November 24 and 25 - District Professional Development Days (both days are district-wide)
It is that time of year again and our calendars are quickly flying by, page by page. We're finishing up the first ranking periods, and looking towards our first professional development opportunity.

Click on the title above to access the attachment where you will find the agenda, details, and plans for both days, November 24 and 25. As this day time has been planned strategically, I hope you look forward to it as much as we on the leadership team do. In general, it will be a critical time in district development of our proficiency based education (PBE) system. Conversations and actions from this PD will help move our district forward towards the K-12 PBE vision, and help shape PD for the rest of this year.
Peninsula Students give Presentation on Proficiency-based Education to the School Board (YouTube Link to Presentation Attached)
Principal Michael Eastman detailed Peninsula's strategic approach for implementation of proficiency-based education in the four content areas during the November 4th School Board meeting. The Board and attendees moved to a classroom where Marielle Edgecomb and her students gave a presentation and answered questions on what proficiency-based education looks like in their classroom. Students participating in the presentation were Alexis Hutchins, Ashley Church, Andrew Moshier, and Killian McLean. These students were enthusiastic and positive about proficiency-based education, and expressed how this has challenged them academically. Click on the title above to access their power-point detailing how proficiency-based education is implemented in their classroom.

Thank you to Mr. Eastman, Marielle Edgecomb and the Peninsula students for sharing this with us!
