TechConnect was a big success.  Over 140 people took part, including students from several  SW Portland schools, Mayor Hales and the Chief Information Officer for Portland Public Schools. It was a major undertaking for our small committee.  It was the first of what we hope will be several equity-related events from the Schools Committee.  More coming as we debrief from the event.

Happy Holidays!  See you next year.
Next meeting:  Thursday, January 21, 2016 – 7 to 9 PM – MAC Room 4.
