     FALL 2017 ORIENTATION SCHEDULE

    MONDAY, 9/11/17 @ WHS AUDITORIUM

    3:30pm

     

     

    *No student will receive online access until they have taken the pre-test with a Credit Recovery staff member. If you have a scheduling conflict email Monica Dicus at dicusm@wsd3.org to discuss options for the required supervised pre-test.  

    *There are NO exceptions to the end date, all work must still be completed by the close of the session on November 6, 2017

     

    *Attendance IS required for all Credit Recovery Students.
    ~Orientation to the online OdysseyWare program, allows you to meet your teacher face to face, acquire your log-on information, and obtain course expectations. This is also when you will take the supervised/required pre-test for your class. Course access will be denied until you take the pre-test with a Credit Recovery staff member present.

    Teacher 'face to face' times are by office/appointment hours only.

    Common Concerns

    Program Help:
    Use the file Student Tips and FAQs below for frequently asked questions and help with using the system, as well as citation.
    BASIC Trouble shooting:
    -Be sure you accessed OdysseyWare through this page.
    -If the password does not work, try capitalizing the 'S'; if your name is hyphenated, try it first with the hyphen, then just a space, then just the first part.
    -Some students have lastnamefirstinitial as the username; newer students should use lastnamefirstname
    -There are no excused assignments; contact your teacher if the systems says there are
    -Submit assignments through the OdysseyWare website

    What to do if you "disappear"
    The OdysseyWare system changes a student's status in the course after he or she has submitted all the work, regardless of the scores on them. When this happens it will look like you are no longer enrolled in any courses when you login. Don't panic! You have until the dates provided for each session and it is an easy fix; just email or text your teacher or the coordinator phone at 719-896-0175 and your status will be reinstated within 24 hours and all work you have done will reappear. Kudos on your hard work and let us know what you need. ~Ms. Dicus

    Support
    If you have already contacted your teacher/mentor but have unresolved issues, please contact Ms. Dicus (the Program Coordinator) at 719-896-0175 and leave a message with your name, the course you are taking, the issue at hand, and a reliable contact number.

    Current Session Updates:

    Once sessions begin, please remember to login daily and contact teachers as needed. Email, text, phone, and face-to-face communication is used by teachers; please check these modes of communication daily as well. Teachers are allowed 48 hours to respond to texts/calls/emails, but will typically respond within 24 hours.  The week of spring break, teachers are not available to students, but students are encouraged to continue working on assignments.
