Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to collect parent signatures on your Instructional Technology Contract as is outlined within the Laptop Deployment Manual for 2017.

We are please to announce that we have now made it much easier to review a list of completed parent contracts within your classrooms.  To see a list of students who still need to have their contract signed, simply visit the Parent Contract Verification Page (linked here).  

Once you have entered your district credentials, you will be able to sort your completed parent contracts by teacher and class period roster by using the filters along the top of the page (see below).

This will provide you with a complete list of students who have yet to complete their online parent contract within this class (see below).

Please note that if a parent contract status is listed as “Not found” on the page, this could mean one of two things;  either the parent has not yet signed the parent contract OR the parent contract does not contain the accurate student matric number.  

If you suspect that later is the case, you can confirm that the contract has been signed by checking the spreadsheet pages (linked below) and matching the student and/or parent name.

Digital Driver’s License Completion

The other requirement to laptops going home with students is the completion of the Digital Driver’s License in class.  Student completion of this step can also easily be confirm by following the directions posted below.

Students in grades K-5 simply need to work through the lessons with their teacher who will then confirm that their class has completed the sessions.  You can see if a specific student has participated in this process by going to the Administration block in the DDL and selecting Users -> Groups (see below).

Students in grades 7-9 will need to pass the final DDL Quiz with a score of 60% or better before taking the laptop home (this can be done either individually OR as a whole class group).  You can verify which students have passed the quiz by following the steps below.

From the DDL course page, scroll to the bottom and click on the DDL Quiz link (see below).

Click on the link which shows the total number of attempts.

You can now filter by the grade level group, as well as the status of the quiz (i.e. enrolled users who have NOT attempted the quiz, OR users who have attempted but have not passed).

Remember to click on the blue Show Report button along the bottom of the page when you are done.

Again, big thanks to everyone who has taken the time to make sure that both the Parent Contract as well as the student Digital Driver’s License have been completed and please do not hesitate to let us know if there is anything we can do to help facilitate this process.
