Levy County Schools Already Preparing for New School Year
For some Levy County students, thinking about next school year may be the last thing on their minds during summer break. At the same time, for the teachers and staff the end of one school year presents a great opportunity to prepare for the next one.
Over the next three days, the staff here at Williston High School will take part in "DEEP FRI" Training. "FRI" stands for the Florida Reading Initiative. Teachers and staff members work in groups to discuss problems at the school and how they can be improved.
"If you do it just prior to the next year, then some of the things that we may want to accomplish, there would not be enough time to have in place for the next school year," said Williston High principal John Lott.
The training session focused on how to create a new school improvement plan and also improve FCAT reading scores. Teachers and staff said this level of work is a step in the right direction.
"The activity, even though it has geared down some with kids because they're no longer here, it has really picked up with the faculty because they're anxious to get started and plan for next year," said Judy Welborn, Williston High's reading coach.
