Guide to the iPad Pilot Resources

iPad Pilot Blog – http://acdsipad.blogspot.com/ - This is where you are now. You will find updates to the pilot as well as links to all the other portals and services you and your student will use. Checking this regularly will keep you informed on the activities in the classroom and will give you insights into the philosophy and pedagogy of the pilot. This blog does not require a login.

PCR – PCR Educator – http://tinyurl.com/pcrportalstudent - is where we post grades and report cards. You should check this periodically to ensure all assignments have been turned in. Teachers will update PCR by Thursday each week so you have the weekend to catch up on any missing assignments. You can also update your household information such as changes in email, phone or address. Your login for PCR will arrive in an email before Back to School Night. If you need help, please email or phone Maurice McMillan at the main school number or mmcmillan@acdnset.org

Haiku http://haiku.acdsnet.org – Your child will use Haiku every day. Teachers will post announcements, calendars of upcoming projects, assignments, downloads of worksheets, discussion question, etc.
Students have created login accounts at school and may share that with you. Student households are offered an invitation code that you will find below. You may also just sign in with your student, you will see the same information either way.
