Fresh Start to a New School Year


Superintendent of Schools Eva Demyen welcomed the district’s newest teachers with a comprehensive orientation program. In order to fully integrate the faculty into the classrooms and community, teachers spent three days getting to know one another and their schools.

In preparation for the first day of school, Deer Park administrators coached new teachers on how to design an effective lesson plan. Meeting a variety of district administrators and directors who they will interact and work with on a regular basis, new teachers learned about district practices, policies, and protocols, and their own roles. 

New teachers received an introduction to the district’s Student Information System - Infinite Campus. Through the professional development program PRIME, they were connected with experienced colleagues to establish mentoring relationships and promote district camaraderie.
