Happy Tuesday Secondary!!

A big THANK YOU to Mr. Bailey, SGA and club sponsors for helping to make last week's Make the World a Little Better week successful! Many of you are pulled in so many directions, but you consistently make the effort to provide positive activities for our students! Next week we look forward to Literacy Week! Stay tuned for additional information from Ms. Larson and Ms. Broome on scheduled activities.

RtI and ESE/504 Reminder

As each of you work with students through the RtI process, or for those student with IEPs or 504s, please remember to enter the accommodations you have offered to students with assignments. Also please enter if students do not utilize the offered accommodations. You may make note of the accommodations under the "Notes" or "Comment" field in the FOCUS gradebook. Please reach out to Janeen Larson, Monica Broome or LaTonya Johnson if you need additional guidance with entering accommodations into FOCUS.

Accreditation Correction

Our accreditation visit is scheduled for February 9-10, 2016. The committee will report their findings to staff on Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2016 at 3:00 p.m. in the Gold Upstairs Lecture Hall (Rm 4-254).

Master Schedule Development 2016-2017

Thank you for attending last week's meeting on creating a scheduling and advisory and submitting your ideas. As we move into February, counselors will begin meeting with grade level classes to provide information on registration for the 2016-2017 year. Our goal is to provide teachers with needed information on their course assignments for next year as well as provide students and families schedules during early August. I will be reaching out to meet with department heads this week to continue discussions on department needs and preferences. Please let me or your department head know if there are particular requests you may have for next year's master schedule. While we may not be able to accommodate every request, we will do our best to meet as many as possible. Stay tuned for emerging information!!


More FSUS teachers have completed their Students with Disabilities Module! Congratulations Shannon Crowe, Lauren Waters, Ruthie Platt, Janet Cotterall and Arielle Murray! Thank you all for your continued hard work to serve our students. Way to go!!!!
