PROTECTION OF MINORS TRAINING
United Educators is currently changing their learning platform. This change will affect access to the protection of minors training from now until the end of July 2017. If you have a need to take this training due to your work requiring you to work with minors prior to August 1, 2017, please contact Frances Isgrigg at email@example.com or Kim Knudsen at firstname.lastname@example.org . They will make sure you have what you need before working with minors. We apologize for this change and will work on the new platform access so that all can help keep our minors safe.

All Title IX training will now be completed by logging into UAOnline and accessing this training with your UA login and password.

For those of you who are unaware, Thadd Williamson has changed positions in our department. He is now the Facilities Services Safety Officer. We are thrilled to have Thadd working with facilities to support them in day-to-day safety. His email has remained the same, but to make the transition easier on Facilities Services, his phone number has changed to 907-474-5949.
