Assessment Plan Due by March 21

As we wrap up the third nine weeks, please be prepared to submit your grade level assessment plan for our final nine-weeks no later than Friday, March 21. Our formative, on-going common assessments should guide instructional adjustments, interventions, and enrichment.

Dr. Barlow Visit On Tuesday (Follow-up)

Dr. Barlow's visit was to review the first 45 days of our Targeted School Plan. His review of the common assessments were thorough and he said it appeared we are on the right track with our common assessments and data-driven instruction. The one item I failed to update (and I forgot to mention at TLC) was the use of Classworks. Please work with Heather Bridges to provide any data you might have regarding how Classworks is being used to improve academic achievement. The Classworks rep will be here on Wednesday during your planning so hopefully we will learn how to generate reports that I can share with Dr. Barlow.

Classworks Training March 12

Training will be held Wednesday during every grade level's planning in the conference room. Please bring your laptops.

3rd Nine Weeks Grading Period (Reminder...)

The window to input grades, effort, and comments will be open until 12:00 PM on Friday, March 14 with a data pull at 1:00 PM.

Professional Learning Saturdays

Mr. Lyron has agreed to open our building on two Saturdays, March 22 and April 19, for anyone who would like to work on completion of their professional learning hours. The building will be open from 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM. Thank you Mr. Lyron for doing this!

Area Board Meeting April 15

Please mark your calendar for the area board meeting on Tuesday, April 15, at Shiloh High School if you are able to attend. I will provide more information as it becomes available.

A "leave early pass" will be provided for everyone who attends. I am also looking at providing dinner prior to this meeting. Stay tuned...
