LEA Goals for 2009-2010 • Principals will monitor classrooms once a month when classroom data shows little or no improvement. • The Principal and Reading Coach will develop and implement actions plans to help that teacher, (It may be the reading coach working with a teacher in their classroom, or some type of professional development). This plan must be implemented before the next PM data gathering.
LEA Goals for 2009-2010Continued • After the action plan is implemented, the Principal will sit down with the teacher again and discuss how the action plan worked or did not work.
