Administrator Update

Week of January 4

Happy New Year!!!

As most of us know, this semester will go by fast! I hope to make these updates short and sweet to provide you with critical information that will keep us all connected. The links at the bottom with regard to access and links to services will never change, so that you always know where to get these links.

Have a wonderful day with the kids. I am sure they will be sleepy!

Discipline Brief - Reminders

When requesting discretionary removals:
1. Ensure e-cst reflects all interventions
2. In the Admin comments, you indicate specifically what type of removal you are seeking (long-term or ALC).
3. Monitor email and cell (in most cases it is best to discuss and refer to manual).

To meet our 15% reduction in discretionary removals, we can only remove:
- 13 to long-term
- 11 to ALC

Professional Development/Training Updates

Edgenuity schedule will be sent soon. Look for emails and talk to your campus contacts.
