This may or may not fall into the “can of worms” category. It depends on your school situation and school culture. One area that we often look at in our end of school meetings is particular student needs or hot spots. This is usually referring to students with learning difficulties who may need extra help or who are getting extra help–what worked this year and a plan for next year. It can include students with behavior issues, though in a more general way, and not as “hanging out the dirty laundry”. In our situation, most of the teachers are close enough and have taught enough of the students that we know the students well, so talking about these issues is with an attitude of caring for the student not one of condemnation.
