Why another site to look at? 2017-05-22T18:51:50+00:00

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.

Can anyone post here? 2017-05-22T18:51:55+00:00

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!



Can staff post outside events? 2017-05-22T19:56:42+00:00

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.

Just For Fun
