Gearing up for Testing

With only 5 weeks of instruction left before testing we will be focusing our observations on bell to bell instruction. In some classes we have observed students being asked to copy down notes from the board. To help with this we will be increasing the copy quota by 500 additional copies each month so that these items can be printed for students. We would like to see students engaging with materials in the most meaningful matter possible. Similarly, all technology will be collected by the end of the month so systems can be updated and cleaned up in preparation for May 1, our first day of SBAC testing.
