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.
