2015-2020 Strategic Plan Community Meetings
Posted: 04/21/2015
Five years ago, the 2009-2014 Districtwide Strategic Framework was developed with a singular goal - student achievement. This work established a common language across all facets of the District underscoring the belief that students always come first. We have now embarked on the work of developing the District's 2015-2020 Strategic Plan. This provides us a unique opportunity to establish a blueprint that will position the District towards its continued evolution into a world-class education system. In our efforts to inform and engage vital stakeholder groups regarding this planning process, four community meetings will be held across the District. The meeting for the Central Region will take place Tuesday, April 28, 2015 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm at Miami Senior High School (2450 SW 1st Avenue, Miami, Florida 33135). We encourage all families to attend.

Her project was "Magnetic Muon Funnel", in which she worked in our physics lab with cosmic ray muons, secondary radiation particles bombarding Earth's atmosphere, deflecting them with a magnetic field with the ultimate goal of generating an electric current of muons that could be used in lieu of an electron-based one.

Meningococcal Meningitis Information
Posted: 10/20/2014
Adolescents face an increased risk of contracting meningococcal disease (meningitis), which is a rare, but potentially fatal illness that may strike without warning. In some cases - even with treatment - meningitis can kill an otherwise healthy young person within less than 48 hours. An adolescent can become infected with meningitis through close personal contact with an infected person. Children should avoid sharing water bottles or eating utensils. Other behaviors that may increase the risk of infection include: remaining in a crowded environment for a prolonged period of time, kissing, smoking, or exposure to smoke and participating in other activities that may weaken the immune system, such as failing to get adequate sleep. Meningitis symptoms may include fever, headaches, and nausea and may resemble flu-like symptoms. Other symptoms include stiff neck, numbness, or loss of feeling, light sensitivity, or confusion. The risk of infection can be greatly reduced through meningococcal vaccination, which is available for children under the age of 18. For symptoms of viral or bacterial meningitis please refer to the http://comprehensivehealthservices.dadeschools.net under “Health Issues."
