Technology Resources for Families
Below, you will find lots of useful information about district technology and resources to help you learn to use it.
Do I Need to Return My Child's Distance Learning Technology?
For students who borrowed district technology during distance learning, those devices are now managed by the schools they are attending in the fall. Your school site can provide details about how it is specifically managing, collecting, and distributing devices.
If you have graduated from or otherwise left SFUSD, please contact the school you attended last spring to make arrangements for returning your device. For more information about student devices, visit sfusd.edu/device
Digital Learning and Online Platforms for Students
Digital learning in SFUSD takes place online through a learning management system. A Learning Management System (LMS) is a software application used as an online learning classroom or hub. It is where teachers can post and receive assignments, provide ongoing feedback to students, and communicate learning back to families. Seesaw is SFUSD’s official LMS for grades PK-2, while Google Classroom is our LMS for grades 3-12.
In addition to accessing learning through management systems like Google Classroom and Seesaw, the SFUSD Digital Backpack is a collection of district-approved tools that have been vetted for safety and privacy. Backpacks are personalized for each student based on their school and grade. All Backpack tools are accessed from clever.sfusd.edu using a district-provided Google email account. Students need only to click the “Log in with Google” button using the student’s SFUSD Google ID and password (PK-2 students use scannable badges to log in). SFUSD Google accounts and badges are accessible through SFUSD’s Family Portal, ParentVUE, and Student Portal, StudentVUE.
When students log into an SFUSD Chromebook or sign into the Chrome browser from any device with their SFUSD email and password, they can easily access SFUSD’s core digital learning platforms from the SFUSD Student Technology Resources site.
Update Your Student's Emergency Contact Info Online!
Families are now able to complete the Emergency Card form online through ParentVUE. Through the online emergency card form, families can update their student’s health information, emergency contacts, and upload health forms and immunization records. Families are also able to update their contact information including their phone number, email address, and mailing address.
Note: If you already submitted a paper emergency card to your school, no further action is required. A step-by-step guide on how to complete the Emergency Card Form Online is posted in sfusd.edu/parentvue.
