Last week we had one of the most memorable days of the year in LCISD…STAFF DEVELOPMENT DAY! The one day a year where every teacher gets to go out to lunch for an hour and not work cafeteria duty!

Oh yeah…and we all learned a lot of great stuff too!

Seriously though, the iCafe staff loves staff development days! It’s a time when we get to hang out with teachers from all over the district and teach them new ideas or tools that they can start using in their classrooms! I can’t really think of a better way to spend my day, actually!

A Change

One thing that has changed recently though, is something that you need to be aware of! Inside ASCEND, our staff development portal, an important change has been made. Before you can receive credit for a class, you have to submit a survey! It’s not really a big deal, and honestly, it’s your opportunity to let your voice be heard!

Didn’t like your session? Tell us about it in the survey!

Wish you could have spent more time practicing the new skill? Tell us about it in the survey!

Loved your presenter? Tell us about it in the survey!

How to access the surveys

Accessing the surveys in ASCEND is pretty easy. All you need to do is click on the “My Course Details” button on the main page and click on the “Take Survey” button for that section. Pretty easy, right? Still need a little more direction though? Well, check out this simple cheat sheet that will walk you through it! Of course, if you have any questions, feel free to enter it in the comments section below!
