Feeder Pattern/School Visits

After looking at the testing calendar for this spring, Katy and I moved a few dates around for the Feeder Pattern/School Visits. Please reference the list below.

Feeder Pattern Visits

Katy and I are planning on doing Feeder Patter visit days this year. You can find our tentative schedule below. Although it is our goal to visit each school on the list, we may not make it to all. These visits are not evaluative and are an opportunity for us to listen to your feedback, tell us support you may need and to see the amazing things you all day everyday. Katy will be reaching out to principals to inform them of our visits. I will send a reminder email the week prior to the schools.

Tentative Visit Schedule

Will be rescheduled - January 24 - Johnson Park MS and Sherwood MS, Berwick Alternative, Walnut Ridge HS, and Eastmoor Academy

February 12 (Changed from April 9) - Columbus Africentric Early College, CAHS, Columbus City Prep School Boys and Girls and Linden McKinley STEM Academy

February 26 -Yorktown MS and Champion MS, Independence HS and East HS

March 14 (Changed from March 26) - Hilltonia MS, Westmoor MS and Wedgewood MS, West HS and Briggs HS

When using items from the Team Drive for instruction - Please make a copy of the file first, and place in your own My Drive. Only member of the Team Drive can access the files, and I will receive access requests when documents are shared with anyone outside of the Team Drive members try to access the documents.

This will also allow you to make changes to documents without changing them for everyone!

For directions on making a copy of a document and moving it to your own drive, click here.
