Early Release Content- October 8

Thank you parents for supporting our early release professional development Fridays. On October 8 New River teachers met with Gavilan Peak teachers to review student progress on a common assessment they all gave, talk about strategies and planning for future lessons. This collaboration with Gavilan Peak teachers is helping our two schools align from Kindergarten through sixth grade so when our students transition into GP for 7th grade they have had similar academic instruction from the beginning. Your support of these days are greatly appreciated.

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!
