Team Meadow Update

April 22, 2019

Team Meadow -


I truly hope that this past weekend was restful and rejuvenating for all of you. Thank you in advance for providing rich learning opportunities for these wonderful little people in our presence.


Observations - Lauren and I are in process of wrapping up many spring observations. We love seeing you in action with your kids as you employ your instructional moves for the little people in your space. Remember that no song and dance is required, but rather, the observation should reflect your typical instructional approaches.


Staff Meeting TODAY- (2:40-4:30). We will be viewing the Reject documentary together at that time.


ZTEP/ZTEP+ Update - A quick review of some upcoming important items:

  • By May 1st - (ZTEP+) This is the last day for teachers to upload feedback forms and reflections
  • By May 5th - Last day for teachers to upload artifacts.


SLOs (TLO/CLO) -
  • As you receive your SLO data, you may begin submission of documentation (post-work) in SFS.
  • SLO data is due to each teacher’s primary evaluator by 5 working days after the last teacher contract day for the school year. (Due June 5th)


Have a great day, team. Thanks for being flat-out amazing at this work that you do each day,

Tom
