Your Computer Doesn’t Care If You Lose Everything - Back It Up Right Now!
All employees and staff of Johnston Public Schools are strongly encouraged to periodically back up any and all files that are stored on their school issued device.
Johnston Public Schools recommends that each individual utilize his or her Google Drive. Alternative methods are also beneficial (USB Drive, other cloud storage applications, etc.…).
Johnston Public Schools is not liable for any employee or staff data that gets lost, deleted or damaged for whatever reason and JPS is not responsible to backup user data. Each person is fully responsible for his or her data.
All web based applications (Aspen, Keystone, RIDE, etc.…) are maintained and secured by the individual software vendor and are not included in our backup plan and are not a concern within each person’s backup schedule.

There is a TED App on the AppleTV and a free App in iTunes for iPad and iPhone.

As I periodically do, here is a little more
information on some wonderful tools everyone has access to through
Google Apps for Education. I am always a huge fan of free cool things.
