See your Evaluating Principal by May 15th for Student Growth Goal Scoring

Please make arrangements with your evaluating principal to sit down and score your Student Growth Goal in CIITS and have a summative post conference if you are in your summative year. You may also add artifacts about Student Growth in CIITS-- bring hard copies of student performance data with you to the meeting and we can show you how to do this if necessary. These need to be completed by May 15th.

CIITS Password Change

In order to increase data security, KDE has requested a stronger set of password requirements for the CIITS platform (IMS and EDS). On May 13th, Pearson will be enabling a strong password feature that will require users to periodically change their password and adhere to a policy that will require certain character types and lengths.

After the feature is enabled, when a user (who has not changed their password in the last 120 days) logs into CIITS (https://ciits.kyschools.us) they will be prompted to change their password.

Success With Higher Standards

Southwestern High School will strive to graduate every student college/career ready and prepared for the 21st century.
