Skyward is the district's new student information system. This is where student records are created and stored, attendance and grades are tallied, and much more. "Family Access" of Skyward is where parents can login and see their child's grades, attendance, schedule, report card, fill out back-to-school forms, and see teacher contact information. For the 2015-2016 school year, parents will have access to Family Access only.
itsLearning is the district's new digital learning platform. Look at this as a virtual classroom. Teachers design and deliver lessons through itsLearning, students can access and complete assignments, students can work together on a project at school and at home, and much more. For the 2015-2016 school year, teachers and students will only be able to access itsLearning.
Together, Skyward and itsLearning make up LinkEd. When parents log into LinkEd, they are viewing Family Access. When students and teachers log into LinkEd, they are viewing itsLearning.
NEXT year (2016-2017), when parents log into LinkEd, they will view itsLearning and see their child's virtual classroom.
