D2L can be accessed through http://dl.cssd.ab.ca or the link to your right. There is no designated parent log-in. D2L can be accessed through the student account. Each student has a unique username and password meant to be shared with parents or guardians only. The username and password are the same ones used to log-on to the computers at school. The passwords will be their 6-digit ID number. Note: if the 6-digit ID number is not working, your son or daughter may have changed the password. If you would like your son’s or daughter’s password reset, then please contact his or her subject teacher.
Please read the pamphlet below to answer any questions you may have regarding D2L.
Desire2Learn, also known as D2L, is an online application used in junior and senior high classes in the Calgary Catholic School District. Teachers are posting news items, course content and assignments. Students may be using many tools in D2L including the dropbox to submit assignments, and the grades tool to check on their grades and receive personalized feedback regarding their work. Using the students’ login credentials, parents may also access D2L to view detailed information about coursework.
Similar to high schools in the district, the D2L grades tool will be used consistently across all junior high schools during the 2011-2012 school year. Junior high school teachers will use the D2L online environment to securely calculate, manage and share assessment with students and parents. This will allow students and parents to review grades continually from home at any time throughout the year.
Teachers will now use a cumulative grading model to generate report card grades for students which will be calculated on a continual basis, always showing the most current reflection of student performance. Report cards will continue to be printed at regular intervals throughout the year with student grades while D2L grades will provide ongoing communication regarding student progress. Please contact your school principal or Junior High Alberta Initiative for School Improvement (AISI) teacher for more information regarding D2L and grading for junior high students.
