School is starting again -- already! We are looking forward to visiting your programs again this year.
The SDE has opened the Alternative Education Plan page, so you can update your information there -- we use the plans to get basic information on your program before we come to visit. You can access the plan page through your district's Single Sign-On at the SDE website.
Jennifer Wilkinson (the SDE Alternative Education Director, in case you are new to Oklahoma Alt Ed this year), will be sending out information about regional meetings to be held in September. We will be working with Jennifer to bring you information at the meetings about the program evaluation rubric and the end-of-year reporting form.
We have tweaked the program evaluation rubric a bit to make it more clear; we will be talking about those changes at the regional meetings. We made only one change to the end-of-year reporting form, but we will go over the entire form (as we will have people who are new to Alt Ed at the meetings) and answer any questions you have about either form.
Thank you for being there for some of Oklahoma's most interesting and creative students. We know that working in Alternative Education can be tough and frustrating while -- at the same time -- being one of the most rewarding jobs around. We are here to provide you with support; feel free to contact your field coordinator by telephone or email. If you don't know your OTAC field coordinator, call Kelsey at 800.687.5730.
