Now that we have a great new feature on our website that allows members to see all questions posted and even reply directly from your email, we have had some members inquire as to how to control the many emails coming across your desk!
Step by step, here's how to control the flow of emails - first in text, step by step, then below that, graphic images of how your screen will look and what you'll see!
1. Log in to the website with your username and password.
2. On the next screen you are sent to, scroll down until you see on the RIGHT, your username at the top of one of those boxes. That is your "usermenu".
3. In the usermenu, click on MY GROUPS.
There will be a region 7 meeting on Wednesday, November 12 at the LaCantina restaurant in Paw Paw. A social will begin @ 5:00 with dinner @ 6:00. Jim Ballard will be at the meeting to answer any questions we may have. Please RSVP to me as soon as possible: firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you there.
Last week (September 11 -12) I was part of the Michigan Team that attended the American Diploma Project Network – Annual State Leadership Team Meeting. Thirty-Six states have now signed on with the ADP project. Each of the states agreed to develop academic standards that enable K-12 graduating seniors to be college ready and workforce ready. Everyone in the room agreed that to have a job that enables the person to earn an income that can sustain a family requires training past high school.
Our high school is in the first year of a new Student I.D. Policy. The new policy mandates that all students wear their School I.D. around the neck on a school provided lanyard. The students are doing a fantastic job of following this policy, though there are always a few! Are there any schools out there that have created a similar policy with successful consequences (for students not following the policy) attached? Any ideas would be appreciated.

Hope you've listened to one or more of our Back to School podcasts.
I'm feeling that we've done a real service for our members with them. I just finished listening to the one we did with Sally Vaughn, Chief Academic Office/Association Supt. for MDE. Yes, I wish I was a better interviewer, but the "what's the one thing you want a principal to know" questions give great direction to you as a school administrator.
