Remember to Breathe

With looming due dates, upcoming school events and planning for the 2019-2020 school year, remember to breathe.  We’ve all been here before and have met all the deadlines.  Please be mindful of your own energy as you transmit that to your students.  If you’re calm and collected, so will they.  If you’re stressed and flustered, so will they.  If I can be of any assistance, please reach out.

End of Year Classroom Celebrations
If you will be having an end of year classroom celebration and will not be eating lunch in the Cafeteria, please let the Cafeteria Manager know as soon as possible. The Office also needs to know if you are allowing any parents to bring food during the day. (Remember that classroom parties are limited to two per year, usually at the end of each semester.)


Focused Interim Assessment Blocks (IABs)

In the 2019–2020 school year, Smarter Balanced will begin releasing new Interim Assessment Blocks (IABs) focused on fewer assessment targets than most current IABs. These focused IABs are designed to measure smaller bundles of content to give teachers a better understanding of students’ knowledge and academic performance and provide teachers with precise next steps for instruction. The 107 existing IABs will continue to be available to educators. These 107 include some IABs that meet the definition of a focused IAB: 19 in ELA that assess 1 target, and 20 in mathematics that assess 1–3 targets.  Both existing IABs and new focused IABs consist of 10–15 items. For more information please click here to download the infographic.
