K-12 Education and Training Pathway

Written by

COMING IN SCHOOL YEAR 2018-2019

K-12 Teaching as a Profession

To help combat the teaching shortage, we are creating a new pathway to “Grow our Own” teachers. Our program is part of the Education and Training Cluster. It is the K-12 Teaching as a Profession Pathway. The program is designed to offer students opportunities to explore careers in teaching, planning, managing and providing education and training related learning support services. It offers an in-depth view of the teaching profession and hands-on experience working in classroom with students. Our motto is #ProjectGrowOurOwn. The program focus is centered on student engagement, instructional strategies, and reflection on practices that are associated with teacher training in our local post-secondary schools. Through their experiences in their classes and in their internships, students gain first-hand knowledge of what it is like to be a teacher.

9th grade: Exploring Education (Fundamentals)

Learn more about yourself, how you learn and how human development influences learning. Explore careers in education including school counseling, teaching, media services, or other education professions. Learn about the past, present and future of education in the U.S. Create an electronic portfolio that will continue throughout the Education and Training pathway.

10th grade: Teaching As Profession I

Experience and participate as you learn about the role and characteristics of an effective educator.

Observe and participate with teachers and students in the classroom. Learn about current teaching methods and instructional strategies. Explore assessments and when to use them. Discover how students learn and how to differentiate for special populations. Recognize ways to effectively use educational technology in the classroom.

11th grade: Teaching as a Profession II

Get hands on experience of how an educator uses coaching and leadership skills to successfully manage a classroom.  

What is the role of an educator in the classroom? Find these answers and many more as you learn about instructional strategies.  Learn and observe differentiated instruction and how it affects student learning. Create an environment where students are encouraged and empowered to become lifelong learners. Practice the art of creating instructional activities to inspire students to enjoy learning.

12th grade: Teaching as a Profession III (Capstone)

EDUC 1010 Weber State

Student Data Protection: Vendor Status

Written by

Weber School District has transitioned this information to a new website.

This website offers more information and is complete and up to date.  Please use this link to access it :

 

DO NOT SUBMIT APPS TO BE VETTED ON THIS WEBSITE!  APPS MUST BE SUBMITTED VIA A TICKET.

 

https://sdpc.a4l.org/district_listing.php?districtID=6610

 

Weber School District, in compliance with HB 358 and SB 102, has initiated a strict policy and protocol procedure for evaluating all third-party vendors who have access to any student data.  Interactive websites and apps collect student data such as location, name, phone numbers, likes and dislikes, routines, and much more.  Because of this, Weber School District wants to protect student data, both submitted by the student and generated by these third-party companies.  The most common use of student data is in marketing and research, and for selling to companies for a profit.  Because of this, Weber School District requires all third-party vendors to sign a Memorandum of Agreement, which specifies that all student data will be transmitted and stored in a secure way, that it won't be sold, and that it will be fully deleted upon request.

In order for a third-party vendor to be approved, they must go through the evaluation steps:

  1. Teachers and Staff will submit the website/app to their Administrator
  2. If it is approved by their Administrator, then it will be submitted to the Student Data Security Manager (SDSM)
  3. The SDSM will go through the privacy policy and terms of service of each submitted website
  4. The SDSM will also view all security protocols listed for the website, including login security. 
  5. If the website is secure, then it will be turned over to Curriculum Department
  6. The Curriculum Department will go through all websites and determine if they are aligned with curriculum and if similar websites are already being used in the district
  7. Once the website/app is approved by the Curriculum Department, it will be routed back to the SDSM
  8. The SDSM will then send the company a personalized Contract for signature
  9. When the Contract is signed and returned to the SDSM, one of two things will happen:  A.  The website will be added to the approved list.  B.  The website will be turned over to development for login sync with district servers and then added to the approved list
  10. After websites are approved, their metadata will then be uploaded to SDPC Resource Registry
