#GoOpenVA is a collaborative initiative that enables educational entities throughout Virginia to create, share, and access openly-licensed educational resources (OER, also known as open education resources). OER are free digital materials that can be used or modified to adjust to student needs; they are openly-licensed unhampered by many traditional copyright limitations. These materials are housed on a cloud-based system. #GoOpenVA encourages all Virginia educators and learners to create, share, and use digital resources with the end goals of providing equitable access to great learning materials throughout the state, and supporting new approaches to learning and teaching for all Virginians.

Through this initiative and in partnership with the Office of Educational Technology’s #GoOpen campaign Virginia seeks to become a national example of the power and promise of open educational resources.

#GoOpenVA opens to all on January 24, 2020.

Cybercrime is getting more serious by the month. Hackers are getting smarter about tricking people into clicking on fraudulent links or opening up malicious attachments in emails. It can happen to you personally on your own computer and email as well.

Because of this, Clarke County Public Schools, in conjunction with the County of Clarke, has decided that it is very important that everyone participates in mandatory comprehensive security awareness training. We need to defend our organization against cybercrime, and security is everyone’s job. You are the last line of defense in keeping our organization safe.

Click on Uncle Sam to watch an introductory video on how to get your training started. And yes, we get the irony!

This website serves as a Community Learning Resource Hub for the most used technologies within Clarke County Public Schools. You will find images or logos of each technology with the name, an instructional video, and further resources underneath.

Local technology plans help school divisions identify resources and strategies to promote instruction and learning while increasing safety and efficiency. The overall goal of technology policies and plans is the successful integration of technology to support student learning and operational practices.
