Before students return to school, teachers from Georgia, Fairfax and Fletcher participate in two days of learning, training, collaborating and planning. In “school speak” we refer to this time as inservice.

CNQXfRYVAAAqgqKInservice (adjective) meaning

  1. (of training) intended for those actively engaged in the profession or activity concerned.
This year the full teaching faculty began the year together learning about what is new in the world of Vermont Education and what is new in Franklin West Supervisory Union. Superintendent Ned Kirsch’s welcome back presentation can be viewed here.

Day 2 was devoted to our individual schools getting ready for our students. Faculty meetings, additional training, and time in classrooms are the focus.
