Dewey Public Schools would like to congratulate Tanya Moody, 2nd grade teacher, on being selected as Dewey Public Schools 2016 Teacher of the Year. Tanya has been teaching at Dewey since 1999 and taught at Bowring Public Schools prior to that. Tanya received the selection by first being honored by her peers in the elementary school as their teacher of the year. After that honor, Tanya was chosen by a committee as the district teacher of the year among 3 candidates, Travis Ruble (MS) and Dan Close (HS). Tanya states that her family most influenced her to become a teacher, specifically her grandmother and aunt. She has earned a Master’s Degree in Reading and is National Board Certified. Tanya believes the best best way to strengthen and improve the teaching profession is to continually try to improve herself as an educator.
EZ School Pay Account Information
Over the recent break, Dewey Public Schools transitioned the accounting software we use in the cafeteria. Part of that transition involved the EZ School Pay online account payment. The change in cafeteria software requires that parents re-link the student accounts. This is done by selecting ADD STUDENT and entering the students LAST NAME and 4 digit numeric student ID. Do not attempt to link students using BIRTHDATE as that information is not yet loaded. Additionally, if your first attempt is not successful, please logout and back on before attempting again. Once the students have been relinked you may notice what appears to be duplicate students listed in RED. These can be left or deleted at your preference. These are NOT duplicate cafeteria accounts accounts, and they have no effect on your students cafeteria account or balance. After re-linking the student accounts, all of your existing preferences will remain in effect, and you can make payments, check balances, and perform other account actions as normal. We apologize for any difficulty and thank you for your patience and understanding as we finish this transition.
