Principal Update – February 15

Doss Owls

On Friday, the Doss staff spent the morning engaging in discussion around furniture at our new campus.  The purpose was to ensure they had an understanding of what they could and could not bring with them this summer and to help them make more informed decisions about selecting their modernized furniture on Tuesday.

We also conducted an annual compliance training over the Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS) and reviewed the new Human Sexuality and Responsibilites (HS&R) curriculum.  Our staff had some great questions and will spend the next few months learning the curriculum for deployment in late May.

I hope everyone has a wonderful four day weekend.  We will see you and your students back at Doss on Tuesday, February 18th!
