All Goochland teachers have a new tool to use to give quick online assessments with their students.  This Pearson Education product is called Schoolnet.   Our elementary grade level leaders and lead teachers gathered this afternoon after students left for home to have a training from Pearson with some special in-person training from Amy Spoonhower, our GMS science lead teacher. All teachers will be trained over the next few weeks and begin using this software to create and give short quizzes, classroom tests and district-wide marking period assessments.  This initiative that supports data driven decision making became a reality for Goochland Schools when Jen Bocrie to the lead for our technology team to write, win and now implement a $75,000 grant.
