Keeping Everyone Informed:
A Hallway Calendar of
Important Events, Dates


Another important element of staff motivation is keeping staff informed. We have a school bulletin board Web site and a staff bulletin board site too; forms, handbooks, sub lists, and other important and useful information can be found on those sites. We also do a monthly calendar that can be found inside the entrance to our school, visible for all to see. It is a whiteboard, so important events and deadlines -- even staff or student birthdays -- are easy to add. We feel strongly about keeping all stakeholders informed and this whiteboard is one of the tools we use to achieve that goal.
