SharePoint Server scheduled to Go Off-Line June 30th, 2011

Throughout the school year, we have been encouraging teachers to move their websites and files from our SharePoint servers and onto Google and Moodle. Through visits to the PDC and independent efforts, you should have been able to successfully migrate your website and files by now.
We understand that many faculty and staff still rely heavily on SharePoint to store and share documents and moving several years worth of files proves to be a daunting task. Please bear in mind that the district’s SharePoint servers are failing and are time consuming and cost-prohibitive to maintain. Google and Moodle provide on-the-go access to your files, providing dynamic collaboration tools for you, your colleagues and students.
The Technology Department encourages you to formulate a plan to move ALL of your SharePoint files to Google or Moodle before the school year ends June 30th. We will continue to work diligently to keep the SharePoint servers online throughout the remainder of the school year. District 219’s SharePoint system will be discontinued at the end of the school year.
