eLearning Conference Survey / PowerTeacher Pro

This week you will be receiving a couple of announcements. The first will be a call for assistance to help with the planning of next July's eLearning conference. We will be sending a survey and would appreciate your responses so that we ensure the topics and sessions are relevant and helpful to your work.

We will also be sending out an announcement seeking teachers interested in piloting PowerTeacher Pro - the newest gradebook available from PowerSchool. This new product is web accessible and therefore can be accessed from your new Chromebooks!

Emails regarding both eLearning and PowerTeacher Pro will be out early this week:)
