Q. What platforms will my child be using?

A. Google Classroom/Google Meet - This is where teachers will be. 

Edgenuity - This is where the coursework will be.

Office 365 - Email will be a major method of communication between teachers and students.

(Please see the student login information drop-down menu item for student websites, login ID's, and password reset information, if needed.)

Q. How many classes does my child have?

A. Most students in the 7th-12th grade at Capital Area will have 5 courses for a full schedule. Most students will have a combination of synchronous (live, screen-to-screen) and asynchronous (independent) courses.

Q. Where can I find my child’s course schedule?

A. All students can log into StudentVue found on the Lansing School District website to see their full list of courses. Your child will be able to see ALL courses (synchronous and asynchronous) on their Edgenuity dashboards as well. Edgenuity is the platform where your child will complete their coursework.

Q. What time do the courses take place?

A. Start times of LIVE courses can be seen in the titles/headings of each Google Classroom course tile, located on the Google Classroom dashboard. Students will need to attend their live synchronous course and receive directions from their teacher on coursework expectations in Edgenuity. Students can start on their asynchronous immediately! Although asynchronous courses have more flexibility, students are expected to complete at LEAST one assignment daily. Plan to spend about an hour a day on each asynchronous course. The school will call to inform a parent/guardian should we not see assignments completed daily.

Q. Will my child have LIVE support for their asynchronous course(s)?

A. YES!!!

All students taking asynchronous courses MUST attend their STUDY HALL live meet, which they will see on their Google classroom dashboard. This is a live work session where all students can receive support. All students taking asynchronous courses will have access to attend live office hours for one-one-one questions or needs of support. Students will find office hours located on their Google classroom dashboard.
