Volume 9: Adapting ACP to a New Environment

Since last March, we have all faced new challenges that have required us to adapt. We interact differently. We conduct business differently. We teach and learn differently. Throughout all of these changes, there have been many bright spots and growth that has occurred.

In volume 9 we will share updates and resources that can be useful in fulfilling our shared ACP obligation to our students. If you find something particularly useful, be sure to bookmark it or make a note so that you can come back to it again and again.

We refuse to allow a global pandemic to stop us from preparing our students to successfully take the next step in their self-defined career pathway!

Xello Continues to Evolve

Big picture

Last year at this time, Career Cruising made the switch to Xello. While the two platforms serve the same purpose, Xello has a more modern and user-friendly appearance with a boatload of new bells and whistles.

For students to access Xello, they just need to go under the SASD bookmarks tab at the top of their browser and click Xello. It is a single sign on format so students will use the same username and password as they use to log in to their SASD Google account.

In forthcoming newsletters, we'll be sharing new updates to Xello as they become available.
