Hello Families- While we are remote learning, you may use this website for finding documents regarding the textbook, assignments and log in information. Everything you need to finish out the year is on Teams and I will be using that as my primary platform. All assignments can be viewed and submitted on Teams along with instructional videos and office hours. Email me with any questions you may have.
I am available after school to give students a quiet place to work, retake or make up tests, or help with homework or classwork. Students are allowed to come and go as they please and can receive a pass to the library if they have to stay to catch the activity bus. I am available on Thursdays until 3:30. Other times may be available by appointment and email confirmation from me. In the event that I am unavailable on a Thursday, I will email parents to let them know ahead of time.
Microsoft and Issaquah School District are excited to announce that all secondary students will have access to the powerful tools that Microsoft Office has to offer. Office 365 for home use is available free of charge for all secondary students. Because we use technology a lot in this class, it's important that students set up their Office 365 account so students can use One Drive to store work in the cloud and use the same tools we are using at school at home.
With Office 365, secondary students will now be able to have the latest version of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Teams, OneNote, One Drive and Ourlook for district email on their personal computers so that they can take advantage of these tools at home. Secondary students can now download Office products on up to five personal devices (e.g.-laptops, home desktops, etc.)
To get to Office 365, secondary students and staff will need to do the following:

Students need to use Chrome or Firefox as their browser to use the online textbook. TCI does not interact well with Internet Explorer. There should be a ClassLink short cut on the desktop of school computers. ClassLink is a Launchpad/portal for staff and students to access online district curriculum and tools. ClassLink for most applications serves as a password locker, once you enter your username and password for TCI, ClassLink will remember it the next time you log in.
Students will access online curriculum materials for TCI via ClassLink.
Students log into ClassLink using their network username and their network password. Students accessing the materials through ClassLink will automatically be logged in to publisher’s site. They will NOT need to type in a TCI username and password.
Students must first log into a computer at school using their network username and password to finalize their network account for the new school year. Once this is done, they will be able to log into ClassLink from home. More information for parents and students can be found on the district website.

Students can log into Class Link and there is an Actively Learn icon. When using Class Link sign in using your school network user name, password and email address.

What is ClassLink? It is a web based “LaunchPad” to access online curriculum and tools in an attempt to address the problem of too many websites, usernames, and passwords. Through the ClassLink Launchpad students will find links to online curriculum and tools used in their classes.
How do students access ClassLink? When students log on to a computer at school there is an shortcut to ClassLink on the desktop. Students use their school network username and password to log into ClassLink. At home they can go to http://bit.ly/ISDclasslink and use their school network username and password.
There are two types of links within ClassLink:

Students will also be encouraged in my classroom to use these same username and password for access to the online textbook, this keeps things easier to manage for them.
