Updates from Digital Learning


There is an opportunity from DPI for Instructional Technology Facilitators on Feb. 9th @ the McKimmon Center from DPI. (There are other days and locations; but this one is the closest to JCPS)

Registration begins December 1 and is based on a first come, first serve basis. Unfortunately, the county can not help cover substitutes so this would have to be supported by each school. Please check in with your principal and register below if you are able to attend. Also, let me know if you plan to be there.

Speak Up Survey Open



Speak Up NC 2017 logo
Speak Up 2017 survey is open for participation October 16th through January 19, 2018 with results released in February 2018.
Speak Up is an annual research project conducted by Project Tomorrow, a national education nonprofit group that
collects and reports on the views of K-12 students, teachers, administrators, and parents on education and technology. More than 5 million students, educators, parents, administrators, and community members have shared their views regarding the use of educational technology through the Speak Up surveys.  The password for Johnston County is speakup17.  Please encourage teachers, students and parents to participate (one great way to promote it is to put the information on your website).  It only takes a few minutes.

The Speak Up 2017 website includes:
  • General information about the project
  • Instructions for the surveys
  • Ideas for how you can use your data
  • Promotional materials
  • and more
In general, Speak Up has three primary objectives:
  • To provide a means for local schools and districts to easily and effectively listen to and act upon the ideas of
    their stakeholders.
  • To provide a conduit for the voices of education stakeholders, most notably students, to inform national
    and/or state/provincial policies and programs.
  • To stimulate new local discussions around the use of technology within education.
Speak Up, North Carolina!

Title 1 Discards Update




As a follow up to Tuesday's meeting, we checked with the Title 1 office to get clarification on their discard procedures.  Please use the attached document to request discarding Title 1, ESL or other Federal items.


CTE has their own procedure and should be in contact with any CTE teacher getting updated equipment.
