Weekly Update from Andy
Another busy week at Keystone! At this busy time of year I want to encourage you to take time to watch for updates from your PDC committee and from Lushena in HR as she posts news of any vacancies that may come up. I will be sending out information related to the changes coming to dental insurance during the upcoming week so please watch for that as well. I hope you will stay tuned in to the issues being discussed during the legislative wrap-up session underway in Topeka. I will work to keep you informed as I identify issues important to special education. Together we will work through all of the challenges that come our way. Thanks for all you do!
