Sheltered Instruction Credit

Next year, you will be required to obtain 3 hours of sheltered instruction professional development. There will not be a district or campus training specifically for this. You can seek out trainings at Keller U that have Sheltered Instruction credit or you can sign up for an online course through Eduphoria to achieve these hours.

Resignation Deadline

All contracted employees under a Probationary, Continuing or Term Contract, as per Board Policy DFE (Legal), may resign from their respective employment contract without penalty by filing a written resignation not later than the 45th day before the first day of instruction for the 2016-2017 school year.

This year’s deadline is July 11, 2016. Resignations must be mailed and postmarked by July 11, 2016 or hand delivered by close of business on Monday, July 11, 2016 (4:30 p.m.).

Teachers have the right to resign prior to the resignation deadline date, but any resignation received after that date must be accepted by the principal.

Check your email!

I encourage you to check your school email at least once a week over the summer. I will be sending out staffing updates and important dates. Ann and I are on campus from June 6 - 24 and July 11 - Aug. 12. Please feel free to call if you have any questions!
