  • HELP NEEDED! Please encourage your Title I/Act 89 families to attend the Parent Engagement Night on May 23rd. Currently, only a few families have signed up for the event.

  • If you have your Form A post-assessment completed, please email it to Todd ASAP. At your EOY meeting, please be prepared to discuss components where you scored yourself "Distinguished" on the post-assessment section. Feel free to share evidence/examples as well.

  • If applicable, please be prepared to share your SLO data at your end-of-year final evaluation meeting. We will use this data to score the success of your SLO.


A few staff members are beginning to see their IU email/account password expire. When this happens, the account is unreachable and locked until you reset the password. A Password Portal link was sent out earlier this year asking that each employee enrolls. That way you are not locked out of your account should your password expire before you are able to change it. The Password Portal link is:

If you signed up, you should have access to the account with your current password. If you did not sign up, you will receive an error message stating your account has not been configured. Please check to see if you signed up. If you did not, please let Christine know. With the end of the year approaching, many passwords are set to expire.
