As part of back to school week on BVTM, Assistant Superintendent Kammi Green, joined Barbara Tuesday morning to talk about Anderson-Shiro's upcoming school year.
A "Meet the Teacher" night has been scheduled at both campuses.
The Jr/Sr High Meet the Teacher will be on Tuesday, August 20 from 5 - 7 pm and the Elementary Meet the Teacher night will be Thursday, August 22 from 5:30-7:00 pm
Construction for our new Athletic Complex, Maintenance/Transportation, and new addition to the elementary school, which will add 6 additional classrooms is set to begin in November.
We are excited to be a part of the TIF grant for the United States Department of Education. For the first time in the district, we will have a Campus Learning Leader and Campus Learning Facilitators on each campus who, with the administrators, will lead an increased focus on improved educator quality to ultimately impact student academic growth.
Due to the newly adopted vision and goals created through input from all stakeholders (community members, business members, parents, students and staff), we are implementing school-wide and classroom-level Project-Based Learning this year.
Each campus is expanding their extracurricular offerings for the 2013-2014 school year. The elementary campus is forming a chess and checkers club and the Jr/Sr High campus has formed a Color Guard that will perform with the band.
Staff members are attending sessions at ASCISD Collaborative Learning Conference, August 14 - 23, related to our new McREL teacher evaluation system, comprehensive ongoing professional development system, and Student Learning Objectives(SLOs) in order to learn new researched-based ideas to implement in their classroom to improve student achievement.
