Alternate Assessor Assignments

Retention Meetings

Please remember to schedule a conference with parents to discuss retention with those who are valid candidates for retention. Remember these are families that you have had meetings with all year long to discuss their child's gaps, they received the February 25th In Danger of Retention letters, and have been Tier 3 students in MTSS. These meetings should be scheduled with an administrator and a Light's Retention Scale should be completed and discussed with administration prior to scheduling.

Every Child, Every Day

As 4th Quarter requires many to review essential skills taught throughout the year, it also is more difficult to keep students engaged. With our End of Quarter/Grade assessments on the horizon, please be diligent in planning until the last day of school. With a heighten number of discipline referrals around holidays/breaks, please keep in mind structure and engaged activities until the last day. What a great time to utilizes Project Based Learning opportunities, cooperative group assignments, book studies, etc. Thank you for knowing how important it is to teach and shape lives!
