Will Staff be trained on Gradebook and PI?
Yes. Staff has been receiving training in Gradebook since 2005. Additional training will be provided through the spring and fall. By April 2011, 19 elementary staffs will have received intensive training on the PI system with continued follow-up and support for the Gradebook. Additionally, the Sequoyah and Kilo math teams, and 4 Math teachers at TJHS are piloting the PI system. For fall 2011, the remaining 4 elementary schools as well as the secondary schools will all receive intensive training and support. All teachers are tentatively scheduled to receive training on the new grade book, power standards, learning targets, and SBE in late August.
