Weekly Update


New Travel Program

As I'm sure you've seen we are transitioning to a new travel company. This will probably only effect you if you book a hotel or rent a car. They have to be booked through the new company. To be honest I haven't looked at it yet because I don't use it much, but if you have questions let me know and I'll see if I can help you.

Starting in December we are supposed to submit our expenses the new way. I'm confused too so we can work through it together. We should be getting our user names and other info Monday I believe. As I figure things out I will keep you updated. I also read that we are supposed to bring our expenses with us to PD. I'm confused about this because I usually expense my dinner on the way home but maybe now we aren't allowed? I have to ask about this as well.

I sent out a google survey with questions for my students and so far I've received about 19 responses. This helped me immensely! I'll paste the link below so you can see the form.


Remember, we are supposed to have personal contact with each of our homeroom students at least once per quarter for the ILPs this year. The welcome call counts as one, so we need one more for quarter 2 - quarter 4. Any time you speak with a student, have a small group or one on one session you can make a note of it with the ILP template in TVS notes. We are going to send out a kmail to each student with a screenshot of their progress report and ask a question such as "what can you do to bring up your grade in _______?" and make a note of it. Even if they don't respond it will still count. If you think of any other ideas please share them with me!

QUARTER 1: September 8 - November 6

QUARTER 2: November 9 - January 22

QUARTER 3: January 26 - March 25

QUARTER 4: April 4 - June 13


Are you keeping up with the training? Someone told me we are supposed to finish the TLAC training before break. I couldn't find the email or information about that but I did it anyway just in case. In my training it says that it's due in May, but I figured I'd just get it out of the way. I only completed the required training,one of the sessions is a live session so you might want to sign up soon.


Sorry there is a lot of confusion on my part this week. I'll keep you posted as I learn about everything that I didn't have info about. I hope you have a great weekend!
