New employees will be required to sign the statement during their in processing at the SAU office.
How do I get help with IC (Infinite Campus) ?
If you have questions or need your password for Infinite Campus reset you must contact your Building IC Coach or firstname.lastname@example.org.
What should I look for when buying a Chromebook?
Any Chromebook from such providers as Amazon, Walmart, Staples, Best Buy, etc. will work. Models dependent on your individual preferences. The School district does prefer HP models as they seem to be a little more “hardened” for student use. Touchscreens are very useful, but are more expensive and more sensitive to damage. Warranties vary and good to know what they are for the model you plan to purchase. Purchasing a spare power adapter is helpful too.
What about software and hardware purchases ?
All software and hardware purchases must be submitted to the CIC for technical approval.
