The tech department is actively working to accomplish some major projects over the summer break period. In many cases, these significant changes are occurring now to minimize disruptions to classrooms once school is back in session.
In an effort to provide maximal transparency, reasoning and advance training, we've put together this page to dynamically update all ECSD staff on changes during this transition period. By providing a list of projects, changes and frequently asked questions (FAQ) - we hope to provide better service to all of our staff, teachers, students and parents.
Our focuses have been on standardization of technology practices, removing classroom obstacles, and providing the best updates within our budget scope.
We welcome any staff or community member who would like to discuss these changes in-depth. We are actively soliciting feedback on how to make our processes and changes better.
