Virtual Learning Playbook

resources for families

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.
