Moodle is a course management system where teachers share weekly overviews and subject specific resources with students. Teachers also administer online assignments and tests through Moodle. Due dates for tests and major assignments can be found on the Moodle course calendar.
All students are assigned unique usernames and passwords to log into Moodle. Parents interested in viewing their child’s Moodle course pages should obtain the username and password from their student. Questions concerning Moodle accounts should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students and parents use Plus Portals to view grades for tests, assignments, progress reports and report cards. At the start of the school year, all students and parents are given separate usernames and passwords. Teachers post grades to Plus Portals weekly or bi-weekly. Questions concerning Plus Portal accounts should be directed to email@example.com.
Distribution and Training
At the time of school registration, all new parents are required to register their student for a computer training session offered in June and July. All new students are required to complete the 8-hour training (over 2 days) related to hardware and software usage. Students will be given their computer at the time of the training.
Responsible Use and L.A.R.K. Policies
All parents and students are asked to read and sign the school’s technology policies prior to attending computer training.
Students are responsible for damages to their assigned computer. Parents may consider purchasing laptop insurance through Worth Ave. Group.
STM is in compliance with the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA). Firewalls and programs are in place on campus to help monitor and manage student activity on the laptops. If parents feel that additional management is needed at home, they should contact their internet provider for options. No third-party security programs should be installed on the school-issued laptops without permission from the school’s administration. These programs often interfere with the student’s ability to work on campus. If you have any questions concerning online security options, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
According to the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), each school system must notify the public of inspections, response actions, periodic surveillance and re-inspection activities on an annual basis.
This is to inform you that AHERA Compliance Management Plans are available for public inspection in either the principal’s or coordinator’s office of each school site in the Diocese of Lafayette School System. These documents include the Inspection Reports, Re-inspection Reports and the Management Plan. Requests to view these may made Monday-Friday during regular school hours.
Inspections of Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) are made by each school every six (6) months. Every three (3) years, reinspection is conducted by a Certified Asbestos Inspector/Management Planner.
