Take a tour
of Compass Learning and find out how students can utilize this tool as an enrichment or remediation activity. Compass Learning challenges students by meeting them where they are at, based on NWEA and other standardized testing. Parents can also access Compass Learning using their own username and password (provided by your child's school) to check in and see what progress the student is making in the online program, both at home and at school. All Peoria Public Schools' students have access to this great learning tool and information can be obtained by calling your child's school!
All Peoria Public Schools' students, K-12, have access to a foreign language. At most middle and high schools, this access is provided by a foreign language teacher. At the primary level and for some middle schools, this access is provided through Rosetta Stone. Students who have been given a username and password at school can also use that same information to access Rosetta Stone at home. Parents/Guardians will need to purchase a USB headset with microphone to utilize this software at home. Student user information can be obtained by parents through your child's school.
Digital Textbooks and Curriculum Components
Peoria Public Schools is excited to have purchased new curriculum materials in many content areas for the 2011-2012 school year. All new curriculum materials utilize digital textbooks and/or digital curriculum components. For example, Science Fusion is a new curriculum for primary level science. Digital content libraries play a large part in the curriculum, giving teachers the ability to play related videos in class. Students can access many of these digital materials at home, too!
