eT4L Primary Schools

An estimated 98 per cent of migrations have now been completed. This means that the ICT environment for more than 1735 primary schools in NSW has now been migrated to the eT4L solution. All migrations within the project's scope are scheduled to be completed by mid August.


The new file permission retro-fits are also well underway with 90 per cent completed.


In preparation for the project's transition to BAU, a one-day Lessons Learned workshop was held last week with project leads, eT4L regional representatives and ITD personnel in attendance. Recommendations from the workshop are being finalised.

Once the issue has been fixed, it will be placed in the Universal Desktop Management (UDM) for schools who have migrated to eT4L. It will also be available for regional technology advisors to access for all other schools.
