Several families have reached out about setting up Zoom. The app has been pushed out by the district today and may show up today or tomorrow on your students device. On Chromebooks it will show up under apps and on iPads there will be a Zoom icon.
For further assistance in setting up Zoom for your student please reference there videos.

We have created a brief run-through of how students in K-2 and 3-8 will sign in and be present in their classes on the first day. The videos highlight 3 key points – How to login/join, how to switch between classes, and how to navigate to tasks/activities. There is a video for Seesaw and a video for Google Classroom. The 2 videos combined take up a total of just under 7 minutes.

Our Technology Department has been working to support students and staff as we all learn and work remotely. We understand that some families are experiencing slow speeds or problems with their providers, and we ask you to report that directly to your provider.
People experiencing problems with District 54 technology (Chromebooks and iPads for students) should email [email protected] so that we can troubleshoot the problem via phone or email. If the problem cannot be resolved, we have a technology drop-off program. To schedule an appointment to drop off a broken laptop, iPad or other device, you must first email.
Hotspots are also available for financially struggling families who don’t have internet access at home. Please contact our office if you are experiencing financial hardships and need a hotspot
