District #47 Solution Team-Solution Center
For the 2016-2017 school year I will be working with Glacier Ridge and Indian Prairie Elementary Schools. At the end of each week, I will send out an email that highlights my schedule for the upcoming week, iCoach website updates, goodies to explore and upcoming PD sessions that will be offered.
While my default days are M/W Glacier Ridge, T/TH Indian Prairie and F CORE or alternating schools, you can complete my Coaching Request Form to set up a meeting with me! If I have these requests in prior to Friday (the week before) I can plan my schedule accordingly (and adjust my days and times as needed). So, plan ahead and be sure to request so we can maximize my coaching potential!!

K-2 Teachers: Classroom iPads
Exciting news...all K-2 classroom teachers will be getting 4 additional iPads! You will still keep your current 4 classroom iPads, these will be in addition to those, meaning you will have 8 classroom iPads (and your teacher iPad would make 9!). This is part of the D47 iPad Replacement Cycle.
NOTE: These iPads are not currently installed with any apps. For any free apps or those that are ones you already have as a part of your teacher account, you can log into the App Store and install or download those apps. For any paid apps that are part of the school accounts, I will work with you and our new Mobile Tech to get those apps on your devices in the near future.
Student Google Accounts
All students have access to a Google Apps for Education (GAFE). This includes the use of Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings and much more. Students in K-5 do NOT have access to Gmail.
Username: firstname.lastname@example.org (##### is the student ID number)
Password: red12345 (No password change necessary)
Username: email@example.com ((##### is the student ID number)
Temporary Password: s47 (will be prompted to reset password upon login)
New Password Template
For Indian Prairie, students will use: wolves47# *replace # with student number in class
For Glacier Ridge, students will use: bears47# *replace # with student number in class
Example: If a student is number 5 in class, the password would be wolves475 or bears475. If a student is number 19 in class, then the password would be wolves4719 or bears4719.
