- final meeting/summative eval. with evaluator by end of May
*Formal Observations - every one will receive one this term...(BoT had initially requested one per teacher per term)
*Enrichment next year - what about a dedicated day to math/writing/reading vs. an independent study? -focus on skills - taught by classroom teachers rather than volunteers? - C Block and Enrichment combo?
