FOCUS from Cabinet...
Middle and High Principals need to know that AD’s wrote a rule that is now in the athletic tab on the web site. The new rule states that any person who puts false information related to residency will lose eligibility for the remainder of the school year. This includes students who do not complete a residency form.
Note regarding Professional Development- Superintendent does not have to sign travel form if the travel is within 50 miles including Charlotte.
Dr. Kokolis and Mr. Wilks worked on transfers Friday. Schools will receive completed requests this week.
Assessment for the SLO training- Secondary March 12 and Elementary March 19 (trainers for school level). These individuals will have another half day session.
There will be another component at leadership on March 24 (Revised template and looking at exemplars of SLO’s).
Elementary- Learning more about summer reading. We will be finding out about the amount of money for summer reading.
Elaine will be determining the date for teacher forum tour of district soon.
Communication audit will occur soon. Cyberwoven will conduct the audit. There will be a focus group of principals. We will let you know more about this.
Please review the 5 year technology plan (it will be uploaded in Canvas under leadership).
There will be a technology audit during the months of March and April. There will be focus groups within the district. More information will be shared.
Contract recommendations need to be made as quickly as possible. Human Resources recognizes that there are some needing to wait until evaluation is concluded.
**Changes being proposed to SDE on evaluation- more information to come.
We are working on projections for next year and will begin preparing initial information for the work session in April. Principals should try to come to board work sessions and board meetings as critical information will be discussed.
Teacher supply money: We will be issuing credit cards next year instead of checks. We will not be able to reimburse teachers for expenditures over the summer. They will have to use the credit card. Please begin informing teachers now!
Web payments for parents to pay fees are being piloted at Northwestern. Other schools will have the opportunity to try web payments in the near future.
Travel reimbursement- we are beginning direct deposit. This is being implemented gradually. Instead of receiving a check, you will receive an e-mail notification of the deposit.
