Due to scheduling conflicts there will be no live Zoom for DCMST’s Open House tonight. Instead feel free to look through the information on the slideshow that was posted earlier. If you have any questions feel free to email our principal Dr. Green at greenw@dearbornschools.org.

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

Director, Technology & Media Services

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)

Schoology Update!

Schoology will be available for students Monday morning. They will sign in using Google (Dearborn Account).
To sign into a Chromebook, students use their district credentials: – User Name = Student Number- Password = whatever they set it as last year, we did NOT change any passwords. New students will have their passwords set to their birthday (MMDDYYYY) as per MiStar.
Students can access Schoology from the Student Portal on the district web site.

*Students using district issued Chromebooks will have two tabs open upon start up, the district student portal page AND the Schoology page.

New Announcement!

DCMST students & parents:  Please look for information from your DCMST teachers via Schoology, Remind,  and/or email this week.  We will plan to do our 9th & 10th grade orientation meetings via Zoom the following week.  Stay tuned for more information!

Welcome Back


August 28, 2020

WELCOME BACK STUDENTS AND PARENTS

We are more than excited to have you back for another adventure and unpredictable journey through our 2020 – 2021 school year.  The Dearborn Heights teachers and administrators are working hard to get ready for this unprecedented school year.

We understand that unknowns create a great deal of anxiety and stress for our students and families, but we want to assure you that we are here to guide you through any difficult process or bumps in the road. We ask that you remain patient and work with us as we all navigate through the first week of school. Our plan is to introduce you to our new platform of learning and communication through Schoology. This is also new to us and we have been working diligently to learn all that we can before the first day of school. 

Our commitment is to review and teach expectations, to establish norms, to explain schedules for virtual learning, and to introduce our new learning platform (Schoology) in the first week or two of school.  We are absolutely committed to making this year a positive journey; regardless if we are face-to-face or online. We appreciate every student and recognize every parent’s vote of confidence in having us care for their child. We do not take this responsibility lightly. Our hope is that you will communicate with your teachers as we roll into the school year. We anticipate some difficulties and/or challenges and know that we will be available within the structure of the school day to address any concerns you may have. 

Welcome back and we can not wait to see you all!

Dr. Winifred Green – Principal                                Mr. Oussama Baydoun – Assistant Principal
