How is my Quyana used?

When you submit your form on-line, a copy is immediately shared with the employee/volunteer and his or her supervisor. It is also forwarded to the webmaster for inclusion on the district's home page. A small batch of Quyanas appear on the Web site for a couple of weeks and then are replaced. Depending on the number of Quyanas received it can be a little while before it appears on the Web site.
