SCOE Style Guide

Date: 01/09/2019
Author: Stacie

The administration office has created a style guide to encapsulate SCOE branding, naming conventions, and other style points. It's available here. This guide puts on paper the conventions we've had for years. Until this time, they were never available all in one place.  

The guide is also available at the "content creators" internal web page. To access that page, go to this link: https://www.scoe.org/pub/htdocs/content.html. The password is content. Other useful resources are there as well.

Announcement RE: Paycheck on 12/28

Date: 12/03/2018
Author: Stacie

Due to the fact that the ESS department has been deemed "closed" December 24-January 4, all paper paychecks and ACH paper copies will be mailed out on the December pay date of 12/28/18.
 
If you would prefer to pick up your paper paycheck or ACH paper copy in person the morning of the pay date, you must go to Business Services before 10am on the pay date. All remaining paper paychecks and ACH paper copies will be put in the mail that day at 10am.
 
There is no change or action needed for those who typically receive direct deposit and the emailed ACH copy.


Booking Conference Rooms Through EMS While Offsite

Date: 11/28/2018
Author: Stacie

Those of you who have tried to book SCOE conference rooms through the EMS booking website while not onsite at SCOE may have experienced issues accessing EMS. We recently learned that this can be resolved by using the secure web address for EMS when offsite, as follows:

https://ems.scoe.org

The https:// has to be part of the address

Please try this out to make sure it works. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Stacie. 


ESS Holiday Fun

Date: 11/27/2018
Author: Stacie

There are some fun ESS activities planned as the holiday season approaches!

    • Our department Holiday Tree will be going up on Monday 12/3 (Thanks, Belinda!!). Feel free to bring in an ornament/trinket to hang on the tree. It can be something you made or of sentimental value, an ornament that has been passed on to you, or one you're just trying to get rid of. Maybe get a little creative and make something in the Design Lab?
    • Belinda also has more holiday fun planned for us: On Monday there will be an adorable Elf named Blizzard hiding in our department. You will have until Dec 13th to try and find him. Blizzard is approx. 19 inches long and big enough to sit on a mantle. The first person who finds him will win a $25.00 gift card to Bella Rosa Coffee!!!
