Local Measures Writing

Update from the District Office:  The end-of-the-year writing benchmark for Local Measures will be in the genre of argument (Common Core Writing Standard).  The Benchmark Sessions will be provided each quarter and you’ll need to send a representative from every grade level to these sessions.  They will be facilitated by Bonnie McGrath.  The schedule is attached.  Please let me know who is representing each grade level.
