WHAT IS ACEEF?
Several years ago a group of friends and neighbors got together to encourage new approaches to public education; they knew that innovative teaching had to be celebrated and rewarded. So they launched a fundraising campaign to endow a program of grants to teachers, students and community members for a wide variety of projects which just can't be anticipated or included in the school budget.
Thus was born the Addison Central Educational Endowment Fund (ACEEF). Under the Addison Central School District's non-profit status, ACEEF is governed by a community-based Board of Directors drawn from the district's member towns. ACEEF was established to promote excellence and opportunity for students and teachers in the Addison Central School District. The Endowment Fund raises money to support innovative programs which are beyond the scope of the schools' budgets. Since it was established in 1989, ACEEF has awarded over 300 grants benefiting every school in ACSD.
The innovative partnership that the Addison County community has forged with its schools with the creation of ACEEF has provided an excellent opportunity for our teachers, students and community members to develop unique and unusual projects for the benefit of students without the bureaucratic requirements that often plague grant development.
• Support creative opportunities that stimulate students' interest and learning.
• Encourage programs that generate enthusiasm and personal initiative among teachers, students, parents, and community members.
• Encourage students to broaden their intellectual and cultural horizons.
• Strengthen public support for, and awareness of, the school system.
ACEEF CRITERIA FOR GRANT PROPOSALS
• Proposals that encourage excellence and most closely approach ACEEF goals.
• Projects not traditionally funded by tax funds.
• Potential for sharing project concepts with other schools.
• Attention should be paid to distribution of awards throughout ACSD.
(Grants are awarded once a year. Deadline for grant application is early to mid-October of each year. Exact dates of grant application deadlines will be posted as they become available. Grant money will be available for projects from November 8 through May 15 of the following year.)

PowerSchool Professional Learning is a tool we use to track our staff's professional development throughout the year. This serves three main purposes.
- Funding Requests for Courses/Workshops: ACSD will pay for teachers to take a certain number of professional development courses and workshops throughout the year. If you are interested in pursuing professional development outside of ACSD, log into PowerSchool Professional Learning and fill out an External Credit Request (see instructions on the home page).*
- Once you have completed a course/workshop, you MUST submit an official certificate of completion or transcript within 4 weeks (or you may be responsible for reimbursing the district for the cost of the program).
Note: For requests made via the older "Jotform" system, please submit your certificates via the legacy Jotform.
- Once you have completed a course/workshop, you MUST submit an official certificate of completion or transcript within 4 weeks (or you may be responsible for reimbursing the district for the cost of the program).
- Tracking Local Professional Development: Throughout the year, ACSD hosts a number of locally-designed and implemented professional development sessions (and provides certificates for re-licensure). These are tracked here.
- Mandatory Trainings: All staff are required to take a certain number of online trainings each year (as required by the state). These trainings are hosted here.
*Note: According to the ACSD-ACEA Master Agreement, "All requests for the payment of tuition credits or for salary schedule movement must be approved by the Superintendent prior to enrollment" (p. 25). Each External Credit Request requires approval by three people in order, so it's a good idea to allow at least 2 weeks for this process to run its course. To avoid delays, be sure to complete all sections of the form, attach detailed supporting documentation, and click the correct funding box. Please contact Owen Prescott with questions (firstname.lastname@example.org, 382-1287). If after two weeks you have not received final approval for your request, you may find it helpful to call Owen who can check where the form is in our system.
Professional Learning and Collaboration
ACSD's professional development goal for 2023-2024 is to rebuild community and strengthen systems of support to ensure access, success, and belonging for ALL.
Major initiatives include
- A K-8 focus on Responsive Classroom and a 9-12 focus on Restorative Practices to invest in community, connection, and building a strong foundation of belonging to support positive behavior and academic success.
- Role-specific training to strengthen our Multi-Tiered System of Supports. For example, classroom teachers will focus on refining their IB curricula through the lens of Universal Design for Learning (UDL); interventionists will study Response to Intervention (RtI) alongside building leaders and co-design improved intervention systems; special educators will learn the ins and outs of special education rule changes; nurses and counselors will focus on health and wellness curriculum collaboration.

In the 2017-2018 school year, a team of faculty members and administrators from ACSD and Middlebury College engaged in professional learning centered around issues of educational equity and research-based professional development school models. That team drafted a mission statement and goals to guide the design of what will be the Addison Central Middlebury Partnership (ACMP) Professional Development School (PDS).
Mission Statement: The ACMP PDS, through a commitment to democratic inquiry, prepares and sustains educators to be knowledgeable, principled, courageous decision makers to create a more just, compassionate, and peaceful world.
Goals: To embody the commitment to equity and access to every aspect of the curriculum, the ACMP PDS has has four main goals:
- P-12 students: Increase learning for all students through creating transformative learning environments where effective curricular, instructional, and organizational practices are used to ensure that all students reach their full potential as students and as persons;
- Teacher candidates: Provide teacher candidates with consistent opportunities to learn the craft of teaching and learning to high and inclusive standards through systematic school-based practice;
- P-16 faculty and staff: Provide meaningful, reflective professional development for school and college faculty and staff, based on their evolving needs and collaboratively developed by them;
- Research and communication: Support scholarly inquiry and the advancement of knowledge in teaching and learning, especially through collaboratively designed inquiry, and engage the local community to share learning.
If you would like to know more about the ACMP PDS, contact:
Jonathan Miller-Lane, Associate Professor of Education, Middlebury College, email@example.com
Courtney Krahn, Director of Teaching and Learning, Addison Central School District, firstname.lastname@example.org
Tracy Weston, Assistant Professor of Education Studies, Middlebury College, email@example.com
Connecting to the IB Program Resource Center (My IB) for the first time:
My IB is part of the IB’s initiative to make things easier for you by providing IB educators with access to multiple IB systems using one username and password. The first step is to get you registered.
Once registered, you will use your My IB login to:
- access the essential resources and teacher support materials you need to fulfil your IB role. For example, in July, we are launching the Programme Resource Centre which will replace the Online Curriculum Centre (OCC) as the place to go for essential IB curriculum resources
- join the peer-to-peer Programme Communities, part of an online network of Communities of Practice which replace the forums on the OCC
The OCC will be phased out gradually to ensure that IB educators have sufficient time to register and start using My IB.
Three steps to register:
Step 1: Go to the My IB homepage to register. You will receive an email to confirm your registration.
Step 2: Log into My IB > click on 'IB roles' > select and register for the role(s) you fulfil at your school. One person can register for more than one role as relevant.
Step 3: After registering, your IB coordinator will receive an email to confirm your details. Once confirmed, you can login to My IB and, from July, access the Programme Resource Centre and Programme Communities other applications.

ACSD has created a Digital Learning Plan. In September 2017, we formed a council of stakeholders from across the district to build a plan to support a progressive digital learning environment. This has been a great time to do this for several reasons: our recent unification into a single school district, our work to become an IB World District, and a simultaneous call to action from the state.
ACSD envisions a digital learning environment that aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people and one that prepares all PK-12 students to become global citizens in a digitally connected world. Therefore, we believe that a digital learning environment is one where:
- Students are at the center of the learning process and decisions that affect it
- Educators empower students to take greater control of their learning
- Students, educators, and leaders are responsible to integrate technology to enhance learning
We are excited about the work ahead to move this plan into practice over the next three years.
What is Clever?
Clever is a secure pipeline between your district's data and the learning applications that you and your students use. We help your district's IT office provide applications with all the information they need to be seamlessly set up for your school to use.
Clever Instant Login is our single-sign-on solution, allowing users to log into applications with a single set of credentials, configured at the district level. With the ease of only one username and password, Clever can help teachers reclaim valuable class time. Students and teachers can open their devices, sign into the Clever Portal, and click on their connected applications to automatically access the online learning program!
How do I log in to Clever as a teacher?
Go to your district's Clever Portal:
What are Clever Badges?
Clever Badges are perfect for students who have trouble typing or remembering complex passwords- especially younger learners. Badges allow students to hold up a physical badge to their device's webcam to get logged in, instead of typing in usernames and passwords. Teachers get more time to teach, and students get more time to learn!
How do Clever Badges work?
- Students navigate to clever.com/badges and click “Allow” in the browser prompt to give Clever access to their camera.
- The webcam will activate and students should hold up their Badge to the camera. Once the code is scanned the screen border will flash green.
- Students will then be redirected to their Clever dashboard.
Students may also log in on Chromebooks using their Clever badge. If your school is not currently set up to do this, please send us a tech ticket and we will get it set up.
How do I get Clever Badges?
Clever badges need to be initially set up by the tech dept. Please submit a tech ticket to get started.
How can I add an app to the Clever Portal?
Not all apps or websites are available to add to the Clever portal. Contact the tech dept. to check availability.
ACSD is a member of the Student Data Privacy Consortium (SDPC), a nationally recognized organization dedicated to protecting the digital privacy of students.

How to Pre-Register Students in PowerSchool
Correctly pre-registering students will create a student record with an enroll status of -1 (Pre-Registered). It also creates a pending enrollment that will become active during nightly process at 12 am on the date entered on the "Enroll New Student" page.
This article is intended for administrators, counselors, and registrars.
To pre-register a student for the upcoming school year, follow the steps below.
- Select the school the student will be enrolled in next year.
Change the term at the top of the page to the year term for the upcoming school year. - Bolded because this step is easily overlooked
Navigate to Start Page > Special Functions > Enroll New Student.
Populate the fields. For the enrollment date, enter the first day of the upcoming school year. Also, verify that the grade level and school are correct for the upcoming school year.
- Submit the page.
Don't forget to change your terms BACK to the current term when you are done!
Correctly pre-registering students will create a student record with an enroll_status of -1 (Pre-Registered). The students School Enrollment will remain inactive until 12 am on the date entered on the "Enroll New Student" page. At that time, the nightly process will change the students enroll_status to 0 (Active).
Students that are incorrectly pre-registered may receive an enroll status of 0 (Active) and will be promoted during End-of-Year (EOY) process. They will also receive a dual enrollment and re-enrollment record resulting in duplicate numbers on the enrollment summary report.
