e-Backpack

Dear Parent or Guardian,

 

Our school has purchased a subscription to eBackpack, the leading learning management system. The eBackpack program enables students to complete assignments & assessments, annotate and submit work to their teachers, engage in discussion, and stay organized on any internet-connected device.

 

Your child can access eBackpack free of charge anywhere that internet access is available.  Inside eBackpack, students can only communicate with teacher or administrator oversight and they have their own private “My Files” storage area which you have visibility in to.  eBackpack has site-wide security features in place to provide peace of mind, and all of the activities that are performed inside of eBackpack can be reviewed by the school.

 

We are excited about the benefits this program can bring to our student’s learning, and we encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity and be involved in your child’s use of eBackpack. The program provides a parent portal that allows you to see your student’s upcoming assignments, due dates, grades, and late or missed work. We will provide you with your log-in information for this powerful tool enabling you to be a vital part of the learning process.

 

Please feel free to contact eBackpack at questions@eBackpack.com or the school if you have any questions.  You may also learn more about eBackpack at http://www.eBackpack.com.

 

 

Sincerely,
Dr. Warletta Brookins, Superintendent
