Tiger Beat

Acton Weekly Update: 5/18/18

FTCSC Hedgehog Focus

1. We accept LEARNING as the fundamental purpose of our district and therefore are willing to examine all practices in light of their impact on learning.

2. We are committed to working together to achieve our collective purpose. We cultivate a COLLABORATIVE CULTURE through development of high-performing teams.

3. We assess our effectiveness on the basis of RESULTS rather than intentions. Individuals, teams, and schools seek relevant data and information and use that information to promote continuous improvement.

From Database:

The Q4 grading window is now open.

Teachers, please clear cookies/cache and restart your computer before posting grade books. Infinite Campus Posting instructions are attached, please review these before posting.

KG teachers, after posting your Q4 grades, please remember that you will also need to post Q4 end-of-year Math and Reading scores (P/NP)….instructions are attached.

If you have any questions, please send an email to database@ftcsc.k12.in.us.

Please have all grades finalized and posted by 4:00 on Tuesday, May 22nd. We will print report cards for you Wednesday morning. This should give us enough time to catch and correct any issues. We will also print transcripts at this time and give them to all of you for stuffing envelopes and filing. I'll go review that process with classroom teachers next week.

What is EdCamp? A day where attendees drive the PD and tell us what you want for the day! That way we ensure you got what you needed for PD if you attend. Oh and we have several PRIZES to give away as well!!
