Instructional Expectations and the Common Core PD
_Achievement Support Initiatives Coach Sarah Tierney's PD and your work with her was outstanding around performance task alignment to the targeted Common Core Learning Standards.
Below are downloadable files of all materials used during Sarah's session with us. Please evaluate your maps and performance tasks using these materials and modify accordingly.
Please complete Period Attendance by the first 15 minutes of each period and bring the folders to the main office by end of your last class. Ms. Fowler has had to stay late because folders are not being returned on time.
An additional report has been added that shows students who have been marked "present" for the day, but are absent for their subject classes. In other words, they swipe in, sign in or only attend 3rd period. It is mandatory that teachers take attendance correctly. Let Ms. Pacheco know which students are chronically absent and calls will be made.
We also agreed to be in the hallways during period changes. It only takes a minute or so to step to your door and herald students into your class and encourage others to move along.
Please do not allow students into your classroom who are not scheduled to be there. Students must be in their assigned classes at all times unless permission has been granted by their subject area teacher to work elsewhere.
