It's HERE! The tool you've been asking for is ready to roll. Lightspeed Classroom management tool combined with the Lightspeed Parent Portal will provide you with the opportunity to create a safe, focused learning environment for you and your students in a 1:1 classroom. Parents will appreciate the analytics and ability to limit at-home use, and you will benefit from the control and insight into what your students are doing with their devices while in your classroom. Check out the MPS EdTech Teacher Tools page with all the details and be sure to share out the Parent Tools Lightspeed Parent Portal page so they can sign up!
Parents, watch the second half of the video or go to the Parent Tools/Lightspeed Parent Portal page. *Teachers, please be sure to share this out with your next parent message on Canvas, Seesaw, IC, parent email list, Thursday folders, or however you communicate; this account is not automatically setup for parents, so they have to go to this site and request account setup.
New Teachers joining the MPS family, WELCOME! You get a shoutout in the video as well, so be sure to checkout the New Teacher Resources if you haven’t already.

If you want to take a look at our EdTech Announcements from first semester, you’ll find all recent posts there as well as our archived tips and announcements on our EdTech Announcement page.
