Zoom is a cloud-based service that offers meetings and webinars, and provides content sharing and video conferencing capability. Zoom works on an iPad, laptop or desktop. Teachers are not required to use Zoom but many will use the resource to hold live instruction, webinars and meet-ups, or post pre-recorded lessons. Students will be invited into Zoom by their teacher. No login is required although mobile users will need to download the app for iOS or Android.
ClassLink is a single sign-on portal giving students access to resources and programs they have already been using in school including ABCya!, First in Math and Keyboarding Without Tears.

ClassLink apps are also available for iOS and Android.
If using a mobile device, please download the ClassLink app as well as any other apps used by the student's teacher. On district iPads, these apps are available to download without an Apple ID from the Self Service app. The Self Service app is the district's version of the App Store.
Freckle is an online tool for elementary-aged students that offers differentiated learning in reading, math, science and social studies. Students take a brief assessment on Freckle that allows them to participate in a learning path designed specifically for the learning level. All K-4 teachers will assign practice for students in Freckle to replace small group guided instruction that typically occurs in the classroom. Freckle is accesible by web browser. An app is also available for iOS. Please do not log into Freckle until your teacher invites you to do so and provides additional information.
