Ms. Clark's Celebration

Since I will not be with you this week, I want to share that my celebration is that I get to work with an amazing group of teachers who work diligently for our students! I appreciate everything you do every day for your students. I hope you all have a happy and restful break!


1. Celebrations

2. Data Work Day: Please complete any/all of the following tasks:

  • Utilize grade adjuster for semester exam grades - note the bell curve and the adjusted higher grades, decide how you want to address this.
  • Enter test grades and semester exam grades onto your data spreadsheet.
  • Make a note of students not showing progress from unit to unit and CBA to CBA. Also note your students in the gray, yellow, and red INOVA groups. Begin identifying who will be in your mandatory tutoring group beginning next semester.


Time: Group will meet 5 minutes after dismissal and work together for 45 minutes

Atmosphere: Relaxed but focused and productive. Student centered.

Productivity: Every PLC or Planning meeting will end in the creation of a product OR a plan for implementation

4 Essential Collaborative Planning Questions

1. What is it we want our students to learn?

2. How will we know if each student has learned it?

3. How will we respond when some students do not learn it?

4. How can we extend and enrich the learning for students who have demonstrated proficiency
