Important Links

FAST Tracker - Keep this up to date with notes regarding your assigned families. No family should have more than 7 days without an update at any given time.


Strong Start Site - Link to share with families who are newer or even in referral for How-To help.


Students First - See the calendar for PLC, NPD, etc. meetings. Files for help on national school shared documents within your specific roles.


K12 Time Off Request - Notify your Lead prior to submission. If you are hourly make sure your timesheet is filled out accurately with time off. Flexing 2 hours is okay as long as you make that time up within the same week. Notify your Lead if you need to do this.


HR Portal - Provides a wealth of important information on your employment here with K12. Also, where your annual evaluations take place.


TXVA Staff Directory - Use chain of command discretion when reaching out to staff. If it is something I and/or Ms. Perry need to know inform us first and we will provide how to respond. For referrals please DO make contact with teachers, no hesitation there.


RES Staff Directory - For the most part Mindy is the main person who would contact case workers as she is the assigned SPED FASL.


Autdialer - This should be used sparingly! Only use it to remind families of important meetings. Use your actual voice when sending a call. Include a way for them to return contact you.


Outing Sign Up - Sign up for all 7 Virtual Outings. You will not plan them, you will attend them and help during the Outing times.


Email Help - This is where you will submit your Email tickets for issues with your txva.org account. Families who need Email help will call Tech Support.


TXVA Electives - Website for 3-8 electives information. Share with families.
