Here is this month's slide deck for redelivery! October School Lead Call.pptx

Key take away items for redelivery:

  • Let's all think about how to focus on job embedded work to submit for XP. Our goal is to work "smarter" not "harder". Take time to promote this topic with your team. Also, encourage teammates to enter their XP.

  • The XP Committee will be sharing ideas for XP activities and mentoring ideas. (Coming soon!)

  • The Event/PD Committee is creating a checklist resource (to take or leave) to help with the Coaching Cycle. (Coming soon!)

  • The Flipgrid channel is up! Encourage your team to participate by adding a video and engaging with others. Password: Vanguard

  • School Leads Only - We encourage you to enter ideas into the Padlet wall! Let me know if you have ideas for creating resources to share out to help others with our initiative.

  • School Leads Only - Let us know if you - OR - your team would like to host any type of "meet-up" for your learning community. Connect with your Learning Community Lead! I hope we empower you to increase your voice and leadership while serving as a member of this community.

The video from this month's call can be found on our stream channel or by clicking here:
