Distance Learning FAQ
Q: Where can I access distance learning for summer school?
A: All distance learning information is centrally located in our Clever portal.
Q: What is Clever?
A: Clever is a single sign-on portal to all your child’s online learning platforms, including weekly distance learning lessons, exit tickets, Zoom, and PowerSchool. Remembering multiple website addresses, usernames, and passwords can be tricky, but with Clever you only have to remember one!
Q: How do parents access Clever?
A: To log in to Clever, go to https://clever.com/in/athlosjp. Your username is your student ID (lunch number) and your password is your child’s birthdate (The birthdate must be entered in the following format: MM/DD/YYYY). Once you’ve entered your login information, you’ll be taken to your child’s personalized portal. From there, you can click on any of the resources, and you’ll be automatically logged in. It’s as simple as that!
In case you’re more of a visual learner, here’s a short video that also explains the process: https://youtu.be/nb5Y8RWQowA

Q: What are the system requirements for i-Ready?
A: For computers and laptops, the following browsers are supported:
For iPads, please use the i-Ready for Students app with iOS 13. I-Ready is not currently compatible with iPhones or Android tablets or phones.
Q: What if my family doesn’t have a device that supports i-Ready?
A: Please contact your school administrator for support to access technology.
Q: Why is i-Ready logging less time than my student is online?
A: Instructional usage time on task is calculated only when students are working on their lessons within i-Ready. Components can include the tutorials, practice, and quizzes. The components in a lesson vary depending on the complexity of the skill being taught. For example, some lessons may only have a tutorial and a quiz, while others may have a tutorial, multiple practice components, and a quiz. You can see this information by pulling up the lesson preview box. Any of the components listed ARE counted toward time on task.
The time students spent in other assessments (Growth Monitoring, Standards Mastery) or time spent in My Stuff (changing theme, study buddy), playing games, etc. does not count toward the instructional usage time on task.
