Virtual Locker to Google Drive Transition for LMTSD Staff

All  LMTSD staff is encouraged to move their H drive to Google Drive because accessing your network files via virtual locker will no longer be available at the end of this school year. To access your files remotely staff will have to use Google Drive. This will also impact access to inboxes & outboxes.  Staff is encouraged to use Google Classroom to share files with students.

I created a Smore with information and helpful links, handouts, videos, etc. for you to use as a resource for the transition.

7. Click on Flex Editor and edit and copy everything from the page and paste it into the Content Page. On the content page, you will not be able to change the background color and the font type, you will however be able to change the font size and color among many other options (At this time you may want to open up the second tab and open up your web page via the faculty directory. This will allow you to see what your page should look like so that you can make changes to keep the look of your original page)
