Teachers and Administration Prepare for School Year

This past week was a busy one for the entire staff of the Winn Parish school system. Preparing for the new school year to kick off meant lots of training, meetings, and classroom prep.

Mrs. Nancy Crain, Instructional Supervisor with the WPSB, states that the state legislature passed a law requiring all K-3 grade teachers and administrators to take a Foundations of Reading class. “It is a lengthy amount of work that they have to do and Winn Parish teachers were in a two-day training at Winnfield Primary School with a trainer who was hired by the school board to come in and teach the class. They will finish the class on their own time, as there are several more sessions that the teachers will need to do. They are required to take a test after each module. Once the training is done, they will receive a certificate that the school board will collect to show that they have met the requirements of the law.”
