I wanted to take a few moments and give you some updates regarding Advanced Opportunities before you head out for your Christmas break.
Fall Data has been Processed: Our office has finished processing the data for the Fall term. Please take a moment to view the “Courses Awaiting SDE submission” report for any items that have been sent back for review. Any courses that we’ve sent back are in the status “School level received.” You can click on the course name and view comments that explain why the course or exam was sent back.
Payments: We have sent payment requests to our finance department. Districts and colleges should see funds hit their accounts, or a check within the next week or so. Please make sure your business office is apprised of the funds, and what they apply toward. All receipts are available in the “Billing Statements” reports in the portal. When clicking on the arrow, you will find a detailed breakdown of all payments.
Spring Request Window: The window for entering spring funding requests will be January 8 through February 23th. If for some reason you’d like to adjust your data entry window to open sooner, please contact me directly.
Professional Development: Our team is constantly seeking to bring relevant and meaningful professional development opportunities to you in order to assist you in your work with students. Please take one minute to fill out this survey that will better inform our efforts this coming spring.
Symposium Events: This year our team will be hosting the Student Readiness Symposiums similar to last year. These will be day-long training events focused on best-practices around advising and College/Career Readiness. Please mark your calendars and save the dates for your region.
