Student Resources for Online Learning
Welcome to the FISD Online Learning Resource Page. Below you will find useful links to tutorial instructions and videos that will help you get connected with your teachers and district accounts. We will continue to add information here throughout the year that will make the bridge to online instruction flow much smoother.
Students in grades PreK through 3rd grades will receive QuickCards to use for QR scan login.
FISD students will now be using ClassLink, a single sign-on platform that will allow teachers and students to use one username and password to access everything they need. Single sign-on is an essential tool for productive remote learning, and ClassLink will serve as your child’s home base for education, whether it’s in the classroom or at home.
Students may access their Teams account through ClassLink or through their MS 365 email accounts.
Microsoft Classroom Teams is a digital hub for all Office 365 products and tools. Teams is one of the tools that teachers will use to share content, connect with students, give assignments, or provide activities and resources for student learning.
