February 15, 2017

May 10, 2017

8:30 AM to 4:00 PM
Sidwell Friends School

Administration of Medication (AOM) is a District of Columbia Department of Health approved program to provide training to unlicensed school staff to enable them to administer medication to students. This blended learning course is made up of two parts. Part one is self-paced, online review of the AOM course content using AOM handouts, video segments, and independent exercises. Part Two is in-person instruction consisting of hands on practice and testing with an instructor. Personnel enrolled will receive training including, but not limited to, in-depth knowledge of medication basics, safety practices, proper and appropriate technique in administering medications via various routes, documentation content and procedures, and recognition and response to common medical conditions. This training is valid for 3 years upon satisfactory completion of all course requirements.

Schools are encouraged to enroll personnel that will be managing student health conditions on a regular basis.

Performing Arts Forum: Breakouts for Band, Chorus, Drama and Dance

February 8, 2017

9:30 AM to 2:30 PM
Gerstell Academy

This Performing Arts Gathering will have separate strands for Dance, Band/Orchestra, Drama and Choral Arts. It will also include a lunch and some informal time.

Participants should bring 25 copies of their schedules and past programs. At a gathering earlier this year, we spend a lot of time talking about schedules and how they worked, so we thought it would be nice if everyone brought 25 copies of their schedules for others to see and take home.

We will begin with a discussion of the tools available. Next, we’ll follow up with a demonstration, break for lunch, and come back for some hands on experimentation, and end by sharing thoughts and ideas about this method of teaching and the tools available.
