Vanguard 2017-2018

With the start of a new year, we need to gather everyone's information again. If you have not filled it out, please do it now.

IMPORTANT - August Checklist

One piece of feedback we received last year was the need for more guidance during the year. We've created a checklist for August with due dates, important events, and tips.

Feel free to save a copy to your computer, download and print, or whatever you might need to do in order to stay on track!

GaETC 2017

As always, Vanguard will send all of our members to GaETC and provide substitutes. The dates are Wednesday, November 8-Friday, November 10.

Here are your next steps:

1. Discuss this with your principal. Let him/her know that the cost of your registration and substitute will be paid for by the Instructional Technology Department.

2. Secure a substitute for all of the days that your principal will allow you to miss.

3. Wait until you hear more from us regarding registration. All information will be shared as soon as it's available.
