I am pleased to announce that Connect is now being implemented at Lesmurdie Senior High School. Connect is an integrated online environment developed by the Department of Education WA for staff, students and parents in public schools. Check out the short video clip on Connect below. ttps://vimeo.com/connectwa/welcome
How will parents access Connect?
Each parent will be emailed their own secure login to Connect. Connect is totally free and, because it is provided by the Department of Education, very safe. As well as being able to login to Connect on any internet-enabled device, you may also receive notices from Connect that will be sent to you as either an email or a notification on your phone. A free app called Connect Now can be downloaded from Google Play or the Apple App Store and will let you receive Connect notices as push notifications.
If you have multiple children you only need one login – even if your children attend different public schools.
When you login to Connect you will be able to see information specific to your own child/ren such as:
• The School Space where you can be notified about school information and events
• The classes in which your children are engaged
• Class calendars
• Assessment Outlines information drawn from Reporting to Parents
• Assessments and evidence for your own child (where applicable)
• Notices from your child’s classes that automatically generate an email or phone notification to you.
Lesmurdie SHS will automatically register you for Connect. You will confidentially be issued with your unique user name and password via email).
Frequently asked questions:
• Will you notify me when there’s a message or notice in Connect?
Yes. Currently when a teacher of your child/ren publishes a Notice an email is automatically sent to you letting you know a notice has been created. The message is included in the email, however, if you wish to access the images or files that are attached or add a comment (if the teacher has encouraged you to respond), you will be required to log onto Connect. Alternatively you may download Connect Now (free) from Google Play or Apple App Store and receive any notices as notifications on your phone.
• What if I don’t really use email?
Connect Now, a mobile app, enables all Connect parents to use their single sign on account details and stream all of the Notices and discussions in any of their child/ren’s classes to their personal mobile device. The app is free and can be downloaded from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
• Can I reply to messages?
The teacher will sometimes invite you to respond to messages. When this happens a Comment button will be visible under the Connect Notice. You can respond either by logging in to Connect or through the Connect Now app.
• Who else sees the class notices?
Only students and parents attached to a teacher’s class are able to access and read class notices.
• What if I forget my login details?
You are able to set verification questions to reset your own password (through the website https://connect.det.wa.edu.au then click on ‘Forgot my password’).
We hope that you enjoy the Connect experience and see it as an exciting new way for you to stay in touch with your child’s school journey. More information will be sent out at a later date to help you navigate the screens and make the most of Connect.
