What's New for 2011 ...

With the onset of the second decade of the 21st Century upon us ... I reflect about the present and the future. In the immediate future, the remainder of this school/fiscal year, our plans include (but are not limited to the following):

get the final tax levy for final budgeting and forecast budgeting for the school
planning for "Life Safety" projects like pipes, doors, etc.
planning for collective bargaining negotiations with the teacher's union
reviewing and assessing the myriad of learning interventions associated with the normal course of doing business and the initiatives related to RtI and problem solving and PBIS
reviewing and planning for instructional technology needs at the classroom and school levels
overhauling of the teacher evaluation process and instrument (bringing it up to School Code and Best Practices) - we are seriously reviewing the Danielson Model.
continuation of the coaching approach to teacher effectiveness and staff effectiveness
implementation of a staffing plan for the coming school year
customer service inventories for stakeholders including students, parents, staff, community members
celebrating the excellence at the school
planning, doing, assessing, re-doing, planning some more and doing some more

So - Welcome 2011! We have a lot planned to make this a great year!
