Thank You!
Survey Monkey  
This past year the IM&T department deployed 7,500 Chromebooks to students in elementary and high schools across the district with your help.  The shift from laptop/netbook computing to Chromebook computing required intensive training and ongoing support from the IT department and committed teachers willing to learn something new and provide our students with the latest in educational technology.   
 
We had 390 teachers respond to the Chromebook survey that was sent to select schools May 1st.  Thank you for responding in such large numbers.  The time you took and responses you made, helps the Instructional Technology department better meet your needs with respect to technology integration of the Google environment. 
 
The following, randomly selected, teachers received a little extra thank you from the IT Department: Chywane Collins-Ely (#15), Pamela McMindes (IATHS), Kristen Baskewicz (#34) and Brittany Pallo (#42)
