I will be completing informal observations over the next few weeks for both teachers and EA's. In order to make the most of each visit, I will probably complete them at the same time, if that is possible in your schedule. No need to change your normal routines.

I would also like to schedule meetings with each of you (as a team) to go over how things are going (in general or more specific items if you have them) as well as discuss expectations as far as end-of-year evaluations are concerned.

I will send out a Google Doc to sign-up for these team meetings. I will try and complete your informal observations before our meeting.

Mandated Reporters

As a reminder, we are all mandated reporters for any suspected abuse or neglect of our students. If you need to report something, please give me a heads-up that you have or are about to make the call.
