  • CCHS Student Printing Procedure

    Posted by John Monick at 10/22/2015
    The High School recognizes that students might need to print, on paper, a documnet or letter. Below is the HS student printing procedure.
     
    Students will email ONE print job (one page document or multiple page document), to any High School teacher that has you enrolled in their class.
    The email subject must contain the students full name.
    The attached document must be a PDF file (PDF file format only)
    The print job will not exceed 20 pages.
    If the received email does not confirm to the procedure above it will be returned and not printed.
     
    The authorizing teacher will FORWARD that students email to “HSPRINT” (hsprint@ccsd.cc).
    The student’s name and PDF attachment will automatically be part of the FORWARDED email to HSPRINT.
    The teacher and student will receive an email notification when the submitted print job has been printed and is ready to be picked up at the HS Library circulation desk.
    The print job will be available to be picked up AFTER the email notification has been sent and received, not before.
    If a student or other user sends an email to HSPRINT, they will get a “not authorized” email returned to them.

    Posted by Jeff Groshek at 10/22/2015

    Students that are identified on the weekly ineligibility report will be enrolled in Academic Focus Level 2 (AFL 2). Your building Principal will review the ineligibility report and email the student (and Cc: HelpDesk) so the tech department will know who to move onto AFL 2.

    Students placed on AFL 2 MUST back up all their iPAd academic data and files immediatly. AFL 2 will remove social media access from your iPad. Photo sharing sites (such as Instagram), Forums and Facebook messaging will also be blocked. In addition, non-educational streaming video access will be removed. Entertainment sites like Netflix, Hulu and Vimeo will no longer connect on your device nor will you be able to use streaming sites like YouTube. If the student improves their academic standing within the next two weeks, all of the above AFL 2 restrictions will be removed from your iPad.

    If you do not improve after 2 weeks, you will then be placed on Academic Focus Level 3 (AFL 3). Students placed on AFL 3 MUST back up all their iPad academic data and files immediatly. Mr. Groshek and/or Mr. Snyder will collect your iPad for a short timeframe to get AFL 3 applied to your iPad. In AFL 3 your FaceTime will be turned off. Photo streaming, iPad Camera and Apple App Store access will be removed. All games will also be removed. All Public Web Email access will be blocked 24/7.

    iPad AR Test Issue & Fix
     
     

    Students report issues when taking AR tests. The issue is due to students setting their Safari Browser into Private mode. The Safari Private mode needs to be off (at the times).  The Private mode is meaningless in our environment.

     

     

    In normal mode, the top of Safari looks white or gray (see below) 

     

     
     

    In Private mode, the top of Safari looks black or dark (see below)
