Personal Leave Reminder
May 3rd Upgrade
The IT department would like to ensure that all staff-used Apple laptops receive a significant software upgrade before the staff leave the building at the end of the school year. This happens every year.
The upgrade, while large, will not significantly change the user experience... and is really just something we are doing for overall compatibility, and security reasons. Your staff should not need any adjustment period after the upgrade.
We will be offering 2 mechanisms, a self-upgrade and an IT dept assisted upgraded.
The self-upgrade instructions will be sent out later this week, and with those instructions I would like to also include the IT dept assisted procedure as well. I would like to get your blessing on the dates I have chosen for your school building. You do not need to notify your staff at this time, I will send out more details later this week.
The process: For staff wanting the IT department to perform their upgrade, they will leave their laptop in the school office on their way out of the building. (on their designated date)
I will come in later that evening (likely around 5:30) and perform the upgrade on any laptops left for me.
Staff can then pickup laptops on their way in the following day.
