The Public Schools of Northborough and Southborough
District Reopening Plans - Fall 2020

"Ten Schools, Three Districts, One Community of Learners"

Technology Information

Our District is committed to maintaining a core set of digital tools to support in-person and remote learning. Among these tools are learning management platforms. All educators will use Google Classroom in grades Pre-K-5, and CANVAS in grades 6-12. District leaders, school leaders and teacher leaders have collaborated to establish consistent approaches on how we use these platforms across grade levels, courses, and schools.

In addition, the District has purchased a system-based Zoom license, which will allow the District to enforce the use of security settings for all meetings (waiting rooms, encryption, passwords). All staff have received guidance and training on how to securely use Zoom and control access to meeting rooms in order to minimize known challenges.

The District will offer families opportunities to learn more about how to use these digital tools at the beginning of the school year and will continue to offer support throughout the year.
