Panther Notes

Week of Jan. 19-23

BYOD Begins...

Thank you for your leadership with BYOD. We anticipate that students will bring their contracts in right away. Be sure to review expectations again with students. This is critical for setting the tone and expectation that BYOD is for instructional use.

If you have questions, comments or ideas please submit them via the google form. There will be lessons learned along the way and we need your feedback. We want your input to provide ongoing support and closely monitor our progress as a school.

Testing Updates

CTE pretest exams will be given on Friday, January 23 and Monday, January 26. All CTE testing will take place during CTE classes.

Case 21 testing will take place on Tuesday, January 27 and Wednesday, January 28. We will use the two hour delay schedule and test first thing in the morning. On Tuesday, 6th and 8th grade math classes and 7th grade LA classes will test. On Wednesday, 7th grade math classes and 6th and 8th LA classes will test.

Classes will stay together and will be assigned testing rooms. For example, Jones 4th period might test with Bolding. Mod groups will be pulled as well. Watch for more details closer to the testing dates.

On Thursday, February 12, approximately 90 8th grade preselected students will take the NAEP exam. These students will miss first block and smart block on that date. If you would like more information on the national test, let Debbie Farrell know.
