FAS Work Day Expectations
From Executive Directors
As you plan for your FAS days this year, please note that it is an expectation that staff will still work their required number of hours, per their job description, on both Thursday, October 27th and Friday, February 10, 2017. For example, teachers will work an eight hour day on each date.
In consideration of the needs of your families, you may identify the need to have evening opportunities and therefore we encourage you to consider using your available evenings that you can require teachers to stay late.
If you have additional questions, please contact your Executive Director.

Mandatory SILK Training for Secondary Attendance Clerks on Wednesday, October 5th in room 268.
From Kristen Scott
The following information was emailed to your ESL staff:
I wanted to update all of you concerning information I learned today in the monthly ESOL webinar put on by the state.
Cut scores and performance categories were approved by the ELPA21 Consortium and sent to Questar yesterday. Questar now has to put that information into all of the testing data on individual students; once that is done the data will be sent to CETE. Once CETE has all of the information uploaded and configured the data will be released to KSDE. So what that all means now is that it might be November until we get the results.
Please remember that for students who were with us and already had an ILP, we are continuing with that ILP. You are creating new ILPs for any new student into our system.
If I am notified that this may change I will let you all know. Until then if you have any questions please let me know.
