ITLS Newsletter

February 16, 2017

A Note from Julie

The weather outside feels like spring and spring training is in the news, which also means that PARCC assessments are approaching. The latest Learning Services newsletter contains a reminder about the assessment resources that our department has gathered. We've tried to include resources that will be useful across grade levels and skill levels. If you know of something that might benefit others, please email us so that we can update the web page. Also, please share these resources with your peers.

Although we are using the ITLS newsletter to distribute many different ideas, we have not taken those through any type of formal approval process. We have not contacted IT to determine whether the tool(s) and/or resource(s) meet their standards nor have we obtained input from district content leaders; your resources and suggestions are not "officially" part of any Adams 12 curriculum, just ideas and suggestions for your consideration.
