OCTOBER 18 WEBINAR – ROCK THE DECA EXAM 

The webinar this Thursday will provide some great information that you can share with your students on the development of the DECA exams. We will also be providing some tips on how to study for the exam and for those that attend FLC, how to make the most of the practice tests being provided by Washington DECA.   Log in here for the webinar at 3:00 pm or it will be archived and posted on Teach DECA by the end of the week.

FLC CURFEW REMINDERS 

For those of you that are brand new to DECA and FLC, here are just a couple of reminders regarding curfew and what it means: 
*Curfew means students in their assigned room for the evening – 6:00 am is typically when doors may open again. 

  • Curfew meetings can be held (if you wish to do this) to go over next day's agenda, and then students need to go to rooms for the evening (no ice, snacks, running around, etc.) 
  • Bed checks should be done at the scheduled curfew time (men should do boys, women should do girls) 
  • Masking tape can be used to assure doors are not opened again. Tear a piece of tape about 3 inches long, rip it ALMOST in half, then tape each end to door jamb and door respectively at the bottom or very top of the door.  If door is opened, tape will rip completely and you will know that the door was opened.  I always told my students I did this "to protect them, not because I didn't trust them."  If there was trouble, I could say with certainty, "it was not my students." P.S. you will have to get up at 6:00 am to remove the tape/check the doors!
