This episode is Part 2 of a two-part series where we explore the topic of implementing new software and technologies in K12 education. Schools are always looking for the latest and greatest tools to make an effective impact on student learning and administrative processes. Once a need for new technology is evident, it’s important to conduct both a comprehensive evaluation and implementation process. What are the challenges that districts face when embarking on an implementation project for new technologies? What stakeholders need to be involved from the beginning to ensure that all voices are heard and that all needs are met? How does a school not only prepare for successful implementation but ongoing success with these new technologies in the years ahead?  This episode features special guests Lisa Montrief from Monroe County Intermediate School District in Michigan, Kim Allein from Pioneer Union Elementary School District in California, and Russell Graham from Nebo School District in Utah. If you are an Infinite Campus customer and want to continue to conversation, join us on the moderated forums in the Campus Community.
