Custodial Work Orders

If you have any issues which require custodial / maintenance assistance, you must submit a Custodial Work Order. Work orders are then sent and tracked through our district SchoolDude system.

Assessment Resources

The following link contains a comprehensive, easy to use resource for all educators on the topic of assessment. In particular, take a look at the portion on co-creating criteria with students which is taken from the work of Anne Davies, a reknowned expert in this field. This may be helpful when you construct your SLO plans next year, as this is one method in which you can involve students in the process of constructing the assessment. If you are unfamiliar with her work, I would recommend checking out some of the other resources found within this document. In addition, I would suggest reading further on the powerful effect feedback has on student learning and the work of Ken O'Connor on grading.
