School Profile Sheets
- ES Profile Template
- JHS Profile Template
- SHS Profile Template
Made by the Kumamoto PAs, these forms are for outgoing JETs to fill out to give their successor an overview of each of school, class, and teaching situation. Even if your successor will not take over your schools, you can give this sheet to your BOE to give to whomever will teach at your school next.
If you choose not to use the above materials, then please be sure to find some way to report your school and everyday life situation to your successor. Write it down for your successor because they may not be able to take it all in at once.
