Updates, Reminders, and Tips

Trying Something New

I'm going to try something new this year....a monthly newsletter to all the trained CIM teachers. I'm going to try to shoot for once a month with any updates, reminders, meet the CIM teachers, etc. I'd love to get ideas back from you on what you want to see and read. Any feedback would be appreciated.



Every student you will be doing an intervention with needs to have the Slosson assessment given to them.


Get a release form on all your CIM intervention students (NWAEA and UNI). Go to CIM site then go under Resources tab and keep scrolling till you get to Release Forms.


Keep this site in your favorites- CIM at NWAEA


The 2016-2017 sheet is not up and ready to go yet. There will be a few changes that I'll go over in Oct. at our next OPD.


Keep individual attendance sheets (with with small boxes) on each student. This will help you figure out at the end average lessons per week. Also if you switch kids around, their attendance sheets go with them.
