The Superintendent Chronicle: A Week in Review


To stay consistent with our focus on transparency, I believe that it is important to keep district staff and the community up-to-date on the decisions that are being made. I will be reporting each Monday, through this blog, on the important events that occurred the previous week in a series titled “The Superintendent Chronicle: A Week in Review”. This blog reviews what was a high priority for me the week before and explains the “why” behind important district decisions.

·        Attendance at the Forward Janesville Banquet
This provided an opportunity to network with strategic alliance partners for the District.

·        Conference call with Abu Dhabi to discuss International plan
I connected with the U.S. Commercial Services in Abu Dhabi Wednesday night to discuss their government’s interest in k-12 curriculum and schools from the U.S. They primarily have British schools; however, there is a high demand for American schools, with a number of investors wanting to start an American school there. Someone from their government will be following up with me shortly.

·        Professional Development
On Thursday, Licensed Administrators and Academic Learning Coaches were trained on evaluating teachers through CESA 6. This was the first of four training sessions.

·        JEA Meeting
The JEA met on Thursday to provide an opportunity to listen to teachers and others in the JEA and discuss their thoughts regarding professional development, supervision and evaluation.
