Transform 2020? What is that?

We are all asked by Central Office to complete the Transform 2020 Survey. The results of this survey are used by the District to determine our school system's technology needs and to complete the District's Technology Plan required by the Alabama State Department of Education. We need 80% teacher participation and 100% administrator participation. A huge "Thanks" to all those who have completed this survey already. If you haven't, you may access the survey by using the links below.
