News and Tips

MARCH ITEMS
Here at SI2 we have our own version of “March Madness”--what an exciting month for our own brand of “finals”! This is the month that all the hard work throughout the year comes to fruition. During the year you’ve talked to council members, student body members, analyzed data, identified root causes that are keeping the data from progressing and now, here it is! Time to put it all together into strong and winning Interventions that will help your students achieve great things. You’ll be having Council and Student Body Break-Out meetings 5 this month; this will culminate in entering Interventions and then double-checking your work by looking at the crosswalks. By March 31, you will be ready for April and putting on the finishing touches of your school’s SIP--what a great feeling!

STICKING TO THE TIMELINE
The SI2 calendar has been designed so that all schools may complete their School Improvement Plans on the timeline set by PL221. Steering Teams are strongly urged to stay as close to that timeline as possible. If, however, your team falls behind, it is important to email or call Tina with a catch-up plan.

Tina will begin sending friendly reminders for past due work at a more accelerated pace in March. Please remember that these reminders are to help your team stay on track.
