    Progress Update:
    11/8/2021:  Our team has focused heavily on implementing WIN time in reading, math, and for behavior (some buildings).  Every building is now implementing WIN, some in one subject, some in all areas.  Our K-6 teachers have had the opportunity to share how WIN looks at their building with each other, and our 7-12 has been trained on the flex period program.

    The RPS Grading Committee has met four times to discuss our goal for grading and expectations, dug into best practices in grading, looked at various frameworks, and identified practices we need to further explore.

    We have built in time for teacher teams to develop common formative and summative assessments during each professional learning day.  The PLC Work Groups have been restructured to focus on specific areas that buildings are wanting more information on (i.e. deeper dive into WIN time, responding when students get it, etc).
