Take Note

  • NO Tech Mex Tuesday next week. I'm sitting in a case conference that afternoon
  • The Nov 14th meeting could, if necessary, be a final Special Friends Day planning OR curriculum mapping (its original intent).
  • Mid-Quarter grade check is Monday for all the basketball players. Please have grades up to date in your gradebook so I can do that on Monday morning.

ILEARN/IREAD Required Training Coming

School personnel planning to administer the ILEARN and/or IREAD-3 assessments this year must first complete the required Test Administrator Certification Course. This online training is approximately 30 minutes in length and will be posted to the Indiana Assessment Portal beginning October 1. Educators may complete the training any time up until the scheduled assessment window for which they will serve as a Test Administrator (TA).


Please let me know when you're done with it so I know all have done it.
