SWIFT v2

SWIFT version 2 is here, and we are helping staff make the transition into the new version.


The Instructional Technology department is offering brief training sessions for every building. We would like to help teachers move into the new SWIFT v2 before the end of the school year so as not to get in the way of eSchoolPLUS training in August and next fall.


Please speak with your building administrator to see if training has been scheduled for your building. Otherwise, you could attend a session offered at the PDC. More information coming soon.
