Audio Enhancement Repair Information

Recently there has been an increase in the number of Audio Enhancement microphones sent in for repair to the District. The main reason they have found for needed repairs is because teachers are plugging in the recharging cable incorrectly. User error such as this is not covered under the warranty policy. This is resulting in schools having to pay for the repairs out of building funds. The district is asking everyone to correctly plug in the systems to avoid unnecessary costs.

Testing Tips and Tidbits!

A HUGE thank you to fourth grade classes for the spectacular way they have left the testing labs! It is appreciated so much!!

Here are some tips for everyone:
  • Remain calm :)
  • If the students choose to use their own headphones, please have them re-plug in the ones that were there for the next student.
  • PLEASE have the students check their space for wrappers and clean them up! Those little pieces of candy and wrappers get into the mice. Plus it's just common courtesy to the next student.
  • The graph paper is there to help solve problems, please don't use it for drawing paper when they are done testing or write messages to the next student on it.


Thanks for your help with this!

The end of the school year is fast approaching. Please be watching for emails concerning summer power downs, upcoming changes, summer check-outs and staff returns.
