School-Based Staff Device Confidence Checks - Round 1

Over the course of this week, in identified groups, Baltimore County Public Schools will perform “confidence checks” of devices. These checks will enable staff to ascertain whether or not a device has been impacted by the ransomware attack. In the event that your device was affected, a different device will be provided.

On Monday, November 30, and Tuesday, December 1, 2020, Baltimore County Public Schools will conduct Round 1 of these checks on devices of identified staff listed below. School-based staff groups identified below will have their confidence check performed at the high school identified for their school. In subsequent rounds, additional school-based staff members will be identified for confidence checks.

Prior to arriving at the high school during assigned time period, staff members should:

  1. Use a piece of tape to label the device with: first name, last name, and school name

  2. Make a sign for the dashboard of the car with: first name, last name, and school name

All staff must be wearing a face covering. Please remain in your car with your face covering on, and await further instructions.

If you are unable to get to your assigned high school on the given day at the given time, your principal will work with you to determine a future day and time.

Preschool - Grade 2; Special Education Teachers; Related Service Providers; Principals; Assistant Principals, Designated SAT Coordinators and AP Coordinators for only 12/5/20 SAT sites
