Agenda Item #41


Title
Harbor City Elementary - AIMS: Number Sense Workshop

Discussion
As a required expenditure of the NCLB Act, Harbor City Elementary School must spend 10 percent of its budgeted Title I funds on staff development in the area where they did not make AYP (Math/Students with disabilities). After reviewing FCAT data it was obvious our students struggle in the area of Number Sense.  Therefore, on April 28, 2009, a consultant from AIMS will conduct two half-day workshops focusing on Number Sense; one for primary grades (K-2) and the other for our intermediate grades (3-6). During this workshop participants will learn highly successful activities and strategies to meet the needs of the lowest 25% and special needs students.

Recommendation
Approve staff development training (AIMS: Number Sense Workshop) to be conducted on April 28, 2009.
