Dear PYNQ Bootcamp Participants:

We are rapidly approaching this year's PYNQ Bootcamp, set to officially begin on July 20. As you know, this event will be conducted completely online via SVVSD's WebEx service.

To prepare for this event we have a few reminders and action items for participants to consider.

If you have any questions about the following items, please contact:

Axel Reitzig, Innovation Coordinator


Schoology is SVVSD's Learning Management System and will be utilized throughout the event. All SVVSD students already have access; for non-SVVSD students, first create a Schoology account at this link

NOTE: If your district uses Schoology as well, you DON'T need to create a new account.
