Test Site Coordinators (TSC) Needed

Insight is in need of additional Test Site Coordinators. Our team is required to provide one TSC volunteer who will work with a collective team to ensure our testing sites are organized and ready for our students to test. Responsibilities will be shared within the team of TSCs. Responsibilities will include tasks such as making phone calls, locating test sites, etc. If you would be willing to volunteer as a TSC please notify your HLT immediately. We would greatly appreciate your willingness.

School Site Council

Our amazing Director is looking for volunteers to serve on our school site councils.

The commitment to School Site Council is minimal – 2 hours for the entire school year! 1 time in November and then 1 time in March/April time frame.

If you are willing to volunteer, please fill out the nomination form found below.

Attendance Save Day

Don’t forget to save your attendance today! Please see your CL’s attendance directions for assistance, and remember not to click on anything but “Save”!! If you have any questions about attendance please let Melissa know. She is happy to do a 1/1 with you if you like help!

Content Pass Rates

You received the overall pass rates for your courses this week. Please make sure to

respond by COB Today with your plan of action for improving upon your current rates.

Here are some things to think about:

- Calling/mass emailing your students by grade band (start this week with 0-20%, for example)

- Kmailing/emailing missing assignment reminders (can be done en masse if you view your gradebook by assignment, then sort by grade)

- Begin offering incentives (attendance at tutoring = points toward the assignment, for example)

2. Kmail the ILP to the student using the SAME ILP TEMPLATE (attach PDF), and select “File this K-mail as a Note” (ONLY necessary Quarter 1 [or student’s first quarter with us] and Quarter 4)

a. Enter a “Thanks for speaking with me” message in the body of the kmail
