  • 12. Your homework
    • Please select at least a person from each department to attend and prepare the following information:
    • Textbook used for classes and availability of ONLINE content for textbook. If possible, investigate if there is a fee for website usage (annual fee, fee to use certain areas of the website or enrichment resources provided online)
  • 13.
    • In classes where there is no textbook or the textbook is out of date and no adoption is foreseeable in the immediate future, suggest ONLINE content suitable for the class – and costs, if possible.
    • Computers purchased by the district will have the Microsoft Office Suite. Suggest any other productivity software that may be needed for student projects.
    • Where no ONLINE content is available, suggest necessary software to implement the curriculum. This would apply to multimedia classes that use Adobe, Typing or other software not available online.
  • 14. Your requests
    • Will the school be a Mac school or a PC school?
    • Should we be writing grants for hardware, software?
    • Do we have to stay with the district or can we be an independent school?

    • Why can’t we use personal laptops on the guest network?
    • Why does the wireless coverage have blind spots? When will they be fixed?
    • Why is the bandwidth so poor?
    • Could we get portable DVD (USB) players for computers?
