Gearing up for the Holidays

The majority of the new Chromebooks have been installed in the carts at both schools. I am currently working on making the older Chromebooks available to your classroom after minor damages have been repaired and they are updated. Stay tuned for more info on that front.


In other news, Windows 7 is reaching the End of Life (EOL) next January. In order to get a jump on this massive undertaking, I will begin updating your desktop PCs to Windows 10 starting in January. Keep an eye out for details in the New Year.


And lastly, just a word about Cyber Security. As the popularity of online shopping continues to increase, so does the number of potential unsuspecting victims for cyber criminals to exploit.


With the holiday season quickly approaching, you must remain vigilant and take proactive steps to safeguard your school, personal and financial data.


To help combat the threats posed by cyber criminals this year, the NJCCIC has compiled a list of tips and best practices to assist you in staying safe while shopping in stores and online throughout the year and especially during the holiday season.

It is not about the technology; it’s about sharing knowledge and information, communicating efficiently, building learning communities and creating a culture of professionalism in schools. These are the key responsibilities of all educational leaders.
