WSTLC and SSTLC serve as models for Boys Town programming. Nice work Beth and Julie! There is a palpable culture of Boys Town. The walls 'talk', the hallways 'buzz', and the staff are great role models!
Myers has an excellent professional development program for new teachers. What a great support system, Shawn! Monthly meetings, connecting new teachers with resources and each other, and a focus on high quality instruction. What a great way to move teachers forward!
SLO Testing and Procedures
What a great start to SLO testing week for CTE! Rick and Mike have worked hard to set up systems for ensuring smooth procedures, clarity of process, and seamless routines. Focused leadership leads to targeted outcomes. The small things make a big difference!
Lesson Plans & SABEA
1. The lesson plan form that was disseminated is recommended, but not mandatory.
2. Teachers may continue to submit lesson plans in any format that they choose; plans must be completed daily, for each course taught.
3. Plans should include elements of the EI framework and SDI as applicable.
4. We are aware that many teachers are at an acquisition phase of learning the framework - we do not expect perfection. Rather, we expect for teachers to be thoughtful about their instruction and how they can begin to incorporate the elements of Explicit Instruction, as they become more knowledgeable about it.
