kNOw HATE Toolkit
The kNOw HATE Toolkit for educators and youth service providers is a youth driven implementation model to address and promote the prevention of hate through education, awareness, and engagement. Hosted by OC Human Relations, this one-day workshop is available for free on two separate dates: March 30 or March 31. See this flier for more details. Our Admin office has asked that we share this information with educators - please spread the word.
New Password Reset Tool
SCOE has a new password reset server that is readily available to help users reset their passwords without contacting the IT helpdesk. This new tool will also send expiration notices to your email when your password is getting close to the 180-day expiration date. Learn more about this new tool and how to use it. Amanda Snook is also able to assist with any question you might have.
UPDATED DOCUMENT - CONFERENCE/TRAVEL CLAIM (NEW MILEAGE RATE)
Please use the new 2020 Conference/Travel Claim form in the Forms box on the left beginning with your January mileage. For mileage that occurred prior to January 1, please use the old 2019 Conference/Travel Claim form in the Forms box on the left.
Announcement re: Paychecks on 11/27 and 12/30
Due to the fact that the ESS department has been deemed "closed" for Thanksgiving break on November 27-29 and Winter break December 23-January 3, all paper paychecks and ACH paper copies will be mailed out on the pay dates (11/27/19 and 12/30/19).
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.

QUARTERLY WEBSITE UPDATES DUE 10/18!
As per the website update policy posted on 6/28/16 (click here to see posting), major website change requests are accepted by Jamie Hansen once a quarter. Website change requests for the next quarter are due by Friday, October 18. Jamie will be off on maternity leave beginning November 1, so it's crucial these updates get in on time!
NEW and IMPORTANT: As a reminder, any content or documents posted to the website will need to meet website accessibility requirements. Among other things, this means that all videos will need to be captioned. As well, all PDFs and Word documents will need to be properly tagged so a screen reader can understand them. If you are unsure about the accessibility of a document, just let Jamie know and we can check it with the help of the consultant who is assisting us in these efforts. If you are unfamiliar with these requirements, Jamie is happy to meet with you individually to discuss them - or set up a training with our consultant. Information and resources are also available at scoe.org/accessibility.
Thank you for your time and help keeping our website up to date and user-friendly!
If you have any questions, please contact Stacie.
