Professional Development Day

All Staff at Menlo-Atherton High School on August 14, 2015

Friday, Aug. 14th, 8:30am-2:30pm

555 Middlefield Road

Atherton, CA

As we look forward to the 2015-2016 school year, our district will continue to focus on Common Core State Standards implementation. Key components of this implementation include our ongoing emphasis on instructional technology and research-based engagement strategies.

The Theme for the August 14th All-Staff PD day is “Common Core Literacy for College/Career Readiness.”

Purpose: To support every teacher and staff member to take the next steps in integrating CCSS literacy standards.

To achieve this purpose, staff members will attend three different sessions throughout the day. The first session will involve choices connected to literacy standards topics and for the second session, teachers will choose a subject area group. The last session will involve choices for School Loop support or Set-Up time.
