New Teachers and Tech FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions 

What technology do I have access to in my building to support teaching and learning?

This varies by building because schools get to choose. Please reach out to your administrator.

Where should I go for help?

Your Learning Coach, Instructional Coordinator, Learning Technology Program (LTP) Site Coordinator and/or STEM Coordinator can answer many questions and help you find the resources you need. You can filter this list of Site Contacts by school and by role to find people in your building who can help.

For technical assistance, check out the District Technology Services website. There you can search the district Knowledge Base, submit a work request and learn about the latest district technology news. You can also call the Help Desk at 303-702-7730 (ext. 57730).

How do I set up my Grade Book?

Check with your school administration for school-specific gradebook requirements. For general setup instructions,  this support article will guide you in setting up categories, creating assignments, and setting grade calculation options.

Expectations and Commitments documents are designed to outline both the district’s commitments to service in support of learning as well as the expectations we hold for our users. These documents outline the broad strokes of the LTP partnership and how we all contribute to the success of the program.

Student Data Privacy

St. Vrain Valley School District holds data privacy and security in high regard and takes action to ensure that our students’ data is handled securely in compliance with the Colorado Student Data Transparency and Security Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). When considering a new digital resource it is imperative that teachers and schools consider what student data, if any, will be provided and whether or not the vendor is committed to protecting the data as required. Resources are available here to help teachers, staff, and administrators evaluate and select digital resources that appropriately protect student data.
