Teachers in Polk County Public Schools have several options they can use to deliver online instruction to students. If your child's teacher uses one of these options, here is some helpful information to get started.
Polk County Public Schools is making a transition from several online learning platforms to Schoology, a Learning Management System (LMS) that will be used both for eLearning and inside our classrooms. More information will be posted here as it becomes available.
Watch the video to learn more about Schoology.
Additional resources for students
If your teacher is using Google Classroom, you'll want to know how to use the rest of Google's G-Suite apps. These are locally known as "myPolkApps" so you'll hear both terms used. The video on the left gives a quick introduction to G-Suite for students.
Install Office 365
Microsoft Office 365 applications work just fine inside a web browser. However, every student in Polk County Public Schools has the privilege of installing Office 365 on computers and mobile devices at no charge. Check this video to see how.
