I love forms. They make me feel so organized and accomplished. In our district, we must have written notes from parents when dealing with a student’s absence. But, in previous years I have been bombarded with all different shapes, sizes, and styles of notes. This is fine (for normal people) but it drive me insane that I have to keep up with napkins, post-its, and legal sized papers.
So, I created an interactive form. I plan to put this on my school blog, where I have my daily notes posted. That way the kids can type in the information, print the form and have Mom or Dad (or legal guardian) sign it. Then everything will be uniformed and can quickly & easily be filed. I also will print a paper copy of the form to hand out to the kids on the first day for when they can’t get to a computer.
We’ll see how it goes.
