Reminders and Updates from EdTech
Use the EdTech Resource page to remind yourself of all of the services that IT provides. Here you can find tutorials and documents to use in your classroom. We are in the process of updating all tutorials to a new Google Doc format, so if you don't see something available right now, know that it will be linked back with the new format soon!https://intranet.iusd.org/edtech/
You can also easily search for tutorials and resources using our new Helpdesk HelpCenter - check it out here!
Aeries User Interface Update
Over the summer, the Aeries user interface was updated. While colors and fonts have changed, the overall functionality and location of items is extremely familiar. Updates showing the new interface on the tutorials and guides are located here. The Aeries Gradebook will benefit you by providing your parents with access to their child's grades throughout the year and you can easily transfer the grades from your gradebook to the report card.
Canvas is our district adopted course management solution (CMS). Here is a newsletter for teachers returning to Canvas to ensure they start the year off right. You may notice some important changes and new updates to features within Canvas. Please be sure to read through this flyer for more details.

Google Apps for Education is available to all students and staff in the district. Look for trainings throughout the year to learn to use Docs, Forms, Sheets, and Slides in your classroom.https://intranet.iusd.org/edtech/google-drive.html
Non-District Adopted Software
If you plan on using software that the district has not adopted, you will need to get a parent's signature if you are sending any data to a third-party. The parent letter is linked below and can be edited in Microsoft Word.
