What do we mean by digital learning day?Digital Learning Day began in 2012 as a way to ensure all students have access to high-quality learning opportunities. It is not about technology. It is about learning. Digital Learning Day promotes the effective use of today’s tools/online resources/digital content to improve the learning experiences for our students. Instruction includes opportunities for learning anytime and anywhere and individualized instruction to ensure all students reach their full potential.

K-3 Student Passwords and All Students' Access to Digital Learning ToolsAll CMS Students have access to a variety of learning tools from CMS Desktop computers and Chromebooks to Discovery Education and Canvas. In order to simplify access to these tools, CMS has been working to consolidate student usernames and passwords. The next step in this process is to create a login for K-3 students for many of the digital learning tools. This will require all K-3 students to also log into the desktop computers with their student ID and 8 digit birthday password (YYYYMMDD). This change will take effect on February 10th.
