Rule 4.4.11 of the CPA/State Festival manual requires all directors who participate in the sight reading portion at CPA to sign a form indicating that he/she has read and understands the rules and procedures which govern the event. The form in the attachment below will be available in the sight reading room for you to sign when your first group reads. If you have multiple groups you will only need to sign the form once. The form may be duplicated as necessary.

1. Tick. Tick. Tick..... October 1st looms ever closer. Please take care of your AAA certification and membership fees asap if you've not already done so.

2. Voting ends at noon tomorrow (Tuesday) on the motion from the board to amend the mentor program. Please log in to the Communication Center and vote if you've not already done so.

3. For those of you who need it CHQ video productions has posted a video of how to register your students for all region tryouts. Just see the link in the Video's menu. Please don't wait until the entry deadline to add your students.

4. Speaking of CHQ.... we will be operating on a limited schedule today so please be patient if you need a quick response to something. One of our staff members said something about a root canal today......

1. Our deepest sympathies to Johnny Peoples (Marion) at the loss of his father, James Peoples. ArkCDA has made a donation to the scholarship fund in his memory.

2. A reminder that you can send your paperwork (invoice, AAA certificate & list) electronically by taking pictures of them and sending those in. I prefer you to email them rather than send them as a text message. You can also upload your AAA stuff in the Communications Center.

3. I think I mentioned that I put a link to the mobile site on the main menu of the home page. I also put a "Full site" option on the mobile page. If something you're looking at doesn't scale to your device please let me know specifically what it is so I can try to adapt it. The manuals should all display properly.

4. Don't wait until the last minute to start entering your students in the all region tryout database. The more people who access it at once the slower it runs.

5. HEY NEW FOLKS! Have you signed up for the mentors' mailing list? If not the simplest way to do it is to send me an email requesting me to add you.

Enjoy your long weekend. It's gonna get serial when we come back.

1. Online voting continues through noon on Thursday the 14th. Just log in to the Communications Center and click on the Voting Booth. Or, click the button on the home page to go directly to the booth (you'll still have to log in). If you have any problems voting please contact one of our poll workers.

2. AAA Eligibility - This HAS to be done before your students can participate in tryouts this fall. There are 3 ways to send that in.
1. - You can upload it to the Fall Semester 2014 board (preferred)
2. You can email it to
3. You can put it in the mail (least preferred)

Please read this statement aloud three times (people will just think you're talking on your phone) "Until I send in BOTH a list of my students AND the signed AAA certificate my students cannot participate."

By themselves neither one of those is enough. It takes BOTH.

The certificate is available on the website under Forms & Fees.

1. Our sympathies to Maleah Rainey (Crossett) on the passing of her father Leland Barnett. ArkCDA will make a donation to the scholarship fund in his memory.

2. Voting continues on the website. If you experience any problems with it please let me know.

3. If you've already submitted the online participation form you can stop reading. But if you haven't - I got the data I needed on CPA from the online database. Unfortunately for whatever reason, I zapped (emptied) the tryout database. So all I need is an estimate of how many students you had try out for either junior high or senior high. If you wish you can just shoot me an email with the info. If you've already done the form THANKS!

Found several good rubrics on the subject at Hawthorne HS near Beverly Hills.  I condensed them down to the attached.  Going to start using it.
