Monday Memo

Thoughts for the week...

Dear Unami,

It's April so that means PSSA! By now all teachers and educational assistants should have completed your PSSA on-line proctor training. This training will be good for both PSSA and Keystone Exams. If you have not, please take a few minutes to complete the training before Friday, April 8. Here is the direct link.

This is a friendly reminder that all educational assistants who may be involved with proctoring a PSSA will also need to complete the PSSA online training module for SY 15-16, prior to April 8th. This training will be good for both the PSSA and the Keystone Exams.

  • If you are already registered (from last year) and need to sign in, use the Sign In link at the top right hand corner of the screen.
  • If you have not registered on the site, you will need to register before you can access the training. Click on Registration at the top right-hand corner of your screen and follow the instructions. It will ask you for your email, a password, and to copy the captcha for security reasons.
  • The training and short test that follow should take no more than 45 mins. to complete.
  • You can complete sections of the training and go back to it at another time if you don’t have a full 45 mins. to spare.
  • You must take and pass the test with a score of 80% or above. If you do not pass the test the first time, you must take it again.
  • Please be sure to print out your certificate at the end and get a copy to Kathy Houpert (either digital or paper).

Educational assistants will also need to attend an in-person training session. Kathy and Marykate have two dates/times scheduled--Tuesday or Wednesday April 5th and 6th, 2:00-2:30pm or 2:30-3:00pm. If the training schedule requires you to stay beyond your regular time, I will approve the additional half-hour of pay.

Remember that our Unami United forums will be on this Monday, April 4th. Therefore, we will be on a Tuesday schedule. This will be a dry run of our PSSA schedule tips through our advisory time. 9th grade students will be writing their letters to their future selves.

John and I will be traveling to 7th/8th grade classes this week to review the PSSA protocols and expectations with students.

Have a great week,
