Great Message from our FLOTUS!

Effective Learning Environments Observation Tool - The ELEOT

Great work last week on the ELEOT tool. I have attached yet another video for you to view and see how the ELEOT document can be used during classroom observations. This example is a snapshot of a high school math lesson. I have placed a copy of the ELEOT document in your mailboxes so that you can observe the lesson using the tool.

Professional Development. The Elms Experience!

Watching teachers learn is a thrilling experience for me as an administrator. The collaboration, conversation, and honest feedback that took place during our School Improvement Self-Assessment work was meaningful and time will spent.


At the training, our staff felt pretty strongly that Standard 3.8 should not have been rated a 4. Standard 3.8 reads that the school engages families in meaningful ways in their children's education and keeps them informed of their children's learning progress.


I have spoken to Paul Robinson and he will place Elms concern on how this standard was rated on January's District Improvement Meeting agenda.


Thanks again for all of your work and honest feedback last week!
