    Teaching & Learning

    • We will have advisement tomorrow (Wednesday, 1/20); we will continue to focus on the registration process for next year. Please look for an e-mail later this afternoon from Dale or Kendra for details.
    • Algebra 1 and Geometry EOC Resources - The Achievement Level Descriptors for the new Algebra I and Geometry EOC measures have been posted; the Achievement Level Descriptors for Coordinate Algebra and Analytic Geometry have been updated to reflect the Georgia Standards of Excellence that are used as the basis of instruction this school year. You’ll note that we have kept the 2014-2015 Achievement Level Descriptors posted for those two courses, based on the CCGPS, for interpretative purposes.
    • Student Reports - Parent Resources - Under Parent Resources, we have two new brochures designed to help parents understand the Individual Student Reports. These resources are labeled ‘Parent’s Guide to EOG Score Report’ and ‘Parent’s Guide to EOC Score Report.’ Our thanks to Gwinnett County who created these brochures and allowed us to post for all.

    Teacher Appreciation

    • For our January Teacher Appreciation event, we will recognize all your hard work by offering 15 minute massages during your planning period. Because space is limited for each period, I will send out instructions for registering later this week. We will do everything we can to accommodate all who want to enjoy.

      Massages will be provided by the staff from Tranquil Escapes Day Spa, a new business here in Jackson County. Tips will be welcome for the massage therapist.
