    These are all valid concerns…

    You’re right that SBG is a great way to approach the assessment and evaluation process, but sometimes district requirements can get in the way. The one silver lining about some of their restrictions with feedback / reporting is that I think by looking / reflecting more on the actual common core standards, you might gain deeper insight and understanding of what they really mean. There are some interesting pieces to navigate (ie: ratio and rate reasoning… it’s hard to comment with that language if I’m not certain what ratio reasoning and rate reasoning is).

    Another part is trying to find a way to align your practices with your colleagues. This might involve some give and take, which is super challenging.

    Keep us posted on how things are progressing and how we can best help!
