  • System Announcements on the intranet (www2)
    Hope this is helpful:

    Often when there is a system wide issue with wcpss software or if you are having log in issues, it will be posted on the intranet front page (www2.wcpss.net).  You can check there if you have trouble rather than try to find someone to ask about it.  Then you will know if you need to report it or wait it out.

    Below is today's www2 post:

    Wake ID and all associated applications (i.e Google, EASi, Canvas, etc.) are temporarily down. Technology Services is aware of the issue and working on a resolution.

  • PDP Data Survey
    I have just ended my first full year as an ITF and now I have to complete my end of year PDP. If your don't mind, will you please fill out this survey for me?  A similar one was sent to you at the beginning of the school year.  I need data to compare to my SMART goal on my PDP.  Your responses will give me the data I need as I approach my final end of year evaluation review.  The data is purely to help ME learn and grow in my roll and to help me advocate for our school's needs based on yoru answers.

    Even if you did not take the survey at the beginning of the year, please consider taking it now. I don't think the survey will take you more than 5 minutes.  Thank you for your time.

  • We can help
    Andrea and I are presenting at a 2 day Convergence conference in April.  Don't forget this is just one way we can help you....

    Promoting Learner Agency Through Coding

    Coding has a profound impact on modern education. The more we encourage students to code, the more opportunities we are giving them for their future. This extended session will help you realize how you can create a learning environment where your students will thrive in their communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and creative skills, as well as develop their algorithmic thinking through choice and a Google Classroom platform with only a facilitator's skill set for coding. Experience what it feels like to be a student in a coding environment, learn how to code, manage, and start a coding club in your classroom, and leave hungry to see it work for you.

  • Cute WakeID Help Animation
    This animation was made by a fellow media/tech person to help us with the new wakeid. 

    Also realize that you have access to all of the student's logins in the school and can access, look up, and reset passwords as needed.

  • Science Kit Refill Orders
    All classroom teachers got an email from me about sending me your science kit refill needs for NEXT year. The inventory check lists can be found in the folder here. You can print your lists and give me a hard copy of your needs (don't bother counting and reporting how many items you have) or you can just look at the inventory list and email me what you need.

    3rd: Please include Owl Pellets

    Remember: A few years back some kits moved grade levels.  You may need to check a different grade list for your kit (ex: changes is listed in 2nd but taught in 3rd and solids and liquids is listed in 1st but taught in 2nd)

    Please have your needs to me PRIOR TO March 31.  I will need several hours (broken up into several days I am sure) to create an order from your feedback.

    Thanks!
