We have created a new space on our website for parents to find important information about all of the changes and new initiatives happening in Education. It’s called the “Parent Resource” tab and it is located on the far right side of menu bar that runs across the top of our DISTRICT WEBSITE main page, right under our carousel of photos. Go to www.dublinusd.org and with one click (see the menu on the left after you’ve clicked on the tab) and you will arrive at a bevy of useful resource on topics such as Common Core Standards, Smarter Balanced Assessments, Professional Learning Communities (PLCs), a parent-generated glossary of terms, as well as articles and links that we hope will prove very helpful. We have also included a space for resources and information in Spanish. We envision this tab as an evolving space that will be updated with articles and resources of relevant information that will be helpful as Dublin – along with school districts across the country – navigate significant changes to the education landscape. We view it as a library. You may not need to read everything in the library, but it should have everything you need and that is our goal as we introduce this resource.
Please join our Principal, Dr. Kevin Grier, on Thursday morning March 13th at 8:30am. Our parent community is invited to meet with him to share ideas, update everyone on calendar items and everything else that is happening at Wells. We will meet in our library. Hope to see you there.
What is AP Time? AP Time stands for "Academic Prep Time" and it is a 25 minute period that occurs on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 2nd & 3rd period. It is a program that allows teachers to be able to offer additional support to students within the school day. It also allows students in good academic standing the opportunity to be responsible and choose from a list of options designed as enrichment options or study halls to get a jump on homework for the next day.
