We will be participating as a school corporation in the Great Shakeout on 10/15 at 10:15 am. This is a statewide earthquake drill. I will be emailing out information from Lane Lindner for you to review and go over with your classes.

Title 1-RTI and file review updates

Data talks will begin the week of Oct 5. Please have your STAR data posted by this time. Remember benchmarks are due by Oct. 22.

Please be sure you are using the correct tab for this years data.

We will be looking at ALL new students to check initial data and identify students in need of interventions.

Returning Jane Ball students should be following normal RTI referral protocol . Please check the red folder provided by the RTI committee if you are unsure of the procedure. Any questions feel free to email me.

Special Education Services

Due to changes in the services of some of the students, Janet and Ellen has had to change some of their schedules. If you are unsure of your service time for identified Special Education students please email (and copy me) their special education teacher. If you have NOT received an updated IEP or are unsure of services please email the special education staff and copy me on ALL correspondence.

Thanks for your patience as we have had to make many changes in a short amount of time.
