Highlights of Day 1 Feedback • I'm excited to see a clear school wide plan for using data. • I feel like I am part of a larger school community… • I am excited to see a common theme to frame our work • I enjoyed learning more about my colleagues!
Highlights of Day 1 Feedback • I'm looking forward to seeing our progress this year. I think we're on the path to success. • That we're a community and that we all have a voice and that my voice counts. • I began to think about how I will need to step out of thinking about just my classroom to take ownership of all the students in the school.
Highlights of Day 1 Feedback • I think these will enrich the discussions at our grade level meetings. • I am looking forward to signing up for a team and become a more active Curley team member. • How do we bring this to light and share it with our students?
Highlights of Day 1 Feedback • This will only work if each and every staff member is held accountable. • I heard several behind me commenting how well the AAF aligns with their current practice and beliefs. • I love when our own staff presents. It makes it more real because the teachers are from the Curley and so we know what we are talking about.
Actions Based on Feedback • Updated Feedback Form • Curley K8 Connect Page will have specific pages dedicated to AAF and ANet to share ideas and post questions. • Yesterday’s presentation was the beginning of the process. The conversation and implementation will continue at grade and content level meetings.
