Learning Management Systems
Students will utilize Learning Management Systems to access materials and instructional activities to engage in high-quality teaching and learning. Elementary scholars will use Google Classroom, and secondary scholars will use Canvas. Scholars will be able to easily log in to either platform using their jpsms.org student email accounts through Clever, our single sign-on learning application. Learn more below.
Clever is an easy way for your scholar to sign-on to all of the programs used by his or her teacher and the district. This eliminates scholars having to remember multiple usernames and passwords.
