Each SLO Campus Contact will earn a $500 stipend at the end of the school year for their successful service in this role. The characteristics and responsibilities of the SLO Campus Contact include:

  • Attending required face-to-face summer training
  • Attending online meetings throughout the year
  • Serving in a campus leadership role
  • Being comfortable with technology
  • facilitating and monitoring the completion of the SLP process
  • Directing teachers to the appropriate SLO resources
