The first day teachers were working remotely, we had our teachers call each family by phone and ask about their access to a computer, internet, and printer. They also asked if they had been able to sign onto our LMS and Clever.
Thomas Ho
40:13
could we get URL for Columbus City Schools doc?
Corey Crawford
41:53
You're right, Troy... messaging has been on point and clear.
Dan Carroll

Here’s the doc from Columbus: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1c-i88WhESZD-yQ972Hs7MCIYy28Lnp6E2-kEyKExSyM/edit
Dan Carroll
43:31
Since it’s a Google Doc - should be easy to copy & modify!

Justin (& others) - please ask those questions in the Q&A!

Troy - who is creating the packets that are being distributed to the families when they are picking up their meals?
Troy Suarez, Ph.D
46:36
They should be distributed to sites by tomorrow. Admin will have an icon in clever too with the packets
Angela Seiferd
46:57
perfect, thanks!
Troy Suarez, Ph.D
47:20
T&L is creating the packets
Stephanie Bikowski
48:00
Troy will admin need to make these copies?
Troy Suarez, Ph.D
48:04
It is up to your Admin
Jessica Peters
48:06
agreed @Betsy!
Troy Suarez, Ph.D
48:24
Yes, they copies will be digital on Clever and sites would need to print them off
Lisa Kirschten
48:30
Thanks for the info Troy
Joseph Locke

Levy County is sending weekly packets of instruction for elementary students along with weekly food supplies utilizing the buses on their normal routes. Those not on buses, can pickup at schools. Secondary students will be using their chromebooks for distance learning.
Troy Suarez, Ph.D
50:31
Rachel, contact your bilingual aid, they will be supporting
Dan Carroll
50:42
@Rachael - Have you seen the app TalkingPoints? It sends messages to families & does automatic translation. I haven’t used it - but have heard good things!
Corey Crawford
52:44
Great idea to divide these areas up. I know our elementary teachers will need a lot of support in using Edsby.
Thomas Ho
54:46
How do we give principals Clever roles to see Edtech Analytics?
Susan Collins
55:33
How are schools distributing elementary student badges digitally? Our schools closed before we had any plans in place.
Clever Inc.
56:21
Thanks for your questions! Please add them to the Zoom Q&A module.
Dan Carroll
56:25
So many people - teachers, administrators, parents - are stepping up in incredible ways. We are so amazed by what we’re seeing here at Clever!
Erin Garbutt
56:29
Agree Great job HCSD!
Victoria King
56:54
With packets how are they to be graded?
Amanda Williams
58:11
I love hearing how you distributed your devices... we are prepping to do that next week.
Troy Suarez, Ph.D
58:23
Grades are up to the teacher. Most teachers will create and use their own materials, but can use and accept these if they want to
Mellissa Alonso
59:08
So proud of our first phase…many more phases to come. We have been working around the clock because learning never stops. We are continuous learners in uncertain times. I am so blessed to work with such great colleagues.
Jessica Peters
01:00:04
For our RSPs, OTs, SLPs, ELL teachers, etc., we have Zoom set up for them and they are doing a lot of 1-on-1 and small group meetings. We are also providing programs they are used to using in a differentiated way at home.
Dan Carroll
01:00:30
I love that approach, Jessica!
Hilary Ludlow
01:01:12
She beat ya to it ;)

When I log into Clever and look at the Free Trials filter under apps it does not seem to include all of the apps listed on the Resources at Home page in Clever. Study Island is one example.
Jessica Peters
01:02:08
Yes, office hours are something all our teachers are doing, Jeremy. Kids and families love them!
Dan Carroll

Here’s how to set up Zoom & Clever: https://support.clever.com/hc/en-us/articles/360040514352-For-Teachers-How-do-I-use-Zoom-through-the-Clever-Portal-
Jessica Peters
01:02:43
Also, I’m setting up office hours with vendors next week for our teachers and families. Trying to get myself out of the way. :-)
Amanda Williams
01:04:19
Dan, ty for the Zoom & Clever link... do admin from Hills. Co. to request accounts, or is that for teachers to set it up?
Carrie Dexter
01:04:20
custom sections are great for SPED
Dan Carroll
01:04:37
Amanda - setting up the Zoom account is something Troy’s team would do - it’s not for teachers.
Amanda Williams
01:04:44
ty
Carrie Dexter
01:04:56
will the file override the role change though?
Jeremy Crouthamel
01:04:59
@Jessica - Great to reconnect :) I love the idea of district level folks also providing those Zoom office hours. Knowing where to go for help is critical for everyone during this time!
Carrie Dexter
01:06:45
should we add the parents email as an extension field?

Amanda Williams

Spectrum is partnering w/us and I <think> that they were trying to deploy hot-spots for those w/out any internet services in their area. I’m not 100% on all of it though.
