Google Classroom and Innovations Charter School

  

Google Classroom- Each Teacher has created a Google Classroom. Each Innovations Student has been invited to their appropriate grade level course subject classrooms.  These invites came via the Edmentum/Plato messaging system.

Innovations Students have a google email set up as follows:


 User Name: StudentID @imscharter.org

 Password: StudentID.


Each day in this virtual classroom the student has the opportunity to participate in bell work, daily discussions, alternative and supplemental assignments, Edmentum/Plato support and live chat and phone with their teachers.

Participation is expected daily. 


You can access google classrooms from any device, even a phone.
