security team

Last month we focused on reviewing security protocols and procedures as individuals and with your students. This month, we urge you to ensure your own safety precautions. As a staff it is always important to keep your cars parked and locked in a designated spot. Additionally, for building security, remember to keep your classroom doors always in the locked position, refrain from propping exterior doors, and always refer visitors to the main entrance. Thank you for putting safety first!

school-wide data team

The SWDT has worked to create a document to provide staff with student feedback from the post it notes collect during the semester 1 Scholar Hour. Please see additional document for feedback.


On January 24th the committee began creating a second lesson for Connections that showcases a video and discussion for the students on how to handle conflict.
We also evaluated data from ARC visits in the first semester and are planning for some changes in the ARC process that will improve feedback to teachers as well as minimize class disruptions from discipline distribution. Based on this data we are also working on a plan to aid non-tenured teachers in establishing effective classroom management strategies early on in their career.
