Don’t Forget the Coaching

Started the morning visiting the middle school team meetings which they call Fleet Time here. The teachers are passionate and organized. I am going to add this to my weekly schedule to attend one meeting a week here.

Next, I visited the Primary and Intermediate buildings. Very proud of our Primary and Intermediate schools’ focus on literacy. They are partnering with Scholastic on a new reading program. This investment in the program is significant, but getting the resources for anything is never enough. You must also train those who will use it. We are looking at coaching options for the staff.

I am helping the buildings obtain the coaching they need. When you look at what you have invested in a program it only makes sense to add the coaching.

I met with our talented and gifted coordinator from North Point today and learned much. She outlined some possibilities for 0ur staff and students. It was very helpful meeting, and I look forward to working with her.

The high school’s Leadership Council of students led activities outside to focus on building leadership skills. They did a great job.

It was a great day, and I enjoyed talking with the office staff about future plans.
