Classroom Expectations for Growth Plans and Classroom Observations

Classroom Observations will begin next week and after meeting with several staff members regarding their Growth Plans, I think it is important for everyone to know what the expectations are for what we will be looking for during the observation.

1. The What, Why, and How should be visible at all times in your classroom. The What is your learning objective and the Why is how you are making learning Relevant. The How would be an agenda of learning activities for the lesson.

2. Evidence of student Input/Feedback and Achievement Data is required, but does not need to be posted or visible at all times.

WiFi Update

Plans are in place to have our building wide WiFi turned on in the next couple of weeks. Currently, students are able to use the WiFi in our Library and Student Center. Additional Chrome Books have been added for use in the Student Center. We now have 40 total for you to use when your reserve these learning spaces.
