Teacher Observing Teachers Completion Form

Form are due November 24th and at this point only 7 Teachers have completed their observations and submitted their forms. Do what you need to do, and make it happen.

If you have not completed your hours, or you're uncertain how many you still need, stop by the office and we can go over it together. All hours are due December 4th.

Rocco's Corner

Thank you for establishing your classroom expectations and performing the Tier I and Tier II interventions for behaviors that require it. I have seen very well detailed documentation of these efforts made in the referrals I have processed. In my capacity as a Behavioral Specialist (and in every other way as well) I am very fortunate to be here working for you at OW. Thank you very much!
