TOP TECHNOLOGY TIPS FOR STAFF





1. Quarter 4 Report Cards: 

It's about that time of year again - time to post grades! 
 
Elementary school report card window opened this week.  Secondary school grading window opens June 8th.  This year, the process is the same as always, but there are a few modifications due to Distance Learning.  As always, there is a knowledgebase article available to support you during this time.  Specific links to your grade level grade book and grade posting can be found here:





2. Using Grid View in Google Meet these days - and all of a sudden it stopped working correctly?


Grid View has recently updated their extension - you'll need to update it to get it working correctly again. 
 
1. Click on the GRID icon in the upper right corner of your Chrome Browser and select "Please Install Chris Gample's official release..."(bottom)


2. And click on the "Add to Chrome" button

EMAIL SCAM: "Are you available?"

ALL STAFF:

There are several versions of the "are you available?" email message being sent to TTSD from what looks like your principal, but comes from a NON TTSD staff email account.  Please always:
  • Be aware of the SENDER's email address before you respond
  • If it seems like an odd request - contact the individual directly (phone, text, start a new email message to them, etc.)
  • Purchasing requests via email for gift cards are not allowed.
  • If you think that you found spam or a phishing email, please use the "Report spam" button at the top of Gmail.
