  5. Observation Feedback • When a classroom observation is performed, written feedback will be provided to you. • For classroom walk-throughs, occasional feedback may be provided. If you do not receive feedback and would like some, simply ask.

  6. County Update • The county science fair date will be Thursday Dec. 13th at Jordan-Mathews which has offered to be the host site again. We appreciate Jordan-Mathews offering to be the host site again given their central geographic location and their experience at hosting the event. • Additional information will be forthcoming about exact timelines. Schools are free to set their own date for your particular school’s science fair date.
