On November 16th, Katherine Thrash, Cole Elementary's numeracy coach, and Denise Brown, Cole's data coach, co-facilitated a collaborative inquiry session. Taking the teacher recommendations for the math BHAG from the Oct. 26th grade level meetings, the leadership team established a math BHAG for Cole Elementary. The outcome for this meeting was to share the math BHAG and have grade level teams develop action plans for achieving the math BHAG.
