    Daily Checklist for Online Learning **NEW** 

    We have created a Digital Learning Daily Checklist to help parents and students better understand the steps students should be committed to following each day for online learning. Schools are temporarily closed, but learning continues!

     

    Smart Guide for Online Learning

    Parents and students can use the Smart Guide for Accessing Teams to help you as you log on and get familiar with Microsoft Teams and Digital Learning.

    If you need assistance with technology issues, please call the help desk at 727-588-6060.

     

    Getting Familiar with Microsoft Teams  

    This week students need to familiarize themselves with the new learning platform Microsoft Teams to prepare for online instruction that begins on Monday, March 30th. Please visit the Digital Learning Section on the PCS Website https://www.pcsb.org/digitallearning to learn more about the process to access Microsoft Teams. See the attachment which answers FAQ.  PCS Digital Learning.pdf 

    Once students have logged into Teams, they should be able to view their classes.

    All students need to log in and respond to a question posted by teachers which allows us to take accountability of who can access the system. 
    We asked that all students complete this task for their classes by noon on Thursday, March 26th.
