September 28, 2015 - Week 4
The Week In Review
Monday: IDP/Growth Goals due....see below....
I purchased shirts for every staff member at Rankin. If you did not get one, feel free to get one from the teacher's lounge. The larger sizes are gone XL and 2X. I am placing another order so let me know if you are in need of a shirt and your size if it is not available in the lounge (or your shirt was too small and you need a larger size).
If you have not provided me with a copy of your daily schedule please get that to me. If you are still tweaking it just get me your best estimate.
As of now the TeachScape system is not working to add you IDP or Professional Growth Goals. So it looks like you will need to type it on the forms that were sent to you. If things change Monday early I'll have you type it into the system, since that would be the easiest and save paper....However, I need them submitted to me by the end of the day on Monday. I need to review them to have them approved/in by Wednesday.
Attendance Call System
The district is exploring putting in place the automated system of calling student's homes when they are not in school for the day. A program available thru Synergy and School Messenger. This will require teachers to have attendance in prior to when the automated calls go out. You may want to set up a protocol/system for inputting attendance first thing in the morning.
