SUPERINTENDENT’S OCTOBER 2007 BOARD REPORT

 

1.      1.      Curriculum.  PE/Health/6-12 curriculum work will begin with a meeting October 23rd and follow-up on November 8th.  We are planning for a November 8 TESA workshop to be scheduled in the afternoon.  Since we have school in the morning through lunch OSEA staff will be on hand and whether any will be needed in the afternoon is left up to the administrators at each building, PE/H folks and 6-12 music teachers do not need the TESA training and will use that planning time to upgrade their respective curricula with the Curriculum Director.
