PROCESS:

  1. Parents/Guardians will follow their student’s schedule for all periods 1-8 and use the Google Meets platform to attend classes. 
  1. To access our Google Meets you will need to enter with a bscsd domain and is easiest if you use your student’s Chromebook and/or ask for their assistance logging into the Scottie’s Dashboard.
  • If you are NOT using your student’s school issued Chromebook, then follow these directions:
    • Go to the Ballston Spa School District website – bscsd.org
    • On the top right hand side of the screen click on “Scottie’s Dashboard”
    • You will then be asked to sign in – Students must use their Ballston Spa username and password to log in parents/guardians with a bscsd domain. 
    • Click on the icon that says “Google Products”
    • Then click on the icon that says “Google Meet”
    • This where you will then see the screen that allows you to “Join or start a meeting”
    • You will then enter a Nickname for each teacher at the assigned time of the class
  1. Google Meet Nicknames will be unique for each teacher for the class in the format of BSMSlastname. For example, if you are attending math period 1 with Mrs. Jane, then at 6:00 you would enter BSMSJane in the “Join or start a meeting” box and click continue. The only exception to this format is for our teachers who share a common last name: For PE class with Mr. Watson the nickname is BSMSdWatson and for Science class with Mrs. Watson the nickname is BSMSaWatson.

(Please note that the nicknames are different from those used by the students)

  1. Student Schedules are available through the Parent Portal. You will follow the same order of classes as your student follows on their Friday schedule (again, the class Nicknames are different for Meet the Teacher Night).
  2. We have provided a graphic organizer for parents/guardians to complete ahead of time with the Class and Nickname to assist in the transition between classes/GoogleMeets – Please ask your student to assist you.
    • Two versions are attached below for download if preferred.
