Kindles for NWEA Growth!!!
Curriculum Locks for NWEA and MSTEP
For students that are No-Shows for MSTEP testing - Their curriculum will be locked and a mandatory meeting with me must be held before it is unlocked. This is for students that we were not able to get a hold of and did not attend testing, not opt-out students.
You will be provided a PPT template to include in these conferences that includes: a review of student data and an action plan entering next year.
Content Coaches and I, will be available to attend conferences for difficult parents. Remember, the school has a responsibility to put the needs of the student first. We will do what is in the best interest of the students. A sign-up document will be shared to sign-up for admin/content coach support for these conferences.
Also, Special Education students can be retained only if a case conference is held and the committee agrees with retention. Please share concerns with case managers, so these can be scheduled and the discussion held.
