You may also find the slides from the SBLC portion of last week's VPD HERE.


Here is a list of FAST students. There are some students waiting to be assigned right now that may not show up on this spreadsheet.

Don't forget about our collaboration times on Tuesdays at 8:30 and Thursdays at 1:00. If you don't see an invitation in your CC schedule, please let Liz know.

Remember, FAST is for engagement, not academic problems. If students are not attending small groups, communicating, logging in, or completing assignments, please refer them to FAST. Our goal is to have them re-engaged, i.e. logging in, completing work, communicating, attending small groups, etc. They may not have all passing grades when they are released from FAST. Also, please continue to reach out and work with the students you have referred to FAST.

Thank you for all you do!
