Staffing Assignments for the 19-20 School Year.

Dear Birch Meadow Families,

This year at Birch Meadow, we have focused our professional learning on building collaborative coaching groups.  Gene Thompson-Grove coached Birch Meadow educators in the use of protocols to examine student work, explore professional dilemmas, and problem solve around students.   We collaborated to leverage our collective knowledge about children, learning and teaching so that we can provide the best possible outcomes in social, emotional, and academic learning for all our students. 

In the 2019-2020 school year, we will continue this collaborative model in our data teams, student support teams, and School Leadership Team. 

To distribute our educational skill sets across the school there are several staff moves this year at Birch Meadow School.  Below is the list of educator assignments for the 2019-2020 school year.  These changes specifically support a collaborative model of teaching with each team composed of educators with a varying range of skills.
