Academic Facilitator Individualized Campus Support Meeting with each Principal
Our Sunset Academic Facilitators will have a new home. I have asked Mr. Rodriguez to find office space for Mike and Yesenia. They will now have offices at Lida Hooe Elementary. Since Lida Hooe is a targeted campus without an assistant principal or Reading CIC, we thought having their offices accessible to this campus would most beneficial. Additionally, they will be in close proximity to all feeder campuses. The district has made changes to the office structure and thus, we are excited to have them in our feeder area!
I have requested each AF to meet with each campus principal to determine the most appropriate supports. Additionally, they will review campus data to create a feeder "heat map" and provide individualized campus/grade level assistance based upon your meeting this week. Per my email, you will need to address targeted supports based upon mid-year data which includes ACP achievement- at or before your Mid-Year. You should be able to speak to each content area, grade level and growth/losses compared to last fall/feeder/district. All targeted plans should be created with all stakeholders (i.e. teachers/leaders/grade level).
This Week- Lists of Celebrations with Rubric for Visit
Please prepare a list of 3-5 celebrations we have worked together on this semester (E.D. and principal). How did we determine these needs and what did we do to reach the celebration? Please indicate determine which part of the principals rubric is aligned with each celebration.
Make a list of 3 challenges that you believe will be high leverage and will track before your Mid-Year in January. Explain why you chose these three and actions that will need to take place.
As I visit this week, we will review your celebrations together! See you this week!
