  • Speak Up Survey Announcement

    Posted by Kortney Freyoux on 10/3/2019

    Be part of the conversation! Speak Up, a national research project facilitated by Project Tomorrow, provides an easy way for district stakeholders to share their views on technology and learning with St. Mary Parish administrators. Your survey answers can affect local decisions about technology, as well as contribute to the national dialogue about educational technology. 

    Voluntary participation from educators, staff, parents/guardians, students, and community members in this survey will help us answer important questions about student technology use inside and outside the classroom and about your views concerning key issues impacting the education of our students. 

    Since 2003, Project Tomorrow has collected and shared the viewpoints of more than 5.7 million participants through its yearly survey. All responses are 100% confidential, and no identifying information is collected about/from any participant. 

    Taking the survey is easy! (approximately 20 minutes)

    1. Open the Speak Up e-flyer in Peachjar OR visit our Project Tomorrow: Speak Up webpage for all school-site survey links. 
    2. Select the right survey for you: 
      • Student in Grades 3-5, 6-8, or 9-12
      • Parent (in English or Spanish)
      • School Employee (Teacher, School Administrator, District Administrator, Librarian, Technology Leader, Other School/District Staff)
      • Member of the Community and Business Partner

  • Be Wary of Open Enrollment Scams

    Posted by Susan Dupre on 11/13/2019

    Two important deadlines are quickly approaching for adding or changing your health coverage if you use one of the following options: 

    • Medicare:  December 7
    • Affordable Care Act (ACA): December 15

    Gretchen Abraham from the FTC's Division of Consumer & Business Education has shared the following tips on the Federal Trade Commission's website to help you avoid being scammed:

    For Medicare:

    • There are no Medicare sales representatives. Anyone who tried to sell you Medicare insurance is a scammer. 
    • You do NOT have to join a prescription drug plan to keep your Medicare insurance. Medicare Part D is voluntary and has nothing to do with your regular Medicare coverage.
    • Telephone scammers posing as "official agents" may ask for personal information, offer free equipment or services, ask for a quick payment, or threaten you. Just hang up.
    • Help with Medicare is available at medicare.gov or 1-800-MEDICARE.

    For Affordable Care Act:

    • Compare plans and quality ratings at healthcare.gov, where you can also enroll.
    • This year, you can also sign up for an ACA plan directly with certain certified partners.  Make sure a company is on the Certified Partner list before giving them your information. 
    • After you apply for ACA, you may get a phone call from the Marketplace asking you to verify information or supply additional information. If you are unsure about trusting the caller, ask the representative to mail you a letter with instructions for completing your application.
    • Help for ACA is available from the Marketplace Call Center at 1-800-318-2596.  You can also meet with a local assistant in your community who will offer free assistance. Local assistance can be found through the Local Assistance tool.
