    Annual Technology Inventory – Schools

    Deadline: January 5

    The annual technology inventory project will begin on Tuesday, January 8. This year we have made a few changes to the process to improve the accuracy and accountability of the district’s technology devices. Schools will still be responsible for identifying Inventory Managers (IM) and updating the inventory; however, a team from ITD will be scheduled and dispatched to each school to assist each inventory manager with the data collection, verify accuracy, and answer any questions.

    Please see the milestone chart below:
