A WORD FROM PETE..........

-MCA monitors don't forget, you must attend one of the four trainings before we begin to test. First opportunity is Monday March 4 afterschool, you should have 4 invites on your calendar to choose from

- Non-MCA monitors that work at Jackson make sure you have watched the non-disclosure video that gets you in compliance with state rules. Any questions give me a call x5811 or email.
