Welcome to DVUSD Pathways!
About your course
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you will be taking your Geometry 2 class on Canvas - this is the same system used throughout DVUSD. Class begins June 1st and ends June 26. While you can reach me via email here all written class communication will be done in Canvas. I will be checking messages in Canvas at least once a day and responding daily. Your class will begin within the Home Learning (virtual) Environment. A new element within the Home Learning Environment is that students will be tracking and submitting their daily learning minutes via the My Hours software platform. These minutes will be submitted by the end of each week of enrollment. Additionally, we will meet daily, Monday through Friday at 3:15 pm, via an app called Zoom, to take roll, answer questions, give additional instruction, and help you through assignments. Zoom meeting attendance is mandatory. I will also post the schedule and links for these live sessions in Canvas. You can also make an appointment to meet with me individually if you are struggling by messaging me in Canvas.
How to get started
Every day will begin by logging into Zoom at 3:15 pm to take roll and get started. The link is posted on the home page of your Canvas course. We will meet on Zoom again at 6:30 pm to finish up, log your hours, and end at 6:45 pm.
Login to Canvas online or with the Canvas app (iOs/Android).
If you have any trouble with your iPad, Notability, or Canvas, please put in a helpdesk ticket by clicking here:
Parents can also login to Canvas to observe classes and student progress. Parents even have their very own app: Canvas Parent.
