January Preview:

  • During January’s 1st Friday PD, we will be having a Curriculum Map Alignment Workshop. Grade level teams (K-6) will need to merge all individual curriculum maps into one. Subject area teams will be asked to review and update their maps. All grades and subjects will be expected to have standards, formative assessments, and summative assessments (summative assessments should be common for grade level teams). Expectations will be reviewed in January, but we encourage you to dust off your maps in the meantime and make sure they are ready to interact with in January. All maps should be uploaded into the Team Drives.
