Weekly Brief

1.One topic I am discussing with the nurses involves students who do not have certain immunizations. Schools handle this differently in the state and we are reviewing our policies.

2. There is an interesting site called Tallo that would allow our students to showcase themselves and connect them with various opportunities after high school. We are reviewing this to determine if this could be beneficial for our students.

3. Mike Edge and I are discussing the value of the marking period data and whether or not there are there other things we could do to increase the use and functionality of the information. We will continue this year with the reports we've had in the past, but are open to change.

Up Ahead: Step UP

1. 12th annual vision coalition conference will be held at Clayton hall on the 12th. Hodgson's award winning culinary arts program is a key feature, along with our CNAP programs at HVT and HHS.
