Tips for a Cyber Safe Vacation

Stronger Passwords

Long Passwords Make Strong Passwords

Schools districts are data-rich targets for cybercriminals. Both employee and student data are at risk of being stolen. Weak passwords are a gateway to breaches that can affect more than just the targeted users.  The key to password strength is to make them long. The technology department is implementing a minimum of 12 characters password length, that will be required at your next password expiration, (along with the requirement of using three of the following conditions; an upper case, a lower case, a number, or a special character).  Using a passphrase-- -a short sentence or random words will help you create a secure password.  For example, “Time to read books!” becomes “Time2readbooks!”.  Start thinking of your passphrase now and be prepared to create a longer and more secure password. You can test your password strength at https://howsecureismypassword.net/

Have You Met Your D91 PD Obligations?

Professional development
Summer changes to the 2018-19 calendar impacted teacher contracts. To end school on May 31, we lost instructional hours and 4 contract days -- June 3,4,5 and 6. To make up some of that instructional time, we converted the Oct. 5 and Jan. 21 PD Days into instructional days, but that means some teachers will need to make up those PD Days. Here's a guide to ensure you're meeting those contract obligations.

Policy Review For Employees

What Every Employee Should Know

Please make time to complete this annual policy review, which provides employees with up-to-date information about district policies and procedures. This presentation reinforces our personal and professional responsibilities as we work to provide a nurturing learning environment for all students.

Holiday Pay and Leave Allocations Full-Time Classified Employees
