TO:  Division Superintendents

FROM:  Steven R. Staples, Superintendent of Public Instruction

SUBJECT:  Free Software Upgrades to SketchUp Pro Available

Trimble has once again granted free software upgrades to their SketchUp Pro software to Virginia school divisions. The software upgrade codes allow downloading the latest 2014 version in various configurations – Windows, Apple, stand-alone computers, and lab computers. Any division that uses the codes must have a single point of contact who will be responsible for distributing codes to the appropriate staff members.

Many divisions are already using this software and have automatically been sent the updated information. However, if you have not used SketchUp Pro but would like to begin, please contact Jean Weller, instructional technology specialist, by e-mail at or by phone at (804) 225-2825.
