TECHNOLOGY NOTE FROM MS. ROBYN
Hello iCademy friends and families.
Now that we are into the start of the 2022-23 second semester we need to start looking toward the 2023-24 school year and what new fun and exciting things that brings to us as learners. For the 2023-24 school year, we will be migrating away from a Microsoft environment and into a Google environment.
What does that mean for students for the 2022-23 school year?
That means if there is anything in students’ Microsoft accounts such as projects, homework, or papers that students would like to save then a copy of the document needs to be saved to a personal account prior to the last day of school June 21st. We are excited for this transition and all of the possibilities it will bring to our students/families and look forward to walking side by side as learners and educators.
