The Parent Resources for Virtual Learning Guide has easy to follow videos and tutorials for the various platforms and programs students will utilize during virtual learning.  For information on these programs, please view the guide. 

OUSD teachers will utilize one of two platforms to communicate with students, SeeSaw or Google Classroom.  More detailed information on how to use these programs can be found in the Parent Resources for Virtual Learning Guide.  Stay connected with your student's classroom teacher(s) for specific assignments and curriculum information.
