D04 All teachers will promote student learning by using research-based instructional strategies relevant to the content area to engage all students in active learning to promote key skills.
Welcome back! I hope everyone enjoyed their well-deserved Fall Break. Kudos to the leaders of TCS regarding the "Science for Everyone" activities held Monday (10/14). Students actively engaged in hands-on science experiences involving exploration and problem-solving. This served to enhance their creativity, logic, and perception. Likewise, instructional focus walks conducted this week revealed elementary teachers implementing the new math curriculum with fidelity. Students were observed highly engaged and collaborating with their peers to reason through math tasks. This will ensure retention of information through application.
Response: We are so thankful for all the work done to make these things happen. We can see the changes coming already.
Congratulations to the leaders, faculty, staff and students at TCS for their tremendous gains in CCRPI!
TCS made a fourteen-point gain in a year 52.1 (CCRPI SY18) to 66.1 (CCRPI SY19)!! In certain cases, curriculum changes were made second semester of last school year! This is a testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone to increased student achievement! Kudos to all!
Again, please take the time to celebrate all that this means to the students of Taliaferro County Schools and the community as a whole!! Great job!!
Response: We served a cake for the faculty and cupcakes on Friday for students. We are ecstatic about the growth we have shown.
