January Staff Meeting - ASSIGNMENT DUE FRIDAY!

I hope you have had a chance to look at the information shared in Schoology from our January staff meeting! There were two main topics: emergency situations (questions / concerns / feedback) AND using other tools to load content in Schoology. As you may recall, I issued an assignment for staff members related to the Schoology training. All instructional staff are expected to engage in the assignment which is due THIS FRIDAY, January 17. Please let me know if you have questions!

(I think you will find the information to be helpful. The assignment is a way to ensure that you engage in the information that is being shared. Thanks!)
