    New Summerfield ISD Obsolescence Plan

    Obsolete items will be donated to charities, auctioned to bidders, or disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner. Approximately ¼ of all district technology resources will be on the last year of the cycle at any given time. All resources will be appropriately documented in New Summerfield ISD inventory system.

     

    Student-Safe Email

    New Summerfield students in grades 7-12 who have been given parental permission for email will be issued an account with Google Mail.  Messages with inappropriate words are automatically sent to the administrators account.  This allows the administrator to deal with issues involving inappropriate content.
