2019 Vanguard Intent and Satisfaction Survey

It's time for us to check in and find out your plans for next year. We need all members to take this 5 minute (or less) survey to let us know if you will be returning to FCS and participating in Vanguard next year. This information is critical for managing our membership and iPad inventory. We need all members to complete the survey by close of business on Monday, May 13th.

School Lead Applications

School Lead Applications for the 2019-20 school year are open!

Responsibilities include:

  • Serve as bridge between Vanguard leadership and your school team.

  • Attending monthly school lead calls (Thursday evenings before Twitter chats).

  • Holding monthly school Vanguard Team meetings, where you share information from your school lead call.

  • Participate in the work of one of our committees (events, communication, XP, new members, and possibly others).

  • A time commitment above and beyond your normal school duties and Vanguard responsibilities.

This is an excellent opportunity to grow in your role as a Vanguardian and contribute more to the team's mission and vision. We will be looking to this group of individuals first when we have any openings on the leadership team.
