About

Students and staff use technology everyday in the high school. From the time someone enters our building to the conclusion of the day, technology is everywhere! Whether it is students conducting Internet research in the library, writing a research paper in the classroom, creating presentations in the computer lab, creating music in the keyboarding lab or teachers using LCD projectors and SMARTBoards in the classroom, technology is an integral part of the Unionville High School experience. Students and parents also utilize this technology at home when they visit the school website for the latest news, work on homework in Canvas, check on student progress using PowerSchool, access the Library's online resources, sign in to a Google Apps account, access an online textbook or follow school events on the website, just to name a few examples. The Educational Technology Roadmap presented and adopted in March of 2014 calls for increasing technology integration into our instructional program.

Student Logins

One of the most important things you will need in order to login to the many resources here at Unionville High School is your username and password as well as your Google e-mail address.

Your campus username is: your last name + first name initial + your graduation year (example, smithj19)

Check with the UHS tech department in room 245 if you do not know your password.

Your Google e-mail address is your username@ucfsd.net (example, smithj19@ucfsd.net)

Canvas

Canvas is UCFSD's Learning Management System or LMS. It’s an organizational framework for students to interact with teachers and courses, all in one place. Students will be able to login to Canvas from the high school website and see all their courses, assignments, announcements and a calendar. NOTE: PowerSchool will still be the place of record for all course grades.

Students use their campus login to access Canvas and should stop by the tech office (room 245) if they are having difficulties logging in.

Parents may also sign up for a Canvas "Observer" account. Parents (Observers) can link their Canvas account to their student's account so they can see assignment dues dates, announcements, and other course content. Observers can view the course content but cannot participate in the course.

To sign up for a Parent Account:

  1. Visit the UCFSD Canvas page at ucfsd.instructure.com
  2. At the top of the login box, locate "Click Parent of a Canvas User? Click Here For an Account"
  3. You will need to provide your name, your email address as well as your child's username and password
  4. Click Start Participating and follow the instructions.

PowerSchool

PowerSchool is the UCFSD student information system. Both students and parents/guardians have access into the system via the high school website. Primarily, students will use PowerSchool to check class schedule, grades, and request course placement for the next school year.

Students use their campus login to access PowerSchool and should visit the tech office (room 245) if they are having difficulties logging in.

Parents may also sign up for an account. Parents can use this account to also see their child's class schedule and grades as well as attendance reports. Parents can also schedule emailed grade notifications with this account.
