Student / Parent Resources: Canvas & ParentSquare

Here you will find links and information to help students facilitate Remote Learning during the COVID-19 school closure. You can call the 24hr District Help Line at 209-745-9744 for login issues and other technology related issues.
All district students will be issues a device (Chromebook or Windows Laptop) that they will check-out with their textbooks the week of 8/10/2020 - 8/14/2020. Only students with certain technology classes will receive a Windows based Laptop. In addition, those students without internet access will be issued a district owned "HotSpot".
Remote Learning Software
The  two main online programs Galt High School and Liberty Ranch High School will use to facilitate Remote Learning are below with links. Students need to be familiar with both:
canvas link
  • Canvas - Used for instruction and grade reporting. Students are given an account through the school. Most use will be through a district laptop provided to all students, in addition there is an App for mobile devices. Students will log in to Canvas to communicate with their teachers, receive instruction, communicate with classmates, complete discussions, view assignments, complete assignments, turn in assignments and view grades on assignments. A majority of the students time during Remote Learning will be spent on this platform. Parents will also get an account to view current grades and keep track of student work completion.
parent square
  • ParentSquare - Used for communication and attendance. All communication regarding school events, times and updates will be communicated through ParentSquare. This is accessed through an App on a mobile device or through a computer. Be sure that parents email and cell phone numbers are current with the school. Student attendance will also be through ParentSquare and you will receive attendance notifications for students through this app.
