Black Oak Mine Makes Lifelong Learning a Priority

This summer Black Oak Mine educators have participated in several training opportunities connected to Local Control Accountability Plan or District-wide and school-wide goals. Additionally, trainings are intended to meet the goals for all students, including specific subgroups of students, in each of the eight state priority areas, plus any locally identified priority areas.


Skillful Leader Training

BOMUSD district administrators joined county administrators in the "Skillful Leader" training, provided by Rescue Unified School District this summer.  The Skillful Leader provides a field-tested tool kit of strategies to improve, teacher practice. The text includes valuable legal notes and a model contract, case studies, assessment tools, and personal accounts of leaders in action. The premise of this work is that in order to meet the need for highly skilled educators we need highly skilled leadership. This leadership presents itself in the form of reforming organizational practice and beliefs that erode commitment to quality and replacing them with those practices that promote excellence.


PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support) Training
37 staff members attended a two day training in PBIS on August 11 and 12th. This group represented the membership of all five BOMUSD schools and was comprised of parents, classified, certificated and administrators. PBIS is one of the most foremost advances in school-wide discipline and relationship building. This is includes proactive strategies for defining, teaching and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments.

Go Math
Georgetown, Otter Creek, and Northside School Staff were trained to implement “California Go Math” this summer. This program was written specifically to support the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics with an emphasis on developing 21st century skills. This program provides rigor, depth of understanding through interactive lessons, research-based instructional approaches, and best practices. This program along with its innovative online access curriculum delivers content rich opportunities for all of our elementary schools this year.


Georgetown, Otter Creek, and Northside School Staff were trained in Guided Language Acquisition and Development or Project GLAD® for four days this summer. GLAD is a model of professional development dedicated to building academic language and literacy for all students. This model enhances teachers’ design and delivery of standards-based instruction through an integrated approach. Project GLAD® classrooms promote an environment that respects and honors each child¹s voice, personal life experience, beliefs and values their culture. Project GLAD® has been recognized as a model reform program by CDE, identified as a training model for multiple Achieving Schools and Distinguished School award winners, recommended as a K-8 project by the California State Superintendent of Schools for teachers of English learners and highlighted as a “Best Practices” program for Title III professional
development by California Department of Education.


Kevin Orris, Amara Smallwood and Stacy Spencer of Golden Sierra Junior/Senior High School were trained in College Preparatory Mathematics this summer. In addition, American River Charter School will be piloting CPM math curriculum as they consider math curriculum adoption this year. CPM Educational Program strives to make middle school and high school mathematics accessible to all students. It does so by collaborating with classroom teachers to create problem-based textbooks and to provide the professional development support necessary to implement them successfully.

Professional Standards for Independence Facilitators
Classified Independence Facilitators participated in a one day in-service on professional standards for those personnel that work with students who have special needs. Topics included reviewing the paraprofessional handbook, PBIS and special education policy and guidelines.

District Budget Presentation

The state continues to struggle to meet its financial obligations. The budget passed in June reflects that difficulty because it is predicated upon future events to balance the budget. Proposition 30 on the November ballot, asks voters to extend taxes in order to balance the budget. If the measure passes, the district budget will remain funded as we proposed in June. If the measure does not pass, we will be required to find ways to cut the budget in January.
