FYI:

  • We will discuss SLOs at our next faculty meeting to make sure that everyone is on the same page. Planning ahead, so that you are aware, we will not be doing a school-wide goal. These will be more purposeful to your grade level and class.

  • QUESTION: Are we interested in adding another foster grandparent? There is one available- does anyone have a request?

  • Please do not hold the doors open with rocks or anything else while you are outside with your students. This could damage the doors themselves and it then poses a safety threat for the rest of the building.

  • FALL FOOD DRIVE: Collections will begin on Monday the 17th and can be accepted through October 28th.

OBSERVATIONS:

Observations have started for some teachers. Upon meeting with these teachers and looking at the mylearningplan process, many questions arose about the process. So, here is some information about what I am looking for.....


  • Pre-observations are to be completed on the mylearningplan template. Within this template, I am looking for the "note" portion to be completed, not the rubric, for most areas or one at the bottom. In completing these notes, I will have a sense of what I am gong to see and it gives me points of discussion for our pre-obs. conference.
  • Pre-obs. Conference- This serves as a time for you to tell me about your class and the lesson I am about to see. I may ask a few questions based on your pre-obs form. I will then be looking for you to share with me if there is anything you want me to look for or pay close attention to while I am in there. It is my opinion, that if I can't make your observation purposeful and a learning tool for you, it is pointless. I will not be asking you to re-do your plans- perhaps re-think about it. I want to see what you do each and every day, not a "show."
  • Observation- I will come in and follow the Danielson rubric. I tend to script a lot- classroom environment, quotes, suggestions/feedback etc. I will also be looking for your lesson plan. You can send this electronically ahead of time, if that is easier. I will then go back to work thru my notes and then complete the rubric in the system.
  • Following the observation, we will schedule a time to go over it and complete the process.



I hope this helps clarify the process for everyone. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
