Did you know that you can see all student assignments in one place?

To see all assignments in one place, have your student sign into Google Classroom. Once in Google Classroom, click the "Calendar" button on the top of the page. You can now view assignments for all classes or just for one!

Additionally, we also encourage you to check out the "To-Do" button... this button allows you to see all work assigned, what is late, and what had been turned in. Power Parent Tip-Students can turn in work without really completing it. We encourage you to always check grades in PowerSchool to verify that assignments have been turned in. If you ever have questions about assignments being turned in, please ask your student to show you the completed work.


Classlink

In order to log into Classlink, students need to use the same login credentials as they would the Chromebook minus the @ckstudents.org ending in their username. Go to bit.ly/kssclasslink for a short video on how to log in. Once in Classlink, students have access to their online textbooks and PowerSchool among other resources


ChromeBook Not Working? 

For help using district technology at home, please use this document to “triage” issues prior to filling out the K-12 Student Chromebook Repair Request Form.  We’ve found that many reported Chromebook issues are not related to hardware, but can often be solved by trying a few other “tips and tricks”.


Here are some short videos of common problems: Tech Talk Videos
