To SCHEDULE TRAINING FOR THE SMARTBOARD for an upcoming trial, please send me an email at Cheryl Flannagan Please try and schedule at least a week in advance. If you want to play a DVD on our equipment, please come in and make sure it plays. Some videos will not play on our equipment if we don't have the software that file type requires. If you are using your own laptop to play it and you have tested it out then you don't need to come in if you don't want. If you wait until the day before or day of trial, we may not be able to assist you. If your case comes off, or you no longer wish to come in for training, please email to let me know as soon as possible. Thank you.  If you need any additional information feel free to contact Cheryl Flannagan by email at or phone at 385-4367.​
