District Blog

This is the official online blog for the Shorewood School District. All content is created and published by Shorewood School District staff. The purpose of the District blog is to disseminate important information to the public in a timely and accurate way. The blog does not publish public comments, but does invite site visitors to submit comments, which are sent by email to District staff. Comments provide the District and the School Board with important feedback from community members regarding the blog posts, and then District staff respond as necessary to the feedback received. While all submitted comments are reviewed, the District does not reply to every comment that is submitted. Thank you for reading our blog.


Weekly Wednesday Blog

Each Wednesday, when students are dismissed an hour early, teachers and instructional staff members hold professional development (PD) sessions. (You can read about some of their work in previous blog entries.) However, instructional staff members aren’t the only ones in the District that receive professional development. Recently, on a Wednesday early release day, the District secretaries met for a PD session. 

During their meeting, the secretaries reviewed and discussed new payroll practices and forms, received an overview of electronic collection of student fees (which will be in place when the 2014-2015 school year gets underway in September), and also held round table discussions. During the discussions, the secretaries had a peer-to-peer question and answer session to compare notes on certain issues, while reviewing how each school, building or department handles common problems. Finally, they wrapped up the meeting with a Skyward refresher. (Skyward is the District’s financial management system.)

Below is a photo of the secretaries during their round-table discussion.
