Here is a survey from Alicia Levitt. Please take a couple of minutes to do this for her. Thanks.

Active Shooter Training

I have contacted Nic Hoffman, an Indiana State Trooper and member at Soest. Ron Galaviz contacted me and we scheduled Wednesday, January 9th at 3pm as the training day.

Once training is done, I'd like to discuss and decide how we at SJE will do those drills and then practice at least once after Christmas and again later in the year.

Take Note

As busy as this time of year gets, I am not planning any staff meetings until after the new year unless something comes up that needs our immediate attention. Only 4 more weeks until Christmas break and the end of another quarter. Man this year is flying by quickly.

Don't forget to setup your AIR account for ILEARN so you can take required TA test

ILEARN/IREAD Required Training is Here Now!

School personnel planning to administer the ILEARN and/or IREAD-3 assessments this year must first complete the required Test Administrator Certification Course. This online training is approximately 30 minutes in length and has been posted to the Indiana Assessment Portal.

Look for the icon that looks like the one on the right. Please let me know when you're done with it so I know all have done it. Deadline to have completed is January 4th.
