Dread Making Sub Plans No More!

How about trying #GridPlans? Don't type it all out--Record video in an organized platform. No fluff days. Nothing lost in translation. Talk directly to your students. This could even be great for students who are absent for extracurricular activities!

Learn how below!

Nuts & Bolts

  • GRADES - Grades need to be posted by 8:00 am on January 7th.

  • LESSON PLANS - Due Friday, January 11th for the following week.

  • WEBSITES - Update with the revised syllabus that was sent to you. This is very important, as it can help you if parent issues arise. TRUST ME...

  • EMERGENCY BINDERS - Need to updated with new rosters, etc. by Monday, Jan. 14th.

  • CLASSROOM NORMS - The start of a new semester is a great time to review procedures and expectations. Remember, our students need to be told EXACTLY what is expected of them. Do not assume they will know.
