Tutorial Scanning Sheets

Just a quick follow-up to our staff meeting & email.

  • Always make sure you are in the first column when scanning/typing in IDs.
  • I will be going around building by building over the next couple of weeks during tutorial to check in

Focus on the Impact of Students!

As we implement new strategies and structures, it is important to not get hung up on perfection of the thing being implemented, but instead, place greater importance on the impact we are having on students.
