    • CASEL Roadmap to Re-Opening Schools

    • Second Wind Fund - Youth Suicide Prevention Updates

    • The AWARE team has been working with the IT department, Legal Department, and Accountability Department to operationalize the system that allows students to make name and/or gender changes in the district’s information systems. This work began a couple of years ago, and this collaboration has allowed us to develop guidance documents that explain the process clearly for staff. The flow chart allows staff to see, at a glance, what to do given a particular request for name and/or gender change. The guidance document provides detailed information about the different information systems in APS and how a name/gender change is managed within those systems. It also provides support in how to discuss these details with students and some clear DO’s and DON’Ts during the process. These are working documents. We hope that if you have any feedback that will help improve them you will let us know! The important thing is that our adults are empowered to support our students! :)
