 iReady and/or Khan Academy

 

Davidson County Schools will be participating in I-Ready/Khan Academy this year. One class period a week will be dedicated to I-Ready/Khan Academy in Math. These assignments are classwork grades. Students should also work on I-Ready/Khan Academy at home, as this is the ONLY way to receive extra points on assessments. Students will be responsible for maintaining an I-Ready/Edgenuity log for each quarter. Lost logs will NOT be replaced.

 

For Math 1 students (Only) must complete their I-Ready lesson plan assignments by January 24, 2018. This will count as a major grade. Khan Academy will replace I-Ready beginning 3rd Quarter. Khan Academy is an online resource to help prepare students for their Math 1 EOC.

 

Google Classroom

 

Google Classroom is a great way to keep in touch with what your student is doing in the classroom. It is also a great way for students who are absent during the school year to get caught up on work that they may have missed. Daily notes, Classwork/Homework Assignments, and answer keys will the uploaded continuously throughout the year. If you are wanting to join your child Google Classroom, please contact me for the Google Classroom code.
