The following information was shared during Administrivia at the 3.25.15 Administrator’s Meeting.
- The current secretary for Curriculum and Elementary Education is retiring. Please note that as of 4.1.15, Krissy Mahan will be the contact for these departments.
- The Year-End Checklist promotion/acceleration information should be submitted to the attention of Krissy Mahan. A memo indicating the final decision for each considered student must accompany a copy of E 5123. Additional guidance is available by reviewing BP and AR 5123 or contacting Dr. Ermold.
- The annual KPBSD Leadership Academy will be held on May 27 & 28 at Soldotna High School. Schools with ten or fewer teachers may register one teacher along with the site’s administrator, while schools with more than ten teachers may register two teachers to attend, along with the site’s administrator(s). Although fewer participants will be funded to participate, those off contract will receive their per diem rate for these days because the District Instructional Team strongly believes the learning, decision making, and subsequent leadership provided by participants in the Leadership Academy constitutes a higher level of engagement and follow up expectation of shared leadership than participation in a sit-and-get training or materials orientation. Names must be sent to Cindy Cornett for registration. Travel requests must be entered in Generation Ready.
- When planning for 2015-16, principals need to ensure there is time allocated during Parent/Teacher conference days for professional development. Any principal who is concerned or who needs help planning to provide adequate time for conferences should contact his/her director for guidance.
