Virtual Learning Playbook

resources for families

2020欧洲杯小组赛赛程The district’s online platform for virtual learning is Schoology and Microsoft Teams. Trainings on these platforms will be offered by Technology Services. Additionally, Technology Services will have help desk supports that families can access. 

Our district uses Microsoft Teams to connect through video, audio calls, chat, document sharing and screen sharing. The Teams app is available for Android and iOS. Teams will be used for synchronous virtual instruction. For asynchronous learning opportunities, teachers will record lessons that students can access during their self-paced learning. Students can log in to their accounts with their MNPS credentials.  If students need help logging in to any of their school accounts, or resetting their passwords, they can call the MNPS Help Desk at 615-269-5956.

Our Student Services and Academic Teams will be hosting live events in the coming weeks to help students and families better prepare and understand what school will look like in the virtual environment.

digital learning tools


2020欧洲杯小组赛赛程The district’s learning management system is Schoology and will be used by students in grades K to 12. Why Schoology? It is the No. 1 learning management system for students. Teachers can provide students with access to files, links, videos and collect student work, plus provide academic feedback. It offers online testing possibilities and gives parents access. Plus, it is easy to use. Parents can create accounts using an access code given to them by their student’s teacher. For more information about Schoology, .


Flipgrid is a free video discussion platform for MNPS students that can be used on any mobile device or computer.
