What does Above the Line mean to our Lions?

You will begin seeing slips of paper for students to fill out in your boxes that say Above the Line. We want students to take a little bit of time to write what they think Above the Line means to them in their own words. Mrs. Newland and I will be giving students some tidbits of what it means to carry yourself Above the Line during morning announcements, but first we want a sneak peak at what our students think it means. I continue to see all of you leading by example, taking responsibility, and guiding your students to be successful Lions. You astound me everyday as you interact with students, staff, each other, and parents! Way to lead Lions! The visual below is a reminder of ways we can continue to keep our workplace successful and Above the Line!

T-TESS Goal Setting Guidelines

  • Goal needs to be created based on data. The data you use is up to you but should be based on your students performance last year. Attached is the data that was given to each team at the beginning of the year. Feel free to use CBA, STAR Reading, Math, STAAR, etc..
  • Remember your goal must be based on Tier 1 Priorities and the Learning Platform.
  • Directions are in the training pages you got in T-TESS PD training the 1st week of school. If you need another copy let Amy know.
  • 1 Professional Goal needs to be entered in Appraise by September 30th.
  • We are here to help just ask!
