Apple Classroom available for iPad this fall

Great news!  Apple Classroom will be available THIS fall for all teachers and student using iOS version 10.3 or higher.

Apple classroom is a classroom management tool for teachers. We will be using the adhoc method for creating classes.  Teachers will create a class, a code will be created and students will use this unique code to join the class.  Highlighted features of Apple Classroom are: ability for the teacher to view student screens, share files, lock screens and share the same screen to all students in the class.

Check back for links to TTSD knowledge-base articles on how to set this up in late August.

Tigard-Tualatin School District NEW website...coming mid-August

TTSD currently uses Blackboard's Edline product to host the District and school websites.  Blackboard has announced the end of life of Edline in the later half of 2018. As a result, TTSD decided to migrate to Blackboard's current solution, WCM (formerly Schoolwires).



This transition will take place over the summer.  The new TTSD website and school websites will debut mid-August. ALL existing school URLs will remain the same and current content will be migrated to the new site. Training for web-masters and teachers will begin in August and continue throughout the school year.

Stay tuned for further updates..
