February 16, 2016
The River Trail School Governance Council requested, and was approved for 3 professional learning days for the 2015-2016 school year. Students will not attend school on these days. River Trail teachers will participate in professional development courses that will increase classroom instruction strategies in the areas of project based learning and critical thinking. These days ONLY apply to RTMS, not students at other Fulton County Schools.
The SGC elections results are in, and we are pleased to announce that Ebony King is the new parent representative on our School Governance Council. Please congratulate the new Council member who will help guide our school over the next two years. Additional school employee and community members will be appointed in the coming weeks. Completing their terms of service on SGC are: Renee Bartley, Charlotte Franklin, and Robin Gardner. The SGC thanks these faithful members for their dedicated service.
New Mathematics Textbooks for HS
The Georgia Board of Education has approved reorganization of mathematics standards to allow local school systems to again provide Algebra 1 and Geometry courses for students in grades 9-12. Parents are invited to review materials and provide feedback for these courses from May 8 through June 5 at each Fulton County high school and the North Learning Center (450 Northridge Parkway, Sandy Springs, GA). Displays with print and digital resources will be available daily with feedback gathered via an online survey using smart phones or a computer onsite. Northview will have these materials on display in the Media Center. Your feedback – and feedback from teachers – will be used to make recommendations for adoption by the School Board in June.
