Salem Tech Update for 2019-2020

We're excited to soon begin another new school year and we have some great updates to our Salem technology. We were blessed to be able to purchase new Chromebooks for K-4 students. We're excited to be using our Chromebooks in new ways with some updated apps. We have two new document cameras that will be used in our classrooms.

For those who missed our School Welcome Night on Monday, here is a link to our Technology Policies and Procedures document for your reference. A recent addition to the document includes a summary of our Chromebook monitoring and filtering processes.

Please contact Mr. Scharf if you have technology-related questions. Happy School Year!
