Standards Based Grading vs. Competency Based Education - A Visual



5 Powerful Questions Teachers Can Ask Students



Changes to Junior High Parent/Teacher Conferences
Recently, the Junior High Climate/Culture Building Leadership Team (BLT) reviewed the results of a survey sent to parents regarding proposed changes to Parent/Teacher Conferences. As well, the team consulted with other Junior High teachers. 

Outcomes:
- Starting Spring 2014, parents will be able to use the Parent/Teacher Conference Scheduler to help parents set times with teachers. Time increments will be 10 minutes in length per teacher. More information on how to use the Scheduler will be sent to you as P/T Conferences approach.
- Starting Spring 2014, parents will be able to meet with teachers in the teachers' classroom/teaching space. This is to promote confidentiality while providing constructive feedback regarding the student's class progress.

On behalf of the Junior High Climate/Culture BLT, THANK YOU for taking an active role in your child's education.

Reminder Regarding Professional Development Leave
Please request any Professional Development Leave at least two weeks prior. This allows for transportation to be scheduled, registration to be completed, purchase orders to be processed, and a conversation to be had about how the PD leave request meets the district's goals or teacher's Individual Career Development Plan.

THANK YOU!
Thank you to K & M Metal Designs (Kevin and Mary Ann Neuzil) for manufacturing a new Crestwood High School sign for the HS office. K & M generously donated the sign to the school as well. THANK YOU!!!
