Clip to ScrapBook #2

I am retired now, but the beginning of the year was the worst. There were so many forms to keep track of and return to the Office. The first faculty meeting was especially stressful with all the new initiatives and multiple curriculum changes they expected us to be on top of. SGOs needed to be written and returned before we knew it, and that meant endless data collection. We also had a new curriculum director last year, and he insisted on changes to the math SGO we had. Fortunately, we were able to keep the same assessment interest for my final year. And we changed to a standards-based report card which needed even more data collection and more meetings as it evolved. We had more professional control years ago, but now in my district, there's a lot of top-down management and a drive to keep everyone the same. '

I hope your year is a wonderful one once you get past this.
