LONGEVITY AWARDEES AND RETIREMENT HONOREES
Dear Summer Read 6! fans,
After 8 successful years of sharing thousands of books
with children in the summer,
the Raising Readers Committee has decided to change directions.
We are starting younger – with Great Falls babies!
Our new project will get children one book each month,
mailed to their home, from birth to their 5th birthday!
We hope you will join us as we launch Every Child a Reader.
This project is sponsored by the Early Childhood Coalition and GFPS
with generous funding from the Great Falls Public Schools Foundation and United Way.
Learn more about it here!
To All Certified Staff:
PIR registration for the 2020-21 school year begins at 6 AM on Monday, May 4. It is highly suggested to register as soon as possible. The complete list of available courses can be found here: http://bit.ly/20-21-PIR-LIST
To fulfill the 187 day contract, each teacher needs six DD PIR credits and 12 more credits that are flexible (additional DD credits or just plain PIR credits.) These credits are taken outside the duty day and/or contract year because they are traded for two (MEA) days off in mid-October and one day off on MLK Day.
There are some changes on the PIR options. More details on the latest 2020-2021 District Directed PIR Options here.
