September 30th Principal's PGP Due to Me

College App Week. Mid-Del’s College App Week is October 3 – 7, 2016.
Your Counselors have resources for this from Meagan.

Reminder: A copy of ALL SUSPENSIONS WILL NEED TO BE SENT TO OUR OFFICE 9 (S. Toombs). This can be through school mail or through e-mail.

The definition of NFAY for the 16-17 school year has not changed from last year. The 20th day of instruction according to Mid-Del’s calendar was Friday, September 16th. This means that every student that is enrolled after September 16th. will be designated as NFAY and will not count towards our accountability for this year. Keep a record of students that should have a status of NFAY. Remember that the state tracks and marks these students for us. You will need your record to compare to their data in order to ensure that all NFAY students are removed from your accountability. Call Sean if you have any questions.

PGP Due to Me By Sept. 30

A Final Word on the Power of Positive Instructional Leadership

Nothing in the principal's role is more important for ensuring successful student learning than effective instructional leadership. School principals who focus on a vision for their schools nurture the leadership capabilities of their teachers. Additionally, if their schools are moving in the right direction, they model effective leading and learning. Combining these efforts with using data appropriately, as well as monitoring what takes place at the classroom level, will increase the likelihood that schools will achieve their goals for student learning.
