  • [11/30]: Complete Learning Community Pre-Work

    Please see the Learning Community information here to access the brief pre-work you will need to complete by 11/30.



    All teachers teaching 3rd through 12th grade will administer a student survey that measures students’ current perceptions of themselves around their growth mindset, self-efficacy, and social awareness. As you plan for the start of the year, identify a date/time within the first three to four weeks to administer the survey and use this Student Survey Overview document for step by step directions to administer the surveys.

    • All 1CMs: You were introduced to student surveys and QuickKey at your Strong Start session on 8/8 or 8/20, so you may begin administering your surveys. If you have any questions, please reach out to your TFA Coach or Chrissy Gratz at christine.gratz@teachforamerica.org.

  • Please note the change of date for Learning Communities in December. Learning Communities will take place on Tuesday, December 4th (not Dec 5th as shared in the Overview).

  • Visit this CM Tracker for information about your attendance and deliverables completion throughout this year.
