If you have other pictures of the SSS Dept. from the start of the school year, and/or during events, send them to Alex for roadmap inclusion.

Thank you to the FASTeam for getting me (Alex) this beautiful hydrangea plant when I got back to work from that week off in September.

SSS Department Kudos!

If you have kudos to share about you or a colleague, send them to Alex.


An IDVA graduate reached out to Jennifer E. to request a transcript. In addition to the info needed, Jennifer also offered her scholarship information, too, prompting the following response: "... Especially thank you for linking me to the scholarship database, it's much appreciated."

Thank you, Jennifer E.!


Mary Dangerfield, from K12, sent the following message to Andrea H.: "I just wanted to say great job on your [graduation] plans lately. Your team is making great progress!"

Awesome work, Counselors and Advisors!


Congrats to Lisa, Tree, and Bev for being invited to serve on the Faculty Advisory Council!

Woot woot, Lisa, Tree, and Bev!

Congrats Jessica!

K12 recently launched a leadership training program for aspiring administrators. In this very first cohort, Jessica was one of a handful of awesome staff from across the K12 network selected to participate in the Grow Emerging Leader program in the FAST Administrator development track.

The selection consisted of a rigorous process, including an initial nomination, with the final selection made by our K12 Regional Vice President. Jessica's years of service at IDVA, dedication to growth, and overall awesomeness was vital to her selection.

Join me in congratulating Jessica in being selected for this training program!

Great job, Jess!

PS: Don't fret, neither Jessica's job or job responsibilities are changing. :)
