EHS announcements 2/28/2017

Hello and welcome to the Pirate TV announcements for March 1st.

You may have seen in the news this week that President Trump rescinded protections for transgender students that had allowed them to use bathrooms corresponding with their gender identity. Mr.West wants to be very clear on this, TEC Staff at all three schools remain committed to the rights of ALL of our students and have created an environment here where we go out of our way to make sure that ALL of our students feel welcome and safe. Mr.West stands in complete agreement with our Superintendent, Dr. Wendy Rubin, on this issue as being one that is a non-negotiable.

School leaders are becoming concerned with the volume of Safe-2-tell reports from all 3 of our schools. This system is designed to report serious issues that need immediate attention, such as suicidal thoughts, drug abuse, criminal neglect, and extreme bullying. The concern is that it has been used a lot recently for simple name calling, parent-to-parent issues, and even as a form of anonymous bullying by reporting students for things that are not true. Each of these calls involve a police officer. Reports of non urgent items can be handled just as efficiently by simply reporting them to any administrator or teacher.
