The Launchpad Student Support System has served as a resource to connect Visions students with resources for more than 17 years. As Visions grew as a school, the need to respond to student needs quickly outpaced traditional pen-and-paper ordering. Our team pioneered a unique ordering system that allows our staff to connect students in nine counties, from Walnut Creek to Lake Tahoe, with learning materials and resources that make our school run.
This August, our Ordering Services team filled its 1,000,000th order in Launchpad! This milestone could not have been possible without the dedicated work of our Ordering Services and Student Technology Services teams who work tirelessly behind the scenes to get families the learning materials they need.
“This is an amazing accomplishment which shows how our steady and focused approach has allowed us to reach this milestone,” says Visions’ COO Tom Tafoya. “Launchpad Student Support System is a continuously evolving tool that helps our staff do amazing work!
“17 years in the making, this is the brainchild of many who saw the vision (pun intended) and potential of what this system can do,” says Visions’ Director of Technology Uriel Gonzalez. “This investment in Visions has afforded numerous efficiencies, which I’m proud to say that I was a part of that. Kudos to my team for making this LOOK easy.”
And We’re Not Done Yet!
Launchpad continues to improve as our hardworking Technology Services team continues to find ways to make our services better. Last week, we also rolled out a new events and announcements feature that brings upcoming news and events straight to your Launchpad dashboard!
Thank you for the years of continued support that has made this milestone possible and we hope that Launchpad continues to be an invaluable resource for our students, teachers, and families.
