ESU 4 Special Education - January 4, 2011

Monday Memo
January 4, 2011

Happy New Year!!!
May all your resolutions be 'do-able!'
Go for it
Run toward it
Dive in head first
Live life with no regrets
Put your heart out there
...Don't be scared you might get hurt, but its all worth it in the end...

Courageously leading a dynamic revolution in Education! 
Are you willing to courageously lead the revolution???


Mileage Reimbursement.... As of January 1st, the IRS allowable rate for mileage reimbursement will change to $.51 per mile. Please note as you submit your December/January reimbursement.

Upcoming Staff Development...
 - ASD Cadre, Friday, January 21st... 1:00 - 3:30 p.m. @ ESU 4.  Register via the on-line registration website!
 - Writing Measurable Goals... WEBINAR Series, Session #1! Monday, January 24, 2011 (3:45 - 5:00 p.m.) All ESU 4 Certified staff need to register and participate in this webinar series... No travel involved. Just a computer! Everyone who participates will receive a copy of "Writing Mearuable IEP Goals and Objectives" by Barbara Bateman/Cynthia Herr. Register via the on-line registration website.

Google Account information... update the office with your google account information so that we can share forms and documents. I am still missing a few names/addresses. Here's the address; cut and paste this link in your web browser. (You should have it in your email as well!) 

Self Evaluations/Goals-action plans/Individual Development Plans... I am still missing self-evaluations and goals/development plans from Kathy N. 

LESSON REFLECTIONS were due November 19th!!!... I'm still missing some of these. Please get them in soon!!

Requests for Professional Development/Workshops...Send in a leave request WITH your original request to attend the training; sometimes we get your registration information but I really need that leave sheet. (This might help us in being more accurate and timely with leave forms as well.)

According to the New York Times, there is no scientific research that proves that life is serious.
So... Lighten up!!! 
LEAVE FORMS... Please, please, please submit leave forms as soon as you know about your leave! We are having trouble with getting all the forms we need, when we need. Also, if you are submitting a leave form so that you may attend a meeting/workshop, please attach a copy of the workshop flyer with the leave request. That will allow us to make sure we've got you registered! I don't want to be repetitive here (but I will!), your leave requests really need to match your professional goals. If I don't have your goals, I can't okay leave requests! Turn them in by the 15th of each month!!

GO Huskers!!!
Isn't it a great day to be a Husker fan????
The correct answer is... ALWAYS!!!

Never stop playing the game! (Were we even there? Should've kept playing!)
