Description

On June 19, 2018 Bartlesville Public Schools will switch its email and calendaring services from Microsoft Exchange, Outlook, and the Outlook Web App to Google's online Gmail, Contacts, and Calendar applications.

This will greatly improve email and calendar access on Chromebooks, should reduce appointment synchronization issues with mobile devices, and should eventually improve issues with spam and phishing emails.

However, it will require us all to learn how to do a variety of tasks with Gmail, Google Contacts, and Google Calendar that we are used to doing in Outlook, apps linked to an Exchange account on mobile devices, or the dreadful Outlook Web App.

All certified staff who are available and interested are welcome to sign up for trainings on the new services. Please bring your fully charged Chromebook, but we will have spares on hand if needed. There will be six sessions from 5/31-6/4 to choose from:

  • Thursday, May 31, 8-10 a.m. for PreK-8 certified staff
  • Thursday, May 31, Noon-2 p.m. for PreK-8 certified staff
  • Friday, June 1, 8-10 a.m. for all certified staff
  • Friday, June 1, Noon-2 p.m. for all certified staff
  • Monday, June 4, 8-10 a.m. for any staff member
  • Monday, June 4, 2:15-4:15 p.m. for any staff member

The training is worth 2 inservice points and the above sessions will count toward the January inclement weather or April suspension make-ups.

Additional sessions will be offered 6/20, 8/1, 8/2, and on pre-service days 8/14 and 8/15
