********PERFORMANCE TASKS ARE NOW AVAILABLE ON CANVAS********

Teachers CAN get to the Canvas Performance Page and download their Spring PT’s. R & E are still waiting for a few more Spanish versions of some tests and once these are posted we will open up the Data Director permissions so scores can be up-loaded. We hope that will all be available by next Friday 4/18.

Single Sign On and Device Management

In the coming school year, teachers will see substantial improvement in the area of product integration. We will begin using a platform called Stoneware which is supported on iPads, PCs, laptops – pretty much any computing device. This will allows students and teachers to keychain all of their accounts under a single sign-on. There isn’t anything students will have to do – the policies for single sign on will come from our student information system where usernames and passwords for students are already assigned.
