Enjoy some treats from MHCRC
Focus Group for Your Voice Initiative
Here are the details regarding our first meeting on Thursday, Oct. 29. I have been asked by the Mt. Hood Cable Regulatory Commission (MHCRC) if they can use some of our time to conduct a focus group with teachers to obtain technology-related feedback. Normally, our sessions will be from 12:30-3:30 p.m. but because of the focus group, we are ending at 3 and the focus group will be from 3:30-5 p.m. I would greatly appreciate your participation if you could stay. MHCRC has awarded our district significant grant monies in the last several years (their award funded the VoIP project), so it is important that we are able to provide them with input. You will get paid for those one and a half hours and there will be drinks and treats.
