Digital Learning Help Documents/Videos
As we approach the start of the school year, we want to communicate our plan for student device distribution. All GCPS students in grades 3-12 will be issued a Chromebook to be used at school and taken home to extend learning beyond the school day for the 2022-23 school year. Students in grades K-2 will have access to a Chromebook daily in their classroom.
While content filtering is applied to devices, parents are responsible for monitoring the appropriate use of technology at home. Students in households with limited or no access to the internet can request a hotspot from the local school. Local schools will communicate their schedules for device distribution. Students are expected to use devices following the GCPS Acceptable Use Policy and the Student Conduct Behavior Code.
Students should arrive at school each day ready for learning with a fully charged device.
It is very important that families review the Parent and Student Responsibility information shared by GCPS.
What is Digital Citizenship & Why is it Important?
At Pharr, students will learn about Being a Good Digital Citizen. Digital Citizenship is a concept which helps teachers, technology leaders and parents to understand what students/children/technology users should know to use technology appropriately. Digital Citizenship is more than just a teaching tool; it is a way to prepare students/technology users for a society full of technology. Digital citizenship is the norms of appropriate, responsible technology use.

Digital Learning Days
Emergency Digital Learning Day- for days when weather/events prevent teaching in-person:
A Digital Learning (DL) Day is intended to replace a snow (or other weather-related) make up day in the event that we have already used all of the planned make up days. If GCPS decided to hold a "DL" Day, it would mean that the school building is closed for the day. However, the teachers would place work for students to complete at home (on the DL Day) on their eCLASS Course Pages.
Pharr's Digital Learning Day Expectations
*These are not the expectations for Digital Learning due to Covid-19.
My eCLASS (Student Portal) is an exciting tool to support teaching and learning in Gwinnett County Public Schools.
My eCLASS is comprised of online resources like textbooks, media research, Classworks, and an online learning platform. The online learning platform is the online vehicle teachers will be using to deliver lessons and activities. Students will log on to their My eCLASS account and visit their Course Pages to complete activities or submit work.
