Teacher Pages

In addition to direct contact with teachers, CSD is pleased to provide more granular access to specific notes from teacher classrooms. Use the navigation bar on the left to locate and select your teacher’s class notes page, which may feature static messages and documents followed by a stream of updates and posts from your instructor. To learn more about how the website is organized and structured, visit the FAQ page.

With this increased access to teacher updates published on the website comes a wide array of subscription options as well. Using the links provided on the Connect page, classroom families can easily define what information (news and/or teacher notes) they wish to receive, as well as how they receive this information; delivery options for each category of news and/or teacher notes includes email, text message (SMS), Twitter and RSS.
