The staff members of EISD have officially started the 2010-2011 school year. The first official day back was Tuesday; however, MS and HS teachers participated in training on Monday, so they were back a day early. Many other teachers and staff members have been around since August 9. They have been getting their classrooms ready and some have been meeting in teams to plan strategies and update curriculum. Everyone is excited about the accountability ratings for 09-10 and equally excited to get the new school year underway.
So far this week, the following activities have occurred:
Monday – Discovery Learning training for MS and HS
Tuesday – Discovery Learning training for MS and HS; PS and IS had campus meetings throughout the day
