Cloud Tools

This list below displays some of the cloud tools educators in our district may choose to use to enhance their teaching.

Note that student privacy and safety must supersede the ease of use and accessibility of any digital tools and therefore permission letters accompany each tool and must be completed by parents prior to their use.

If parents do not wish their child/children to create an account for a particular tool, safer alternatives are provided.

To request the addition of a tool to this list, click here to fill in an entry (log in required).
