Sioux City Schools sets the standard in Iowa with Live@edu

This fall, students and teachers in Sioux City, Iowa will be in for a pleasant surprise when they arrive back to school.  Sioux City Schools selected and is deploying Live@edu email and collaboration services to approx. 7,000 students and teachers.   While Google was also evaluated, Live@edu was selected "because of its expanded options and familiarity to students."

Of particular note, they are taking a thoughtful approach to their rollout by providing students with a class about this software, email etiquette and acceptable use. 

"It also gives our teachers a means to engage in different ways, a richer ability to collaborate when you’re not in the classroom," explained Sioux City Schools Technology Director Neil Schroeder.
