Staff/Building Concerns: 5th grade hallway. Lots of students complaining that their lockers are opened, locks turned.
IPAD Situation/Get Lists to Peg W. or Karen (by advisory): We need a list, by advisory – students without an IPAD. There are a few issues with some of the students IPADs – logging into Edmodo. New students will be getting their IPADs soon.
Standardized Testing – it will be online or paper/pencil.
IXL/Delta Math – Are we all set up? Yes, Scott H. is going to be training some of the staff.
Online Text for Math – text support has been called, need EXCEL document with name and student number. It should be done today.
Family Literacy Nights – Literacy nights in two weeks.
ELA Staff out tomorrow – Staff will be gone tomorrow.
Parent/Teacher conferences online scheduling – This will be open on Friday this week with staff access and for parents next week.
Genius Day Supplies – big ticket items, please get list to Mike sooner than later.
The bottom 30% - What could we do with our teachers, schedules, parents. We have to get aggressive with our bottom 30%. We have to do new things to reach them. Get in groups of four to discuss – suggestions of what we need to do on a daily basis.
Ideas : More 1-on-1, band, take bottom 30% out more, how we use parapros – with small groups, have teachers work with the small groups, high school kids coming over, Americorps, PTO, block scheduling, academic support (homework completion), why don’t you combine 8th grade with the high school band, eating breakfast – making sure that they eat.
