Parent professional development trainings coming soon
Learning at home has been new for all of us, and we want our parents and students to have a successful experience. Next week, Sheldon ISD will introduce a new opportunity for families to learn how to use the Sheldon On Demand platform with Parent PD.
Beginning August 24, every Tuesday at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., families can tune in for parent and student training sessions at sheldonisdremote.com. From assistance with Skyward and Google Classroom to using Zoom and an iPad, each week will offer resources and tips for our families.
Help spread the word so families feel confident with learning at home with Sheldon On Demand.
