Tech Tips and Help for Staff
Staff: In anticipation of SY21-22, we have transitioned most of these items over to the Knowledge Base in IncidentIQ. Please check the contents at https://csdecatur.incidentiq.com/requestor/kb for these and many more guidelines and tips.
How can I get better insight into my students' participation with material in Classroom?
You can log into Schoolytics with your CSD G Suite account and use their teacher dashboard to surface additional insights into students' grades and submission rates, along with other info. This tool offers a bit more flexibility and has more filters than the standards Classroom interface permits. Users who need building- or district-wide insights can contact Eston Melton and copy their supervisor to request that access.

I want to use a cool new website or add-on with my students. How do I get approval for that?
Please check in with your colleagues, instructional coach, and media specialist before looking to bring in a new service or software tool. It's quite possible we've already licensed or evaluated one that fits your needs!
If that's not the case, please check this Doc (also available via the CSD Staff Forms and Referents shared drive) for steps to request a software/service evaluation. The evaluation process focuses on privacy and system compatibility and does not render judgment on pedagogical appropriateness.
