Concerns/Action Taken
1. Is it county rule to not take a day off before a holiday? Why
does it matter if the time is in my check? Always tough day,
and considered best practice.
2. Program expectations, but the program doesn’t work and
we have due dates to complete. Horizons program, most
kids can get it, but teachers are having problems with
completing modules. Teachers should lock the games and
library.
3. During arrival, I can't monitor my class if I'm standing in the
middle of the hallway. I believe students should be monitored
at all times due to if Anything were to happen; the teacher
would be responsible. Can we alternate with the teacher
across from us? Teachers could stand at their door and
greet the students upon arrival and assist with monitoring
the hallway. Each teacher should be facing their classrooms
when standing in the hall first thing in the morning. After the
buses have arrived, teachers can just stand in their doorway
so they can better monitor their rooms. No alternating
teachers, and stay in middle while the bus traffic gets
through.
4. I feel like we are getting new stuff to do all the time. I am not
able to master the first thing before a new "thing" is added
for us to do. Staff morale is not good. Everyone (in lower
grades anyway) feels overwhelmed. Please get a check-off
sheet of everything each grade level needs to do each week
to them so they can check off when the task is done. The
only new program is Horizons. Team wants to know what
the “new” thing is that is a struggle.
5. Can we go to professional development trainings that will be
beneficial when we go back to our classroom? Find out what
staff really needs. District PD? We cannot control what the
district is making staff go to. Our people say tell them what
we want. Teacher led PD would be great! Tell admin if you
would be willing to share.
6. I am very concerned that K-2 teachers are not allowed to use
the reading book in their instruction. I feel that it would
benefit the students. Give them the books and the teacher
manual Not a SIT concern - see Cecil
7. ways to help save paper around the school - Make sure that
when you print something to the copiers that you pick it up.
Go through the piles at the copiers at least once a day to be
sure something you printed is not sitting there waiting for
you (or if we can come up with a central place to put these
papers so everyone can see and go through them.
Also Mrs Troop knows how to reduce paper usage by
integrating pages together and it does not make it very
small. She can show everyone at the staff meeting so we can
all utilize this practice. Please only print things that HAVE TO
HAVE color to the printers. things that can be in black and
white can be printed to the copiers and/or you can get your
kids to color them.....Admin is going to check into printing
issues. For example, the color ink being wasted also.
