Seesaw for Families

Seesaw is an online tool that we use primarily in early childhood and elementary grades.  It is a space for teachers to share assignments with students which also allows parents to participate in seeing what students are doing.  It is also a helpful tool for communication.

Seesaw was used extensively for remote learning due to staff and students already having some familiarity with the product.  In the long term, we would expect to see increased usage of the Canvas learning management platform at elementary, similar to how it Canvas is used now for grades 6-12.  

The Seesaw Help page for Families has useful articles and resources for using the product.  We have created some additional materials here that we hope are helpful.
