Learning Platforms - Parent/Student Tutorials
 
The following programs have been recommended for classrooms as a means to organize and share learning resources with their families that have internet and device access:
  • Grades K-5 - SeeSaw or Class Dojo (may also extend to Gr 6 students; specifically those in a 5/6 split environment)
  • Grades 6-12 - Teams (may also extend to Gr 5 students; specifically those in a 5/6 split environment)
Families who do not have access to an internet connection or a device for their child, or those who prefer non-tech options, will continue to be provided with hard-copy packages. Please contact your child’s teacher(s) directly to make this arrangement.
 
Tutorials and supports for each of the platforms are available below:

In our continued effort to support families, the MVSD ICT Team has launched a Tech Support Request platform for parents/guardians. This platform provides support to help facilitate the access, navigation, and use of our recommended learning platforms: SeeSaw, Class Dojo, and Office 365 (Teams). Our technicians can assist with tutorials of these platforms as well as facilitate login support for those needing user name and passwords for Office 365.
 
Please select your school to access the applicable Tech Support Request Form:
 
*Please note that, due to the confidential nature of student login requests, a technician will reach out via phone to authenticate any username/password requests before proceeding by using the contact info provided to individual schools.
