Online Educational Resources/Video Tutorials
Brunswick County Schools is fortunate to have access to a large variety of resources for our students. In addition, many of our partners are extending our access to include additional grade levels and areas during this time. While our students are accustomed to accessing these resources in our classrooms and on our network, they may not be as practiced when accessing them at home.
Parents, if your child does not have access to a chromebook, laptop, iPad, tablet or other device at home, we will be checking out the devices for you to take home on Monday, March 16th, from 11am-4pm. If you have children at multiple schools, you can check out the devices for each of them from one location. You will just need to fill out a short form at the school for checkout.
The following videos were created in order to give parents and students brief reminders of how to access our resources and what is available. Many of these resources include content that students can review, practice or explore even without specific teacher assignments. During this time, we encourage our students to continue to grow in their skills and knowledge. Learning can take place anywhere, any time.
Most BCS student resources are accessed via our Clever portal. In order to log in to Clever, students will need their Google user ID and password. Student Google IDs always end in @netmail.bcswan.net.
