Character Trait- Responsibility


The Offices of Staff Services and Data, Assessment, and Planning are hosting training on how to access district curriculum and generate data reports from SchoolNet. The district's goal is for all curriculum to be accessed through SchoolNet by second semester. Schoolnet will also serve as a place for teachers to access longitudinal data on the students currently on their roster. Teachers will need to know how to access both curriculum and student data in Schoolnet. This training will be different than the other Schoolnet training provided up to this point.

Dates still available include:

10/20, 10/27, 10/28

All trainings will be at Dix Road from 4:00-5:00 p.m. Register on MyLearningPlan to attend.
