This month, the Microsoft Education Customer Engagement and Support Team is releasing an updated version of the well-received Back To School Kit that was initially released in July 2020. This kit provides high-level guidance for Educators K12, Leadership and Special Services teachers on how to use Microsoft technology to prepare for their upcoming school year.
In addition, members of the EDU Engagement team will be hosting four new webinars to walk you through each aspect of the guide. Please see the overview below and join the Enable Remote Learning (ERL) Community for continuous updates or to ask us a question. See you soon!
