Pacing Info for October 10th

posted Oct 9, 2014, 6:52 AM by Yuba City Teachers Association

Hello YCTA,


Both YCTA and YCUSD agreed that teachers need time to process and plan for the implementation of Common Core.  This Friday, October 10 (voluntary workday) begins to address that need.


The agenda sent by Doreen sets forth the basic expectation of teachers using the day to plan for instruction in collaborative teams. The limited agenda leaves the planning open-ended to allow teachers to plan together to address our needs in implementing Common Core in our classrooms.  


YCTA will follow up with a YCTA membership survey regarding professional development, including Oct. 10. Please participate in this brief survey to inform YCTA's continuing advocacy for professional growth.


Please remember that if you choose to participate on Friday, you will only be paid if you work the entire seven hours unless you become ill and must leave during the day.  You will be asked to sign in and sign out.  You will be paid on the 10th of the month.


Stay in touch, Dina
