Tis the season...

Kelli and Ramona Like I said earlier this week, ‘Tis the season…for retirement.  Kelli Roberts, from Shasta County Office of Education will soon be joining the ranks of the retired as well!

Kelli has been a great customer and partner to Escape.  The Shasta County Office of Education went live on Escape Online 5 in three phases starting in 2011. Kelli did an amazing job leading the implementation team and providing oversight and expertise to the districts throughout the process.  More recently, Kelli has been partnering with us to develop a whitepaper and video on the XCOE model.  I’ll be writing more about that next week so stay tuned.  We will really miss Kelli but wish her the best in her new adventure!

Working at the Shasta COE has been the best part of my career so far.  Going through with the Escape Implementation was one of the major accomplishments I experienced at the County Office.  Leaving is bittersweet (I love what I do and the people I work with I just need to live somewhere else) but, I know SCOE is well situated with the ESCAPE Software, the software support team at Escape and in the great hands of the business services staff at SCOE! Thank you everyone at Escape for all that I have learned and a special thanks to Kathy Carlson!  I will take the knowledge with me to Washington State and guess what, I will be working with Washington State Schools as a software support analyst, so the work continues!

Thank you Kelli and please make sure you keep in touch!
