8/24/15 > Sub Rotation List
This is just a friendly reminder that all team teachers and other instructional staff names will be put into a hat for subbing throughout the year when needed. Once your name is pulled to sub, it won't be put back into the hat until all names have been pulled. The rotation will then start over. Please remember that we only have two full-time subs for 88 teachers, so a rotating sub list is necessary. Administration will make every effort to plan and notify with as much notice as allowed. Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.

8/24/15 > Teachers-Sprint Folders
I will get your Red Sprint folders to you by the end of the week.
Students were still transferring in and out of classrooms as of Friday
last week and some may still do so this week. Therefore, by the end of
the week classroom enrollments should be pretty stable, I will get rosters
from Brenda and distribute the folders.

You will need to visit the cloud to get the new SPRINT guide as there were
changes made last summer. Please download and review as needed. You will
need to provide more evidence to prove interventions were implemented and
at least two interventions will need to be completed before it is brought
to SPRINT. As Freddy mentioned I will visit each grade level and the new
process will be discussed. As in the past I will be available to assist
you with this process as well as your grade level curriculum person who
helped update and develop the new process.

Thank you and have a GREAT YEAR!
