What’s New at ASCIP...

More Services For ASCIP Members

ASCIP is pleased to offer two new services at no additional cost to our members:  1) Permission Click;  and  2) NASDTEC Clearinghouse.

PERMISSION CLICK

Managing permission forms is a hassle. Plus, if the forms are not collected or cannot be retrieved when needed, members are exposed to liability. ASCIP now provides a solution!  Permission Click.  This resource is available to members at no cost to digitize paper forms, including parent permission slips while reducing administrative burdens.

Permission Click is a cloud-based system pre-loaded with the most up-to-date templates to collect signatures, track, and store forms.  It integrates easily with existing parent communication applications, includes over 100 languages, and offers a print option for unconnected parents.  Responses are easily tracked in on-screen and exportable reports, and records are securely stored for future access.  Susan Rutledge, Assistant Superintendent for Clovis USD says that Permission Click was easy to roll-out and “their customer service support has been amazing”!  The resource is much more convenient since fewer papers are involved.   Parents are assured of receiving the form rather than it getting lost in students’ backpacks.  Teachers have the emergency information on their phones during field trips rather than carrying stacks of paper forms with them.

Risk Management Specialist, Kina Mattoon at Walnut Valley USD shares that the process of approving field trips is much faster and easier using Permission Click.  Plus, determining which forms have not been returned is simple—if a parent has not responded, the form can be electronically sent to them and immediately returned so that students don’t miss out.

NASDTEC CLEARINGHOUSE

ASCIP is also pleased to give members access to the National Association of State Directors of Teachers Education and Certification (NASDTEC) Clearinghouse to assure that all staff, certified and non-certified, are safe to hire.  The Clearinghouse is a national database to identify educators with adverse actions against their teaching certificates—those whose certificates, licenses, or other similar credentials have been denied, revoked, suspended, surrendered, or otherwise adversely acted upon, such as sexual misconduct and substance use.  Since this information is typically not revealed in standard criminal background checks, unless an actual conviction occurs, members now have the ability to screen prospective employees across state-lines more comprehensively.

ASCIP offers both services at no cost to members.  Contact ASCIP risk services staff for more information regarding these programs.

Hats Off to Our Hometown Heroes at Riverside USD
March 29, 2018

School shootings are on our minds due to recent headlines, but we often assume these will occur elsewhere–Florida, Colorado, Virginia.  It is too close to home when the headline reads “…Hostage Situation at Riverside School Ends in Deadly Shooting.”   While the situation was horrific and ended with the police shooting the suspect, there were some lessons to be learned and some positive outcomes with minimal staff injuries and all students were kept safe.

This incident occurred this past Halloween to one of our ASCIP “family”.  While Castle View Elementary School had a single point of entry and visitor protocols in place, an agitated parent ignored those and barged in, punching a school volunteer who attempted to intervene.  The parent then grabbed a teacher holding her hostage in an empty classroom.
