Check Student Progress in Edgenuity Family Portal - 4/22 Update
To check your students progress on coursework in Edgenuity, please request access to Edgenuity Family Portal. It does two things:
1. You can get daily or weekly emails on your childs progress
2. You can get access to family portal to check on your students progress anytime.
Please complete the form below to request access to Edgenuity Family Portal. This will allow you to monitor your child's progress in Edgenuity. Access will not be immediate, and could take us 24-48 hours or longer to setup depending on number of requests. Once you have been setup, we will email you information on how to access the portal.

We are planning pick up & drop off days & times for next week to pick up & drop off athletic/cheer/dance/pe/majorettes gear, medications, and UIL awards. Please be checking email & listening for calls from school with more detailed information about days, times, and procedures.

New content posted - 4/7 update
Also, a general reminder that students should be checking Google Classroom & Edgenuity. A daily check on Google Classroom would be good just in case teachers have a new resource or guide based on student feedback as the week goes on. Students should be working in Edgenuity Daily.

WJHS March 24, 2020 Information
This SMORE will lay out the WJHS plan for continued instruction online. Please read the information below, and visit the links to find out more information to help your student engage in WJHS online learning.
We will be utilizing Edgenuity and Google Classroom for instruction.
Keep in mind that your students have been using Google Classroom for most of the year, and so they will already be familiar with accessing information through Google Classroom. We will continue to use Google Classroom as the primary means of communication between students and teachers, as well as to deliver content for some of our elective classes.
Thank you and please bear with us as we work through setting up a system to keep learning going for students at home.
Thank you again,

Example Student Daily Schedules
For courses in Edgenuity grades will NOT be posted in Skyward until the end of the Nine Weeks, or until we return to campus based instruction.
Students will be able to see their grade through Edgenuity in real time as they are working in the program.
Electives instruction delivered through Google Classroom
Grades will be posted in Skyward one grade every 1-2 weeks, with first grade being posted by FRIDAY APRIL 3, 2020.
Teachers will communicate to students through Google Classroom at least once a week for all courses, regardless of whether the instruction is delivered through Edgenuity or Google Classroom.
Fastest way for you as a parent to contact a teacher or administrator is through email. Teachers will primarily contact students through email. For your convenience see email list of all staff below:
Teachers may reach out to you to discuss student progress, or to check on your student. Teachers may be calling you using contact information in Skyward.
