What is the OneClay Digital Classroom Initiative?
The OneClay Digital Classroom Initiative is a three part initiative that gives our staff, students, and parents the resources and tools necessary to teach and learn in a digital environment.
Part One: The OneClay Portal (my.oneclay.net) provides a uniform starting point for our District with single sign on access to our most used digital resources, including email, calendars, tools, and storage. For more information: http://digitalclassroominitiative.weebly.com/oneclay-portal.html
Part Two: Once inside the OneClay Portal, the familiar Focus icon will launch you into our Student Information System that includes attendance, assessment, communication, discipline, digital lesson delivery, gradebook, and progress monitoring information. For more information: http://digitalclassroominitiative.weebly.com/focus.html
Part Three: Also launching from inside the OneClay Portal are the Google Apps for Education (GAFE). GAFE accounts allow staff and students in grades 3-12 to create, collaborate, and store their work. For more information: http://digitalclassroominitiative.weebly.com/google-apps-for-education.html
Why were the parents notified of the Google Apps for Education accounts?
Due to Federal laws, we legally had to notify parents that their child(ren) will have GAFE accounts. Parents have the right to Opt Out of GAFE for their child(ren). More information about those laws, our compliance, and the Opt Out Form can be found on our GAFE FAQ page at: http://www.oneclay.net/google-apps-for-education.html
When should I implement the OneClay Digital Classroom Initiative?
You can begin to use the tools and resources associated with the DCI at anytime. The use of these tools is not mandatory, but we encourage you to explore them as we will be transitioning from Outlook (email, calendar, OneDrive) to Google (Gmail, Calendar, Drive).
How can I learn more about the OneClay Digital Classroom Initiative?

Can I share the DCI website with my students and their parents?
Yes! We encourage you to share the DCI website so that parents and students can access these resources and tools at home.
