We appreciate all of the referrals that you have created. Our goal is to work with at least 10% of LAVCA students. Here's where we are currently:

Sometimes, we do need a little more information on the FAST Tracker. Remember, Dana should be listed as the lead teacher for K-7, and Anthony should be listed as the lead teacher for 8-12.

Please make sure you list your team as Additional Reviewers when completing the referral, so they can see the referral as well.

Just failing courses is not reason enough for a student to be referred to FAST. When filling out the FASL reasons for referrals, please include the factors that are contributing to the student's failing grades. Are they not coming to required classes, not logging in, not communicating, not completing Study Island assignments, etc? Please include those reasons on the tracker. Also, is there pertinent information that the FAST team needs to know about the student? Please include that information in the notes as well. It helps the FASL/FRC/FEC/FCL have a better picture of the student and his/her needs and deficiencies.

There have been a lot of duplicate referrals on the tracker lately. Before you make a referral, please check the tracker, check TVS notes, ask your teammates, use TVA, and/or ask a FASL to see if a student has been referred to FAST already or not.

Some referrals are still not being submitted when they're created. Remember, in order for the referral to be visible for the leads to review, you must submit, not save, the referral.

Thank you for working with us. Each member of our FAST team wants to work to support you and help our students. We appreciate your collaboration and input.
