Technology Info. / SDS & Seesaw Links
Families that join OPHC will need an internet connection, because we keep track of the student's learning plan and progress in a program called SDS (short for School Data Solutions). The login link to SDS is listed below.
OPHC students have the option to check out a Chromebook from OPHC's library for their use. Students are provided a google account, with an ophckids.org email address which is also used to log into Seesaw, another online program we use as a communication tool (link below). Seesaw was made with elementary students in mind and is very easy to use; it is a place where students can post photos of their work and/or communicate with their teacher advisor. It is the preferred method of choice for weekly contact if a student misses workshops due to illness or other extenuating circumstances.
For relaying information about upcoming events and weekly news, we send "Monday Notes" out via email every Monday to parents of enrolled students. We also have two Facebook group sites, one for Clallam County students (attending workshops at the Methodist Church in PA) and one for Jefferson County students (attending workshops at the San Juan Baptist Church in Port Townsend) which we update with news and photos on a regular basis. Our FB groups are "closed" sites - they are only viewable to families of enrolled students.
