Online etiquette for parents

Let’s face it, as great as Dearborn Public School parents are, for the most part, they were not spending  their days in the classrooms at our schools before last year. 

But then COVD-19 dumped those classrooms into your house and now everyone is navigating this new method of delivering education. To help parents and students with online learning, we have compiled some etiquette tips for parents. We know that most families follow good protocols, but hopefully, this will help if some clarification is needed. We thank you in advance for that cooperation.  

Parents 

Please make sure students are prepared and participating. Ensure supplies and materials are ready,  and computers are charged or plugged in. Please make sure students log in on time. If you want your  child to get the most out of class, insist they turn on their camera even if the teacher does not require it.  

Remember teachers are there to teach your child. Teachers are managing their class and providing  instruction directed to your child. Please do not interrupt class with your questions or concerns. Those  are best emailed to the teacher. 

Be respectful. Teachers have had a difficult year too, and are working hard to make the best of a  situation they never expected to be in. Be patient and courteous. If you have concerns, please politely  bring those to the teacher outside of class time through email. Inappropriate language and demeaning or  aggressive behavior are not permitted. 

Don’t hover. Allow your child to interact with the teacher and do their own homework and  assessments. We always encourage parents to be involved and support their children in their learning,  but to learn and develop independence, each child needs to be engaged and doing his or her own work.  (Obviously our youngest students probably need more help from the adults at home.) 

Watch the background. Be aware that, depending on how your child’s camera and microphone are set  up, the behavior of you and others could be transmitted to the entire class. Be mindful of how you are  dressed, the language being used, and other such matters. 

Technology issues. Issues with technology will happen from time to time for a variety of reasons.  Please be patient when issues occur. For technical questions about your Chromebook, Schoology or  Zoom, please contact our parent and student tech support at parenthelp@dearbornschools.org or 313- 827-8400. 

Thank you for all your help! Together, we will make the best of this difficult year.

Schoology Parent Logins

Yesterday every parent with an email in the system should have received an email with information to log in to Schoology. This way you can see what assignments your child is completing as well as communicate directly with your child’s teacher. We also will be using this system to send you messages. For more information, please refer to the Home Learning Hub website.

Schoology for Parents

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

Dearborn Public Schools is now using Schoology, an integrated learning management solution that provides course management, mobile learning, and support for system-wide communication.  Schoology enables our students, parents, and teachers to engage with learning materials and their school community from the classroom and beyond. 

With Schoology, students can digitally submit homework assignments, review grades, participate in interactive discussions, receive announcements and feedback, take tests, write academic blogs, and more. As a parent, you will be able to view your child’s activity within the platform. 

Parents will be able to see the work that is being assigned to their children. Schoology will also be used to communicate important information from the School. Schoology can be used on the web or via the Schoology App for iOS or Android.

Grades will still be available in ParentConnect through MiStar. 

You will be receiving an email with your login information. These emails will be sent to parent email addresses on file via the Emergency Information Forms. 

Schoology also has a Parent Guide available to support you and your questions. One of the most important topics is Parent Notifications. You can choose how and how often you are notified by Schoology. You may also find the Parent Overview Video useful. 

We value your participation in your child’s education, and we encourage you to read Schoology’s Privacy Policy & Terms of Use at  https://www.schoology.com/privacy. Student progress and activity will be monitored by faculty to ensure a safe, secure, and controlled environment. 

Sincerely, 

Troy Patterson

District changing to 2 card markings per semester for High School Students

The district has decided to move from six marking periods per year to four.  The move to quarters was made to simplify the grading and communication process.  This will not change how parents look online and get live feedback on grades.  Parent teacher conference dates will be adjusted to fit the new system.  Those dates will be finalized soon..  

  • Quarter 1 – cumulative weeks for 1-9
  • Semester 1 – cumulative for weeks 1 – 18 (this grade will be on the transcript)
  • Quarter 3 –  cumulative weeks for 19-28
  • Semester 2 –  cumulative for weeks 19 – 36 (this grade will be on the transcript)
