In an effort to conform to state law mandates and communicate to our families how their child’s information is being shared, Jefferson Jr/Sr staff will openly communicate which technology tools (software, apps, extensions etc.) are being used as learning tools by our students. We will post a database on the Jefferson Jr/Sr website on the Family Resources tab. Below is a current list of tech tools we plan to use with students for the 2020-21 school year. You can access our Family Resources page for additional tech tools we add throughout the school year to meet our students’ learning needs. Please contact Sandy Kauyedauty, Digital Teacher Librarian, if you have further questions.
