Planning Sheets Needed for Upcoming Grant Implementation Meeting

During the GIT meeting on day one of the Summit, the TLI team introduced and discussed a planning sheet (on goldenrod colored paper) for district leaders to consider how they might support sites and campuses as they follow-up on the Summit. The goldenrod planning sheet provided columns for district leaders to plan their activities and determine the time frame for these activities, who would be involved, and the specific roles and responsibilities. I have attached this sheet for your reference.

CBLT's will need to have this sheet completed for the May 30th meeting. It should include information about which Leadership Action Step that you are working on. Your completed forms have to be submitted to TEA in our district's May Activity Report. I have attached an electronic version of this form on Edmodo. Please be sure to type your information onto this form. Bring it to the May 30th meeting.

Laurie Fay is a member of the K-5 Literacy Line at her campus. She is interested in attending sessions specific to grades Kinder - 2nd. She notices there are four strands she can choose from ( 9, 10, 11, & 12). She decides that Strand 9 is most appealing to her and will benefit her the most. The courses that she will attend in this strand, include:

  • Fluency: The Bridge Between Word Recognition & Comprehension
