Please see attachment: report card checklist for further procedures and expectations.
All students are welcome to attend XLT. You will be receiving enrollment forms to send home in report card envelopes after Spring Break. Attached is a generic note to send home to parents stating that you are recommending that their child attend XLT. I highly recommend a call home if you think this will come as a surprise to parents. All students that attend XLT will be in a reading and a math class. Students recommended will be grouped together and (hopefully) have a smaller class size. Teachers will teach using the workshop model. Those students not recommended will be in enrichment reading and math classes. Unfortunately we can’t place a student in enrichment math and not reading-it has to be the same for both reading and math. We need a list of all students (please send to Janet by Friday, March 13th) that you are recommending XLT for reading and math. This is an important step as Janet will be responsible for checking a box that will indicate on the report card the recommendation for XLT.

Classroom Walk Through Focus
What are students working on during their independent practice time? Is it relevant to learning targets and student goals? Are students reading for the majority of time or practicing assignments on teacher selected texts? Do students have choice in their reading and writing? Are you setting goals mutually with students?
Building Hours over Spring Break
