Student Supervision

Supervising Students is part of your Professional Responsibility(Domain 4). Please make sure you supervise your students at all times. Students may not be placed in the hallway as a disciplinary measure. Please utilize the classrooms on your team as a time out. Each classroom should have a desk identified for students to come in and reflect.

5Essential Survey

Please complete the 5Essential Survey by Friday, February 29, 2016. Remember, if you do not understand any part of the survey please ask one of your colleagues or ask me. This is not the time to guess or to rate poorly because of Lack of Understanding.
