Mrs. Goskesen


 
My name is Briana Goskesen. I am a graduate of Winona State University. This is my second year at Lyle Public Schools. I am currently the High School and Middle School Math teacher in Lyle. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have,   

I am using an app called Schoology (also available on the web at https://www.schoology.com/home.php) to communicate assignment and general course information to students and families this year.

District Mission Statement: To partner with the community to empower all students to achieve excellence in a global society. 

Technology Policies
6th -12th Grade Technology Policy

1. Each teacher will have a technology policy for their own classroom. Each policy will clearly define what is acceptable in their classroom.

2. When students violate any of the classroom polices, the device will be taken from them and taken to the office. At the end of the school day, the student may go to the office to pick the item up. The student will need to have the teacher who took the item from them be with them to reclaim the item.

3. When a student reaches a second violation of any teachers' policy, the student will need to have a parent or guardian come to the school for them to get their device back. 3rd offense of privilege of device, the student and parent will need to meet with teacher and administrator to develop alternate plan. This could result in loss of device use for entire school year.

4. These policies will be in effect from 8:10-3:00pm. Students may use devices during their lunch. Students may  use them during passing time between classes.
