PA-ETEP Training Resources Available
Remember that our Support desk has myriad of resources and training materials available as a refresher for current users or as a means for you to train your newly hired staff on PA-ETEP. Visit our Support desk page, which includes a link to our recorded refresher webinar!
If you are not taking advantage of all of our modules in PA-ETEP, learn more about how you can get the most out of the software by using the Differentiated, SLO, Non-Teaching Professionals (NTPE), Attachments, and Custom Forms modules. Check out the PA-ETEP Modules.
Speech and Language Role/Rubric Update
We recently notified you about the addition of the Speech and Language rubric to PA-ETEP. You may now use the rubric by assigning a user the NTPE Role and NTPE Sub-Role of Speech Language Pathologist. This allows you to utilize an 82-3 form and Speech Language Pathologist rubric inside the NTPE Observation, Formal Observation and/or Differentiated Supervision process.
In some instances, a Speech Language Pathologist may be working without a Speech Language Pathologist certificate from the state and it is therefore recommended that the individual be evaluated as a Teacher with a unique role.

The School Safety and Security Committee (SSSC) established within the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) recently announced School Safety and Security Grant Program funding for school districts for the 2019-2020 school year.
Details on the announcement can be found on the PCCD grant website. The application period opened September 9, 2019 and will close on November 4, 2019. The announcement states that both Meritorious and Competitive grants are available, which means grant money can be used to purchase software, including Comply.

Recent Comply Case Study: Northeast Bradford School District
We recently sent you a client spotlight case study from Northeast Bradford! We love hearing from our clients to see how Comply has made an impact on workflow and administration of clearances, mandated trainings and Act 48 tracking. One of the biggest benefits Northeast Bradford has experienced is the significant amount of time saved as a result of using Comply. Additionally, the personal attention our support team provides has been immeasurable to their success with Comply. Take a moment to read the case study!
