(Teaching & Learning using Technology)
We are gathering information this week from teacher phone calls. Each student should be getting contacted to be asked about their technology needs. If you have not heard from a teacher by Friday, April 3 or your situation changes, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will be contacted by a member of the tech to arrange a device pickup time from the drive-through in the Washington gym parking lot. As we are still collecting information, the earliest tentative date for tech pick up will be Monday, April 6.
Vanessa Perez has gathered resource for continuous learning (Zoom, Google Classroom) on a Google Classroom. All teachers have been invited to join the class. Please click here to access. If you need additional training, please contact Vanessa Perez directly.
Please email email@example.com. The district is developing a plan to provide internet to students with need; we will update with information as progress is made. Please be patient as some things are out of our control such as the ordering of hot spots; tech companies are currently experiencing high demand.
Please create a work ticket as usual by writing an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
All teachers and the secretaries will have editing rights to the announcements; teachers may add announcements as needed. It's an important part of keeping students up to date on events, fundraisers, etc. Please also remove your slides when they are irrelevant. These are the announcements shown on the screens around campus. If you would like an announcement read aloud during Advisory, please contact Mrs. Hilterbran.

How to check a student’s detailed progress?
*You can click on the week to see more details.
If you are using a CHS facility (e.g. Practice Gym) or have a guest speaker needing to use tech, please use this form to create a high priority ticket so that IT can ensure it runs smoothly. As much advance notice as possible is appreciated, especially if a specific program or audiovisual component is needed.
(Do not use this form for normal work orders.)
Teachers must complete GCN training by October 1. If you were not given a user ID or have forgotten it, first click on the red link saying that at the bottom. If that does not work, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for help.
Google Classroom can be used to create a classroom hub for news and assignments. It works seamlessly with Google Apps for Education like Docs and Slides.
All teachers should have access to the CHS Announcements class on Google Classroom. Please email Ms. Perez if you do not have access.
Please email email@example.com with as much detail as you can give. The request will automatically be sent to all 3 members of our site’s technology staff and be assigned accordingly. Please do not email technology staff individually as it will result in duplicate tickets. If the ticket involves broken equipment, please leave it clearly marked in your room. Thank you
