Preparing for Quarter 3

As we prepare for the end of Quarter 2 and the beginning of Quarter 3, please note these transitions within the Accelerate Education platform:

  • After Friday, December 18th, students will not be able to work on any of the modules from the first semester's courses
  • The new courses for the next semester will be available for review by learning coaches beginning January 1st
  • As we work through the transition of finalizing courses from the first semester and opening courses for the second semester, students may temporarily have both sets of courses showing up on their dashboard within Accelerate Education

Student View of Write Score Results

3-5 digital learning students who participated in the recent Write Score assessment may view their results online. Follow the Write Score Student View Instructions.

During the next quarter, your child's DL teacher will be using results from Write Score as a supplement for their writing instruction.

Each elementary school will host a Digital Learning Packet Pickup on Monday, January 4, 2021 from 10:30-11:00am and again on Tuesday, January 5, 2021 from 9:00-9:30am to distribute materials for Quarter 3. Parents, please plan to attend one of these pickup events to receive the necessary materials for your student.
