Parent’s Guide

Behavior and Progress Reports

What makes our TECC Online program successful is including parents and guardians in their child’s learning.


Parents, if your child’s instructor hasn’t already done so, ask them to invite you to join:

  • ClassDojo (as Parents)
  • Google Classroom (as Guardians)

Teachers may invite you to other platforms they use that include parent/guardian access.

Troubleshooting

A number of things can happen during your child’s online learning session. Please take some time beforehand to go over these possibilities and how to address them.

  • Slow Internet
  • Internet outage
If you know how to restart your Internet router, show your child how to do it in case you’re unavailable. Alternatively, if your phone carrier includes hotspot service (all 4 major carriers do), enable it and set up the login information so your child can log into it and continue their online session.
  • Speakers/Headphones not working
  • Microphone not working
  • Can’t see what teacher is sharing
Every computer has a function to help troubleshoot any issues, but likely it is a matter of checking the plugs, batteries (wireless headsets/microphones), restarting the browser or computer, etc. If all else fails, turn on captions during the meeting.
  • Can’t access teacher’s Google Classroom, Meet, Calendar, etc.
Check that your child is on their TECC school email. It is likely that the browser your child is on is defaulting to someone else’s account each time they go to these sites.
  • On Windows/Mac Chrome browser, your child can set their TECC account as the default by logging off all accounts and logging back in to their TECC account first, making it the new default account.
  • On Chromebooks, students can add their TECC account as a separate profile and log in that way. Note: school district-issued Chromebooks may restrict what accounts can be used to log into their device.
  • Getting audio feedback when I talk

The computer’s microphone picks up any sound and transmits it to receiving computers. This includes the computer’s speakers. If you’re not wearing headphones and you turn on your microphone to speak, your microphone transmits your voice to all participants in the meeting, including your own computer. Meaning you’ll hear your voice transmitted back to you on your speaker. The audio loops and causes feedback as the whole process repeats with your microphone re-transmitting your voice from the speaker back into the meeting, back out to your on your speaker and so on.


It is important that your child wears headphones or earbuds plugged in to prevent the feedback from happening.

  • Visual impairment
  • Light senstivity
  • Modern computers have an HDMI port that you can plug into a HDTV. Your child can watch the meeting on a TV that’s 9 feet away instead in front of their face.
  • Students should turn on night light on their computer to reduce the amount of bluelight energy from off the screen, thus reducing long term retinal damage.
