Design Day Brainstorming

I'd like to send out a big "Thank You" to Team Leads for your thinking/planning during this past week's meeting.

Below are some notes from our Design Day Brainstorming. Our discussion centered around how to ensure we are approaching our lesson design from the perspective of "creating experiences" over "planning lessons."

Be sure to check-in with your Team Leader for some things we discussed!

GEM Nominations

"The internal Employee Recognition Program (GEM: Great Educators Matter) seeks to recognize outstanding employees who serve the mission of the district in a manner that exceeds job/salary expectations...those who go "above and beyond the call of duty" on a quarterly basis. CISD employees are nominated by their peers and, two times per school year, as many as 30 are recognized before the Board of Trustees. Their names are also added to the "Wall of Honor" in the district's Vonita White Administration Building."

Nominations are due April 6th.

GEM Nominations

Click "Submit Form" in the bottom left corner. Then click "Staff and Student Services."
