Review of Student Folders-As a teacher, you have a special interest in knowing what is in your student’s permanent school record. There is a lot of information that these records offer you. Please come by the office and collect all your students’ folders. These folders can NOT leave the office area so find a place either in the conference room or any other available area and get an overview. Please sign the sign in sheet when you finish looking through your folders. It will be in the front office.


· Red folder of previous assessments

· Make sure all ELL’s have everything filled out on the LPAC forms ex. Date of entry, HLS, green parent form

· Food allergies

· Court documents-custody issues

Remember all this information is for YOUR eyes ONLY-it is STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL!

Sub. Folders-Organizing Information for your substitute. (SUB TUB or SUB FOLDER)

As with any other aspect of teaching you need to have a good game plan for helping your replacement get through the day-providing them with everything from a class roster and filler activities to where to find all the important materials and the daily class schedule and a generic lesson plan. A sub tub or sub folder is a great way to collect all the information in one place. I have some examples or you can find some examples on Pintrest (BLOGS) or Teachers Pay Teachers! This is going to be mandatory and will be enforced by Mr. James. He will be looking for these during walk thru’s. You have until Friday September 26, 2014 to complete your sub. folder.
