Summary of Work:

  • Looking through standards, the Common Core are the same as what we use.
  • Assumption:  Common Core won’t be that much of a change in math for the NYS especially for lower level math courses.
  • Until we have information to the contrary it doesn’t appear we have to prepare any different for Common Core.

 Summary of Work: To date we have set the date for the Senior Conference, we have drafted a staff email that outlines what the Senior Conference day will look like.  The group looked at the Senior Conference day process and assessed it and its merits based on Action-Based research that exists at this time.  Lastly, we began discussions on determining what responsibilities there are and who should allocate these.

Summary of Work:

  • We discussed and finalized the song for our video. We chose the song “Respect” by Aretha Franklin.  We feel that this song ties in with our theme and group charge.
  • We also made sure we collaborated with RTI Group (Jeff Telle) to ensure no overlap.
  • All team members are on board and will be in the video.  We feel that with more teachers and students it will reach further to our audience.
