Student Learning Management System (LMS) - Seesaw (K-2), Google Apps (3-5), Schoology (6-12)
Each grade uses a tool called a Learning Management System to deliver course content to students. Each product we use is designed with the level of students in mind. Therefore, we utilize a number of different systems based on the grade of your child. In addition to eSchoolData, these systems provide information to students of upcoming assignments. They are also a resource for students to view coursework and class materials assigned by the teacher.
Student 1:1 Devices - Chromebooks (Grades K-12)
The school district utilizes Chromebooks as student devices which aid in the delivery of curriculum for our students.
Student Information System (SIS) - eSchoolData
ESchoolData is a great parenting tool. For direction on creating an account, choose the eSchoolData information in this same parent area. Course grades, report cards, attendance information, and lunch balances are available in eSchoolData.
Online Payments - EZSchoolPay
EZSchoolPay gives parents the opportunity to make lunch payments online. A parent account can be created by choosing the registration button at the login window. Lunch balances are visible in EZSchoolPay.
Mass Notifications - BlackBoard Connect
The Blackboard Connect emergency notification system is used to contact parents when a child is marked absent in the classroom, for school cancellations, for notifying parents as quickly as possible about an emergency situation, and also for occasional calls from building administrators related to a specific building.
