Full Description/Meeting Details:

The Skyward Sky Cap Training is intended for School Skyward Captains (Sky Caps) responsible for training and supporting staff on the teacher portal (Gradebook and Attendance) at their school site. This training is intended for Sky Caps on all school levels.

  • Utilize Grading tools Generate Reports

Space is limited per class so register early to ensure your attendance. It is highly suggested to carpool with other participants as parking is limited at the training site. Participants will need to bring laptops and chargers.

 

Please note that there is a 15 minute policy for this training.  This means you cannot be more than 15 minutes late at the beginning, returning from lunch, or leaving early.  This results in no admittance.  If you cannot stay for the duration of the training, please remove yourself from the course.

 

Participants needing additional security access other than their assigned default permissions will need to have the additional security access completed by their school principal at least 2 weeks before the training. Principals can refer to the Modifying Security – Principals course for further details. 

 

The Skyward Basics Course, located in Canvas, must be completed prior to the participant’s first face-to-face training. Participants must finish the quiz at the end of the course to complete this training. Participants can access the Skyward Basics Course by clicking here. This course will provide each participant with the necessary background knowledge of the functionality and navigation within the system. 

In addition to the face-to-face training, a Sky Cap Canvas Course is available in the OCPS Canvas Catalog.

You are encouraged to arrive early in order to find parking and your classroom before training starts. The Skyward Teaching and Learning Training Site is located at 905 Waltham Ave, Orlando, FL 32809. Upon arrival, participants are required to check in at the auditorium for the exact training room location. Doors open at 8am.
