Updates after Florence!


Beginning of the Year Media & Technology Meetings that were scheduled for September 17 and 18 have been rescheduled for October 1.  Please note: This meeting is required to maintain your rights as a CTA, so please make sure you attend one of the following 2 options: 2:45pm-4:00pm OR 4:15pm-5:30pm in the AG Glenn Team Room.  There will not be an additional make up option.

MClass - Elementary Tech Folks please note that Amplify is requesting that all of the new ipads be updated to version 12 of the iOS.  PLEASE make sure if the device has been used for initial testing that the teacher SYNCS their data prior to completing this update.

Discovery Education issues have been resolved. Please let your teachers (elementary and middle) know it is up and running again.

Thank you for your diligence in assisting with preparations prior to the storm, thankfully in most cases this was just precautionary.  We appreciate all you do to make our schools awesome!

Welcome Back

We wanted to welcome you back to 2018-19 School Year, and share a few tidbits of information that might be help to you in the CTA Role.

The Acceptable Usage Policy sign off is part of the PowerSchool Parent Portal this year.  When parents sign off on the Gazette, they are agreeing to our AUP (among other items).  However, we want to encourage schools to take additional time/measures to discuss digital citizenship and online safety throughout the year and especially at the beginning of the year. Gazette attached for those of you who aren't parents in the district.

If you have contractual employees or student teachers/substitutes,  They can complete the staff AUP and send it to Christa Leverette, she will work on getting them a computer login as needed.  Form attached.

Reminder that new destiny patrons (teacher/staff) will need to be entered on this form:   http://bit.ly/JCSPatron

If you are making new purchases and the record hasn't been created (be sure to check for the record by searching "all of Johnston County", if it isn't in the system, you can request a new asset record here:   http://bit.ly/JCSAsset

We are still working on configuring the new filter and we are experiencing growing pains!  Chromebooks and Desktops are each configured separately, but we are doing our best to make the configuration the same.  Please continue to email Doug Denton when you find things that need to be unblocked.

As a reminder, when a student moves from one school to another their accounts will be down while we wait for the official transfer/enrollment to be received in PowerSchool.  If you can't see your student in your container, check with your data manager to see if they are completely enrolled first.  

Welcome Nicole Mellott to media, if you have questions about media stuff she will be your girl!

Never hesitate to contact us (Christa or Amy) for assistance!  We will see you at the opening meeting!
