Once your student's enrollment process is completed and their start date arrives, you can expect the following:
Your student's Chromebook kit, which includes all technology needed for the school year, will be shipped via FedEx. K-5 students will receive a separate shipment of physical materials, also. Read the Chromebook kit welcome letter here.
Next, keep an eye out for a message from the Help Desk to the email used to register your student. In it are the student FCA account credentials and next steps for getting started! Your student can log in right away once the Chromebook arrives.
Lastly, students will find that they are enrolled in Student Orientation, a comprehensive Canvas course that introduces them to the FCA program and technology. Once this is completed, their content courses will be ordered! You will also hear from the Homeroom Teacher during Onboarding to answer academic questions.
Parent(s)/guardian(s) with a student registered at FCA are recommended to set up a Canvas account (called Observer ). An Observer can see all course content and grades specific to their student only in the Canvas platform. Observers can also opt in to email notifications and digests about course activity.
Information about setting up an Observer account is available in Student Onboarding and will periodically be sent to families that do not have active Observer accounts. FCA will also hold live webinars and post on the blog resources for managing your Observer account!
