Most district resources (Google, CMS, iXL, etc...) can be access without going through U5 Cloud. Students can use U5 Cloud if they need access to certain programs (i.e. Office) or want to attend class while at home (i.e. Homebound students) through LanSchool.
When connected to the U5 Cloud, your child is accessing a server on the Unit 5 network, and is filtered the same way as they are when at school. Students are not filtered while at home using their personal device unless the sign into U5 Cloud.
|Printing||Students who rent a district laptop do not have the ability to print from that device (on or off of the Unit 5 network).|
|Using Office and SMART Notebook from U5 Cloud||If you need to use these programs on a device, please read this document, which outlines how to save and retrieve files from the U5 Cloud.|
