HVCHS Updates

---INFORMATION FOR THE WEEK OF JUNE 6, 2016---

TECHNOLOGY UPDATES

Emails were sent to all staff members who are scheduled to have their laptops replaced in the upcoming school year. If you did not receive an email and are experiencing laptop issues that need to be resolved before the start of the new school year, please submit a help desk ticket.


The district technology committee has released a newsletter that addresses many of the upcoming technological initiatives and changes that will occur during the 2016-17 school year. In addition, we will continue to visit PLCs over the next two weeks to get a better understanding of your concerns, interests, and questions regarding the district's technology initiatives. We will also be visiting each classroom to identify any current issues with technology.


OnCourse has released an update to the new gradebook which will allow teachers to change the point value of an assignment after it has been created. OnCourse developed and implemented this feature specifically due to feedback from CHS teachers!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

The Class of 2020 will be visiting CHS for 8th grade Transition Day on Monday, June 6. They will be following a specific schedule and should not affect your classes, but please contact us with any questions or concerns.


Please be sure to communicate via email or phone with the parents of any student who is in danger of failing for the marking period or for the year. OnCourse has added the ability for teachers to view running final averages, so this information is easily accessible for you. Please also continue to update your grade books regularly.

MEME OF THE WEEK

Rather than focusing on an article of the week and a tech tip of the week, we're celebrating the start of June with the Meme of the Week. If you have one that you'd like to include in the upcoming CHS Updates, please email it to us!

COMMUNICATION

Back in January, we set a goal of tripling our number of followers on Twitter by the end of the year. We are five followers away from our goal! Please follow us on Twitter: @HVCentralHS


We would like to create a school-wide hashtag that could be used by student groups, teams, and teachers each time a tweet is created about CHS. Please let us know if you have any suggestions!
