Thanksgiving Reminders

In preparation for the closing of schools during the Thanksgiving Holidays, please follow the safety and security procedures outlined below:

  • Lock all windows and doors are locked and close blinds
  • Remove valuables from classroom
  • Place all laptops and other computers in the vault or other locked and secure locations within the building
  • Make sure your department chair has your contact information, in case the school phone tree needs to be initiated during the holidays

Building hours on Monday and Tuesday will be from 8am-2pm.

EOC Resources

The Winter EOC administration is on the other side of the Holiday! Our 2015 CCRPI information should be coming soon, and I hope to share it during our December Faculty Meeting.

I came across some new resources on the GADOE GA Milestone page, including:

Spring Schedules

Students received their 2nd semester schedules Friday afternoon. The schedule change request process has gone online. Students have until Friday, November 20 to complete the schedule change request form. Students are encouraged to email their counselor with any questions.

My Conference Time

Please make sure to look at your 11/19 schedule of conferences on My Conference Time - it is quite possible someone has already scheduled a meeting with you.

Parents can now schedule a conference online via MyConferenceTime. Here are the instructions for viewing your conference schedule. Note: I have added directions regarding manually adding and canceling conferences, so that you can block out times of parents you have scheduled via email or phone to avoid double-booking.

Roster Verification & SchoolNet tasks - Due this week!

  • SchoolNet that houses your professional learning will be transferred to a new program later this year. You have 1-2 activities from this year and maybe more activities that you need to complete the forms to get credit for these. Also see the strong suggestion: Have ALL employees take a PD Transcript out of SchoolNet by 11/30/15 which will be a PDF if they print and I recommend that they save a copy. Those certificated personnel might need to have that available as verification of Professional Learning for recertification after 2017. Rules change starting that June.

  • TKES Roster Verification: It is time for our first Roster Verification. The window opened yesterday and will close November 27, 2015. Teachers are to verify the roster that was submitted for the October 6th FTE count in Infinite Campus. Teachers will verify their rosters and send any discrepancies to Dr. Jackson. Dr. Jackson will then make the necessary changes in Infinite Campus. The teacher is expected to sign off on the Roster Verification in the TLE Electronic Platform. There will be no visible rosters in the Electronic Platform, only in Infinite Campus. Here are the Instructions to help with signing off on the Roster Verification process.
