What procedures are required in your school for the end of the year? I'm in a different school this year and I'm finding out a lot I didn't know would be expected. There is actually a whole packet of things to to in order to get "checked out" before summer. One thing I thought was unusual was that we have to hand in our grade books. It would have been nice to know this back in August. I have been teaching for a while and this has never come up. I'm teaching 2nd grade and we only give 1s and 2s. Plus I went out and bought my own because the small one I was given didn't work for me. I'm not sure on all the other things. I know I have to write up a paper on what I accomplished the year and what my goals for next year will be. I have to return everything about a week and a half before school is over including books. I have to talk to adminsitration for my final evaluation. There are also two room checks of some sort. I was told Cum folders would be "fun". Then there are articulation forms for next year's placement of students. The list keeps going and going. Oh yeah, but I "have the whole summer off, right?" Nope its down to less than 2 months total. I get to continue staff development classes to renew my license. Is your school this complicated at the end of the year?
