Welcome, and thank you for working to make 2014-2015 an excellent school year!
Teachers – the most important variable!
Greatest Lesson Learned
Monthly Meeting Schedule: Leadership Meetings (LM) will remain 1st and 3rd Wed. of each month. 1st LM will be PD focused and 2nd LM will be more nuts & bolts focused with exceptions as needed. For example, Darrell Barringer, AdvancED SC State Director, can only come Sept. 17.
1st and 3rd Wednesday: Leadership Meeting (8:30 a.m. start time)
2nd Monday: API’s (1:30 p.m. start time)
2nd Tuesday: Counselors (1:30 p.m. start time)
2nd Thursday: All Academic Coaches (8:30 a.m. start time)
3rd Thursday: Content Area Leadership Team (CALT) (3:30 p.m. start time)
Summer Reading Camps Next Steps – Participating student names need to be provided to their 2014-15 teacher so teachers know if they have a student that participated in the Summer Reading Camps. Teachers need to start a Running Record early and complete a Fountas & Pinnell text reading level assessment before the end of August to document Fountas & Pinnell level growth.
In addition to F&P data, MAP data will also be used to evaluate the impact of the Summer Reading Camp on student achievement. RTI should be immediately implemented for all students not reading on grade level.
Best wishes for a great 2014-2015 school year!
