Leadership Shout Outs
A Shout Out For: Cassandra O’Francia
From: Sarita Siqueiros Thornburg
Cassandra has been crucial to the success of this year’s PSESD Student Involvement Internship! Her tenacity and focus with all the paperwork the students completed, her attention to detail in making sure all the logistical pieces of the internship ran smoothly, and her presence at the internship meetings themselves made it possible for the interns to do their amazing work. Thank you to Cassandra for helping us live into our values of ensuring those who are most impacted by the issue help create the solutions!

For the last year Communications has been teaming with Agency Tech to look at the data, and sift through the feedback from PSESD staff about the usability of MyPSESD.org. Sharepoint has many benefits, and the previous MyPSESD.org was well-liked by many staff too.
As our staff and workloads continue to grow and take us in new directions, Communications feels it is important to find new ways to offer PSESD staff the opportunity to learn about each other as colleagues and as fellow human beings. We are in this work together, and the more we know about each other the better we can achieve our shared goals.
We heard from many staff that you missed Agency Life and needed a place to connect with each other. The Communications team, with input from Agency Tech, worked to address the technical and legal issues that go into creating a space for staff that is safe, accessible, and meets all of the public records and retention requirements we need to adhere to as an agency and designed this space for staff.
This site is truly a place for PSESD staff to share news and information, personal and professional; to stay connected with each other; and to build community.
Everything you post is public and is being backed up on a regular basis.
This site is created for all PSESD staff to share news and information, leadership shout outs and fun stuff. Whether you work in Renton, Educare, in a School District, at ReLife or one of our many sites if you are a PSESD employee this site is for you!
The Weare.PSESD.org site is for internal staff use only.
PSESD supports relationships with appropriate organizations, individuals, business and other governmental and educational agencies. For promoting and sharing information on our external agency website, psesd.org, there must be a Sponsors/Co-Sponsors relationship established consistent with the PSESD mission, vision, and goals and in alignment with the cabinet established guidelines.
You can review the PSESD Cabinet have established guidelines for Sponsor Guidance on Sponsorships/Co-Sponsorships on mypsesd.org here: FINAL WITH CROSS REFERENCING_GUIDANCE ON SPONSORS__March2016.docx and PROCEDURE FOR SPONSOR.docx.
