Here is a summary of  Waverly Park Elementary School / Fort Worth ISD online learning resources!

3. How to Reset Your Student’s My FWISD Password (if you haven’t already done so)

All passwords must be reset before beginning the 2020-2021 school year.

4. Logging into your student’s MyFWISD Portal

Watch the 1st half of this video: https://www.loom.com/share/013ad0fbbab7420ab5a2fd091cc01c7c


To log in: https://launchpad.classlink.com/fortworth

Use their student email (lowercase s followed by their lunch number @stu.fwisd.org) and their new password from Step 2.


If you (the parent) have a Microsoft account you’re automatically logged into on the device the student’s using (such as a hotmail account), be sure to log out first before trying to log in your student.


***IF YOU HAVE MULTIPLE STUDENTS SHARING ONE DEVICE, here are some tips:

  • Do NOT choose the “save password” or "keep signed in" options, as this will make it more difficult to switch between student profiles.
  • You can also try clicking on “incognito” mode. We’ve been told that makes it very helpful to switch between student profiles.
  • Also, be sure to log out of your personal account as noted above. Then, once you’ve logged in all your students for the first time (NOT saving their passwords or keeping them signed in), it should be easy to log any of them in because it’ll show all their student emails as an option.

Here’s another helpful video for everyone (you can watch it even if you don’t have an Instagram account): https://www.instagram.com/tv/B-KWTzsHFxn/…


The apps on your child’s My FWISD portal include Google Classroom, Achieve 3000, Renaissance Student (A/R Tests), Pathblazer, Office 365 (directly emailing teachers), and others depending on your student’s grade.


5. Logging Into Google Classroom

Watch the 2nd half of this video: https://www.loom.com/share/013ad0fbbab7420ab5a2fd091cc01c7c


Class codes were provided the morning of Monday, 4/6/20 by your student’s teacher(s). They also provided a code for the “Specials Classroom” (PE/Music/Art).


If it says you need a gmail account to access, log in with your student's email (slunchnumber) followed by @students.fwisd.org rather than @stu.fwisd.org.


The “stream” tab will have important messages from staff. Be sure to read it daily. The “classwork” tab will show the assignments and resources to review before completing the assignments.

Note that any comments made in Google Classroom are visible to the entire class, so consider contacting your teacher directly with questions.


6. Submitting Assignments in Google Classroom

Some assignments will need to be submitted and others may only require to be “marked as done.” Once submitted/marked, the assignment will show as “turned in” in the classwork thread.


How to TURN IN or MARK AS DONE Assignments- https://youtu.be/LKm6bUzXvKU    https://www.loom.com/share/9718440a6f1f4285852dbe59d7056abc


How to Upload Assignments- https://youtu.be/0W3_dt2V26w  (If you need to attach something before submitting an assignment; for example, a picture of a writing assignment if you don’t have the ability to type it directly into Google Classroom)


7.  Google Meet Information 

FWISD is now requiring Google Meet be used for web conferences. It has a closed caption option. You can only join a meeting using a link sent by your teacher. If your student is logged into their MyFWISD Classlink portal, it will automatically log them into Google Meet.
