From the Principal

Friday afternoon, the teachers were very productive! English teachers met to debrief about lessons they piloted using 2 different CDE-approved Reading curriculums. After much thoughtful discussion, the ELA team selected Benchmark Advance as GVA-DC’s new Reading curriculum! Immersion teachers met to develop interrater reliability before evaluating 5th-grade capstone projects. It was a BUSY Friday!!
