Chromebook Distribution

We are expecting our Chromebooks to arrive within the next week, and distribution to occur immediately upon arrival.

Every KP student will be given a KP device, that they will be expected to use in the building. They will need to bring the device home every day, and make sure to have it charged for the following day.

We will be distributing the devices during the school day. We do need all parents who have not already done so, to fill out the device acceptance form, and either accept or decline the device protection plan.

A device acceptance form, along with an optional device protection plan, must be signed VIA FamilyID. One form must be completed for each child. The form will ask you to choose whether or not you want the Device Protection Plan, you must sign off on the form twice regardless of your choice, the first is to accept/decline the Device Protection Plan, the second is accept the device terms.

ClearTouch

Below are some valuable resources for getting started with your new ClearTouch board.

The first set of links are videos showing you different ways that you can use the board, I do recommend watching them in order.

Below that you will find a link to the ClearTouch downloads page. There are several useful tools on this page that you are free to download and try, however, the important one we need EVERYONE to download and install is the Collage app. I have included a direct link for that as well, please download and install this app as soon as possible.

There are a variety of things we can do here.
You can simply change the grade.
You can change the grade and add the old grade to a comment. (you have to click the expand icon to show the other options)
Notice there is a red triangle on the grade to indicate you left a comment.
Alternatively, some people want to add another assignment called retake and drop the old score.
You all know how to enter an assignment, so I will skip that.
To drop the score, expand the extra tools, and click the DR
The first four letters here are simply indicators for an assignment and have no impact on the grade, they are for you to use as a reference.
Ch is for cheated and will calculate a 0 for this assignment regardless of the score entered.
X means exempt and Dr means dropped.  Both will ignore this assignment for this student regardless of the score entered. The only difference is the way they are visually displayed.

To fill a 0 for missing grades:

Expand the assignment and choose fill scores\comments

Next, click the check box, enter a 0 and change the dropdown to empty then hit fill at the bottom.

If you would like to manually enter a grade that is different from what the student has earned.

Click in the “Percent” box under Posted section and enter the new value

The letter grade will change automatically.

Please note, you must change the percent. Changing the letter grade will only change the letter shown in the portal and report card, and will not change the actual grade, which impacts the final grade.
