The next generation of our PeopleSoft system will "go live" after SCC's Spring Break next week. Many thanks to the SCC constituents who will be working throughout Spring Break to accomplish this upgrade which will improve the functionality and capabilities of MySCC applications. Remember, in preparation for the Spring Break upgrade, all MySCC PeopleSoft functions and the TIM system will be unavailable Friday, March 7 through Sunday, March 16. However, GroupWise, Angel, and the SCC website will not be affected during this upgrade - there will be no interruption of service for those areas. Finally, please be sure to turn off all computers and office equipment prior to departing for Spring Break.
As Dr. McGee announced earlier this week, new "SCC Core Values" and their supporting action statements have been developed by your colleagues.

With blustery spring weather upon us and hurricane season on the horizon, now is a good time to sign up to receive special weather alerts and other emergency information about our community and SCC. This text messaging is a subset of Seminole County’s current text messaging alert system, so there is no cost to SCC. Here's how to sign up:
Once you have finished, you should receive any requested emergency information from Seminole County and any emergency text messages from SCC.
The appointments of Chick Gregg and Scott Howat have been approved by the Senate Committee, and now will go to a full Senate vote for confirmation.
Florida's legislative session has convened this week and last night Governor Crist delivered his "State of the State" address. The Legislature's first task will be to deal with cuts to the remaining 2007-08 state budget. Further statewide reductions are being proposed and should be voted on by the time we return from Spring Break. However, we are hopeful that our budget reductions made earlier this year, coupled with SCC's and the system's enrollment increases and our critical role in the economic recovery of Florida, should serve us well and shield us from a drastic change in our remaining 2007-08 budget.
