We DO NOT meet as a staff this week. Please meet with your grade level team. You may wish to plan for or discuss student results District Performance Tasks or the CAASPP Interim Assessments; identify a host for TC or anything else of benefit to your team.
Thank you for submitting your chair orders forms. To help us prepare for the big changes ahead, please let me know what questions you have. I will do my best to answer them and/or provide professional development to support us in getting these questions answered.
What questions do you have about the process/timeline?
What professional development/learning would you like?
What questions/procedures would you like time with a grade level or grade level band to address?
Please email me any questions by Friday, March 1st and I will prepare a Frequently Asked Question document and begin exploring resources for professional development.
