On Friday afternoon, September 4th, teaching staff members in all three Berlin-Boylston schools were busy with a variety of different studies. At the Middle/High School, teachers focused on NEASC (New England Association of Schools and Colleges) documentation work for the upcoming school review in fall 2016. Paraprofessionals learned to access Atlas-Rubicon for curriculum information from courses taught in the middle/high school.
At the elementary schools, the focus was on the Professional Learning Community model followed by time to review the new science curriculum and upload students into the Reading Wonders system. Many of the paraprofessionals and support staff took advantage of time to learn more about Google from our technology integration specialist.
This time for collaboration is vital to the work being done by the teaching staff and administrators. Our next Professional Development Day is scheduled for Friday, October 2nd and is a full day.
