Mrs. Corle, Mrs. Hendershot, Mr. Leisher, Mrs. Younker, and Mrs. Trail will be
attending TIU 11’s Leadership Summit in
the topics that will be discussed are as follows: new teacher evaluation tool and the progress the state department is making on the implementation of this instrument,
common core transition, graduation requirements,SAS updates, Keystone Exams, technology, etc.
The IU is proposing to organize and run an AP Academy for all districts so that all students across the IU11 region have access to AP courses in the four core areas of: AP English Lit, AP Biology, AP Us History, and AP Calculus. To accomplish this, select teachers from various districts will begin their training this summer and prepare for the pilot implementation the next school year. Teachers may come from any of our nine districts. The course will be delivered via videoconferencing and/or a combination of other virtual approaches to education. The 2011-2012 school year will be a planning year with teachers and administrators who will organize each of the courses for delivery in the fall of 2012. Justin Sholes is the teacher from SFHS that will be participating.
