Action Required for Teachers of Seniors – Please stop in the 12th Grade Unit Office to document the following information on our Senior Jeopardy Spreadsheet:

  • If the Senior needs the course to graduate (ask Susan, Milli of Deidre if you do not know)
  • The date parent or guardian received communication regarding the failure

Need to Know:
  • Year End APPR Meetings – Over the next three weeks we will be conducting our year end meetings.  Our goal is that these meetings are around 30 minutes or less.  However, if you have more than 1-2 pieces of evidence you will need to schedule longer than the 30 minutes.
  • SLO Post Tests and Calculation – Click here for details on the year end SLO process. Remember you can not grade your own SLO post tests.  Please work with a partner from your PLC on the grading.  If you need help see Amy McCabe, any of the teacher leaders or administrators.  Once yoru post tests are graded you can calculate your own SLO score out of 20 using the SLO scale.
