Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,
In an effort to develop more efficient ways to streamline information between teachers and students, Middleburgh Central School District will be transitioning to G Suite for Education. This collaborative tool will help support our new online teaching and learning environment. Every student will be getting access within the next few weeks. When we are fully ready to utilize Google Classroom, we will let you know. Until then, continue to use the methods you have been using.
How It Will Work
Grades 5th -12th will log into Google Classroom to access all of their messages, assignments, and documents from teachers. This platform is taking the place of the mcseducationonline.org site, so students can get real-time feedback from their teachers on their assignments. Teachers will post in their Google Classroom, in addition to their regularly scheduled class Zoom sessions. Students will be asked to submit their work through Google Classroom, instead of email, so everything is found in one place.
