Assessment

A team of four attended the state assessment training in Pocatello this week. There are just a few changes to testing this year. Good news: They have worked to shorten the ELA and Math assessments. We will be having a testing coordinator training on February 24 from 8:30 at the DSC. Testing Coordinators and Principals need to attend.

Special Education

AIMSweb Training -The SDE is bringing an eight district training into DSC onFebruary 22. Currently we have 3 spaces allocated. It has been opened up to Instructional Coaches but please let me know if there are others who would benefit from this training. There is a possibility more spaces will be available closer to the training.
