Additionally, faculty members can expect a planned maintenance window on Blackboard’s SafeAssign.  This maintenance will take place on July 26th from 10:00am – 12:00pm.  Blackboard does not anticipate any downtime for paper submission, during
this deployment window papers will not be processed. Papers submitted during this deployment window will be queued, and reports will be delayed until after the deployment has completed.  It is recommended to not allow submissions during this time as a precaution.
