Here is a draft of the letter some of your principals will be receiving today regarding their ARRA purchases of Smartboards, Mimios, etc. I will be CC'ing you when it actually goes out.


Today's PPT -- you may use it to get info on your upcoming training. Elementary folks can actually just pull out that 1 slide to use in your real training that pictures all components. Remember -- all our training SHOULD look the same! ( I will go back ASAP and make sure it pictures the EXACT doc camera, cart, and LCD projector you'll be receiving in your buildings).
