The Parents' Guide to Google Classroom
A special thanks to Matt Miller, author of Ditch That Textbook, for preparing this great guide to the Google Classroom. This will provide parents with a quick overview of the Google Classroom Learning Management System (LMS). This is the primary LMS used in Carteret County Public Schools. You will find classrooms from Kindergarten to High School utilizing Google Classroom.
One thing to note is the sign-in process will look different for CCPS' students. CCPS utilizes the NCEdCloud for single-sign on (see video on NCEdCloud on this page)

Google Hangouts Meet
This is a tool that is used for the virtual check-in part of your student's day. Teachers, school counselor, reading specialist, and other school personnel can host a quick chat session or video session with these tools. This is a tool where you need to have a conversation with your child about safety. Make sure students know not to accept invitation from anyone other than his/her teacher to video chat. We have limited the product, but always know that there are loopholes to every setting. Parental guidance and communication with your child is essential to make sure your child is safe online at anytime. Click the image to the left to learn more.
