    We have a new team member on our grade level this year. She has been teaching for 24 years and has been in the district for several years, but she is brand new to our school. She doesn't need a typical mentor, but I would like to make sure I give her all the info she needs for our school. What suggestions do you have for things I need to be sure to share with her? I gave her a tour of the school and brainstormed the following to share:

    copies - limits, code, where to get paper
    jean day
    awards day, if it falls on a Friday - no jeans
    office supplies
    bathroom procedures
    recess procedures
    duty
    related arts

    :thanks:

    Who is in charge (the P or the Secretary)
    How to find the audio video equipment
    Custodian 101, or How to get your garbage emptied

    Be sure you let her know where to find the District's Policy Manuel in case she ever has any problems. She can refer to this for a lot of unanswered questions.
