Teacher Equivalent Work Days – August 1-2, 2017

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!

On Tuesday, August 1, and Wednesday, August 2, our teachers will begin the new year with teacher equivalent work days.   These are contractual days built into the school year calendar that allows our teachers to focus on curriculum and instructional updates for the year.

Depending on your grade level and content area there are two major goals for the teacher equivalent days:

  • Course Syllabus and Curriculum Units –  The work for most faculty members over these days will consist of creating a Course Syllabus for every class we offer and making assignments for any curriculum work (revising creating Instructional units and/or unit assessments) that needs to be finished so that we have the most complete curriculum as possible. Each administrator and curriculum coach also has a focus subject and or grade level to help drive this work.
  • Intervention Plans Developed –  People assigned to this team, with the exception of reading recovery teachers, will have work that looks a little different. The people in this team will be working with team leads to develop intervention plans and forms for our district.

Below are resources to help you prepare for the work ahead:
