Specialty and Nest cluster teachers: if you have unassigned periods (colored pink on schedule)…
- Connect with classes you will work most closely with (e.g. two Nest classes for Nest clusters) to meet students, support classroom teachers, co-plan with classroom teachers, etc.
- If you are a mentor: you can use this time to support your mentee in his/her classroom.
- If there is time when you are not testing students, connect with classes in the two grades you will co-teach with, particularly the classes with students requiring 360 minutes of ENL (i.e. “01” classes).
- PK does not have scheduled preps as students have half day dismissal. PK teachers should use a lunch and professional preparatory period after student dismissal.
