Recognize an SPS Employee!

Springfield Public Schools has an Employee Recognition Form that can be used by any staff member to recognize any other staff member. It's quick and easy, and means so much to those that receive them. Want to recognize a colleague? Click HERE!

Classroom Observations/Fidelity Checks

I will have the chance to complete a formal observation for every teacher (that calls Delaware their home school) next week. Thank you all for signing up for a time so quickly! K-5 teachers, I will send you a reminder email regarding ELA fidelity checks, which is what will take place during this observation. My goal is to get another observation time in just a couple of weeks, and we'll focus on math then.
