendix B1 and B2 for Secondary Program Descriptions.)


At the secondary level, attendance may be fluid with students taking advantage of the program based on need. ESD programs are to document student participation in order to assess a program’s effectiveness.
Allocations are limited and schools will need to prioritize using school data to assist in selecting students who will achieve the most optimal gains (e.g., lowest 25%, Progress Monitoring Plan in reading and/or mathematics, has failed, in danger of failing or is failing a course during the regular day, meet criteria of Early Warning System taking part in Middle School Promotion Recovery or High School credit recovery). As the registrations come in, schools should then work their way down the list of eligible students until the program reaches its capacity. A sample letter is included in this packet for your use. (See Appendix A.) Please adjust the content of the letter to reflect the parameters of the program at your site. In order to participate, parents must provide a signature of approval on the letter.
Students are expected to behave appropriately, and disruptive behavior is cause for removal from the Extended Day Program. If disruptive behavior occurs, parents need to be apprised of behavioral concerns, after which, if behavior continues to interfere with the benefit of the program, the student may be asked to leave the Extended Day Program. Other qualified students may replace students who leave the program.
This program is meant to support students in their efforts to meet graduation requirements. Secondary schools will be required to submit the SAI Funded Extended Program and the Program Description forms outlining the Extended Day model being used at the site (Appendix E and Appendix F) one week prior to the start of the program to Mona Kohl in the Office for Teaching and Learning (OTL).

Model

The costs below are based on per teacher allocation.
*60 total hours of student contact time, 13 total hours of planning time.

Total = 73 hours x $35.00 per hour (estimated) = $2,555.00 per teacher
Money has been budgeted at $100.00 per school for consumable materials/supplies. Please contact Mona Kohl for the appropriate coding information.
*The program is not to exceed the 60 hours of instructional time per teacher allocation.
An Extended Day Program can be scheduled Monday through Friday in a way that best meets the needs of the student and school. Schools receive a total of 40 days of transportation services to support their ESD day program.
Minimum Pupil/Teacher Ratio:

Secondary: 20 Students per Teacher
When attendance drops below the minimum pupil/teacher ratio for 2 weeks, classes must be consolidated or closed. If this occurs, please notify Rayann Mitchell, Senior Supervisor for the Office for Teaching and Learning.
Identification of grade(s) to be targeted

The grade level(s) served will be at the discretion of the individual school. The targeted grade levels should be based on data and prioritized in order to reduce the overall number of students in need of remediation.
Personnel Matters

Selection of Teachers

The purpose of the Extended Day Program is to support students in their efforts to meet high school graduation requirements in a format different from regular classroom instruction. This program acts as scaffolding for learning by providing best practices of instructional strategies to address content and college readiness standards. The ability of the teacher to provide this scaffolding should be the key factor in determining who is hired. Teachers selected must be under contract with the District School Board of Pasco County and must make a commitment for regular attendance (miss no more than 3 sessions). It is appropriate to replace a teacher if necessary.
Certification - Preference should be given to teachers certified or endorsed in the area in which they are teaching in the Extended Day Program. ESE or ESOL certifications are not an issue for the Extended Day Program.
Training - Preference should be given to teachers who have had (or who are scheduled to attend) the trainings identified in the program descriptions for the area in which the teacher would be teaching in the Extended Day Program. (Appendix B.)
Responsibilities - Teachers in the Extended Day Program must take attendance using the system communicated by his/her Administrator and must complete lesson plans to reflect the services being provided for students in the Extended Day Program. Extended Day teachers must administer pre- and post-tests using appropriate assessment tools. This information will help to monitor student progress. Any additional diagnostic information the Extended Day teacher develops should be shared with the regular day teacher and vice versa. Schools should maintain the assessments. Extended Day teachers should communicate with regular day teachers in order to coordinate acceleration/previewing with regular day instruction. (See communication form in Appendix C) Extended Day teachers must also communicate with parents at various points in the program. To the extent feasible, communications should be in a language the parents can understand. (See Extended Day Progress Report in Appendix D.)
Lead Teacher

The Lead Teacher is a supplement and is not an instructional unit. Schools will only receive a Lead Teacher allocation when a need for the position is demonstrated. Send email requests to Rayann Mitchell in the Office for Teaching with an explanation as to why the following responsibilities cannot be performed by existing school staff personnel.
Responsibilities - Lead Teachers will assist with supervision of students at arrival and dismissal, act as liaison between Extended Day teachers and administration, act as liaison between Extended Day teachers and regular day teachers, and serve as the school contact for emergencies. Lead Teachers should be provided with a copy of each student’s Emergency Card, listing who to contact in case of a medical emergency or in case a situation arises where someone other than a parent comes to pick up the child.
Lead Teacher Information - Lead Teachers must be provided with a copy of the Secondary Extended School Day Program Guidelines for information related to their role and responsibilities.
Principals must provide the Lead Teacher administration contact information in the event situations arise. Lead Teachers will need to complete Lead Teacher Information Form (Appendix H) and send it to Mona Kohl a week prior to the start of the program.
A Lead Teacher allocation is above and beyond the instructional unit. See example below:
Example: River Ridge High School receives 2 instructional units and 1 Lead Teacher allocation. The program entails two extended day classes with one of the 2 instructional unit teachers earning the Lead Teacher pay for the responsibilities above and beyond the instructional program (additional 30 minutes per day of student contact).
Teacher Schedule

Some Extended Day Programs may overlap with a teacher’s regularly-scheduled work day, the teacher’s start time and end time may have to be adjusted to avoid teachers being paid twice for the same block of time. Each Teachers allocation will be paid for ten minutes of planning time for each hour taught per week. Planning time is included within a teacher’s start time and end time. Under the example below, which assumes an extended program that runs 2 days (total of 3 instructional hours) per week, a teacher working in the Extended School Day Program would have a 9 hour and 15 minute work day, and his or her scheduled start/end time should reflect the length of his or her work day.

ESD Planning Time

7.5 hours

1.5 hours

15 minutes


In addition, each teacher’s allocation will receive three hours pay for program planning (to be spread over pre, mid, and post-planning). School administrators will decide when those three hours will be scheduled.
Pay

Instructional personnel will be paid one hundred percent (100%) of their hourly rates of pay. Non-instructional personnel are to receive their regular rates of pay, which should be funded out of IDEA funds and will need the approval of the Director of Student Support Programs and Services. Teachers will sign in and out on a separate sheet for the Extended Day Program. SRPs hired to assist ESE students, as indicated on their IEPs, will sign in and out next to the OT line on their regular sign-in sheets. Lead Teachers will receive pay for an additional 30 minutes per day on student contact days to compensate them for the extensive responsibilities described above.
Human Resources Paperwork

Once a school has been notified that it has been approved to have an Extended Day Program, the principal should submit the SAI Funded Extended Program (Appendix E) to Mona Kohl/OTL one week prior to the start of your program. Schools should identify the:

  • Extended Day Teachers

  • School related personnel willing to substitute.

  • Lead Teacher (if one is awarded)


Teachers that are funded through Title I or other sources would not be included on this form. If an Extended Day Program teacher is not present for a class, he or she will not be paid for the class. Teachers who substitute will receive their regular hourly rates of pay.
Program Description Form (See Appendix F)
The Program Description Form (Appendix F) must be submitted with the SAI Funded Extended Program Notification to Mona Kohl in OTL a week prior to the start of your program.
September 23 is the first possible start date for the Extended Day Program pending coordination of transportation.

Students with Special Needs

ESE

ESE students who are pursuing a standard diploma and who meet the same criteria as stated in the eligibility section for all students are eligible to attend the Extended Day Program. ESE students are eligible to receive Extended Day services based on the same criteria as any other student in the regular education environment, this is an equal access issue, not an IEP or FAPE issue and, therefore, Extended Day services should not be documented on the IEP. Reasonable accommodations stated within a student’s current IEP should be made available to the student as needed during the Extended Day Program. If a student is provided special transportation for the regular school day as indicated on the current IEP, then that same special transportation may be provided at parent request without revision to the current IEP being required.
As with all students, disruptive behavior is cause for removal from the Extended Day Program. If disruptive behavior occurs, parents need to be apprised of behavioral concerns, after which, if behavior continues to interfere with the benefit of the program, the student may be asked to leave the Extended Day Program. If there are any questions or concerns about this process, need for ESE support services or what may or may not be appropriate in a specific case, the school administrator should contact the Sr. Supervisor for Students with Disabilities in OSSPS for clarification or assistance.
504 Accommodations

Students with 504 Accommodation plans are eligible to participate in the Extended Day Program, if they meet the eligibility criteria set by the school. The 504 Plan accommodations should be made available to the student as needed during the Extended Day Program.
