SSS Department Kudos!
If you have kudos to share about you or a colleague, send them to Alex.
Deslynn was able to communicate today with a student who hadn’t been checking emails. Des had only been connecting with the LC, but unable to talk to the student; so she set up a CC and the student attended. They were able to work out a creative weekly check-in plan that better fits the student’s abilities at this time. Des was very creative in making this plan and connection!
Great job, Deslynn!
Kudos go to Corrie who has been filling in for Cassidy. Jesse noted that Corrie has been helping with the graduation plan tool ensure accuracy all while promoting effectiveness!
Great job FASTeam for piloting the group check-in process! Combined, 62% of all FAST students attended this first check-in!
Andrea Hampton wanted to thank Loretta. Loretta was working with a student from out of state and did some research on how the student could get their shot records.
From Jenny about Kelly regarding her absentee prevention work: "You are also doing a fabulous job of calling and following up with teachers and for that, THANK YOU!"
Woot Woot, Kelly!
A message sent to Jesse from a student: "YAY! I want to thank you guys so much for doing everything possible to help me graduate with my class. You guys are absolutely amazing, I appreciate everything you've done."
Keep up the inspiring work, Jesse!
SSS Department Trivia
If you completed this before, it didn't record. Please try again.
Please share something about you that your colleagues may not know and that you would feel comfortable with them knowing. We will include this as a question in our weekly roadmap sometime this school year.
Week 2 Trivia Results!
WHO AM I?
"I competed in a pageant, and my talent was reenacting the Napoleon Dynamite dance."
It is Alex Zamora. Circa 2005, I participated in a fundraising pageant event called Mr. CASAnova. It was a fundraiser, put on by a College of Idaho sorority for the local Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program.
No one got this correct!

Departmental & School Updates
Time Tracking Task - Action Required
As introduced in our last roadmap, I am asking you to track your daily time for 1 week: Monday, September 17 - Friday, September 21. You will use the attached excel file (found below) for tracking. Feel free to customize it to suit your needs so long as the main details remain.
Here is the goal: track as you go. I want you to have an accurate reflection of your time. Include personal tasks that pop up (e.g. phone calls from family, swapping your laundry). I am not requiring you to share this part of the process with me (but if you want to process it with me, you can share it).
Although you are not going to show me your completed tracking document, the next step - priority ranking - will be sent to me, and you'll need an accurate week's worth of info for that step, which we'll address in next week's roadmap.
If you need a reminder, on what we are trying to do, take a look at the infographic again.

Professional Learning Communities
As your PLC has data to review, send info to Alex to post for the group.
An ongoing process in which educators work collaboratively in recurring cycles of collective inquiry to achieve better results for the students they serve.
PLC’s operate under the assumption that the key to improving learning for students is continuous, job-embedded learning for educators.
Four questions to guide PLC’s
- What do we expect students to learn?
- How do we know they are learning it?
- How do we respond when they do not learn it?
- How do you respond when they have already learned it?
