TEACHER TIP OF THE WEEK!
- Please make sure that you have posted the Ohio Attendance widget on your course homepage if you teach Ohio students. Also remember to remind Ohio parents to submit their attendance logs each week (when you send your weekly or bi-weekly email).
- Please make sure that you are continuing to submit students for truancy following the new process. If a student needs to be evaluated for truancy, please notify their advisor.
- Learning Environment Tip: Did you know that you can email students without submissions in a dropbox? Within each dropbox folder is a button titled “Email Users Without Submissions.” This allows you to email students who have not submitted that assignment directly. This is a great way to remind students when they have missed a dropbox deadline!
- Our next Enrichment Day is Wednesday, 11/20 in Paragon & Social Studies classes. Please post a news item in your classes on this day telling students to check their Paragon or Social Studies class for their activity for the day.
