Jerrie Williams is a blogger on the Beauregard Daily News website. The name of her blog is C.O.P.E. Community Organized Parents in Education. This blog is syndicated statewide to all GateHouse websites. She will not only be blogging about local education concerns, but information about resources for parental research on different subjects concerning children and their well being. Jerrie Williams is the mother of three autistic children. Her journey began in 1999, when she discovered that her children were not developing according to the national mind stone charts. This was after they had received immunizations and developed reactions to them. She later learned the immunizations contained an agent that her children were allergic to, which led to their developmental delays. She moved her children to Georgia to be treated by a specialist in autism and brain injury in 2000. Since then she has been searching and discovering several research-based interventions and resources to educate, support and assist in the recovery of autism. She moved to Louisiana in August, 2011, and has been involved in educating the community about autism and the resources available to parents of autistic children as well as adults with autism. She has been instrumental in helping the Beauregard Parish school system to design an individualized curriculum that was suited for the educational needs of her children as well as other special needs children. Her children have since blossomed with this curriculum and continue to thrive. She will continue in her journey as a mother and an advocate for others.
The Human Capital Information System is a web-based system that is available to school districts to support their implementation of Compass, the state’s educator evaluation system. Use of the system by school districts is free and voluntary.
With the system:
Additionally, the system automatically calculates evaluation scores from the data entered on observations and student growth.
To get immediate solutions to the most common challenges with the system, please visit the HCIS Help Desk. You will be able to select from a list of frequently asked questions and receive an immediate answer to your question. For all other questions that cannot be answered immediately, the Help Desk staff will aim to respond within 24 business hours of receiving your question.
The Reports feature has been launched! Educators can generate reports with observation ratings to understand what they’re doing well and where they need to grow. School and district leaders can generate reports for those educators they are supervising. Administrators can track progress on all of the employees in their system.
