What is Microsoft Teams for Education

Teams for Education is the platform our teachers use to stay connected with students while in and out of the classroom.  District teachers have Teams automatically rostered for each of their courses, and students are automatically enrolled in Teams for each of their courses.  Teachers can conduct check-ins (via chat and video) with students and families, provide one-on-one or small group assistance for those who need more support, conduct whole-class discussions or lessons, and assign and provide feedback on submitted assignments.  If your child does not have access to a smartphone, tablet or computer, ask your child's teacher for the local 313 telephone number needed to join their regularly scheduled class support sessions.
