ACPS teachers, office associates, and other support staff engage in a high volume of email correspondence with families, colleagues, and school administrators. Currently, ACPS employees have access to 250MB of email storage through Outlook Exchange, the email application provided by Albemarle County Public Schools. In an effort to further support teachers and all employees, the Department of Learning Engineering, Accessibility and Design (LEAD) will adjust the storage limit of all email accounts to 2G. Doing so will expand email storage by 800%. This change will take effect on February 1.
In addition, the Learning Technology team will host a series of professional learning opportunities for ACPS teachers in February titled, Tips for Managing Your Digital World as an Educator. These classes will include email management strategies, techniques for sharing and storing files, and other skills helpful for teacher use of technology in the classroom. Participants will have the opportunity to learn more about Outlook Exchange, Google Drive, Google Backup and Sync, Learning Management Systems, digital communication, and storage. Whether you are new to tech or a digital expert, this PD will have useful resources and ideas for all educators. To learn more about this PD series, visit the ACPS Opportunities Catalog.
