META has teamed up with TechGuard to offer cybersecurity awareness training. We highly encourage you to consider TechGuard or some type of security awareness training for your staff.
Ransomware attacks are on the rise in school districts across the nation. Ransomware is defined as a type of malicious software designed to block access to a computer system until a sum of money is paid. The malware is executed from a network connected device, i.e. computer, and then spreads to other network devices, i.e. servers, computers, etc.
There are several steps schools can take to protect themselves from a ransomware attack. One of the best starting points is to offer security awareness training and email phishing campaigns. The TechGuard S.H.I.E.L.D. training module contains a phishing simulator and nine core cybersecurity topics. This allows you to customize your training for your district and employees.

Zoom Video Conferencing
META and the Management Council have established a partnership with Zoom and Class Technologies (Class.com) to offer a video conferencing platform that is designed for teaching and learning, and is built on Zoom. The classroom management platform includes time and attendance tracking, grading, assignments, one-on-one engagement, and many other robust online teaching platform tools, all of which can be configured to communicate back to your LMS and gradebook/SIS. If online learning—whether primarily online or blended—will be an option for your community of learners, Class is a platform that we would like you to learn more about. The links below and the document at the bottom of the page provide more information. If you are interested in Class for your district, contact Missy Bauer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
