T-TESS Goal-Setting Conferences

Jordan and I are looking forward to meeting with you and hearing about your 19-20 goals!

Please be sure that your goals are submitted PRIOR to your conference. Otherwise, we will be unable to see them. *Early Childhood - We will schedule separate conferences with each of you.

Here are the goal "tips" shared a few weeks ago:

Tips for educator goal-setting:

  • Each goal (both your individual and team goal) should be directly aligned to the T-TESS Rubric. *Linked below.
  • Each goal should be instructional in nature.
  • Don't reinvent the wheel! If there is already an area where you want to grow this year, make it your goal!
  • Each goal requires a plan in STRIVE. Think about what specific steps you'll take to grow towards your goal.

MAP Update

  • We are getting through our BOY MAP window, and we want to THANK YOU for being so flexible!

  • If you have kiddos who need to make up the test, use the button below. All you need to fill out are the GREEN highlighted sections!
  • Also below is the most updated MAP schedule. Use it to see when classes are testing and the small group schedule!
  • One LAST thing... Before starting a session, please make sure your kiddos have been assigned the GROWTH test, not the Screener! If your learners have been assigned the screener, text Andi or Jordan!
