Term 3, August 2017

Dear Colleagues

Preparations are now underway to roll out ICON eAdmin to the second group of primary schools by mid-October. As part of the rollout, these schools will be piloting the new automated data migration system.

I am grateful for the significant contribution of the school principals and staff from the first and second group of schools in working together with the ICON project team as we continue to rollout ICON.

We look forward to continuing our work with the implementation of ICON.

Stephen Elder
Executive Director
