Information from Johnny

Still No Budget News. We have just about spent the monies that central office has given us to start the year, so until I get a budget I will not be approving any more spending.


Be a part of the IMA process, as we will have these textbooks for a very long time!


Please follow CTE at NEISD on twitter: @NEISDCTE Also, when you tweet, please post to their account so it will show up on their twitter. Let students and families know as well.

ELL Paperwork Due in 2 weeks!.....September 30

Go to CTE webpage on intranet to ELL link. All forms are there.

I have asked our ELL coordinator to get you your list of students; however, if you go to mainframe you can see it there under STSB, F6, A, B and print. Note that the last two categories are reversed on the printed form that you fill out. Remember that you need to keep a copy and give me 2 copies. Just FYI those 2 copies go to central office and to our ELL coordinator here at WC.

Short 9 Weeks

This is a short 9 weeks (only 8). Next PROG is uploaded on October 3, but then the next week is a 4 day week and the 9 week ends on Friday. So, students will receive a progress report on October 7 and then grades close one week later for the 9 weeks. Make sure your students are aware of this.

Secondary Instructional Monthly (Technology Tips)

We have a new great IT, Wes Ryan. He will be a great asset to WC. Check out the monthly update on the IT blog for hints and helps with using technology in our classrooms. See box below.
