Steps for the 1st day of Remote Learning

1.) Students log in to Microsoft Teams, according to the Centennial Bell Schedule (see below) with their West Ada email and district provided password - District link to Microsoft


2.) Teachers will take attendance in each class period and provide synchronous or live instruction, group work or guided instruction via Teams. Attendance will be marked in PowerSchool.


3.) Assignments will be provided via Teams and turned in via Teams. Grades will be posted in PowerSchool for parents to access.


During the first week of school and while we are in red, students are expected to login to Teams DAILY, following the bell schedule in order to access classroom instruction and materials.


If you don't see all your classes in Teams, be patient. Teachers have to "activate" Teams to make them visible. They are hard at work making this happen! We thank you for your patience.

  • We are following the High School Bell Schedule (see below). You should be logging on to Teams, according to the bell schedule.

CLASS SCHEDULES

We are running on the quarter system for High School. All students have 4 classes and will then will get another 4 classes in 9 weeks. This is how all West Ada High Schools are running their schedules. 4 classes is a full load for quarter one.

LAPTOPS & HOTSPOTS

EVERY student will NEED a district laptop regardless of whether or not they have their own device. Personal devices will NOT work on school WiFi in the event that we are in yellow or green. School issued devices come re-imaged with district approved apps to easily access classroom materials during remote learning.


WHAT IF I MISSED DEVICE DISTRIBUTION?

  • Centennial will be open from 7:00am-3:00pm on Tuesday, September 8th for those students who could not make it to device distribution last week.


WHAT IF I STILL NEED A HOTSPOT FOR WIRELESS INTERNET?

  • We have a limited number of hotspots available for students. Hotspots will be distributed to students on a first come, first serve basis on Tuesday, September 8th from 8am-3pm, while supplies last.

TECH. SUPPORT

  • District devices outside the school environment
  • Support of personal Wi-Fi networks
