CLEVER
 
What is Clever?
Clever is an easy way for your child to log in and learn with all of the online programs they use at school. With their own personal portals, students can learn with resources selected by their teacher and district.
Schools use Clever so students can have all of their digital resources in one place. Clever also eliminates the need to remember multiple usernames and passwords.
 
How can my child log in to Clever?
Your student can visit clever.com/login to find their school and log in to Clever with their school-provided username and password. Here is a video on how your scholar can log into Clever: https://youtu.be/nb5Y8RWQowA
 
OFFICE 365
 
Students can log into their school accounts at Office.com, where they’ll have access to Microsoft Teams, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and so much more.
 
Microsoft Teams can be accessed online or downloaded to a home or mobile device. Click the link to explore the guide that enables your student to get going with Teams right away: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/get-started-in-your-class-team-6b5fd708-35b9-4caf-b66e-d8f2468e4fd5
 
How does my student turn in assignments using Teams? Can they check their grades in Teams?
Students can turn in their assignments by navigating to the Assignments tab in the General channel of their class team, then selecting an assignment. They can attach any appropriate work and select Turn in.
