SEEN AROUND THE DISTRICT

New Risk Manager and AEDs

Risk Management was recently shifted from the Admin Services "umbrella" to Business Services. Because of this, the District's new Risk Manager is now our CBO Steven Rollins.


Steven wasted no time installing Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) at all sites. These devices are safe and easy to use, to deliver a therapeutic electric shock to the heart as treatment for a victim in sudden cardiac arrest. Staff members were trained on August 2. The AEDs are placed in the following locations:


CVS: Main Office inside Health Office

DO: Lobby Hallway toward Kitchen

GYS: PE Equipment storage room and Main Office inside Health Office

MVS: Main Office inside Health Office

RVS: Main Office outside of Health Office

New Teacher Orientation

In partnership with AMVT, Personnel & Administrative Services hosted a New Teacher Orientation on July 29th to welcome 13 new teachers to the District! The purpose of this orientation was primarily to introduce them to our District Office team and site administration, but AMVT also provided lunch and teachers were able to spend time in their new classrooms.

Summer Facility Projects

Over the summer, Personnel & Administrative Services oversaw a variety of facility projects. The goals of all facility projects are to enhance safety, create environments conducive to learning, emphasize aesthetics & function, and/or increase energy efficiency.


This summer's projects included classroom carpet at all sites, exterior lighting & roof replacements at GYS, bathroom sinks & flooring at the DO, and an office remodel at MVS.
