RESPECT: We teach our students to respect authority, respect the learning environment, respect themselves and respect others. ACCOUNTABILITY: We teach our students to take responsibility for their actions and inactions. INTEGRITY: We demand our students exhibit honesty and a sound moral character. EXCELLENCE: We maintain an expectation that our students will submit high quality work and give superior performances every time.

  9. Lunch The charter schools do not have a food service program. However, we provide a pre-pay lunch menu from area restaurant vendors. Students may always bring a bag lunch to school. Microwaves are available to heat student lunches, but please be courteous as several students may need to heat food items. We ask that each child take no more than 1-2 minutes at the microwave. Students will be participating in field trips throughout the school year. Taking part in a school field trip is a privilege that must be earned. Participation will be based on academic performance, attendance, discipline and staff comfort level. Permission forms must be completed by parents and will be kept on file in the main office. Field trip details will always be sent home prior to the actual field trip date. Field trips are never mandatory. Field Trips 10

  14. CSI Technology & Student Engagement Update “Students who are engaged are involved, but not all students who are involved are engaged.”- Philip Schlechty

  15. The use of technology is fundamentally changing the way students and instructors experience and negotiate the social dynamics of the classroom. • Through Learning Programs that are being used such as: • IXL, Study Island, Moby Max, Epic books • Updated technology to support increased student engagement using equipment such as: • Smartboards, Student Laptops, and online assessment tools. STUDENTS’ USE OF TECHNOLOGY

  16. CSI School Culture & Climate Update Introduction: Just like the weather has an affect on your day.... so does a toxic environment  We at LKCS decided that the students & staff needs to know what a positive climate looks and feels like. 1.Students should be engaged and on task. 2. Teachers should be teaching & helping students. 3.The class should have clear rules & expectations enforced. Why is a Positive  school climate important? Academic Success Students happy Teachers/staff happy/excited School attendance Students want to learn Everyone at work needs to feel valued. Everyone needs a voice. So LKCS developed a school Mantra for the staff/Students(everyone will read the Mantra out loud)(we also have the students attending student climate on Friday afternoonsdoing Yoga,Meditating,reading silently & greeted by guess speakers)(Staff/students will be taking Climate surveys soon) 18

  17. Governing Executive Board *The charter schools are governed by the Administration and Executive Board. The Board acts in the best interest of the schools’ mission and goals. *2018-2019 Boards will consist of the following seven (5) members: President, Vice-President, Secretary/Treasurer, Teacher Representative, and Administrative Representative. *Board members are held to a strict confidentiality and ethics code that, if broken, will result in their immediate removal and possible legal action against them. *Board votes require fifty percent (50%) plus one in order to successfully pass any policy changes, initiate reforms or make hearing determinations. *The Board conducts all hearings and appeals for the faculty, parents/guardians and students. Their decisions are final, acting in the same way as the Aiken County School Board does for the traditional schools. *Board members are restricted from discussing grievances and/or concerns with parties outside of procedural guidelines. If a Board member violates this rule, he or she will be found in direct conflict with ethical guidelines and must then excuse himself/herself from any future level of appeals in the matter. 19
