Curriculum Committee Meeting Via Zoom

Meeting was called to order at 4:45pm.

Present: L. Roberts, J. Garden, S. Jackopsic (Supt/Prin)

Discussion focused around timeline of curriculum implementation and focus areas.  Science and SS will begin more in depth at the start of the 2nd trimester (December) for grades 5-8 and after the new year for grades PK-4.  Committee reviewed draft Distance Learning model and key components.  This will be brought to The Board for adoption this week.  Committee also discussed PE and music positions.  Long-term substitutes will be used at this time for both positions.  Grading and assessing for all grades will be similar to previous years with the exception that music, PE, and art indicators will be adjusted slightly.  Students will not receive a grade for science or social studies for the first trimester.  The Yale Social Emotional Learning online course is now available to all staff.  Course will be available for completion until the end of December.  Time is being provided to staff to complete course.

 

Meeting adjourned at 5:55pm.

 

Respectfully submitted,
