Resources for Virtual Teaching and Learning

Teachers and Parents:  We have begun to collect a list of resources that we hope will help during this time of virtual learning.  We will continue to add to this site so please check back regularly.

  • Secure your Zoom meetings:

Use random meeting IDs. Do NOT host meetings using your Personal Meeting ID (PMI). Instead use Zoom random meeting IDs for meetings.

Lock your meeting . You can lock a Zoom meeting once it is started and all your expected participants have joined.

Require a password to join your meeting.

Manage participants in meetings. As a meeting host, you can control who is admitted to your meetings, mute participants, put participants on hold, and more.

If you find yourself with a disruptive participant in your meeting, you can remove them. On the Zoom control panel, click on “Participants”, then select “More”, and “Remove” the participant.

Control screen sharing for participants. The Zoom default allows only the host to share screens.  Please only share the screen you select and when needed.
