Parents: some of you are wondering about getting set up with a parent account to monitor your students progress and grades for the programs that are online including Edgenuity, Accelerate Education, and Odysseyware. In the next couple of weeks we will start working on signing up parents with an account to monitor grades. Please wait to hear from us on this. Please do not email to find out when this will happen. Thank you for your continued patience. We have some other priorities I need staff to take care of first. In the mean time you can always have your student log in and show you the home page to see their progress and grades.

Good morning families,
Thank you for your continued patience. Please see the appropriate message for the age of your student below.
ELEMENTARY STUDENTS K-5: we found some mistakes in courses and are in the process of fixing them. If your student tried to log in and they couldn't access their courses, you've noticed courses missing that your student should have, or other issues around courses please bear with us while we work through fixing these tech glitches. There is no need to email staff to let them know your student's account has a problem. We are aware and working to fix it as fast as we can. The best thing to do is check back later in the day or the next day. All courses should be fixed by the end of this week. If you are still seeing an issue NEXT WEEK please email your student's teacher at that time.
MIDDLE STUDENTS 6-8: Many courses are assigned and we are working on getting all courses for all students assigned as soon as possible.
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS 9-12: As counselors are completing schedules we are working on getting all courses assigned to your Edgenuity and/or Odyssey accounts. Please refrain from emailing and asking when it will be done. You are welcome to keep logging into your Edgenuity and/or Odyssey accounts to check and see if the courses are their. Your courses will be ready for you on the first day of school next week 9/21 (and as many as possible before that date).
