Communications Suggestions?

Do you have children who attend school in another district? Or perhaps a spouse or child who works in another district? What kinds of communication do you receive or see? Would any of it be beneficial for us to start doing in Belton? We're always looking for ways to improve what we do, target the right audiences, and reach them where they are.
I've already had a few great suggestions for this -- keep it coming!

Onsite Health Screenings

You can sign up for one of the onsite health screenings by logging into your A Healthier You (AHY) portal at, or by calling 816-395-2121. If you need to change or cancel your appointment, you can do so from, or calling A Healthier You customer service at 816-395-2121.

If I am pregnant, do I need to participate?

No. If you are pregnant you do not have to participate in the health screening for this year. However, to avoid the $20 per month premium charge, you must still complete the Health Risk Appraisal (HRA) online questionnaire by March 31 using your health status information to the best of your knowledge prior to pregnancy. Please contact Abby Carter (before March 31) at to be included on this list if you will not participate for this reason.

Please refer to the health screening materials uploaded onto the wellness site for more information.

Staff Spotlight: Teresa Stocking

Teresa is Lisa Cummings' (Assistant Superintendent Human Resources) secretary, along with her "suitemate" Donna Talley. This is her 14th year in the district. She can be contacted via email or phone (489-7001). Did you know her hours are 6:30(ish) - 2:30? She's the one at CO you can reach before school starts if you need assistance!

Her responsibilities include:

AESOP -- login issues, substitute assignments

FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act)

Arranging Teacher Candidate assignments

Teacher Certification

Substitute Training

Leave balance -- note, she manages staff balances in AESOP only. She recommends you check it often to ensure it's accurate and matches what you see in SISFin (where pay stubs can be found)

12 - Month Employees Paid Holiday Notice

Per Board Policy GDBDA, all 12 - month employees will have paid holidays on Friday March 25th and Monday March 28th.

Shoe Sensation Opening -- Coupon Coming!

A coupon will be coming to you soon (being sent to secretaries) for 20% off your purchase at Shoe Sensation, a new store opening March 10th. Their soft opening is March 3rd, should you want to get a peek at what they have. I met with them today -- they only come to towns about the size of Belton, carry all name brand shoes, socks, and shoe accessories. They look forward to building a relationship with us -- they seem to want to do what they can to support the school district!
Shoe Sensation will be located next to PetSmart and JoAnn Fabrics.
