All of the staff members for EISD will be reporting today. It is our first, full in-service day of the 09-10 school year. So, what exactly happens on an in-service day? At the beginning of the year, in-service days are full of lots of meetings: general meetings, insurance meetings, UIL meetings, and campus meetings. Besides meetings, the in-service days also contain professional development for EISD staff members. The professional development might consist of learning new software, incorporating technology into lessons, or working on curriculum. Of course, a certain amount of time must be devoted to preparing classrooms for the soon to arrive students. Preparations must also be made for meet the teacher night. Following the in-service day, the band directors and coaches will continue to hold practice sessions.
I am looking forward to a fantastic school year!
