-What is the current punishment or repercussion for taking videos of teachers/ other students

-Clarifying what the punishment would be would help this

-Reminder of board policy

-Put guidelines done on what you can and can’t do

-No one has ever been yelled at for having their phone out

-There is an emergency element to having access to phone- IMPORTANT**

-A one time thing that most likely won’t happen again

PSA Evaluation Rubric

NOTE: PSAs should be serious in nature and NO MORE than 2 minutes in length

 

Excellent Great Good Fair
Emotional Appeal

 

Images (video footage, graphics, and still images) and audio (narration and music) combined to create a strong emotional appeal. Many visual and audio elements contributed toward establishing an effective emotional appeal. Some visual and audio elements attempted to create an emotional appeal, but may not have been completely effective. No emotional appeal was made.
Use of Logic Facts, statistics, or other forms of supporting evidence were included and displayed to present a strong logical argument as to why a need for action exists. An appropriate amount of supporting evidence was included to provide an argument for action. Some supporting evidence illustrating the need for action was included, but more would have provided a stronger argument. No supporting evidence to show a need for action or change was included.
Call for action/ Advertisement of upcoming activity and fundraisers A strong call for clear action was included in a memorable way and throughout. PSA ends with the viewer knowing exactly what the producer of the video wants him/her to do. A call for action was included, but could have been presented with greater strength or clarity. A call for action may have been suggested, but needed greater strength or clarity.     No call for action was included.
Structure The PSA immediately and strongly grabs the attention and curiosity of the viewer and keeps it throughout the entire length. The opening of the PSA attracts the attention of the viewer, which the viewer maintains throughout. The PSA adequately attracts the attention of the viewer, but may not work to keep the viewer strongly interested throughout. The PSA does not stimulate enough interest from opening to close.
Mechanics All transitions are used effectively and purposefully, are not distracting in nature. Audio is clear and balanced throughout the entire video.  Music is used well throughout the entire video, when appropriate. Most transitions are used effectively.  Audio is mostly clear and balanced.  Music is used well throughout most of the video, when appropriate. Some transitions are used effectively, but some may have been distracting or unnecessary. Audio may be muddy, unbalanced in spots, and/or contains too much background noise.  Music is used well throughout some of the video, when appropriate, but at times may fail to parallel the proper tone and/or mood of the segment. Transitions are not used at all or are used poorly. Audio is completely muddy, unclear, or out of balance. Music is used ineffectively or not used at all (when its use would have enhanced the video).
