A Celebration of the Week and What's Ahead! (October 14)
Staff Development Day, October 24th
Afternoons for all elementary staff is dedicated back at home sites to focus on and accomplish Learning Team and SCIP action items. Benchmark Assessments, reports from MDE, have arrived to our district and map out how Grainwood performed on all of the benchmarks that were assessed on the MCA reading, math and science assessments. These reports are crucial for helping us understand specific areas of underperformance of our students. From that data, we can then develop curricular and instructional improvements (Action Plans in all 3 areas) to make sure we are best meeting the needs of our students.
For anyone who has not viewed our School Improvement Plan (SCIP)...here is a link:
