Term 4, October 2017

Dear Colleagues

With Term 4 upon us, the existing Pilot 2 schools commenced the rollover to ICON eAdmin at the end of Term 3. It is expected that all the Pilot 2 schools will be live by mid-November.

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

PROGRAM UPDATE

ICON eAdmin training for Pilot 2 schools

Administration staff for the Pilot 2 schools completed their training on the eAdmin applications and the automated data migration system on 19 September. Further refresher training in eAdmin was held on 20 September and 26-27 September.

Training for the administration staff for the five new primary schools implementing ICON in 2018 commenced on 24 August and will be completed by 9 November.

ICON eAdmin change management workshops for principals

Principals from the Pilot 2 schools attended change management workshops in preparation for the next rollout of ICON eAdmin.

The workshops focused on two key questions for principals leading the implementation of ICON in schools:

  • What knowledge and skills do principals need about eAdmin to sponsor the change in the school community?
  • As sponsors for change, what conditions or processes need to be in place for the effective implementation of eAdmin?

Software licence agreements - reminder

A reminder that the recommendation is for schools not to enter into long-term licensing and maintenance agreements for ICON-related software products. Instead, it is highly recommended that schools look to enter into one or two-year agreements only (with rolling one year options) for software licensing that ICON will replace.
