  1. Professional development has been provided for common language on content area literacy (MAX Teaching with Todd Luke) for high school and middle school teachers in August.  The District plans on bringing Todd Luke from Max teaching back to provide more training.  MAX Teaching is also a training that covers the engagement common language.  Administrators will present K20 strategies regularly during the school year.  Engagement presentations by principals, alternate between engagement and content area.  Paraprofessionals were also instructed on engagement by Mrs. Lovelace during professional development.
