PD IS HERE!

IMPORTANT NEW INFO!

Online Access: IMPORTANT!

If you plan to attend a PD session, please log into Clever and click on the McGraw-Hill link.


Once in your account, you should see Reveal Math products(s). You may need to click the link shown in the picture at right. You may also see a course like "Integrated Math I" that appears to have an Algebra 1 book. This is OK. The book had to be assigned to current classes.


The products you will see are based on what you taught during the 2019-2020 school year. You may not see all courses yet. This will be taken care of when Infinite Campus is updated. As long as you have online access to at least one class that you will be teaching, you should be fine for the PD.


Please email us if you do not see at least one new title in your ConnectED account. For help with Clever, see below.

ALEKS info: Important!

Please make sure you know your ALEKS login information before attending the sessions. The presenters will not be able to obtain this for you during their session. Please email us ahead of time if you need to recover your username or reset your password.


If you are new to ALEKS, here are some quick things to know:


  • At the beginning of each school year, we create new classes for you and enroll students.
  • After this initial "bulk upload", teachers can move students from one class to another or add new students.
  • Teachers with admin access in each building can move students from teacher to teacher.
  • To move students from one school to another, please contact Steve Hiner.
  • Middle school students (except accelerated) start in RTI 6, RTI 7, or RTI 8. These are intervention courses. Teachers can move students into regular Math 6, 7, or 8 courses as they feel appropriate.
  • High School auto-enrollment varies from class to class (see guide below).


We have a CCS-specific guide to help you. Please visit the link below:

New Teachers

We have a number of new teachers joining us this year. They are welcome to attend PD sessions. If they do not have working CCS accounts yet, they will not be able to sign up in PDS. However, we can provide the links to the sessions they would like to attend.


Please note that we may not be able to provide stipends for teachers not currently in our system.
