Rock Stars: August 14

You Rock

Janet VanZant and Cindy Kim, both members of the IT team, did a fantastic job with setting up the computers for the Skype interviews. They did a great job of managing technology, time schedules and multiple speakers. 

Joan Morey is an Assistant Principal at Ranch View Middle School. She did a “superb” job of welcoming students to the new year and kicking off the school year.

Sue Thompson is a lead on the SchoolMessenger implementation to schools. Sue has worked tirelessly at ensuring attendance staff at every school has been fully trained. She has coordinated a large amount of manual effort to provide many schools custom schedules for sending attendance calls at their convenience, as compared to being locked down to one standard scheduled attendance call batch. Leading up to the start of the school year this week, Sue ensured our vendor delivered on all project requirements in order for critical attendance calls to be performed starting Monday. In addition, Sue has handled exception requests to the process from many schools with patience and an phenomenal "can-do" attitude without hesitation. Our schools, and especially our attendance clerks, are incredibly fortunate to have Sue at the helm of making sure parents receive absence notification promptly and accurately.

When it comes to mental health services, communities traditionally focus on supporting kids as needs arise. This work is crucial for the safety of our students. Equally important, though, is prevention-based programming that can help, early on, prevent the social-emotional challenges our kids may be experiencing from escalating.
