We are excited to be using Blackboard this year with you and your children! Blackboard is a website platform that allows you and your child to log in and access classroom announcements, homework assignments and other resources in one place for all of your children’s classes. Some of our homeroom teachers and some special area teachers have a Blackboard page. Some teachers are posting: classroom introduction information, announcements and when appropriate, homework assignments. This year, we will be incorporating more of the capabilities that Blackboard has to offer. Please be patient with us, we are breaking new ground and learning as we go.
All schools in the county will be implementing this platform at their own pace. It is the goal of the Fayette County school system that all schools will soon use Blackboard to facilitate student and parent communication and instruction. Please note that this program will not take the place of Infinite Campus. You will continue to check attendance, grades and other information from the parent portal of Infinite Campus.
The purpose of Blackboard is to put technology resources in one place for all students, parents and teachers to access.
