Online Learning Opportunities

The links below provide online digital learning opportunities for students. Find your grade level.

AUSD takes the safety and security of students very seriously; however, when your student works from home or on their own device, they are not protected by our district’s usual Internet filter. Please monitor your student’s online use.

AUSD Learn @Home Opportunities

The information on this web site will be updated as needed.

Welcome to AUSD's Online Learning Opportunities Portal.

The opportunities listed to the left are primarily for the time between March 16 (when in-class instruction was suspended) and April 6 (when formal distance learning will begin).Families are also welcome to use them to supplement the distance learning going forward.

In the week between March 30 and April 3, students and families will receive information about their class schedules from their teachers and principals.

Please be sure to see our Distance Learning Support page for information on how to access and use our Aeries, Google, and Zoom platforms, as well as links to mental health resources for families. Translations of those materials are being developed and posted as quickly as possible.

 

The following are  policies and protocols for an extended suspension of classroom instruction:

 

Digital Connection:  Device use varies by grade level. Younger students have less screen time, with older students having more robust digital online learning opportunities. There is no expectation that a student will sit for hours in front of a screen.

 

Accessing Content: Every student has an AUSD Google account.  Their login is the first 3 letters of the first name, first 3 letters of the last name, and last 3 digits of the student ID.  For example, John Smith, ID 123456 would have a User ID of johsmi456@ausdg.us.  (Exceptions occur when students have the same name.)  Students then have their own passwords. Contact your site Teacher Librarian or your principal via email if you are having difficulties logging into your student account. Parents/guardians of very young students may act in their stead to set up activities.

 

Technology Requirements: Students can work on most devices and should use a Chrome browser to access the same drop-down menus they have available at school. Students need to log into their AUSD Google student accounts.  If the Chrome browser is not available, students/families can still access Google Classroom.

 

Device Availability and Internet Connection: There is no assumption that all families have a device available or internet connection. Chromebooks and a limited number of hotspots will be distributed to families in need as soon as possible.  If you have your own hardware and connection, please use it. If you are still in need, please contact your site principal to make an appointment. 

 

Instruction: Instruction will be in Google Classroom, a learning management platform where students can find linked content and assignments, and where they can turn in their work. Some content will be accessed through the Clever Portal for specific content and specific grade levels/courses.  The Clever link is in the right column.

 

Special Education Support: Students have access to learning strategies and supports, especially students with IEPs.  Information can be found here.

 

Grading Policy: We understand that students will have different capacities for completing lessons/activities at home, and grades will not be impacted by a lack of access to resources. Teachers will be acknowledging effort, and students will be asked to share their learning in class when school resumes or through electronic means should the suspension of classroom instruction be prolonged.
