Be a part of Mapping our Future. Committee work on the Continuous School Improvement Plan (CSIP), began last month as a part of the sixth, and most recent, Missouri School Improvement Program (MSIP 6). The steering committee has been gathering data and conducting surveys to help define the focus of its work as Fort Zumwalt creates its guiding document for the next three years. At the Feb. 7 forum (next Tuesday), participants will hear from the committee about its work so far and have the opportunity to ask questions about the CSIP process and the district’s goals. https://app.peachjar.com/flyers/2404281/schools/94314

Interested students sign up with their lunch table and meet with DMS teachers for lunch in the library. Students practice good communications skills, proper etiquette and table manners. It is also a great way for teachers and students to interact in a more relaxed environment.

Real-world experience. Connections with people who are doing the job. Fort Zumwalt Career Technical Education programs aren’t just for those interested in manufacturing. Meet the Cadet Teachers. These 25 students are in the final semester of the pathway to teaching. As a part of the experiences offered in this pathway, these seniors spent a day at the Professional Development and Technology Center learning about how coursework is developed. The day ended with a panel discussion that brought them face-to-face with 200 years of experience in education. Building principals, assistant superintendents and Superintendent Dr. Bernie DuBray shared guidance and advice for the road ahead. And each of the panelists took the time to point out to the high school students that, if you get into the college coursework and discover teaching isn't for you, that’s OK. “If you continue to pursue this through college, my advice to you would be to get certification in a couple of areas that interest you. That makes you as valuable as you can be.” DuBray told the students, adding that he is certified in English, History and Biology. Jen Waters, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, echoed DuBray’s sentiment. “Take as much as you can from every course you can take,” she told them. “Read outside your coursework. Ask a lot of questions. Get as many experiences as you can get. Prepare well. Take summer jobs that have you working with kids.” Students had a chance to ask the panel questions and UMSL was on hand to provide information about the dual credit classes available through the pathway to teaching. (Similar arrangements are also in place with Lindenwood.) “I couldn’t have picked a better profession,” DuBray said. “And you couldn’t either. And there hasn’t been a better time to do it.” Learn more about career pathways, and all of our high school offerings, in the Fort Zumwalt Course Description Guide: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1wSYfHbHo6__xI0ryhZ_70EQltPLDMN6IJhBS9uLa4YY/edit
