Getting Ready For Your Mid Year Conference!!!

Your Mid-Year Conferences are fast approaching. Here are a few things to think about and bring with you.

1. Look at your self-assessment and bring it with you to the meeting. Would you change anything about your self-assessment now that you are half way through the year? If so, what?

2. In order to be successful, what do you need for the rest of the year?

3. Bring a copy of your grade level school improvement plan. Where are you in this plan?
