Introducing the NEW Teacher Technology Resource Page

With all the new tech skills and digital tools educators are navigating this year, we wanted to offer a one stop shop resource hub for the WPS 259 educator community. The new site provides starter guides, tips, tricks, and more.

Our new site is built into the INNOV8 site, so it's easy to find through Rapid Identity.

  • Visit the INNOV8 Site
  • From the menu at the top - Click My School Remote Support

Have you Seen Teams Magically Disappear Lately?

Are you part of a Federated Team that you no longer need? Or perhaps you've joined a Team for a day and need to leave it?

PLEASE DO NOT DELETE the team. This causes everything in that team to DISAPPEAR including students, files, any work turned in, the Class Notebook, and even other teachers who are in that team. Eek!

There is some good news, however. We can retrieve a team for up to 30 days after deletion. Whew!

What you can do if you need to leave that team:

  • Ask another owner to remove you from the team
  • Hide the team from your list.

PS - Also, please do not activate a team you do not need. If you do so accidentally, please MUTE all members and turn OFF all permissions. Thank you 🙂
