All lessons and assignments will originate in Google Classroom. Students will have a classroom for each teacher. This includes special area teachers, GATE, reading and math support, and special education teachers.
Google Classroom should be accessed directly from the Google Classroom app (iOS or Android) or a Google Chrome web browser.
Students will log into Google Classroom using their NHSD Google account. Every student has an NHSD Google account. A student's Google account is their NHSD network username followed by @students.nhsd.net. Their Google account password is their NHSD network password.
Hint: The NHSD network username and password is used by the student to log into computers at school. This information is also now available under the student's name in the parent/guardian's PowerSchool account.
Students will be invited to join a teacher's Google Classroom in one of two ways:
- Students will see the class listed in their Google Classroom dashboard and can click "Join."
- Students will be given a class code and can enter that code by clicking the "+" from their Google Classroom dashboard.
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 will use Zoom for live instruction and to hold office hours. 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. Students sign in to ClassLink using their NHSD network username and password. Google Chrome is the recommended browser if using ClassLink on a computer. 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.
