1. CIVIC ENGAGEMENT DAY IS FEBRUARY 14 AND 15, 2018
Washington's Civic Engagement Day is February 14 and 15 in Olympia. This is a day for CTE advisors and their students to reach out to policy makers to gain support of their programs. This can be done via email, letter, or in person. You will find a very informative webinar and some great resources/examples on TeachDECA.org no later than this Wednesday.
2. STATE CDC REMINDERS
SCDC Checklist: Print out this awesome checklist and keep it by your computer for the next few weeks! Check-off items on the list as you complete them!
Testing: Attached is a slide deck from Linda Andersen regarding online testing. The process will be very similar to area testing and all students regardless of area will be testing online for SCDC. IEP's will be honored, proctors cannot be advisors and must be registered with your SCDC registration, and make sure you enter correct emails for your proctors to ensure they receive their instructions! One password per day will be issued to access the testing portal.
Principles and PFL events: Just a reminder that Principles events are for 1st year competitors ONLY and are for those students that did not qualify for state in another event, but will gain from the experience. PFL is for students in their 2nd and higher year, but again, did not qualify for state in another event.
SMA (Senior Management Academy): SMA is for seniors that did not qualify for state in another event, but you feel deserve to attend SCDC in more of a leadership capacity. There is a simple application and no limit to the number of seniors that can attend. Deadline has been extended to Friday, January 26th.
3. STOCK MARKET GAME QUALIFIERS ANNOUNCED
Top 25 in the Stock Market Game for the Western Region have been announced. Read all about it here! Those that qualified in SMG have earned the right to attend ICDC! Congratulations!
4. EMERGING LEADER HONOR AWARD DEADLINE IS JANUARY 30, 2018
