LCSD CLASS/Collaboration Project

K-6 & Secondary Model Classroom Teachers Announced!

As part of the implementation pilot for Career Pathways and job embedded Professional Development, we are happy to announce Model Classroom teachers for the remainder of the 2013-2014 school year. Any teacher will be able to schedule time for observation and debrief to support professional growth. 

To schedule time, simply click on Model Classroom Observation Request to be linked to a brief survey for us to know which Model Classroom Teacher you are interested in observing and why. This is a great opportunity for us to learn from our colleagues; include as a strategy for meeting personal professional growth goals; and to engage in job-embedded professional development. 

 Congratulations to our Model Classroom Teachers!
