Long & Windy Road to Imperial COE Offices

Some of you may have noticed that I’ve been out of the office a lot. Well, I’ve had the awesome pleasure of getting to be part of the Imperial County Office of Education (ICOE) implementation with Carole Williams, Project Manager, at Escape Technology leading the way. It’s a long road to get the offices of ICOE and it tends to be windy too, but so worth it once you’re there! A beautiful office and a great team of people, too!

During these past few months, I’ve met some amazing people who left a lasting impression on me. I’m looking forward to seeing them again at the Beyond Escape User Conference this coming October here in Sacramento.  Get registered today!

Mendocino Getting Excited About Escape Online

In mid-June, Jane Youngman, Escape Project Manager, captured the photos below of Mendocino COE staff, as well as district users during some working sessions. Jennifer Escamilla, Escape Product Manager, and Ranji Prasad, Software Support Analyst, were on-site lending helping hands.

They are Why We Do What We Do

Earlier this month, Carole Williams, Escape Project Manager was in Imperial County at Seeley Elementary School for a payroll work session. The very same night, she sent us a touching email and the photo below, and wrote, “I had the privilege of being on site with a one-school district on their last day of school. I always love being on site, seeing and hearing the kids, because it reminds me why we do what we do.  I wasn’t able to take a picture of the adorable little kids, but I thought this was cute.”

Oakland USD is Busy with Payroll Processing

The Port of Oakland might be the fifth busiest in the US, but Oakland USD's staff is just as busy with the Escape implementation. Payroll processing training was held in late May at the Oakland District Office in downtown Oakland. As you can see in the photo below, even though everyone was busy, they all had a smile.
