Leased Printers/Copiers/Fax Machines in Destiny - DEADLINE JUNE 22



We need to track leased printers/copiers/fax machines in the district and the best way to do this is in Destiny.  We need very basic information in the record so (hopefully) this should not take up too much time.  As items are discarded/switched out, you will follow the same protocol as you would for regular resources (retire in Destiny and remove the barcode).  All leased machines should be entered under this one generic record as we do not need the manufacturer or model information, just counts and types.

Please complete the following fields for each contracted/leased machine at your site:

  • Barcode
  • Serial Number (can use contract number instead)
  • IP Address (can put N/A)
  • Equipment Type (printer only, fax only, or printer and fax)
  • Status (in use)
  • Condition (usable)
  • Home Location

Please enter these records before June 22.  Thank you for all you do for JCPS!

Summer Opportunity

edcampCode: Beyond the Hour of Code Workshops for All Teachers

image.png
Have you or your school hosted an Hour of Code? Are you looking to do more with coding in your class? You are not alone. In North Carolina, more than 5,000 teachers and 200,000 students have participated in Hour of Code activities. Many teachers and students are interested in bringing more opportunities to code and learn about computer science to their classrooms.
Our next edcampCode will take place on June 13, 2018 from 8:30 – 4:00 in Rocky Mount at West Edgecombe Middle School.  An edcamp is a user-generated conference - commonly referred to as an "unconference". Edcamps are designed to provide participant-driven professional development for K-12 educators. Edcamps are modeled after BarCamps, free participant-driven conferences with a primary focus on technology and computers. (via Wikipedia)
During this event, teachers can:
  • Develop core computational thinking and computer science skills.
  • Explore hands-on activities leveraging these skills.
  • Discuss opportunities and strategies for integrating computational thinking and coding into their courses.
  • Create and share curricular activities for their classes through guided work.

Homebase Maintenance



HomeBase Maintenance

The next Home Base maintenance weekend is scheduled for Friday, April 20 through Sunday, April 22. PowerSchool 
and Schoolnet are both included in this weekend's maintenance.

PowerSchool maintenance will involve the implementation of the new state collection, School Start-Time and 
End-Time Reporting, as mandated by state legislation G.S. 115C-12(18).  A script to remove the duplicate scheduling table records that prevent the Start-Time and End-Time Data Collection Autorun from running will also be implemented. For process instructions, please review the quick reference document (QRD) School Start-Times and End-Times 
available on the NC SIS site to accommodate users with the new reporting requirements. 

Schoolnet maintenance will involve a 19.1.11 version update that corrects reported issues that do not impact NC. Schoolnet will also load Gap Match and Graphic Gap Match Certica items that will require re-indexing, lasting approximately four hours.  All Schoolnet maintenance is expected to be completed Saturday, April 21 at approximately 12:30 p.m.

Home Base will be brought down Friday, April 20 at 5 p.m. and returned to service no later than Monday, April 23 
at 6 a.m.  Once maintenance is completed, a message will be sent to notify users that the applications are up and available for use. If there is a delay in returning the applications to service, users will be notified.
