Spring Break PD

Most educators are so ready for some R & R when Spring Break comes they don't want to think about school. I get it. I usually "veg out" my fair share during breaks. Some may be looking for learning opportunities or ways to complete a PLP so I am listing some PD sources of interest. Take part if interested.

Thanks to Mrs. Madison for encouraging participation in Digital Learning Day at S9! I also appreciate all who participated and tweeted about it. We have a great school for the public to see. Your social media posts help so much.

Educate Alabama

Spring Break may be a good time for everyone to add evidence to Educate Alabama. No one wants to wait until May to work on a PLP. Try to get information entered soon so the process can be finalized.

ACIP Goals

STAR Testing begins on March 30. Scores from this assessment will be used to measure at-risk student growth. Our ACIP includes goals to show growth in achievement from those students. They will need encouragement to give their full effort. Please help in this area.
