Dear PYLUSD Students, Parents, and Guardians,
Congratulations on the successful completion of your first week of remote instruction. We have been so encouraged by the stories of your successful participation in our first few days. Even from a distance, we felt your excitement, and we look forward to your continued successes as we navigate this journey together.
We are pleased to announce that the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD) Board of Education recently took action to provide the educational support system Paper Learning for middle and high school students for the 2020-2021 school year. This online program provides live tutoring 24 hours a day/7 days a week.
Students can access Paper Learning via a Chromebook, computer, or mobile device. The tutors are trained to use the Socratic method to help students build their own learning instead of giving answers. Paper Learning connects individual student learning with classroom teachers, providing insight via a teacher dashboard. Teachers can use this tool to see where students are struggling and focus support.
Paper Learning provides support in math, science, social science, English/Language arts, and writing including the Essay Review component where students can upload their essays and receive feedback within 24 hours.
Students may access Paper Learning either through Clever or by logging in directly at www.paper.co with their PYLUSD Google account. If you want to learn more about Paper Learning, please click on the links to the YouTube videos below.
