Updates from Principal Stewart

Reminder - Schoology is the new home for Distance Learning where kids, teachers, and parents will go to look for assignments. Parents and students will use this technology to not only view assignments but to help stay in touch with the teachers.
Resources for Teaching Schoology to Parents and Students - The LCPS office of Educational Technology is developing resources to teach students and parents how to navigate Schoology and complete common tasks. Parents will be provided access to a Parent Experience in Schoology course. The Ed Tech team will provide each school with information about how parents can access the course, and will have that information for the school community on 8/28/2020.
Likewise, students will receive information about how to access the Schoology experience by 8/28. Resources from LCPS are being developed to teach students how to navigate and use Schoology. The Ed Tech team will provide a short intro video and will also be providing short tutorials and practice activities that teachers will be able to take and use in their courses.
