Prepare for NTI/2DL
All secondary schools are moving to Canvas for their digital Learning Management System (LMS). This will limit students having to learn multiple systems. Canvas is very well-organized and allows for more creativity and engagement in lessons. It also interfaces with Infinite Campus, connects to district provided programs, provides due dates for assignments, and allows for easy communication between parent/teacher and teacher/student.
FCPS has answered many questions about our fall 2020 learning opportunities in the Reenvisioning, Reimagining and Renewing Booklet.
Morton Leadership is committed to providing a daily schedule for delivery of instruction and expectations for teaching and learning. Upon approval of SBDM, we will share more specifics regarding the daily instructional schedule with our families.
A monthly newsletter will be distributed by the principal. Please be sure that your email addresses are accurate so that you do not miss out on vital information.
The district's Technology Department is staffing a help desk for families who need technical support with their child's FCPS account or Chromebook. Please call the Student Tech Support line, 381-4410.
