41 DPS Journey to the Digital Doors Principal Whenever I have the opportunity during the busy school day, I go into Schoolnet to review how teachers are using curriculum and instruction in their classroom, and how they assign students for intervention groups (SMART Goals). With teachers on Formal Evaluation, I ask them to teach me how they navigate their lesson plans and how they organize their small group instruction using the tool. - Khoa Nguyen, Principal Ellis Elementary

42 DPS Journey to the Digital Doors 6 th Grade Teacher By having access to class trends and specific student strengths and weaknesses, I can more accurately plan for the needs of my students and focus more on that content where my students are struggling. It also allows for more effective intervention grouping and planning so I can really target the students that need some more attention. – Tori Miller, Harrington Elementary
