Gadsden ISD Math Scores are Growing! Special guests visit our high scoring schools!
**Sunrise Elementary, North Valley Elementary, Loma Linda Elementary, and Desert View Elementary**
You are not seeing things, it is two creatures named Snargg and Plory. They are visiting to celebrate five of our schools for high gains in math scores! Snargg and Plory have been the online guides for the students in the "Iready" math program. Snargg and Plory visited schools that have demonstrated over 1 year of expected growth (average across the school). Meaning the 5 schools demonstrated large amounts of growth from the beginning of year window to middle of year instructional window!
Sunrise Elementary's math scores had extremely high growth and received the first visit but there were also visits at North Valley, Loma Linda, Riverside, and Desert View.
Children Youth and Families Department Offers Text Based Hotline
The Children Youth and Families Department (CYFD) has recently started a new hotline called Reach NM. Reach NM (505) 591-9444, is a text-based hotline which was started to help youth, families, and professionals within the community connect with a CYFD advocate to report child abuse or neglect, refer youth and families to needed community services, and anyone can reach out 24/7 to chat about any struggles they may be facing. Our text advocates are trained to chat with texters who may be overwhelmed by depression/suicide, body image, bullying, unhealthy or unsafe relationships, homelessness, and peer pressure. I have attached our flyer here.
Reach NM also serves as an available method for teachers or school staff who may need to report an incident of child abuse or neglect and would like to do so via text.
El Departamento de Niños, Jóvenes y Familias (CYFD, por sus siglas en inglés) inauguró recientemente una nueva línea directa llamada Reach NM. Reach NM (505) 591-9444, es una línea directa basada en texto que se inició para ayudar a los jóvenes, las familias y los profesionales dentro de la comunidad a conectarse con un defensor de CYFD para denunciar el abuso o la negligencia infantil, derivar a los jóvenes y las familias a los servicios comunitarios necesarios, y cualquiera puede comunicarse las 24 horas del día, los 7 días de la semana para conversar sobre cualquier problema que pueda estar enfrentando. Nuestros defensores de mensajes de texto están capacitados para conversar con personas que pueden sentirse abrumadas por depresión/suicidio, imagen corporal, intimidación, relaciones insalubres o inseguras, personas sin hogar y presión de grupo. He adjuntado nuestro folleto aquí.
Reach NM también sirve como un método disponible para maestros o personal escolar que necesiten reportar un incidente de abuso o negligencia infantil y deseen hacerlo por mensaje de texto.
