New River Early Release Staff Development
Thank you parents for supporting our early release Fridays. Today New River teachers worked with district coaches on creating rubrics for the standards they will be teaching in Quarter 2.
These rubrics helps teachers communicate the expectations for learning and are used for grading using our new grading scale.
Special education teachers and special area teachers met with other teachers in the district that teach in their same position to collaborate.
This time is valuable in the professional growth of teachers and we value this gift of time. Thank you!
