Salary and Teaching Schedule

Each year you are required to fill out a salary and teaching schedule to give us information about your program.

Please use the guidebook to help you complete the S&T Schedule by September 30, 2015.
As a new teacher, you will need to know your PID number in order to log in. Please send me an email or call to request your PID number.

After you have your PID number you may set your password and submit your data.

Remember to save your password for the CESI report--see below.

CESI Report, due October 30, 2015

Each year, you will fill out a report to tell us about your students. This report is very comprehensive and takes a little longer than the Salary & Teaching report. Please attend training on September 23 (see above) to learn how to file your CESI report. You will use the same password that you set for the Salary & Teaching report.

PLTW Counselor/Administrator Conference

October 29 at Central Technology Center, Drumright, OK

As a Gateway school, you are required to have your counselor or principal attend the PLTW Counselor/Administrator Conference each year. It is important for your counselor to understand the Gateway program and course options so that they can enroll your students. Please send your counselor's name and email address to Jessica Ventris so that we can send them registration information. You may use your grant money to purchase registration for your counselor. It is not necessary for you to attend unless your counselor or administrator requests for you to be there.
