CHAMP Charter (Chino Valley USD) Holds Conference on Restorative Justice Practices

March 6, 2018  |   Comments Off on CHAMP Charter (Chino Valley USD) Holds Conference on Restorative Justice Practices

CHAMPers held a conference on March 6 which introduced attendees to Restorative Justice Practices.  Our speakers were Marissa Lazo-Necco and Charles Neighbours.  The event was put on by Chino Valley Unified School District’s ACSA charter CHAMP in order to support administrators in addressing how to improve school climate. This event was an effort to support the District’s PBIS initiative. The speakers were engaging, informative and passionate about delivering the message that changes in practice will lead to changed outcomes which leads to a changed mindset.

Region 12’s and XIX’s REM charter go on shopping spree, eat chocolate later.

February 20, 2018  |   Comments Off on Region 12’s and XIX’s REM charter go on shopping spree, eat chocolate later.

The REM (Retired Educational Managers) charters of ACSA Regions 12 and XIX went on a field trip to the Spectrum Mall in Irvine by bus on February 20, 2018, followed by a visit to the nearby CHOCXO chocolate factory. Members dispersed through the mall for shopping and lunch after they departed their comfortable bus, meeting later to reboard and head to the factory. The CHOXCO factory had a salesroom/display area featuring not only their wares, but murals outlining the steps from bean to bar in making chocolate. We had our own factory tour guide, who led us from one display to another while workers could be seen behind glass monitoring their tanks.

The Oompa-Loompas were on strike, and Willy Wonka had just left for the day when we arrived.  We nevertheless had a good time and all came home with diabetes, tooth decay and a sugar high whilst lugging heavy packages of consumer goods from the mall that no one could really afford or needed.

Special thanks to REM board member Nancy Cliath for once again organizing a wonderful trip!

Another Region Leadership Assembly was held on November 5 at the Azusa Pacific University San Bernardino campus. The agenda can be viewed here: leadership assembly region agenda February 5 2018

We have altered how we have “L.A.” meetings this year. Instead of “breakout” sessions at the beginning with (e.g.) charter presidents in one corner, Membership VPs in another etc., we now have mini-sessions for professional development. This time, we featured “Incorporating Differential Coaching Skills in Working with Teacher Leaders and Others” by Dr. Shannon Miller, Director, Fontana USD, followed by “How to Communicate with your Legislator” by Rosilicie Bogh, Field Representative for Assemblymember Chad Mayes (R-42).  We postponed a third session for our next L.A. meeting later this year.

The Leadership Assembly accepted a donation from Horace Mann representative Kari Eisenacher for $1500 to further our region and state objectives.

The Executive Board stayed behind at the meeting’s conclusion to brainstorm on a strategic planning exercise to provide input to State ACSA on our organization’s most pressing issues.

 

Region 12 and XIX Retired Educational Managers Charter Holds Annual Winter Presidents Luncheon

January 24, 2018  |   Comments Off on Region 12 and XIX Retired Educational Managers Charter Holds Annual Winter Presidents Luncheon

The combined REM charter of ACSA Region’s 12 and XIX held its annual Presidents Luncheon on January 24, 2018 at the Doubletree by Hilton in San Bernardino. REM events concentrate on not only information relevant ot our group such as retirement benefits, but also “fun” activities that are entertaining and informational. This time, we were entertained by Prestidigitator Anthony the Magic, who really did amaze us. “How did he do that?” we asked. “How could that rabbit come out of that handkerchief?”  We were also brought up to date on retirement issues by Nancy Cliath and Dr. Margaret Reed, two of our REM board members. Nancy also shared plans for remaining events for this year. When the time comes for YOU to retire, ask about membership in the REM charter and also how to continue your ACSA membership and keep in the know.

Dr. Margaret Reed apprises attendees of the latest political goings-on regarding pensions and other retirement issues.

Members enjoy their Sombrero Buffet prior to the magic act. In the background, Nancy Cliath shares out.

Presto Chango! Moments later, animals appear.
