Wondering how your scholar will be supported both academically and socially/emotionally this year? We’ve designed this series of webinars especially for you and your scholar, with the goal of helping you have the best school experience possible. These webinars are open to all Osseo Area Schools families and students (all schools, including the Distance Learning Academy).

Live GoogleMeet webinars are available for up to 240 participants (by advance registration), and will be archived within one business day for 24/7 viewing on the district’s YouTube channel. Live participation allows you to submit questions via the chat function of GoogleMeet; a moderator will work to ensure that as many questions as possible are answered.

Please note:

  • A Gmail account is required in order to participate in these GoogleMeet webinars. If you do not have a personal Gmail account, you may work with your student to use their district-issued Google Apps email account (StudentUserName@apps.district279.org)
  • The webinars listed below will be in English only. We are working on ways to provide key content in other languages to post to our multilingual Facebook pages.
