Tools for Teachers...

  • TEKS App: View the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills in one app! A great reference for teachers, parents, and students to easily read and understand the standards. Quickly find and search standards by subject, grade level, and key word.

  • Lead4ward App: Get quick and easy access to formative assessments, snapshots, field guides, and released STAAR analysis tools.

Just so you know...

  • Teachers can now print from Chromebooks!
    Cloud printing has been deployed to all staff CB logins. To print, simply go to File > Print, click change to select the PrintQ for your campus, and click OK. OR, click the 3 little dots in the top right hand corner, select printer, and change the destination to campus PrintQ. Scan your badge like normal and pick up your print job.

  • Since it is testing season, the district has set all of the chromebooks to stay logged in all of the time. So even when a student closes their CB, they are still logged into it. Whoever opens the lid next will have access to that first student's stuff who was logged in. Please make sure they are logging out before they close those Chromebooks.
