We will be having SLO Days (Student Learning Outcome) throughout the year to assess the learning outcomes we should expect from our students. Listed below are the SLO Day dates; during the SLO Days for each listed department one grade level will meet with their counselors in place of attending their class in that department.  Entire departments will meet on these days to reflect upon and improve their instruction. Students not meeting with counselors will have an off period in place of that subject’s class, and will need to be in the Commons or Media Center. Signs will be posted telling students which rooms to report to on their assigned days.
