2. Teacher Dashboard for Schools in Term 2
We now have 111 schools using or registered to begin using Teacher Dashboard. This includes 36 of our 38 secondary schools, which is very pleasing. There are still slots available for Primary Schools in the schedule for Term 2. Implementation kicks off on on Monday May 12 with 4 primary schools attending the Staff Training session. Read more ...

3. New Feature - TD & Google Sites
TD now gives teachers access to any Google Sites that a student either owns or can edit. We will be progressively rolling out this feature to schools throughout Term 2. Once enabled, teachers access Student sites by clicking the "Sites" link to the right of the subject folder links:

Finally, we'd like to again thank Lenva Shearing, Mark Gregan and Tony Kong from Hapara. Their continued support has been critical in the successful roll out of TD over the last 9 months.
