Clarkson Community High School has worked very hard to implement online learning access for parents and students across the entire school curriculum in response to the current COVID-19 situation.
Connect is an integrated online environment developed by the Department of Education WA for staff, students and parents in public schools. Check out the short video clip on Connect at https://vimeo.com/connectwa/welcome
We encourage all parents to register for a parent account so they can monitor their child's progress and access course information from home. If you have more than one child at the school, you will be able to access all of their course materials with your account. A download section of guides and FAQs for parents can be found here and a guide for students can be found here.
Connect is totally free and, because it is provided by the Department of Education, very safe. As well as being able to login to Connect on any internet-enabled device, you may also receive notices from Connect that will be sent to you as either an email or a notification to your mobile device.
A free app called Connect Now can also be downloaded from Google Play or the Apple App Store. However, we have found that simply using your device web browser to access Connect is the better option to access the full set of features.
Clarkson is mindful of the need for social distancing at this time. Therefore, we are providing several ways for parents to register for Connect:
- If your child is currently attending school, they can collect parent registration forms from the front office. Please complete, sign and have your child return the form back to the front office.
- If you have a printer available to you, please download and complete the Parent Registration Form and return to the school. There are a few options for this - You can either use a scanner or the Scanbot app (for Android or iOS), or simply take photos of the completed form. Please then email the signed documents to email@example.com
Whichever method you chose, you will be confidentially issued with your unique user name and password for Connect as soon as is practicable. Once you have received your account details you can log in to Connect here or via the links on the school homepage and top menu under "Students".
Clarkson is committed to continuing your child's education throughout this unprecedented time. Further information on COVID-19 policies will be emailed to you so please make sure you have updated your email address with the school. If you have any further questions please feel free to email us at the address above. Stay safe! :)
