Well, the training will begin tomorrow. Tomorrow, our tech department will be sending over someone to teach our secretary, me, and some teachers how to do our elementary report cards online using Infinite Campus - welcome to the 21st century. One of the things I had to do in the last day or 2 was find a couple of teachers who were interested in helping pilot the project. I certainly had one fourth grade teacher in mind because she's pretty good with technology and certainly willing to learn something new. When I asked her, she jumped at the opportunity. The same thing happened when I asked one of our first grade teachers. Now, I was surprised when I asked a kindergarten teacher if she'd like to be involved. Her response took me by surprise a little because she didn't want to do it. She had her reasons, but I really didn't think they made sense. Oh well, luckily, another kindergarten teacher wants in, so we're all set.

I'm very excited about the project and hopefully I'll have something good to say about it in the next couple of days after we get into the project.

    IMC... I'm very curious to read what your impression will be of Infinite Campus. We have been using Infinite Campus in our district for almost two years now, and the teachers... well... let's just say we've got our opinion. There is a great deal of angst, partly due to the fact that the decision was made on high, and partly because most of us were proficient users of EZ Grade Pro which had many more features, was much faster and much, much easier to use.

    What I'd like to know is if you used an electronic grade book before, and if so, how you would compare the speed, usability and functionality.

    Thanks for the great blog, and good luck with your training!
