Remote Learning Plan

Hello West Leadership Academy Students and Families,
March 13th seems so long ago when we last saw our students, I hope that everyone is staying safe and isolated during this time of Extended Spring Break. We miss our students so very much; we hope that we will be able to see them before the end of the year. First, we want to ensure that our students and families have access to resources to ensure their safety and well-being.

Remote Learning:
We will begin Remote Learning on Tuesday April 7th for all students. Please read through the plan for the detailed schedule, students will follow their schedule with shortened classes on Orange (Tuesdays & Thursdays) and Black (Wednesday & Fridays) days. Mondays will be a day of planning for teachers. Many of the middle school students have already picked up Chromebooks and chargers last week. There will be another opportunity to pick up devices on Monday, April 6th. We will continue to reach out to families this week to ensure that devices are in the hands of students by April 7th. All High School students were previously issued a device through the MyTech grant earlier this year. Jaime Gomez is coordinating the effort to get devices out to families. Please reach out to him directly through if you have any questions at Jaime_Gomez@dpsk12.org.
 
On Tuesday, April 7th, classes will resume through a virtual format using applications and devices that your students have been working with throughout the year in their classrooms. We will interact with students primarily in Google Classroom. Some High School classes will be using Edgenuity or Schoology. Students will be accessing their classes through Google Classroom; teachers will be sending students’ access information through their DPS Google Student Email. Students and families please know that at this time the best way to communicate with teachers is through their email. We will be providing a list of all teachers’ Google Voice numbers by next week.
 
Learning
We recognize that learning will look different next week. Our teachers have worked hard to shift to this virtual format; this is a completely new for most of them. I am continually amazed by our teachers’ dedication and commitment to WLA students. They have been learning and working together over that last week to design this new experience for students. I ask that we all operate with patience and kindness as we learn together. There will be mistakes and things that may not go as well as planned; teachers and students are learning alongside each other. This entire experience should bring about an evolution in education! When students have completed their daily work, they should try to get caught up on late or missing work.
 
Advisory
Advisory will be scheduled Tuesday through Friday at 11:15 EACH day. Students are expected to check in with their Advisor each day through a Google Meets Hangout. Advisory teachers will be sending students links through Google Classroom. Advisory time will give students the opportunity to check in with their Advisor, stay a part of the community, problem solve issues, engage in mindfulness, socialization and digital citizenship.
 
Attendance/Engagement
All students are encouraged to log in and participate with their teachers in this remote learning opportunity. Attendance will look a bit different; we will be looking and tracking student engagement. Students need to participate by completing assignments in Google Classroom as assigned by their teachers. Though the schedule is flexible, teachers will be tracking student engagement which will be marked as attendance. We will be communicating more as DPS systems become more defined in the coming weeks. Please call the attendance line, should students become ill and are unable to engage in Google Classroom.
 
Please know that this is a difficult time and I want to assure all students and families that we are in this together. WLA has provided our students and staff with a strong community, we have grown reliant on each other through the years; we will continue to support each student. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
Sincerely,
Teresa Sena Klava
Principal

Update on Principal Selection Process

March 9, 2020
Letter to Superintendent Cordova recommending appointment of interim principal for 2020/2021 while West Campus explores unification.

 


 

February 19, 2020
Dear West Leadership Academy Staff, Students families and Community,

This letter is to provide the WLA community with an update on the principal selection process.

The WLA Board of Advisors (BOA) met yesterday, Tuesday, February 18, to start the initial steps of the selection process by finalizing the principal search timeline, reviewing next steps for creating a School Principal Selection Advisory Committee (SPSAC) and gathering information on what the WLA community is looking for in their next leader.

With any principal selection committee, there are certain steps we must take to ensure that the committee members and the community-at-large are confident and clear with the process. We will begin steps next week to review the principal selection process with the BOA who will be responsible for recommending a School Principal Selection Advisory Committee (SPSAC).  The SPSAC will be comprised of a combination of parents/guardians and staff members who represent the diversity of the WLA community. The SPSAC will work with me to synthesize the community feedback about the essential characteristics of the next WLA leader and interview the top 3-5 candidates, and recommend the top 2-3 candidates to participate in subsequent steps of the process to include a Learning Walk and Community Forum.

WLA highly values the voices of all our stakeholders. To honor this, we would like to invite staff, students, parents and community members to serve on the SPSAC and focus groups for the interview process. If you are interested in participating, please submit your application at http://bit.ly/32haOQc, pick up an application in the WLA main office, or call the Family & Community Helpline at 720-423-3054. Please note that applications are due by Sunday, March 1, 2020 @ 8am so the Board of Advisors can review and select the SPSAC.

We also want to remind you that we are continuing to seek your input in determining the characteristics you would like to see in the principal. You may provide your input at http://bit.ly/38pgJoD, pick up a hard copy of the survey in the WLA main office, or call the Family & Community Helpline at 720-423-3054. Please submit the survey by Friday, February 28, 2020 @ 5pm.

Lastly, please see the following timeline of the steps of the process. This is to help you better understand what to expect and what the commitments are should you decide to apply to be a part of this SPSAC.

Thank you for your support as we work together during this transitional period. In the meantime, please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have.

Sincerely,

Nicole Veltzé
NW Regional Instructional Superintendent

Estimados personal, estudiantes, familias y comunidad de la Academia West Leadership:

Esta carta tiene la finalidad de actualizar a la comunidad de la Academia West Leadership con respecto al proceso de selección del director.

El Comité Asesor (BOA, por su sigla en inglés) de la Academia West Leadership se reunió ayer, el martes 18 de febrero, para dar comienzo al proceso de selección al revisar el cronograma, los próximos pasos para crear el Comité Asesor para la Selección del Director (SPSAC, por su sigla en inglés) y hablar sobre las características que la comunidad de la Academia West Leadership desea que reúna el próximo líder.

Al igual que con cualquier comité de selección de director, deben darse ciertos pasos para garantizar que los miembros del comité y la comunidad en general se sientan confiados y tengan claro cuál es el proceso. Comenzaremos a dar los pasos la próxima semana para revisar el proceso de selección del director con el BOA, responsable de hacer recomendaciones para la creación del Comité Asesor para la Selección del Director de Escuela (SPSAC).  El SPSAC estará integrado por una combinación de padres/tutores legales y miembros del personal que representen la diversidad de la comunidad de la Academia West Leadership. El SPSAC trabajará con nosotros para sintetizar los comentarios de la comunidad sobre las características esenciales del próximo líder de la Academia West Leadership, entrevistar de 3 a 5 posibles candidatos y recomendar a los 2 o 3 candidatos finalistas para participar en los siguientes pasos del proceso, que incluirán un recorrido de aprendizaje y un foro comunitario.

La Academia West Leadership valora en gran medida la opinión de todas nuestras partes interesadas. Fieles a esta consigna, queremos solicitar la participación del personal, estudiantes, padres y miembros de la comunidad en el SPCAC y en los grupos de enfoque durante el proceso de entrevistas. Si les interesa participar, presenten su solicitud en http://bit.ly/32haOQc, recojan una solicitud en la oficina principal de la escuela o llamen a la línea directa para las familias y la comunidad al 720-423-3054. Tengan en cuenta que las solicitudes deben entregarse, a más tardar, el domingo, 1 de marzo de 2020, a las 8am para que el CSC pueda revisarlas y seleccionar el SPSAC.

También, nos gustaría contar con su opinión para determinar las características que desean que tenga el director. Pueden compartir sus comentarios en http://bit.ly/38pgJoD, buscar un ejemplar impreso de la encuesta en la oficina principal de la Academia West Leadership o llamar a la línea de ayuda para las familias y la comunidad al 720-423-3054. Les pedimos que entreguen la encuestas, a más tardar, el viernes, 28 de febrero de 2020 a las 5 p. m.

Por último, consulten a continuación el cronograma de los pasos del proceso. Esto les ayudará a entender mejor cuáles son las expectativas y los compromisos que asumirán si deciden ser parte del SPSAC.

Gracias por su apoyo y colaboración durante este período de transición. Mientras tanto, no duden en comunicarse conmigo si tienen alguna pregunta.

Atentamente.

Nicole Veltzé
Superintendente de instrucción regional del noroeste

50 Years Later

Remembering the West High School Blowout

50 years ago, students of color were oppressed due to their ethnicity, the way they looked, and the languages they spoke.  Chicano students at West decided they’d had enough so they made a list of demands to stand up to the racism they faced everyday and to improve their education.  They wanted bilingual education and Chicano studies integrated into their classes, and they wanted respect from teachers and staff. A walkout was coordinated with the help of Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales, the head of the Chicano organization Crusade for Justice.

On March 20th, 1969, approximately one hundred and fifty students walked out of class.  Students marched to Baker and then back to West, where they were met by police officers.  Tensions escalated quickly.  Police reacted aggressively and used tear gas to disperse the crowd.  The next day, students of all ethnicities walked out of several other Denver high schools and met in front of West in solidarity.  There were over a thousand protesters.  Because of the clashes with police the previous day, the demonstration quickly exploded into chaos and violence, which is why the West High School Walkout became known as the West High School Blowout.  In the end, 25 people were arrested and 6 were injured.

This week students participated in a variety of activities to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the blowout.  We analyzed the poem “Yo Soy Joaquin”, which was written by Corky Gonzales in the 60’s, and explored our own identities.  The band Los Mocochetes and the Su Teatro theater troupe performed for us.  We learned from Lita Gonzales what is was like to be Chicano in Denver in the 60’s, and we compared and contrasted how things were then to how they are today.  On March 21st, community members gathered in front of the school for a symbolic march to Su Teatro, reenacting the walkout of 1969.

Link to 9 News story about the blowout – This story features Principal Teresa Klava and Assistant Principal Mia Martinez, “daughters of two men who were a part of the West High School blowout”, both now leaders at West.

Día de los Muertos

The West Campus remembered and honored those who have passed away while learning more about our cultural roots by participating in Día de los Muertos.  During the morning students and staff created ofrendas, drank hot chocolate, ate pan dulce, got their faces painted, and listened to storytellers.  Alumni and families joined us in the afternoon for performances by students and community organizations, including Grupo Tlaloc Danza Azteca, Fiesta Colorado Dance Company, and Mariachi Sol de Mi Tierra.

Good Luck Class of 2018, Welcome Class of 2022
