Curriculum goes to board!
Friday, May 12, 2017, the education committee will (hopefully) approve the curriculum maps from the new curriculum that was written. When approved it goes to pilot for next school year where we use it and provide feedback for adjustments. Full implementation will happen the following year.
Atomic Learning to Replace EDUPlanet next year!
The school district is moving to a new online PD platform that will streamline and make things much easier to complete. It’s called atomic learning and it is available now if you would like to use it. Just click the link and use your novell login. Most of the sessions are trade time eligible with approved RPL.
Laptop carts are going to be updated and collected at the end of the school year. Devices will be collected at the direction of the technology department at the end of the school year.
June 5, 2017: Schoology Training in the morning. The afternoon is still being discussed. I am hoping we can get together as a group. Stay tuned…
Monday, June 12, 2017, from 8-4, we will be doing new curriculum planning for next year. You can register on 48 carats now. Hope to see everyone! There will be a brief group session, and then we will break out by level.
On Thursday, June 15, 2017, from 8-4, I will be running a Health & Wellness Innovation Workshop at PATTAN in Harrisburg. The cost is $45 and you can register at psahperd.org. Mr. Kirkpatrick has said that there is money available if you would like to attend. Please complete an RPL. It is going to be awesome!
Things for Next Year:
With the change in curriculum, I have been considering (and asked by D.O. admin) to look at the secondary uniform policy. I know where most of you stand on the policy and realize whatever is decided will not make everyone happy. I am going to vet this with admin, but before I do, this DRAFT policy is open for comment by you. Please do so by next Friday, May 19.
As you wrap up this year and think of needs that you have for next year, please begin to enter budget items for next year. Keep in mind that we want to keep a five year plan for budget items so that we can plan for bigger expenses.
