On September 11th, the Alliance Consultation Team and the administration’s team met in the first Consultation meetings of this school year. Watch for the full Consultation Update coming next week. In the meantime, here are some timely highlights:
Leave days: SAISD Policy does not require an employee to seek approval from his/her principal or supervisor in order to use leave days nor does it require the submission of a form in order to use leave days. (See additional details in SAISD Administrative Procedure D-7 regarding notification, which is different from approval.)
Fontus & Pinnel Running Records: Principals have been notified that the deadline for F&P running records is October 25. Fontus and Pinnel Running Records Update: We just received information from the district literacy department concerning the amount of paper copies (and /or clicks) that need to be made in order to implement the F & P Running Record initiative. Dr. Thomas, senior coordinator for literacy, has emailed all non-SFA campus principals that a case of paper has been purchased for each campus to help. Thanks to the Alliance Consultation Team for bringing this issue to their attention.
Early Release Days: Principals received a memo last week with guidelines.
Staff lunch time will occur after students leave. The two hours after lunch is teacher professional time to be used at the teacher’s discretion for planning, preparing, collaboration, etc..
