Staff Leaving Frisco ISD

If you are leaving Frisco ISD, there are some things that you will need to take care of prior to your last day of work.


Everything you need to know technology-wise can be found at https://docs.google.com/document/d/16sV6vR5IkJzVRf-Shv4ytJI3NkQPxQbFdWz-Ln45RqE/edit


I wanted to give you plenty of time to take care of these things if you need to!

Button of the Week

The idea of presenting information in very small pieces makes sense for today's students. You know attention spans are short. You know that when you watch a video, anything over three minutes seems to go on forever. This badge is all about trying to narrow down a concept to something small enough that you can tackle it in 60 seconds.


There is no right or wrong way to create your video. Do a screencast with screencastify, make a video with your doc cam, use a white board app on a tablet or just make a video with your phone!


Check out the example below! Oh, and if you go a couple seconds over, that's okay!

Moodle Courses- Move to Canvas?

THANK YOU to those who went into Moodle and labeled your courses already or who have contacted me to move them. The list below is actually very much shorter than it was originally! If you have one of the courses below, please go into Moodle and label it or email me if you cannot do that.

Label them:


  • MOVE- if you want me to move it for you now
  • MOVED- if you already moved it or if I already moved it
  • KEEP- if you want to use it till the end of the year
  • DELETE- if you don't want the course or anything in it moved to Canvas


If one of your courses has the wrong label, please let me know! Mostly if I moved it too early and you want me to redo it!

If one of these is your course, please let me know what to do.

Technology Checkout Sheet

You will have a Technology Checkout Sheet that you will turn in to me in addition to the LTHS End of School Signature Sheet that you turn in to your appraiser. Every staff member should complete this sheet.


Some of the items on my sheet may take some time to complete, so I am going to go ahead and share that with you now so that you can get started.


You must turn it in to me in order to get my signature on your LTHS End of Year Signature Sheet.
