LMS Important Update:

SABA Cloud will be replaced by Performance Matters

"Importnat Communication about your Professional Learning Record"

We are in the process of replacing Saba Cloud. This decision does not come lightly given the impact and process required in changing the system, however, having spent time with many different stakeholders, the Department of Professional Learning, including a team of representatives across the district have determined that Saba Cloud is not meeting our needs in professional learning. We are excited to announce that Performance Matters will become the new platform used to manage and record professional learning. See additional information here

As part of the process please adhere to the following:

  • Do not enter or register for classes/courses occurring on or after May 31, 2018.
  • Currently scheduled classes/courses will remain as is and will be closed at the end of the 2017-2018 school year.
  • Don’t panic! Data from Saba Cloud will not be lost. We will take proper steps to ensure that all learning will be transcribed for future use.
  • Be sure to print your transcript as part of your own record keeping. This should be done prior to May 31, 2018.

The Department of Professional Learning will support everyone through this transition. Please look for additional communication over the next few weeks.

For summer registration, we are asking you to use the google form link below. We will be tracking your hours and putting this into the new system used.
