Google Classroom & Learning App Help for Parents
Virtual Learning Resource
The following videos and slide decks have been developed by our teachers to provide students and parents with information that will help them navigate specific products that will be used by all teachers this school year:
- Clever: a Single Sign On System
- Google Classroom: the District’s Learning Management System
Additional help can be found on the IT Help and Resources page.
Please view the Parent Tech. Guide below created by Ms. Salchak, Title I Teacher with Belle Valley Elementary.
An Introduction to Clever: From a Student Point of View
In this video, you will see how a student can log on to our Single Sign on System. Clever allows students to sign on - one time, which then makes many other products they will be using during the day. What a student sees on their Clever site is dependent on their grade level.
