Bethel students are provided computer access privileges at school, as well as access to the Internet, email, digital communication and collaboration tools, online learning spaces and electronic educational resources. These resources, tools and equipment are essential to teaching and learning.
Each student is given an account in Active Directory that they will use to log on to any district-owned computer within the district network. These credentials are used to access the Destiny Library Catalog, Google Apps for Education and online curriculum.
This suite of apps is hosted by Google and managed by the District. This collection of online applications provides students with a Google email account, calendar and access to Google Drive, where students can create, share and publish documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and other products of their learning.
Most of the curriculum adopted in the District is accompanied by or depends on access to an online system where content and assessments are stored. Many of these systems require students to have a unique account created for them which allows them to access supplemental content, take quizzes, and strengthen their understanding about the ideas in a content area.
PowerSchool is the student information system used by the Bethel School District. It is a web-based application that allows parents and students to log into a secure account from home, school or work where they can access assignments, grades and attendance, request reports, email teachers and more.
