    Attendance”. Curriculum and Staff Development they are so talented. They

    adapted to the new technology flawlessly! Rich Crishock began with a

    demonstration of the proper setup of the stand to insure that the tablet is stable.

    He walked everyone through the complete process, start to finish. Everyone was

    so excited about the new technology and the amount of time it will save them.
