During July and August staff will begin receiving technology training from Five Star Technologies in a variety of Google Apps, which will improve the way our teachers deliver instruction and manage information. Additionally, this will give us an opportunity to set up for E-learning days to mitigate the need to add make up days at the end of the school year.
