If you miss a class:

As per our agreements for the SBAR pilot, in the event that you miss a SBAR class it is your responsibility to:
1. Notify your content leader and grade level leader in advance.
2. Get class notes from a grade level colleague
3. Post a current assessment on your grade level page on the SBAR wiki. Thoroughly describe the assessment so one of your colleagues could use it in their classroom. This is in addition to your weekly post and responses.
