Nespelem School District is going Google...
In 2009, our school district needed to cut the budget; we were paying a lot of money for a clunky website and email. It was not easy to modify and personalize, yet the cost was high.
After research, we discovered Google Apps for Education (GAFE). I began using Google with my students, and we began a transition to Google Apps. Our students enjoy the collaboration and access -- anywhere a computer is connected, students have access to their work.
The Technology Committee conducts its meetings online through Google Docs editing and and discussion.
To ease transition for staff, I developed a course, website, and assistance to introduce staff to Mail. Calendar, and Blogs..
Please contact me for information. Ms Edwards
