31 We had a half-day today, with a half-day inservice after lunch. In the group I was in, we talked about how we can implement PLCs effectively, how to generate time in our schedule for common planning and working with kids on remediation or enrichment, and some of the demographic issues we are battling. For example, over 40% of the special needs children currently attending school in our district are currently attending my school’s feeder middle school. This population will be coming to us over the next several years, which will make it a big challenge to reach AYP. Anyway, we were all given this book and told to read it by January 9th. Hence, the sticky note. This book will probably reside unread on my bedside table until winter break. Happily, it is short.
