ONLINE LEARNING AND SAFETY

It's always important to talk to your kids about technology use, and as we shift to a remote learning model it's an important time to talk to your kids about online safety and cyber presence. Common Sense media has a lot of useful tips, lessons, and links. https://www.commonsense.org/

What technology systems are required to support distance learning in CUSD and what technology assistance is available to our family and students?

With regard to CUSD’s core technological and communication systems, we offer the following to describe how we will manage and implement this DLP.  CUSD will continue to use the same channels it employs for normal day-to-day communications with parents, students and faculty/staff. All of these systems are remotely accessible and will function in an emergency situation, such as this.  The table below describes these systems:

CHANNEL

AUDIENCE

DESCRIPTION & ACCESS

Email or Edulink

Faculty, Staff, Parents, Students

Email or Edulink (automated phone calls) will be used for all major communications and announcements.  Faculty/teachers will also use email to communicate, although they will use other platforms to interact with their students as well.

PowerSchool

Students across elementary and secondary schools

PowerSchool will continue to be the platform used by many teachers for communication and lesson plans.

Google GSuite

Students across elementary and secondary schools

Some teachers may choose to use the GSuite platform for communication and lesson plans.  Here is a parent guide for Google Classroom.

Zoom

Students across elementary and secondary schools

Zoom is an online video conferencing platform that allows for group meetings, hosted by teachers. Some teachers may choose to use this platform. Minors do not and should not create a Zoom account.  You do not need an account to join a meeting. Teachers will send a Zoom invite code to join the meeting.

How will CUSD ensure that students have access to these tools from off campus?

Students in grades TK-12 will have the option of checking out a CUSD Chromebook if they do not already have a device at home.  With the implementation of the CUSD DLP, it is our priority to ensure that every student has access to a device, if that is what is required in order to have access to the DLP curricula.  If you do not have a device at home, please complete the following form to request a CUSD device:
