Planned PL in 2023-2024:
Physics District Team
This team of GUHSD Physics teachers will meet regularly to collaborate, share resources, and discuss ways to improve instruction. There will be two pullout days and monthly after school meetings during the school year. Register here for the first pullout on Sep 5th, 2023 and other dates.
Earth & Space Science
We'll be kicking off the school year with a Climate Champions Design Summit from the San Diego Science Project, on Sep 12-13, 2023. See the details here. We hope to continue the district-wide teacher collaboration with pullout days later in the school year, as well.
Positive Prevention Plus (Biology)
Heads up Biology teachers, we have purchased new curriculum binders (2021 edition) for the Positive Prevention Plus unit. These have all been distributed to department chairs at school sites. We will also be holding training for PPP and the California Healthy Youth Act.
