  5. Summer PLC Sessions • Approximately 300 teachers attend our Summer Literacy PLC Sessions with a focus on: • Curriculum Guides & Data Teams • Close Reading • Using Technology to Support Instruction • Science, Social Studies and Health • Approximately 300 teachers attend our Math PD Sessions with a focus on: • Investigating the Iowa Common Core Standards The feedback we received was very positive!

  6. Textbook Inventory The direct quote from the contracting team…“Des Moines Public School buildings were the most organized we have seen to date. Buildings did an excellent job in setup and staging of books which made our work extremely efficient.” In total the contracting team inventoried 55 buildings in 11 days, bar coding an estimated 160,000 textbooks. The success of this grand project is testament to all of your hard work.
