Working together to transition freshmen & transform schools from the bottom up!
Thanks for sharing, Elizabeth. Be sure to share with the rest of us things your school is learning.
By the way, let me know if you need any professional development assistance. Ray Moore and I work with schools on their Freshman Transition needs all the time. You can check out more at www.solutionsetc.org.
What kind of professional development are you all getting?
And what does the freshman academy include?
Curious...my school is considering a few different ideas.
I am interested in knowing how your freshman academy is going. We lost our high school this past May when an F-5 tornado passed through Joplin, MO. We are in temporary buildings right now with 9/10 together and 11/12 together. We are in the process of deciding what the design of our new school will be. We have not and will not be replacing textbooks. Our students all received a computer. (Macbook) I am interested in how things are going with your new initiative.
