Message from the Director

Hello! Just a reminder that we will be helping with State Testing the first week of April and the first two weeks in May. During this time, please put in technology tickets, but be patient with us. We will be short-handed but will do our best to get to you as soon as we can.


Also, reminder if you were awarded a grant that has anything technology in it, please turn in your POs to Cynthia Harkrider then she will sign, add budget code and then send on to us. Then Debby enters the PO in the system and when you items arrive, we will deliver/install them for you. I have already updated chromebook and iPad quotes. If you need any quotes updated, let me know.


Have a great day!

Annette
