As staff members move to the new Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e staff laptops, the only way to safely store and back-up files is in Google Drive. There, in addition to Google’s server infrastructure, School District 21 also has three additional services providing back-up and security for both our productivity as a school district as well as for legal reasons. These include Google Vault, CloudLock, and Backupify.

Each District 21 school is named after an American author, and learning and literacy is at the center of our Professional Learning Community. The Modern Pen provides a collaborative location in which District 21 teachers can come together to learn the skills that will enable their students to learn new skills and to understand concepts at an even different level than before.
