New SubFinder - Action Required
DeKalb County School District will soon transition to Aesop, a substitute software management system to assist with increasing our fill rates for vacant positions and employee absences. The Subfinder System will no longer be utilized after December 18, 2015.
In an effort to prepare for this transition in January 2016, we are asking that all teachers take time to view the training course link below and the attachment. Please contact the Division of Human Resources by emailing email@example.com if you need additional assistance.

SLO Virtual Inservice - Action Required
Note: This is for classroom teachers only.
SLO Online Inservice
Beginning in December, the district will be using itsLearning as the platform to administer SLOs. All teachers will be completing their SLOs in itsLearning in January - only teachers involved in November's Pilot training will administer the SLO post-assessment in December (note: non-piloting teachers will use IDMS/Schoolnet).
While we are trying to value your time, especially during EOC season, you are expected to complete all tasks by Friday, December 11. Note: If you completed these tasks during the SLO Pilot, you are good to go and will only need to complete step 4.
Here are the tasks you will need to complete:
1. Complete the online training modules

- Your username is your Active Directory login or enumber (e.g. e12346578).
- Your default password is Dekalb01.
- You'll be prompted to change the password at login.
2. Watch the SLO Inservice video (new link that doesn't require request for access), go online and keep pace with the training session as they review who to administer the sample pre-assessment.
3. The attached documents (see 12/4 email) will provide for additional tips on facilitating a successful SLO assessment administration and screenshots.
4. Sign off on completion (Main Office)
Please contact me with any questions. Thank you.
Paper - Please Be Thoughtful in Your Usage
Please be thoughtful in your usage of paper as we bring this semester to a close. Maybe that 20 page-review packet could be just as effective a tool reduced to a fraction of the pages. Maybe recycling paper would enable students to learn the material and save a tree.
Thank you in advance (the copy machines thank you too).
