HS PD Opportunity / Department Chair Info
Department chair meetings run from 3:30pm - 5:30pm, usually the 3rd Wednesday of each month (see dates at right).
Our next meeting will be held on January 23 at 3700 S. High St. Room 129.
This meeting will be open to all high school math teachers (not just department chairs). We will be presenting on Visible Learning and High Impact Strategies for HS math teachers. Participants will receive a copy of the book "Teaching Mathematics in the Visible Learning Classroom" and 0.2 CEUs.
To ensure we have enough space and copies of the book, please register at the link below.
Note: Department chairs are not required to sign up.
MS Math Curriculum Liaisons
For the last two years we have offered a MS Content Expert program. This year we have decided to return to a previous format where we had one teacher from each building serve as a contact between our office and his/her school. This is for ELA and Math only.
We have reached out to 6-8 principals to get our new Middle School Math Curriculum Liaison program started. If you are interested, please talk to your principal and the other math teachers in your school. For more information, see the flyer below.
Already sign up? Interested in hosting our first meeting?
As our new office is not yet ready, we may hold our first meeting at one of our middle schools. If interested in hosting, please let Steve know. We expect around 30 teachers.
Equatio is free for all teachers but costs for students to use. We are looking for 5-10 middle and high schools (or individual teachers) interested in piloting Equatio with their classes. Participant will have the opportunity to attend a webinar being planned for records day (January 16th).
Please email Steve if you are interested.
