Doodle Bugs! Standard of the Week: 06/04/12

The SOTW for this week reminds team members of the importance of appropriately scheduling time off. It also reminds directors of the parameters to keep in mind when approving time off.

Specifically, we should keep the 3 C’s in mind – Consistency, Consideration and Conversation.

Each of these is explained, with a few examples, on the attached flyer but they can easily be summed up:

  • Consistency = Putting children first.
  • Consideration = Caring about cowkers.
  • Conversation = Talking to the director, to reach a mutually agreeable decision.

Directors, during your conversations with teachers, be sure to use consistency and consideration as your rationale – this will reinforce the reasons behind the policies!

The SOTW will be posted for parents to see, in the faculty lounge, and placed in each classroom’s mailslot. As always, thank you for your attention to these important doodle details!
