Review the new expectations for Student Discipline and Hall Monitoring sent out this weekend and work to hold yourself and your students accountable to these expectations this semester.

As you prepare for Parent Conferences this Tuesday please review the following resources to help you ensure a meaningful and productive dialogue with each parent.

To ensure that all parents have an opportunity to speak with you please pre-plan the agenda items you will discuss and have data and resources available to support the discussion. Plan to discuss information with each parent for approximatly 10 minuets. The main focus of dialogue at this time should be on student achievement as it relates to upcoming STAAR assessments and the status of active RtI and tutoring plans for students.

A Quick Note About Absences

Whenever you are absence you must complete the three following steps:

  1. Put your absence in AESOP.
  2. Email Mrs. Lisa Smith at lissmith@dallasisd.org
