In an effort to better reflect the services provided in our special education programs, the Englewood Special Education Leadership Committee has adopted some new program titles. The following are the name changes for programs provided within Englewood Schools: *Please note that the Early Childhood, Speech and Language, and TIES programs will keep their current names.
Learning Support Program (Formerly SHaRE):
This program will serve students with disabilities that have mild to moderate academic delays (generally 1-2 years below grade level). Typically these students in this program are able to be independent in a school setting and their academic support can be provided in class, via a team taught class, or in skills-based pullout group. Students in the Learning Support Program will participate in district and state assessments with or without accommodations, based on the individual’s IEP. Students in this program typically have adequate adaptive and life skills.
Moderate Academic Support Program (Formerly: ADAPT-A):
This program will support students who display moderate/severe academic delays (generally 3-4 years below grade level). Students in this program may need support in some school settings and a modified curriculum or significant accommodations to access the general education curriculum. Often the student’s IEP indicates that academic needs can be met in and outside of general education setting. Students in the Moderate Academic Support Program will participate in district and state assessments with or without accommodations, based on the individual’s IEP. Students in this program typically have some adaptive skill building needs.
Significant Support Program (Formerly ADAPT-D):
The Significant Support Program will serve students with disabilities that display significant academic delays (generally more than 5 years below grade level). Students in this program are typically unable to be independent in one or more life skills (including but not limited to: completing a task, toileting, feeding, accessing the school setting). These students require modified curriculum with accommodations and their core academics are typically taught using a modified curriculum outside of the general education classroom. Students in the Significant Support Program typically qualify for the alternative state and district assessments. Students in this program typically have very impacted adaptive skills.
Affective Needs Program (Formerly BEAM):
Student who access the Affective Needs Program typically display behavioral and/or emotional characteristics that seriously interfere with their learning or the learning of others. These students demonstrate one or more of the following characteristic to a marked degree: lack of emotional regulation, an inability to utilize coping strategies, difficulty with interpersonal skills, aggression, an inability to identify feelings/emotions (in self and/or others), a lack of stress tolerance, and/or extreme difficulty attending to task. Many of the students in this program have been identified as having a Serious Emotional Disability (SED) or a mental health disorder, but they are not student whose sole diagnosis is Social Maladjustment Disorder. Students in this program may need to access individualized support, small group pullout or academic instruction in a separate environment in order to learn. Students in the Affective Needs Program typically participate in district and state assessments with or without accommodations, based on the individual’s IEP.
The Print Shop will have a new web submission for orders this summer. More information to come in early August.
We will also be open throughout the summer. Plan early and get your orders in to get your orders in time.

As we made the decision to cancel summer school for elementary students, we became proactive in creating partnerships and researching opportunities for our students to engage in during the summer months. Below is an outline of the outcomes of this work. Please promote all the opportunities at your school as we will on the district website.
Regis Summer Reading Program
located at Denver Seminary on Santa Fe (45 scholarships)
Englewood Public Library
- Your school's point person has provided student names to Bailey and she is contacting each parent individually to explain the specifics and ensure interest.
- Parents are responding VERY positively and over 14 students are already enrolled
Summer Reading Program that kicks off on June 8.
- The library will provide small incentive rewards for reading all summer long with 2 major drawings for Elitches, Pirate's Cove, etc. along the way and final prizes
- The library will keep track of which school reads the most over the summer and that school will get to house a "reading trophy" with plaque for the entire school year - It will return to the library next summer.
- The library will have activities beginning at 1:00pm every week day for students to engage in
- The library will provide guessing jars weekly with prizes
- Englewood is outfitting the library with 45 backpacks for student checkout. The backpacks will include logic games (think Boggle, Connect Four, cards games) exploration equipment (think butterfly nets and magnifying glasses), wellness games (think frisbee, jump rope) and books
- The library staff is visiting each school to talk with individual classrooms about these opportunities
City of Englewood
- Pizza hut will provide students with a free individual pan pizza for reading. Students can get their "pizza hut" ticket at the Library
- The City of Englewood will serve a free lunch to anyone under 18 at noon every week day at both the Civic Center and Clayton
- Colorado Parent magazine is delivering (or has delivered) enough magazines to each of your schools to go home with the youngest student in each family. The magazine includes parenting articles and list great things to do in Colorado
- This magazine will now come to your school each month of the school year
Englewood Fun Summer Activities Flyer
- The flyer includes free days at local museums and available activities in Englewood (including those listed above)
- The flyer is attached for you to view and we are getting copies made for each school. The flyer and parent magazines could go home together at the same time
We are really excited to engage our students over the summer! Any summer reading goal setting you can do in your schools/classrooms will really help the cause, as it may make students more likely to access the library.
TELL Survey Results are in
Englewood School district had 86.81% of all staff complete the TELL survey compared to 51.06% of all educators in the state of Colorado. Because the response rate was so high, Englewood Educators and Central Office agreed to use the results from the TELL survey en lieu of creating our own second semester Professional Development Survey.
The professional development portion is composed of 14 questions, and in most areas the percentage of teachers in Englewood who agree with the statements is on par with the state average. However, in the following areas, there was a significant difference between the answers of Englewood and the state:
- More Englewood teachers believe that an appropriate amount of time is provided for professional development. (Colorado 66%, Englewood 74%
- Fewer Englewood teachers believe that professional development is differentiated to meet the needs of individual teachers. (Colorado 49%, Englewood 38%)
- More Englewood teachers believe that professional learning opportunities are aligned with the school’s improvement plan. (Colorado 84%, Englewood 90%)
- More Englewood teachers believe that follow-up is provided from professional development in the school. (Colorado 57%, Englewood 65%)
- More Englewood teachers believe that school leadership participates in professional development opportunities with teachers. (Colorado 79%, Englewood 86%)
Englewood Teachers also indicated that their highest needs in the area of PD are:
- Differentiated Instruction
- Closing the Achievement Gap
- Using Technology in Classroom Instruction

child records in Teaching Strategies® GOLD™
online as you wrap up the school year and prepare for fall.

STEPS FOR MANAGING CHILD RECORDS:
Children Transitioning to Kindergarten
- Please follow the OSEP exit process for preschool children with IEPs who are transitioning to kindergarten.

- You may archive portfolios as soon as you are ready.
- After July 2, you may update and transfer child records in order to set up the kindergarten classes and sites.
- If your GOLD™ subscription includes community partners or Head Start programs as well as kindergartens, then child records in the community partner/Head Start sites may ONLY be transferred to district kindergarten sites with written parent/guardian permission. If you cannot obtain written permission from the parent or guardian, archive the preschool record and create a new record for the child in their kindergarten site.
: What if I have already completed OSEP exits and archived the child records? A
: Not a problem. When your kindergarten program is ready to get started (after July 2), they can reactivate child records for returning children and place them in the appropriate classrooms and sites.
Preschool Children Remaining in Preschool in 2015-2016:
Preschool Children Leaving Your Preschool Program (moving away or dis-enrolling from the preschool program):

delete the user account. Deleting user accounts will permanently erase their Basic Course and Interrater Reliability records.
3. User accounts can be transferred at CDE’s organizational level. If you have hired someone who previously had a user account in another system, complete the transfer request at:
and we will move the teacher/administrator account to the new location. This has no bearing on child records. It is restricted to the staff member information.

Enrich will Replace SchoolNet
Englewood School District will no longer be using SchoolNet in the 2015-2016 school year. Instead, we will move to a system supported by the state of Colorado called Enrich. Enrich will produce a student dashboard and has the ability to create and modify all student plans (excepting IEPs). Users will be trained on Enrich in the fall and some teachers have already begun implementation this year.
