Math Promise Standards

Based on my recent principal meeting we will need to be ready to talk about promise standards in math by April 30. The documents you have created will help with this conversation. In addition, the Napa standards will help inform this work.

There will be a release day in May and we will need grade level representation at a district grade level meeting. Please let me know who will represent your grade level.

Sign up for your grade rep.

EL Reclassification Criteria

Prep and Collab Time

The elimination of specials this year has had some unintended consequences. We will examine this in leadership and then with the entire staff as we plan for next year.

Last year we discussed and agreed that I would run shorter Monday staff meetings to give grade levels additional on your own time and the time back for Wednesdays (meeting earlier). This will no longer be the case.

We will have two 60 minute meetings per month on Mondays. In return we will do the following to honor your Wednesday 40 minute prep.

We are working on some options to get teaching staff off pick up and bus duty on Wed. We will have this resolved by Feb 6.

Collab time will begin at 1:55 on Wednesdays to honor your 40 minute prep.
