SSS Department Team Building

A weekly Google Slides (Google version of PowerPoint) will have our weekly Ungame question. All you need to do is add a text box to the presentation and answer the question. Take a look at the picture next to this text for more instructions.

When people find out what you do, what do they ask?

Answer the question by adding a text box on the slide. Be sure to add your name to the answer.

Text Messaging Procedures

SSS Dept. staff have the option to text some families. Review this PowerPoint PRIOR to using text messaging.

Important Reminder: TVS account changes

Fill out this survey (bookmark it for future use) for TVS phone, email, or in-state address changes.

Be sure to fill out the survey completely. To make the correct changes, Leigh Ann needs to know whose addresses and phone numbers need to be changed (e.g. which parent or both or is it the LC; whose phone # and is it the home or cell). She also needs to know the student first and last name along with their student ID# and if they have siblings.

Start of School Year:

High school grad plans

FYI: after much discussion, we will not be using the K12 Grad Plan Tool. PowerSchool, the program where we keep official transcripts, has a Grad Plan Tool option that we will be using so as not to duplicate work. At this point, Kristi Korfanta-Harris, as part of her new role, is getting trained on this process and will set up training for our staff.

More to come.
