A bit of information to start with, about the programs we use.
CONVERGE is a program that can be accessed at any computer, tablet, or smart-phone with internet service. All students have a log-in that they use EVERY SINGLE day. So they will/should know it.
REMIND: Is a tool, that sends text messages from teachers, to remind parents and students of upcoming events, homework or tests. You can sign up for text notification with the REMIND codes above. Text the message ‘@ whatever your code is above’ to the number 81010 (this goes where a name or phone # would normally go if you were creating a new text). There are different REMIND codes for different classes, teams, schools or groups. You only have to do this one time per code (@....)
INFINITE CAMPUS : Is online and will enable you to see your student’s grades, assignments and attendance. You will need a special code, that you can pick up in the school office, along with step by step instructions on how to set it up. Once you do this, there is also a phone App you can download & set -up . You will need this code GXVLFP.
