1. Welcome, Matt

In welcoming Matt we also farewell Alma LoreauxWe thank Alma for the great job she did last term as our CSO, and particularly her work with Teacher Dashboard.

2. Teacher Dashboard for Schools in Term 4
We're thrilled that 35 Schools have expressed interest in implementing TD this term. 25 of these have already booked themselves into the Term 4 schedule. There are still slots available in the schedule for later in Term 4. Implementation kicks off on on Monday October 14 with 4 schools attending the first Data Setup sessionRead more ...

3. New support process
As more schools come on board with TD we're implementing a new support process to deliver timely help and support for TD Managers. Read more ...

4. Student Email Privacy
As per our communication on August 16, we've made some changes regarding privacy restrictions and student emails. School Principals will decide on the level of access teachers have to the emails of students in their classs(es) and this can be managed locally by the School TD Manager. Read more ...
