Professional Growth Plans
We've been fortunate enough to have a little bit of flexibility because we are a charter to not have to submit these until now. However, every teacher (including special education) and counselors are asked to submit two professional growth goals by December 18, 2015. These are simple goals that are submitted through compass. Please don't stress over this. They simply need to be complete. Please see the link for more information about PGPs. If you have any questions please schedule a time to visit with Brandon or Brionne. http://www.louisianabelieves.com/docs/key-compass-resources/compass-professional-growth-plan-guidance.pdf?sfvrsn=5
Additionally, there are plans to restructure the way intervention works. We will be ready to roll out a more intentional intervention plan beginning in January. In the meantime, it is absolutely imperative that all teachers are providing tier 2 instructions for students that require it.
- Decorations should be student created. Try building a mini thematic unit around the holidays. Give students the opportunity to create something from what they've learned. As long as your unit is tied to academic standards, they can create almost anything!
- Respect diverse cultures. The beauty of being in America is embracing the "melting pot". The holidays are a great opportunity to learn about how different cultures celebrate the holidays.
- In the hallways, make sure that your student work is accompanied by a gallery sheet. See Mr. Roscoe with questions around the gallery sheets.
So as we head into this (warm) holiday season, let's create a fun atmosphere for our learners that allows them to celebrate and learn simultaneously. Let's the decorations begin!
