Attention Beaver Falls Middle School students and parents:
It may take a few days for your child to get logged in and ready to go. This first week will be used to get the student body set up and working. PLEASE TRY TO NOT LET THE FIRST FEW DAYS BE TOO OVERWHELMING. BFMS staff will help parents and students get used to the new way of doing things. Remember, if there are any problems or issues, please contact your child’s homeroom teacher as your first contact. They are available during the school day. You can expect prompt communication during the 10 am and 2 pm hours, but feel free to email at any time. BFASD staff and faculty really appreciate the support and patience from the Beaver Falls Community. Please, everyone stay safe.
Students will be using three websites/programs in order to access their digital learning.
Pearson Insight: All BFMS Math Courses
Google Classroom: All BFMS Related Arts (Elective) Courses
GradPoint: All BFMS ELA, Science, and Social Studies Courses
Parents/Guardians: We are aware of the Adobe Flash issues in Pearson GradPoint. We understand that certain tablets and phones will not display the content and you are prompted to download Adobe Flash. Please do not try to download this as it will not work on phones and tablets. The District is working with the vendor to provide a work around. If available, the best devices to use with GradPoint are a Personal Computer or Chromebook running the Chrome Browser. We have listed instructions on how to bypass flash issues while using the Chrome Browser on PC’s or Chromebook, if you can not see certain content. The slide show is listed below. Again this only applies to PC’s and Chromebooks, not tablets and phones.
Go to https://bbfasd0776.v2.gradpoint.com to find your ELA, social studies, and science courses.
Second: Pearson Realize
Go to https://www.pearsonrealize.com/index.html#/ , and click Sign In to find your math course.
Third: Google Classroom:
Go to www.google.com then login to your school email and use the nine dot Google menu to find Google Classroom, or click on the link in the email your teacher sent you.
Usernames and Passwords:
Pearson Insight: Students should know this information. If there are any username or password issues, please contact the math teacher by phone or email for assistance.
GradPoint: The initial username and password will be emailed to each student by homeroom teachers. BE SURE TO CHANGE PASSWORD AFTER FIRST LOGIN. If there are any username or password issues, please contact the student’s homeroom teacher.
Google Classroom: Google Classroom uses the student’s school Google account. The class invites will be sent by related arts teachers. Students can log into their accounts at google.com then use the nine-dot google menu button to find the Google Classroom icon.
Please contact your student’s homeroom teacher via email if there are any questions.
