RCMA Charter Community Academies - Curriculum Adoption Updates
To address a concern or seek resolution for a problem, we ask parents to address the situation in the following manner. This will be the most productive way to address academic, behavior and other concerns.
1) First, address the problem with the teacher or other staff member directly. Remain calm and state your concerns respectfully and with as much detail as possible. Be open to hearing other sides of the issue.
2) If after this discussion your concern remains unresolved we ask that you speak to the Principal or the Director of After School Programs, should it be an after school concern.
3) If you remain unsatisfied, continue working through the problem up the “chain of support” by speaking with the RCMA Director of Charter Schools.
4) Should it be necessary, the next step is to address matter with the RCMA Executive Director.
Complaints that remain unresolved may then be addressed to the RCMA Board through a written formal complaint process.

Managing behavior in a classroom could be one of the most stressful and challenging things for teachers. Having appropriate skills to manage behavior in the classroom should improve the quality of teaching and help you to decrease the levels of stress. The purpose of this section is to share things that could help us to deal with behavior issues effectively.
“Welcome to the RCMA mindfulness page! Mindfulness is the practice of keeping a non-judgmental awareness on the present moment. Mindfulness can relieve stress, improve sleep, lower blood pressure, reduce chronic pain, and improve overall mental health. Mindfulness is not tied to any religion, and it doesn’t require hours of silent meditation. It’s a practice you can use anywhere and anytime during your everyday life. Take a look at the below Mindfulness Memos for more information.”

COPING WITH ANXIETY AND STRESS

Well-being is the experience of health, happiness, and prosperity. Key factors over which an individual has some control: biology (i.e., body condition and fitness), environment, lifestyle, and health care management (Psychology Today).
How we experience life is very important to our wellness. Our experience is greatly influenced by our perception of what is to be a happy, healthy, and prosperous person and what we think is the best way to experience life itself. Sometimes we make the mistake to compare our life with the life of others, instead of realizing that we are unique and therefore being happy, healthy, and prosperous should be an individual experience. The purpose of this section is to provide a guide to those different areas related to wellness.
