Infinite Campus Updates
Good morning, over Fall Break, Infinite Campus will be updated and this update contains some changes for teachers. Campus documents are attached that explain in detail. Please forward to teachers.
Ø Campus Instruction - the menu to the left has been updated and is now called ‘Control Center’
· From the Control Center screen, you will see all your sections listed, attendance links, score assignments links
Ø Planner – will be removed after 17-18 school year
Ø Reports (Planner) – will be removed after 17-18 school year
Ø To switch between Campus Tools and Campus Instruction, that area has moved to the link called ‘Instruction’…located right above the Control Center menu
Ø Creating assignments – the set up screen has been reorganized
· The new set up screen now allows a teacher to align an assignment to any section they teach (not just ‘like’ sections)
· On the Assignment Editor screen the Teacher Notes and Portal Description boxes have been removed by Campus
Account Settings and the Log Off links - moved to the top right corner in the ‘person’ icon
#1 - Review the document located at https://www.smore.com/eqcys. PLEASE PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THE DROP OFF AND PICK UP PROCEDURES. You must drop off the cart after use (between 2:15-2:30), and carts need to be picked up the DAY BEFORE they are used (between 2:30-2:45)
#2 - YOU MUST have a system in your classroom to determine what kid is using what Chromebook. As I have mentioned previously, I would just number your roster and require students to use that Chromebook. Why? When we need to track down what happened to a broken computer, or pull a log of what a student accessed, we have to have the Chromebook cart # and computer #.
If you have any questions about any of this let me know.

Counselor Sign Up Process
Counselor Request Forms are now 100% electronic. Students can sign up to speak with a counselor from any device that has internet access. Chromebooks are set up in the office for students to make a request. Teachers: you can save this link on your computer or ipad, and students can sign up directly from your room! As always, if a student is in crisis they will be seen by a counselor immediately.
Child Abuse & Duty to Report
An individual who has reason to believe that a child is a victim of abuse or neglect shall make a report to DCS or local law enforcement immediately. This applies to every staff member in the building. Please review the Child Abuse & Duty to Report information by clicking here.

The high ability identification process is outlined here. This process applies to current 6th and 7th grade students; with placement decisions for the 18-19 school year. Recommendations can be made from now until January 12th. If you have questions, please see Kyle or Sarah.
