The SCASL Information Technology Committee is sponsoring a contest for all members who use our website! Each month (September through February) the names of the 5 most active users of the SCASL website will be entered into a drawing. At conference, we will draw 1 winner who will receive a $25 Amazon gift card! The more you log in and use the website, the better your chances are of winning. And, of course, the more you use the website, the more useful information and ideas you'll find!

Fine print:
The top 5 active users will be determined by actual use of forums, circles, etc and not just by number of logins. By the time of the drawing, there will be 30 names entered. Names may be entered into the drawing multiple times for different months if the member is consistently active on the website; therefore the more active you are for a long period of time, the better your chance of winning! Contact Heather Thore at [email protected] if you have questions about the contest or website.

As we head into another school year, it is time to review the SCASL-LS Discussion List Guidelines. If you are a new or returning member of this list-serv, please take a few minutes to remind yourself of the guidelines. Remember to NEVER share passwords on the list-serv (including DISCUS).

As I look through our new SCASL site each day, I realize the potential and get even more excited. Earlier today SCASL Information Technology Chair Jennifer Tazerouti shared about the site's social features that rival well known networking sites like Facebook and Linked In.  I worry though that some are missing out, simply because they don't understand.  Many of the best features are wrapped under a login, and members must first get logged in. Some have expressed an inability to log in. Some, for whatever reason, have not logged in because they don't remember their login credentials, but don't know how to get them.
