Teachers will now use the goal setting part of Strive instead of the Teacher Self-Assessment. Teachers will be able to set professional goals. To access directions for getting started, go to the Strive (Teacher Handout) document.

Blended Learning

Temple ISD is in the first year of the Blended Learning district rollout plan. There is a cohort (team) of teachers at each campus participating in the formal Cohort 1 process. Everyone else that is interested in Blended Learning is invited to use the resources on the Blended Learning discovery site: You will have to be logged into your "gcloud" Google account to access this site.

GoGuardian Teacher

Teachers in grades 2-12 will use GoGuardian Teacher instead of Hapara to help with classroom Chromebook management this year.

Sign up for the GoGuardian Teacher course to learn how to use GoGuardian Teacher. This online course is broken up into small modules, but the entire course can be completed in less than an hour!
