Teachers: As part of the school division’s model of continuous improvement, we are evaluating Blackboard Learn to determine if it continues to meet the division’s commitment to quality learning. Thank you to everyone who participated in our initial survey (May 25-31), which helped us gain insight regarding current use of Blackboard Learn.
