Google Classroom Sync - Update

Background

On November 12th, CTA (our Synergy host) had to disable the feature that lets teachers sync assignments & scores between their Synergy grade books and Google classroom classes. This was due to a communication protocol change that Google made without any advance notice. Google's change prevented all teachers from logging in to TeacherVUE.

Resolution

Edupoint released an update to accommodate the change. This patch will be installed the evening of Friday, December 20th. If you use the classroom sync feature, please read our recommendations for re-establishing the sync process without creating any duplicate assignments.

(Dec 8th) RESCHEDULED = IT Maintenance "Down Day"

Due to the Thanksgiving holiday weekend falling on the 1st weekend of the new month, we have rescheduled our regularly scheduled technology maintenance "down-day" to be this Sunday, December 8th.  We reserve the first Sunday of each month for network/system maintenance to avoid interruptions throughout the month.


We always try to keep interruptions to a minimum. Please plan accordingly for potential interruptions to TTSD Wifi, Infinite Visions, email, Google, Synergy and other TTSD systems on Sunday.

TeacherVUE Access Restored

Access Has Been Restored


Issue: Users were briefly unable to access TeacherVUE on Monday and early Tuesday morning due to an issue at the ESD.

Resolution: As of 7:45AM, Tuesday morning access has been restored for all users.  However, at this point, Google Classroom integration has been turned off to help with troubleshooting the source of this problem.
