Transition Plus Sep 17
May your coffee be strong, and your students be calm
A friendly reminder: If you have information that needs to go out to the whole staff, and it can wait until Monday, submit it to be included in the MMM. We are trying to cut down on all staff emails.
15 Day Drop
Monday, 9/17 is the 15th day of school.
Students who have not attended need to be dropped on Tuesday, 9/18.
Based on attendance and who has not been etagged, we have an idea of who should be dropped. However, some students may not have full schedules, so their attendance may not show up as not attending.
Please fill out a Student Withdrawal Form so Melissa/and or Traci, can properly withdraw students. Forms are by the staff sign out book next to Jason's office.
Please remember to take attendance on Fridays. This factors in for 15 day drops.
New building update
As we are moving to the new building, I know there are questions about the details.
On September 18th our PD meeting will be talking about the move and what that will look like. Chad Carr will be joining us to be able to help with details about packing and the move.
Our tour dates have been postponed as the time we were originally scheduled for will be quite busy with completion of the building. We are hoping to get into the building the week of October 7th. Stay tuned for dates and times of tours for staff.
Equity Follow Up
They are under a Creative Commons license, so as long as you include the Creative Commons citation you can use and distribute for free.
Rie put a link on that sheet to the Presencing Institute's official set of questions (a bit different, but layed out more like a lesson plan with preparation and follow up suggestions).
The Field of the Future visualization is not on their site, which means they are holding it a bit closer to the vest. Anyone can sign up for the ULab Massive Online Open Course (MOOC), where it will be presented in the very first live session on September 20 - it will be recorded as well so course participants can watch at their convenience.
Here is the link to the 90-minute, self-paced introductory course, open now: https://www.edx.org/course/ulab-leading-change-in-times-of-disruption
And here is the link to the full ULab 4-month course, registration open now and coursework opening September 13: https://www.edx.org/course/ulab-leading-from-the-emerging-future-15-671-1x-1
Please consider defining who your equity partner is for conversation to review items and topics that come up throughout the year.
