The North Dakota Department of Instruction (DPI) is asking for all interested people to provide input on the new proposed guidelines for the professional evaluations of teachers and principals.
After several districts across the state failed to meet the goals of the No Child Left Behind Act, the state applied for a waiver from the act.
Submitting the waiver means the state must have established uniform guidelines for the evaluations. A DPI advisory committee worked from October, 2011, to July to develop the proposed guidelines.
I begin this prose in quite a conundrum.
Trying to find peace but havenât yet found some.
I begin every morning alive with the news.
CNN, FOX âthey give me the blues.
Iâm just the blonde, living on the prairie-
But tootâin my own horn (which is really quite scary!)
Iâm a woman with hormones and I have a gun.
Bring me a militant and Iâll get âer done.
My posse is housewives â women of strength.
Proverbs 31 proves theyâd earn âGeneralâ as ranks.
Each and every one of them is as patriotic as me.
So we wonder how dumb our elected can be.
Robert Odegaard of Kindred partially completed a practice barrel roll 5:55 p.m. Sept. 7 before the roll slowed and ultimately stopped just prior to the pilotâs fatal crash at the Barnes County Municipal Airport, the National Transportation Safety Board has determined.
According to the preliminary report released Sept. 21, a witness reported that the practice routine proceeded normally.
Entering Thursday's match with Kindred, the Maple Valley High School volleyball team knew one of the Vikings' biggest threats was going to be Kellie Schmit.
"She's a very good player," Maple Valley coach Jessica Theurer said. "We just had to do our best to attack so they couldn't set her up."
It was a strategy that worked at times, but wasn't quite as potent as the Raiders hoped in their 25-15, 25-21, 25-13 loss to Kindred.
