NCS Blended Learning

Welcome to the Newark City Schools Blended Learning landing page. Due to the unprecedented safety measure of closing down Ohio's schools due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, NCS staff members have been working on creating materials for students to continue their learning online and at home. Those resources will be linked here.
For students unable to access these resources, we are making efforts to get the same resources to everybody. If you have difficulty accessing resources, please contact your building's principal by email. If you have questions about an assignment, please contact your child's teacher by email. If you do not know the teacher's email address, you can find it by visiting our staff directory and searching for the teacher's name. Click here to find the staff directory
Please find your child's grade level or school on the right side of this page. Elementary gym, music and art classes are also linked.
Every week, we are providing two gym, two music and one art class, to match normal schedules while in school. Families can choose which day of the week to do each lesson (or even spread them out among multiple days!) 
While we are providing these lessons for at-home instruction during this time, we don't want anyone to feel overwhelmed by the various assignments. When planning out your day of at-home instruction, make sure to plan breaks between assignments, and get outside when possible to play.
For the elementary grade levels, we are still working on the best ways to turn in assignments.
At the middle school level, all students will be using Google Classroom. You can find login instructions by clicking here. A video walkthrough is available at this link.
