The ESY Lead Teacher

Fort Bend provides one person at each ESY campus to serve as Lead Teacher.

In particular:Observe classroom instruction and provide guidance and support. Assist teachers in obtaining instructional materials. Collect required paperwork from all ESY staff. Provide staff training. Serve as contact person for parents.

Classroom Support and Monitoring Instruction that is provided during ESY is to be well planned highly engaging, and aligned with the students IEP goals. Types of materials that Lead Teachers may be looking for in your classrooms are:Adapted technology devices used by the student during the school year. Textbooks and supplemental materials needed to teach IEP concepts. Visual schedules. Communication systems (augmentative devices, communication boards, etc).Consumables that are routinely used effectively with the student (reinforcers, workbooks, etc). Any other materials that will be necessary for the ESY teacher to teach the IEP that you have developed.

What to do with co-worker issues? Remain professional at all times. Our main focus is educating our students. If you are unable to resolve the issue, contact your Lead Teacher to set up a private meeting.

What to do with student behavior issues? Use your experience to remedy the situation. If you need assistance contact the Lead Teacher.All restraints must be documented promptly. Parents will be contacted as a last resort by Lead Teacher.

Safety and Hygiene ProceduresA safety plan must be developed for each room. This plan should include what safety procedures are in place during transitions, bathroom, etc. No sprays may be used in the classroom. This includes anything brought from home, Lysol, etc.Only Wex-Cide may be used as a disinfectant. This will be provided by SERS. You must use a floor covering if you are cooking or preparing food on a carpeted area. There should be no eating in the classrooms, unless you are doing a specific cooking activity. Wash hands often during the day.

Safety and Hygiene ProceduresDiapering/Adaptive EquipmentALWAYS wear gloves when changing diapers!!!Additionally, gloves should be worn when there is any contact with blood or other potentially infectious body fluid is anticipated.
