What happens on ILT Day?

Working together for the sake of the students...

Our faculty and staff appreciate having the time to work together on our recent ILT day.

Last Friday our teachers were able to meet with their Impact Learning Team (ILT) colleagues from across the district. The time they spend together in these afternoons are so important for taking your students forward in their learning! Teachers look at student learning data, and determine areas to target in their teaching. This way they can make sure there are no gaps and that all students are given opportunities to learn at their highest levels. This was the first meeting of this school year. Teachers came away with target goals and tools to enhance their teaching - which will in turn enhance your child’s learning. Teachers appreciate this time to collaborate and touch base with their co-workers from other campuses and classrooms.

Below, you can hear from some of the teachers and catch a glimpse of what they were doing:
