Secondary Spotlight

May 8, 2016

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Just a few quick reminders:

  • Complete the Report Card Survey- deadline was May 6, but the link should still be active. As of last Thursday there were only 4 responses.

You may access the survey by clicking here:

  • Last day for schedule changes May 15.
  • Update your self- monitoring plan
  • If you have not completed all requisitions, please make sure to complete this ASAP. Search soft folders with candidates are being sent to schools daily. Our goal is to complete hiring before the second week of June.
  • Dr. McNeal sent an email asking for testing calendar feedback. Please make sure to provide input!

Keeping the Secondary Spotlight- short and sweet! I know you are all very busy! Have a great week of learning!!!! 3 more Mondays!!!!
