Virtual Days

Virtual DaysHello Families,

Teachers are in the process of putting together their virtual school plans.  They will share this information with students through email and Google Classroom. Information will also be available through teacher websites.

Visit VirtualDays.BuncombeSchools.org for more information. 

A few links and reminders that may be needed:

Student email addresses
 
can be found in Google Drive. The formula is: 
first initial last name last four digits of ID number @k12bcs.org - no spaces
such as astudent1234@k12bcs.org


IAM
my.ncedcloud.org
This site should be bookmarked on student devices but the shortcut occasionally stops working or disappears. BCS students use this link as a single sign-in tool to access many apps for learning including Google Drive, Canvas, and SchoolNet.  Clever includes links to NewsELA, iReady, Sora, and a number of other sites.
The username and password are the same as the device login.

Z-Scaler

Z-Scaler is our filter for the BCS devices.  Some websites require a Z-Scaler login to determine if students can access the site. The Z-Scaler login is:
student ID number@k12bcs.net, same password as the computer password.
(Students frequently call this number their lunch number.)
Example: 1234567@k12bcs.net and usual password


Installing Zoom
Zoom is a way teachers can video conference with their students.  The connection will happen from the teacher's end but the students do need to install Zoom first.
