The following message was sent to staff at our school today:
Please refrain from CC to admin when you put in for a request to departments (requests from specialists) at school. It takes on a “tattling” connotation. We are all professionals and jobs will get done. If it’s reports, meetings or anything that needs tracking, please continue. Thank you for your prompt attention.
I’m sorry, but NO, jobs will NOT get done (that would be the WHOLE point of CC’ing admin). I’ve been at my school for a year and a half now, and I have YET to get a single response from our computer tech on ANY thing that I have correctly (using the proper forms and channels) submitted to her. If you try to talk to her, she tells you to submit the form. If you pressure her in any way, she complains to Admin. and Admin gets on your case.
Besides, I’m good with tattling, my little friends do it ALL the time.
