April 24, 2012
In an effort to increase the effectiveness of our annual training for Circuit Breaker claims we are planning to hold Circuit Breaker "Newbie" Trainings (CB101). CB101 is training specifically designed for "Newbie's ". It is for staff unfamiliar with the claim process.
This training is not geared to staff who has previously attended regular Circuit Breaking workshops.
We will discuss the history of circuit breaker, what are eligible and ineligible costs associated with circuit breaker, explain what a placement is, discuss approved and unapproved programs, and circuit breaker do's and don'ts. We will explain in detail all worksheets, macros buttons, as well as the out of district and in district claim pages of the claim file. In addition, there will be a basic "hands on" session that will allow the attendee to work on actual examples of simple claims from entering a new student to updating and deleting existing students.
We have scheduled Circuit Breaker "Newbie" Trainings at the following locations:
|May 1||Shrewsbury High School ||1:00 PM|
|May 2||Milton High School|| 1:00 PM|
|May 4 || Bridgewater Middle School||9:00 AM|
|May 9 ||Lower Pioneer Valley Collaborative||10:00 AM|
|May 11|| DESE, Malden||9:30 AM|
To register for a specific session go to the registration page.
You may also view the trainings on the Department's event page.
The regular annual Circuit Breaker trainings will be scheduled at the end of May and early June, they will be posted shortly.
Finally, the Circuit Breaker file will be available in the Department's Security Portal in early May; a follow-up email will announce the date.
We look forward to seeing you at the workshop.
