Kinder: Your next job-embedded math PD has changed to Nov. 10 due to schedule conflicts.


Modified Math CBAs: They are located under the Special Education folder on Forethought. Modified scantrons are separate from regular CBAs.


Kinder and 1st Grade: Academic Report Cards have been revised and no longer allow teachers to shade out nine weeks columns for specific standards. If the student has not learned the concept yet, mark "Developing."


Strategy Lessons (1st-5th):

The district has provided strategy lessons to be used at teacher table once your grade level has completed the 5-week Problem Solving roll-out plan. Don't worry if you are still doing the roll-out plan and your dates do not match the ones recommended in Eduphoria. I just want you to be aware of these lessons. The picture below shows you where to find this information in Eduphoria. I look forward to supporting you with this!
