Tying It All Together
After a year of data meetings, common core, curriculumwork, and
assessments, ourMay conference daywas used toworkonpreparing
for next year and how the work will align to the district mission,
vision, andgoals to “provide an exceptional, highquality educational
environmentwhere all learners are empowered to succeed.”
To helpwith this, teachersworked in collaborative groupsmade up
of representatives from both buildings. The groups were asked to
create a visual explaining this alignment and then share it out to the
whole group.
