Summary – At This Point In Time
No additional ACOE districts should be brought online to Escape OL5 software.
The current districts on Escape OL5 in Alameda County remain in an implementation phase expectation of support. * OL5 is not yet a turnkey software package- * Still in development with goal of effective & efficient processes * Districts are part of the “debugging” * CRs appear to languish for some time & priority is determined by whom?

* Frequent releases yet work-arounds continue for basic California school business accounting and payroll processes * Reliable? Successive releases sometimes lose previous fixes * Accurate? Successive trials do not always yield the same result * Responsive? Does not provide for some basic processes * Confusing? Too many options when the basics aren’t reliable * Credible? One whole manual chapter & report are not usable * Resources? ET expanding to other districts… * Current on-line districts have not all completed a full year cycle * Steeper learning curves due to frequent releases * Flux in legislation & resources is dynamic as it is * Accountants struggle with “art” - custom reports, data access * Basic business processes “science” must be tight * Key accounting positions are not being backfilled

* Current ACOE support staff is in flux * Forensic accounting skills to drill down into software & transactions * Districts expect ACOE to interpret the software & “make it work” * Changes should be seamless-consistent

* Communication = Relationship * Strengthen ET > ACOE > inter-department>intra-department>key district staff>ACOE>ET * Understand Districts unique limitations of training, skill, resources *…...

Escape Reality

...Escape Reality Your mind drifts off for those few moments, the emotions felt when the world around has been forgotten. For just those few moments everything about you, and the world you live in has been forgotten. Muhammed Ali gave that to the people of Zaire. For those few moments, all of the trouble, misery, and mislead government… is forgotten. The fight, and the charismatic Muhammed Ali, gave the people of Zaire something to believe in for those few weeks before the fight. The fight itself brought two completely different cultures and countries together. Culturally, Politically, and Socially, we as a society are vastly different from the culture of Zaire. Muhammed Ali brings unity to Zaire throughout 1974. PolyGam, the producer of this documentary chooses to show cultural differences. Zaire throws their lifestyle in the culture. The soothsayer shows up several times throughout the documentary. She remains a constant reminder that they are in fact in Zaire and that Muhammed Ali embraces the culture of Zaire. The soothsayer is a fundamental aspect of their culture. The soothsayer, is the fortune teller who performs and tells the audience what the future will hold for Zaire. This would never occur in the United States. Granted we have our occasional palm readings. But for the majority we just live our lives and find out what happens when it happens...

The Escape

...something to do with little success. Soon after, weeks had gone by—still no progress. Our secret escape became infested with people who had no sentimental value for it. But then, my brother came up with an idea. My brother suggested that we forget about the old hang out location and make a new one that was twice as good. This way, they would all abandon our old location, and move to the new one, solving all our problems. It seemed easier said than done. For the next few days, we all worked together to find a new location on the other side of the development behind a few houses where there were a few trees, and soon we got to work, In order for our plan to be successful we needed to make sure that the place was desirable. We began to climb high in the trees and tie pieces of string as high as we could as a challenge for other kids. The challenge was simple; you had to climb the tree as high as possible and tie a string once you got to the highest point you were able to. We also arranged a few large rocks as chairs, so people could relax similar to our original location. The last step was to spread the word. To our surprise, it did not take much effort because we kept telling everyone about the tree challenge, and how we thought that nobody could climb higher to appeal to the ego of the other kids. Within a few days all the other kids were using the new location as their ‘escape.’ We returned to our original location and were extremely excited to be able to reclaim our......

Software to Support Assessment

...Faux Software to Support Assessment Using assessments can be very a very difficult part of teaching. Evaluating a child’s performance in school can be very hard, but a necessary part of the educational process. For many, assessments mean test. Students and parents view these assessments as a way to out-do their classmates and compete to see who is able to get the highest grade. They don’t view these assessments as a way to know if they understand the things being taught. Assessments are created to serve a purpose. They help diagnose learning disabilities, identify a student in need, and help the district meet their yearly goals Technology to Facilitate Ongoing Efforts to Assess Student Learning Teachers are able to use technology in many different ways. Teachers us observation, making adjustments when needed in a lesson, communication, written assignments, and giving tests to help each student know their strengths, and weaknesses. To make sure no child is left behind a teacher needs to evaluate the child’s daily, monthly, and quarterly progress. This will help the teacher understand what is each child still needs help on. By modifying the curriculum for some of the children this will help each one individually. Students should have the opportunity to use assessments in their class to help understand all the tasks that are being assigned during. The software being used can include many things. Including presentation, keyboarding software, presentation software,......

Island Escape

...Ashton Ben February 13, 2014 ENG 101 MWF 12 # 2 Profile My Island Escape Ever since I was a little kid I knew where I always dreamed of living. My dream home would be more than I could ever imagine. It would be on a bright and warm island. With the white sand all around me, bright from the glistening of the sun, to the feel of the breeze blowing up to the shore and the sound of the beautiful aqua blue waves. As I walk up to the house all I imagine to see is a big porch overlooking the island. I see a two story house with maybe 3 bedrooms or so, not too big. It should be rustic, in a light colored wood or a nice colored plaster, with big windows where I can sit on the windowsill and look out on the island. It will be bright with a light sense and feel to it. Sitting with crisp white rocking chairs so that every evening as the sun goes down I can lose myself in the calm sound of the waves. Where I can be evincible over anything and everything life throws at me. What will be light and cozy from the inside as if you were sitting in the sand, relaxing and not a care in the world about anything stressful. The living room will have huge windows overlooking the gorgeous blue water and will give the room a nice lightning in the day and when the evening comes there will be plenty of candles lit for the warmth feel in the room. With a built in couch all the way down the room so me and my little family could spend hours playing games. The kitchen is a very important......

Escape Fire

...Week 1 Strategic Management Escape Fire The movie Escape Fire clearly states the facts that currently affect the healthcare system in the U.S. and proposes solutions that are at our reach as individuals, as a community and as a country. We are a country that sets the tone for almost everything that is popular in the world and something as necessary to our livelihood as healthcare is, we certainly are not on top of how to set that tone in that aspect that should be as popular as the air we breathe. We have the ability to change the game as it is suggested in the movie, and persuade the behavior changes necessary for all Americans to make in order to control the management of diseases culture that we are currently in and turn it into a more preventive culture. The amount of money spent every year in the U.S. on healthcare is a number that is almost three times of what other industrialized countries spend per capita, and yet, our life expectancy is at number fifty in the world. Clearly, our outcomes are not commensurate with the money that is being spent. Preventive medicine is the model that we need to follow and we currently follow the disease management way of healthcare. 30% of the money spent per year is spent in vain, for, it does not improve the health of those treated. As suggested in the movie, we need to have more Primary Care Physicians that have the opportunity to educate, treat, prevent and follow up without the burden of productivity that is driving the......

My Escape

...My Escape It is just after 9:00 am on a sunny September morning. My feet have just hit the dirt of the parking lot where just a few other cars are parked. There are always the same few people who like to come here early in the morning to walk their dogs, walk themselves, or, if they're like me, they are here to run. I step from the dew soaked grass onto the clay and dirt mixture that now cover what used to be train tracks. Thoughts from my week about family, work, school, and friends along with anything else that one girl could possibly worry about, swirl around in my head like lightening bugs trying to find their way out of a mason jar. I need to let these thoughts and emotions out of my mind. A deep breath fills my lungs with crispy cold air. I begin to take off. One foot after the other until I find my pace. Suddenly the parking lot fades into the distance as if it were only a mirage. Trees that are as high as sky scrapers tower over me allowing the sunlight to disperse thought the branches. The leaves on the trees are entering their final stages of life, turning them to the most magnificent shades of red, orange, and yellow. This time of year, I always think, is what makes New England such a beautiful place to live. Along side of me, out of my peripheral vision, I see a black squirrel gathering some acorns to haul back to his nest for the winter. My feet continue to trample the ground below me cushioning my feet from the tracks below. The dirt underneath me is......

In this paper, it is discussed that there are many laws related to the software engineering but only few of them are to be addressed. Boehm first and second law, Conway’s laws, Parnas laws & Corbato law were discussed with examples. There are two relationship processes that are also discussed, related to the software Engineering. Law method and tools which are depended on each other and they are performing the task with the help of principle and process by following the rules. Same scenario is followed in other relation too, where observation, law and theory are depended on each other. Observation is repeatable to law and law is explained by theory. Theory should be confirmed by the law and it predict by the observation before further proceeding. Introduction Question No 1 Boehm's First Law Errors are more regular in the middle of fundamentals and configuration exercises and are more abundant when they are displaced. In this law, some basic configuration errors do outnumber code blunders. However, cost stays......

...Escape to freedom A slave’s escape story I am running, running faster than I never knew I could. The dogs caught on to my scent after the creek and now they’re closing in. I have no choice but to keep running because if I stop death by lashing is almost certain. I should probably explain how I got here in the first place. Hi, my name is Sally Shayne and until a few hours ago I was a slave of the Cottonwood Family in South Carolina. This story all starts back about a week ago when the warden announced that we were going to be sold off during the week because our owner Mr. Fields couldn’t afford our uptake anymore. I have lived on that plantation all my fifteen years and I had really grown close to the other slaves. Everyone was in shock especially Samba and Shawnee who were practically my brother and sister. There were sold to a man in Georgia within two days. After the loss I didn’t have a reason to stay so I packed up some food from dinner, my few possessions and waited. The warden as usual did his nightly head count which was sort of ironic since I was the only one left. Then I snuck out of the window silently so as not to be heard and ran as soon as I hit the forests edge. For a while I thought I was home free after all I had walked up the creek for ten minutes before I got out and started running again. Unfortunately though the dogs crossed over and somehow managed to pick my scent up again. So......

My Escape

...My escape Summer Morris HUM/115 June 29, 2015 Kimberlee Neitz My escape We often throw our problems at ourselves. We think entirely too much. To make us frantic and very confused. But, why are we causing these problems, and why are we worrying so much about something that’s not even there from the beginning. A problem creator is someone who creates their problems that aren't there to begin with (Critical Thinking in everyday life, 2015). They have so much in their mind you start making problems that aren't even their also known as the thinker. According to (Ridel, 2015) a mind is a terrible thing to waste so why wastes your brainpower creating problems. According to “Critical Thinking in Everyday Life” (2015), “They are their worst enemies” so there is no reason to overthink things that are not there. I selected problem creator because this category reminds me of myself. I have so much on my mind at times that I start thinking too much. Thinking too much isn't good. Because, it wears you down having you believe something is wrong. When I’m alone by myself or just sitting, that’s when your mind start wondering about situations you shouldn't be worried about in the first place. Makes you depressed and it can turn worse if you don’t get it taking care of by talking to somebody you’re comfortable with and venting to them to get a solution to the problem. I plan to improve my problem by going to a counselor. Talking to about my life situations. Why am I......

No Customer Escapes

...Earlier this year we began our “No Customer Escapes” initiative. This project is to be our best customer service tool to date. We have designed this program to not only retain our customers but bring them back more often spending greater dollars. We are doing this by rewarding our customers, the more they spend, the greater their rewards. This project took us a total of 4 months. It was tough to do, but we stayed on our time line and rolled out our pilot on October 15th. This did cause us to go over budget, however, the money that was spent was worth it. We developed a program that exceeded the initial ideas, not only do our customers get rewards when they shop in our stores, but they also get rewards when they shop at our website. For this project, not only did we implement the ability of each of our customers spending to be tracked, categorized and given rewards points accordingly, we also implemented a way to track our customers web purchases and give them rewards there. In addition, we also developed a way to give our customers printed coupons to use in our stores as part of their rewards. We have this program live in our Irvine stores currently, and we are seeing much success with it so far. Once we are done with this initial limited rollout, and the results are reviewed, we will be rolling this program out company wide. On this project we had a very talented team working on it. Each of them brought something unique to the table that was an asset to......
