Grade Fixes for the Year!
As a reminder, our “Grade Fixes” that we agreed to pilot for this school year are:
▫ Fix 1: Don’t include student behaviors in grades; include only achievement
▫ Fix 5: Don’t consider attendance in grade determination; report absences separately
▫ Fix 6: Don’t include group scores in grades; use only individual achievement evidence
"Grading" SI Action Team Requests:
- As a staff, we are going to focus on one fix per month
- For this month, please read Fix #6: Don’t include group scores in grades; use only individual achievement evidence. Please read pp. 52-56 and provide your feedback to either Gabe or Callie. It is actually very easy reading and we do value your comments as we used them to lead our discussion.
We will compile and share this feedback at our January team meeting and with the rest of the staff.
Observation / Evaluation Process Update
Round 3 of Observations are FINISHED!!!! Yeah!!!
- The next step in this process is to schedule a Summative Evaluation Meeting sometime over the next few weeks. I need to have all SE Meetings completed by Wednesday, May 20.
- I will email the Summative Evaluation Report to each staff member prior to our meeting for your review.
- Each staff member should come to the Summative Evaluation Meeting prepared with your student growth data/evidence.
