Elementary CSA's

The number of scores entered into Infinite Campus for the Literacy Writing Posttest 15-16 (Grades 3-5) and the Writing End of Year (Grades 1-2) tests has been decreased. You will no longer enter the scores for the individual components (Conventions, Ideas, etc). Instead you will add up the points on each component and enter the total points. Enter the raw score for the math and literacy tests and not the percent. Please refer to the

Scoring Reference Guide

. Contact Cindy Slinger with questions.


It’s that time of year when you can update your benefits by changing health insurance plans, add or remove dependents, and enroll in the Medical Flex plan! All changes must be made using the Benefitfocus site which is located under the Staff Tab on the District website. Changes will be effective July 1, 2016. I would advise ALL employees to go to the Benefitfocus site and review your current benefits and covered dependents. This year, if you do NOT want to make any changes to your benefits or you do NOT want to enroll in the Medical Flex plan, you do not/ need to do anything further at this time. If you do access the Benefitfocus site to review your benefits between May 2 and May 31, you can use this as an EDU activity for the Healthy U Wellness Program.
