Freedom Park Faculty and Staff Newsletter - 19 August 2018

Websites - Weekly Updates

Please make sure you are updating your websites weekly.

Lesson Plans are Mandatory

Lesson plans are mandatory. All lesson plans should be completed and uploaded to the school's One Drive folder FPSLessonPlans2018-19. Lesson plans are due every Monday at 8am unless otherwise noted. You should have received a link via email. We are still working on a template and will provide soon.

Missed Special Education Services

All teachers must keep a record for dates and times that students are not provided special education services. If a student is absent, this is not necessary. This is only necessary when the student did not receive services because the individual providing the services is either absent or was present (at school) but failed to provide the service for any reason. This information must be emailed to all three administrators and will be forwarded to the school's special education liaison.

2018-2019 School Clubs

We are sending out a second request for a list of school clubs. These have to be turned in to the district and placed on the school website. Even if you club has not started, we still need to know that it will be a club this year. Please email Dr. Singh

Upcoming Events


The SMART Goal deadline will be sent by the district. They are currently working toward moving TKES to SLDS as this is where it will be housed for the school year. It is important that we start working on the now, as the district may not give us a long turn around for the due date. Please review the SMART Goal attachment and watch the SMART Goal GNC video. These resources will help you to create appropriate goals.

Elementary School

You should write two goals. One goal should be based on one of the initiatives in the Elementary School Improvement Plan. There are three initiatives as you will see at the bottom of the Excel spreadsheet. The other goal could be another academic related goal or related to the 10 TKES standards. You must have at least one academic goal for your class.

Middle School

You should write two goals. One goal should be an academic goal for the content you teach. The other could be related to one of the 10 TKES standards or another academic goal.
