School Effectiveness Visit

Our school will participate in a School Effectiveness Visit this school year. The SEF Team members will consist of Jan LeClair, Liz Suriyuth, Anna Pacheco, Dave Russell, Michèle Babcock and Stephanie Sartor. The visit will happen over three different dates.

On Monday, November 5th, the team will meet with staff for approximately an hour before school, starting at 8:00am. All staff (teachers, support staff, and custodial) are invited to attend. They will then meet with a Student Focus Group at 9:30 for approximately an hour.

On Tuesday, November 6th, the team will come for the full day and engage in classroom visits. They will arrive for 9:00am and be divided into two teams. Each class/program will be visited twice. Teachers are reminded of the importance of having portfolios/student work for team members to look through as they come into classrooms. This may also be electronic.

The feedback session will occur on Tuesday, November 13th at 8:00am. This will be in lieu of our Staff Meeting scheduled for November 15th. During the feedback session, Michèle Babcock & Stephanie Sartor will share the team’s observations and provide feedback. The school will then receive a written summary.
