The Learning Management System (LMS)

For virtual learning and beyond, OCS will be using a Learning Management System (LMS) known as itsLearning.  itsLearning is an online cloud-based solution that will provide parents, students, and staff a “one stop shop” for all things related to curriculum and content management, instruction, tools for assessment and communication, and reporting and analytics. The system will integrate content to provide a seamless process for remote learning and will be accessible via the District website.

Students will access the LMS via their device anywhere that has an internet connection. Simply visit our E-Learning page or sccpss.com for the login portal. OCS Teachers will populate the system with lessons, classroom assignments and will communicate with parents and students via messages and/or email.

An easy way to understand the LMS is to picture a house that contains everything you need!  OCS Teachers will have the ability to customize learning tools to fit the needs of our students!

2020-21 Grading Policy

40% Assessments: Tests, Quizzes, Formative/Summative Assessments; Major Projects

60% Classwork/Homework: Class Assignments, Daily Small Projects

Parents are asked to refrain from doing the student’s assignments. However, as stated in Item 13 of the Family Contract, parents are responsible for seeing that students complete and turn in assignments. Failure to complete classwork or homework assignments will result in mandatory Saturday School. All assignments must be completed. Late assignments are subject to partial credit at the discretion of the assigning teacher. Students with more than five (5) missing assignments may not be eligible to attend extracurricular activities. 

In the event of an excused absence, assignment deadlines will be extended one day for each day’s absence. Absence from school for illness or to attend a special school function does not excuse a student from the responsibility for completing assignments in and out of class. 

Attendance Policy

Student attendance is the responsibility of the parent and the student. School attendance and academic success are causally related. When students are absent from school, their absence causes a loss of instructional time and could result in poor academic performance.

E-learning days attendance will be defined by a student’s participation. Students will be considered in attendance when they are participating in active instruction and/or educational services. Examples include time spent working in the online platform, log-in activity, attendance during live instruction, submission of student assignments, and student/teacher interactions.
