Each year, the Pattonville Board of Education establishes priorities to address in the coming school year. The priorities help the district fulfill its goals outlined in its Comprehensive School Improvement Plan.
Eighty-five teachers attended the first day of the Virtual Teacher Cohort Training series on July 24 at Holman Middle School. The teaching and learning department developed this five-day program for teachers who have a strong interest in learning more about virtual instruction.
The Pattonville Board of Education meeting on July 28 will take place in person at 7 p.m. at the Pattonville Learning Center. The board, staff and all others in attendance must wear a face mask at all times while in the building. Physical distancing will be followed during the meeting, with all attendees seated six feet apart. To ensure physical distancing, in-person attendance will be limited to 50 people. If the number of guests exceeds 50, an overflow room will be available.
The maintenance department has been working this summer to provide the necessary equipment to keep students and faculty safe. On July 24, they installed custom-made clear plexiglass barriers at Bridgeway Elementary School and will travel to the other schools in the district later this summer.
As the district continues to plan and prepare for the 2020-2021 school year, teachers at Pattonville High School attended an in-person extended learning opportunity today to be trained on Canvas, the new learning management system for students.
