Anthony and Jeremy will join us for Team Time to discuss data points. Please take a bit of time prior to the meeting to at least think about the information and prepare data points. Each educator will be asked to individually submit the form.

The form can be printed (right) or downloaded from Anthony's e-mail on 5/12.

UPDATE: Action Step

Write an action step to address how we are finishing out the year in support of our struggling learners.

This will be e-mailed to Anthony either individually or as a team by Friday.

ESL Certification Information

From Mr. Jasso:

I email to provide you with information related to our ESL certification discussion in the English Department meeting this morning. A reminder that CISD is moving towards improved service for ESL students through English instruction. This means that new hires, as well as current staff, will be required to obtain ESL certification by the Spring of 2017. CISD will pay for one exam fee for each teacher impacted (you can elect to take the digital test). The cost of updating your certification status with SBEC would be paid by the teacher, however. Below are resources to help you learn more about this certification and resources to help you prepare for this exam.

Register from the Exam

We will pursue face to face training for interested teachers and provide that time and date when available. Thank you again for your positive attitude (and the Diet Cokes)!
