Discipline Brief - Why doesn't she just click the approval?!?!?!?!?!

You all have been busy; Especially on Fridays. If I don't click an approval quickly it is because there are questions or it was buried in email. (Sorry, McCallum! This latter reason happens to you the most often. I will pay closer attention!) Usually, questions revolve around appropriate coding. I will always read your referrals to verify coding. Thanks for all you do.

FYI: New Title IX Coordinator is Ylise Janssen.

SAT and ACT Reminder

NEXT SAT IS FEB 22, But in order to get accommodations, they cannot take it until March 5, and accommodations must be submitted January 15.

ACT requires a little more research. Here is the link.

Shout-Out: rateGenius Loans, A+, and CV Linens

Thank you rateGenius and A+ for your generous donation to our High School Showcase!

All the black linens you saw at the Showcase were purchased at CV Linens. They are located in Pflugerville and are super affordable. I've ordered a couple of times with them and never been disappointed. I ordered online and picked up next day! Keep them in mind for next order!

Campus Corner

By far a favorite at the High School Showcase! Go Clifton!
