Certified Staff: Staff Development Make Up Days
When we think of a traditional staff development day...we think about 3-4 hours of staff development & then the rest of the day is left to work on your own in your classroom. We will keep with that expectation in making up these missed hours/days.
General Ed/Classroom Teachers along with IRR, ESOL, & Gifted Teachers- will work together as a grade level to begin "working on the work" for next school year. Begin developing instructional calendars, lesson plan development, differentiated instruction, common assessments, and embedding technology into everyday instruction. I recommend that you meet together as a group to discuss how you will organize this work. I have no problem with you using the "divide & conquer" method, which would provide a flexible schedule for all members of the grade level.
IRR, ESOL, & Gifted Teachers are vital to this process as we move into planning for next year. As I shared during Thursday's staff meeting, a focus for mathematics district wide next year is differentiated instruction. Your knowledge will be a great support to the general education setting.
Special Area Teachers, SLPs, Media, LSTC, SC Special Ed. Teachers- will work independently to plan for their programs.
You may use before school hours, after school hours, Saturdays, and days after school is officially complete. You must have your hours made up prior to June 6.
