But we all know that the potential for our students is unlimited when we use these mobile devices to enhance the many great things we're already doing.

Here is some brief information and dates for you to be aware of and plan for:
  • The district will provided some opportunities for parents to learn about the iPad Intiative and all of the new policies and and expectations for using these devices.
