KHS Instructional Technolgy Group Meeting

We are creating a campus committee that will briefly meet as needed to discuss technology integration on our campus. The goal of this group is to provide a system of support for teachers incorporating technology into their instruction. Our first meeting will be on Tuesday, January 20th (staff development day) at 2:00 in the library. If you are interested in being a part of this group, please let me know. We would like to have representatives from as many departments as possible attend.
