Posted by Amy Sharp in District Resources  |  Post a comment

You may have noticed the new Teams tile in your Microsoft app launcher, or waffle.  Teams is a digital hub brings the many Microsoft apps that we love together in one place.  Within Teams, there are several options for collaborating and sharing.  Class Teams will have all of the functionality of Classroom, and much more.  Additional teams will be available for staff collaboration as well.    

Please be patient… We share your excitement about getting started with Teams in the new school year!  Remember that the Technology Department is working tirelessly to ensure that our implementation of this amazing tool is as seamless as possible.  You will be notified via email and the website when Class Teams are created and ready for use.  

Class Teams may be created and deleted several times over the next few days.  In an effort to protect your valuable planning and instructional time, please wait for the notice from the Technology Department alerting you that the application is ready.
