Virtual Learning Assignments during school closure--UPDATED 3/19/20
VIRTUAL LEARNING TECH SUPPORT WEBSITE: https://www.dekalbschoolsga.org/virtual-learning-support/  
 
Message for Stakeholders (Parents/Guardians, Students, Teachers, Staff, and Community/Business Partners):

Greetings,

Teachers will provide students with a virtual learning assignment that is content-specific and relevant beginning March 16, 2020 until further notice. Each assignment will be aligned to the standards and what the students are currently learning. Assignments may involve reading, writing, conducting research, performing mini labs, completing practice problems, taking notes, and/or answering questions. Virtual learning access will be made available to students in grades 1-12 through VERGE. 

Pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students will receive electronic copies of their virtual learning assignments via their parents' email addresses on file. 

Please continue to visit the school district's website for current information.
 
Students are able to access VERGE via the Clever Launchpad, which may be accessed from the student's Chromebook or from any Internet accessible device by clicking here. Students access the Clever Launchpad by logging in with their S# (ex. s1234567) and their unique password that they have previously created. Parents may login using the same S# and password.

Students are also encouraged to utilize USATestPrep for EOC and AP exam preparation. Students create their own logins using the school code, which is available from their teachers. 

Additional online test preparation for AP exams, SAT, ACT, and more is available through the Gale Testing & Education Reference Center (TERC). This valuable resource includes full-length practice tests for AP exams, GED, SAT, ACT, PSAT, GRE, LSAT, MCAT, TOEFL, U.S. citizenship, and more. TERC also includes English/Writing and Math tutorials. For assistance with TERC, please visit the Database Tutorials page. Students access TERC using the Gale password (available from teachers), and then create their own account. 

The Library Media Center has a wealth of information that students may access online. Most databases are accessible via the buttons & widgets running down the right-hand side of the page. For more specific databases by subject and topic, students should refer to the resource pages in the left-hand menu. Passwords are available from teachers. Again, please visit the Database Tutorials page for assistance using many of the databases.
 
UPDATE 3/16/20
Parents & students, please be mindful that there may be glitches as we all learn to use our digital resources in this unprecedented environment. If a document on a teacher's VERGE page prompts the student to "request permission to view," then the document may have been uploaded from a teacher-only folder. Requests to access teacher-only folders from students will be denied. Please email the teacher directly using the email address in the Staff Directory.

UPDATE 3/18/20
Please click this link to access the Virtual Learning Tech Support website: https://www.dekalbschoolsga.org/virtual-learning-support/ . There are some helpful videos about logging in.  
 
We understand that VERGE is overloaded at the moment with so many school districts moving to virtual learning. Please be patient with the process. Oftentimes, simply refreshing the page or logging out & then back in again will help. Also, it is best to login to VERGE through the Clever Launchpad. The Tech Support website has video tutorials on how to login from your personal device, if you do not have a Chromebook. The Clever Launchpad also has links to Office365, to check your school email and to access apps such as Word, PowerPoint, and Excel, and has links to Google Drive. Remember: even if you are using Google Drive, any emails will still go to your Office365 account.
 
Information about what to do if you do not remember your password is forthcoming. 
 
UPDATE 3/19/20
In order to request tech support, please use the Virtual Learning Tech Support website: https://www.dekalbschoolsga.org/virtual-learning-support/ that was posted yesterday. Click the bottom button on the left menu, and then click the "Request  Virtual Learning Tech Support" button in the middle of the screen. Complete the form, and someone from Tech Support will call you.
 
Some of your questions may be answered by viewing the videos in the left menu. Also, please remember to email your teachers with any problems, using the email address in the Staff Directory
