Online Learning Transition
The district has temporarily shifted to online learning for all students through January 24th or at the very latest, January 31st. Once the city’s infection rate decreases to more normal levels, then we will resume in-person learning. Please note that online learning will follow the regular school bell schedule per state requirements.
As a reminder, Grab and Go meals will continue to be served at each school Monday and Thursday from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. If you need technology support during online learning you can call 1-313-240-4377 or visit techsupport.detroitk12.org and select “Technical Support.” Support is available Monday through Friday, 7 a.m.- 6 p.m. If your child received a loaner device and it is broken, then visit Renaissance High School, Western High School, Fisher Upper, or Martin Luther King High School to have it assessed for possible repairs. These locations are open on online learning days from 9:00 a.m.– 4:00 p.m
Lastly, if you need academic help you can call the Homework Hotline for support. The academic support is offered Monday – Thursday, from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m., excluding holidays. To use the hotline, call 1-833-466-3978 during operating hours and follow the prompts. If you need mental health support, then we have social workers who can help by calling 1-833-466-3978.

Resources for Online Learning
DPSCD students have a number of online learning tools available to help them succeed in and out of the classroom. Most of these tools can be accessed through Clever, which is the platform students use to access learning applications like i-Ready, MyOn, and Teams. The District’s preferred browser for accessing Clever is Chrome, which can be downloaded to your computer, smartphone, or tablet for free at www.google.com/chrome. Visit our Clever page for more information.
Teams for Education is the platform our teachers use to stay connected with students while in and out of the classroom. District teachers have Teams automatically rostered for each of their courses, and students are automatically enrolled in Teams for each of their courses. Teachers can conduct check-ins (via chat and video) with students and families, provide one-on-one or small group assistance for those who need more support, conduct whole-class discussions or lessons, and assign and provide feedback on submitted assignments. If your child does not have access to a smartphone, tablet, or computer, ask your child's teacher for the local 313 telephone number needed to join their regularly scheduled class support sessions. Visit our Teams page for more information.

Submit Assignments in Teams
Schoology works with the rest of the District’s digital tools and online resources to help us provide excellent instruction to our students. Teachers use Schoology to assign work, distribute reading and media to students, assess student progress, communicate with families, and create an online classroom environment.
