     Common Planning Time Presentation
     
    Cherokee Principals Donna Charlesworth & Len Iannelli and Seneca Principal Jeff Spector gave a presentation to the Board of Education about Common Planning Time, which is professional development time that every teacher has built into their schedule. Teachers have 57 minutes two out of every four days to collaborate on lesson planning, create projects & assessments and participate in collegial dialogue to share practices and improve pedagogy. The principals also shared a little of what each school's Common Planning Time looks like.
