Notes from Dr. Valadez

Thank you for all your hard work this week. We had a great turnout at parent conference nights! It was great to see our parents be a part of our children's education.

In an effort to improve communication, the district is rolling out Podcast series. The podcasts provide audio streaming of monthly updates from Teaching and Learning, WAIP items as well as best practices in mathematics and literacy. You can access them through curriculum central or directly via the link below.

Audio Podcasts Now Available

We have a busy week ahead. I will be coming by elementary campuses to do follow up walks on RM implementation. Look forward to it.

Please ensure your instructional coaches have submitted their data on the spreadsheet provided by the academic facilitators. Not all campuses have input their data. Email the facilitators if you have any questions.

The Commissioner of Education has proposed a progressing scale for Phase in II. You can find the proposed passing standards below:
