CAHS Staff Meeting
Teacher IDP's (individual Development Plans) and Professional Growth Goals
Final document will be uploaded to Teachscape by September 30th. We plan to review how to setup your account and upload the document in Teachscape at the staff meeting.
Remember that IDP's are for new teachers and Professional Growth Goals are for tenured teachers with effective or highly effective ratings. If you have questions, please let us know.
Student Handbook Review
***Administrators visited English classes last week and reviewed serious infractions such as drugs, weapons, fighting, etc.***
I realize that email was down early on, and that we covered the handbook during classes, however, my experience was that some students had not yet seen the handbook review in their 2nd/3rd/4th hour classes as requested (see below). This is a professional obligation and correlates to domain 4 of the Teacher Evaluation instrument, so if you haven't completed the review, it should be taken care of right away. THANKS to all who already completed the assigned review!
Handbook Highlights: Attached please find the Handbook Highlights for 2014-2015 PowerPoint (also posted on Blackboard under Carman-Ainsworth High School --> Publications --> Student Handbook Highlights 2014-2015).
From the email on 9.1.14:
