Given the recent announcement of school closures across the state of Louisiana for the remainder of the
school year, Family Engagement Lab is offering two cost-effective tools to increase students’ academic
readiness: FASTalk Summer and FASTalk.
FASTalk Summer is a new family engagement tool designed to compensate for lost learning time.
Texting parents literacy activities during the summer months has been shown in academic
research to more than compensate for lost learning typically experienced by students. FASTalk
Summer is a simple, accessible, text message-based learning tool to support families with limited
access to devices and the internet, as well as those facing language barriers.
FASTalk is an easy tool that sends families weekly text messages with curriculum-aligned and
standards-aligned learning activities in PK-5 supporting academic, social, and emotional skill
development. FASTalk is preloaded with practical tips for parents to support high-quality
instructional materials, aligned with ELA Guidebooks, EL, CKLA, Wit & Wisdom, and more.
FASTalk supports two-way communication between parents and teachers with automated
translation in more than 100+ languages.

Reminder: Registration Requirements under the Military Selective Service Act
The Department, U.S. Selective Service System, and U.S. Department of Education would like school systems to remind students of the registration requirements under the Military Selective Service Act, 50U.S.C. §§ 3801-3820.

Males are required to register beginning 30 days prior to their 18th birthday and extending 30 days thereafter. Late registration is accepted up to the 26th birthday. Failure to register prior to reaching age 26 may result in unfortunate life consequences, including:
● ineligibility for employment by the federal government, U.S. Postal Service, and many state and
local governments;
● ineligibility to receive federal and, in some cases, state student financial aid;
● ineligibility to receive job training under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act;
● ineligibility for security clearances; and
● delay in citizenship proceedings.

Registration can be completed online, or by completing a hard copy of the Selective Service System registration form available at any U.S. Post Office, or available for downloading from the Selective Service System website. Additional registration details and resources are available. Please contact dmcsupport@sss.gov with questions.
