This year, many districts have started implementing the eduphoria! Suite due to packaging with the Region 20 Service Center. There is a specific application for every major department that runs the backend of workflow and school support in our schools today.
Facilities & Events is a building and inventory management part of the Suite. Help Desk is the ticket system for technology as well as a reporting tool for total cost on investment your district can use. PDAS is the evaluation tool most districts use for teacher evaluations. Formspace allows you to create online forms and track the workflow behind the path of where the form goes for approval. And the curriculum tools available in Aware & Forethought make it easier for instructors to track student progress through assessment data and lesson TEKs online.
These are great tools together for overhauling workflow in a district, but what about training? How will you train your Maintenance office to implement an online Facilities calendar and inventory? How will you train department and campus secretaries to move from paper-forms to paper-less? What are you doing to get your staff plugged-in to develop and share best practices statewide?
What if there was training offered to share the best practices of what districts are doing to implement and change district-wide workflow for the age of mobility?
Kerrville ISD is offering a one-day workshop to engage the people who will be using eduphoria! Suite. This workshop promises to train the people who will be managing the tools on the backend in order to make the experience as easy as possible for those who interact with it on the front-end. This isn’t a “techie-training.” This is THE training you want to send your HR support staff to, your curriculum people to, your Maintenance people to, and anyone who is ready to take the step to move their district into the 21st century using eduphoria!
Our training will take place at the Y.O. Ranch Hotel & Conference Center in Kerrville, Texas (http://www.yoresort.com/) which is only 45-minutes from the San Antonio International Airport.
Cost per participant is $65.
