Leaving Aldine?

If you're retiring or have found employment outside of Aldine for next year please turn in your badge before you go! If you are remaining in the district you need to hold on to your badge, it is what you will use to get into the Bamberg Building for any Summer PD you attend. Remember, once your resignation date hits, the HR system is set to automatically disable your account and Tech Services cannot recover the files after that. Here is how to use Google Takeout.

Online Required Training to be completed by August

ALL TEACHERS MUST complete the Required Online Trainings. The different sections have various due dates, but you can find them all HERE.
