Curriculum Resources

Please use the bars below to find your subject area and see student login instructions. For many of these resources, you will need to use the Chrome browser and log into your school account.

For security reasons, teachers will need to access staff instructions in the shared Online Curriculum Startup folder. (If you are a teacher and do not have this link, please contact Jen Cleven at jenniferc@ckschools.org)

Please note that not all adopted curriculum has an online component.

For account/login assistance please contact Jen Cleven at jenniferc@ckschools.org.

Chrome at Home

Install Chrome

In order for a student to access Google Drive and Chrome settings from a device other than a Chromebook at school, he/she will need to have Google Chrome installed on the “other devices” that they plan to use.

Sign In

Once you have installed Chrome on your device, you will likely be prompted to sign in. ** (see notes below)

  • Use the CKSD Google Account and password that you received at school. Do not create a new account.
  • Once you have signed in with your school Google account, choose “YES - SYNC DATA.” All of your settings and documents should sync. You will have access to the same extensions/add-ons/bookmarks, and your Chrome environment will be set up the same as you see on the Chromebook at school.

*IMPORTANT NOTE*:  If you use Chrome on a shared device, please make sure that you sign completely out of Chrome when you are finished. Closing Chrome does not sign you out. Click your name or profile icon (wherever you see it) and choose “Sign out.”

If you are still signed in, other people will be able to browse and make changes within your account.  

**ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE**:  If you have a personal gmail account (separate from your CK account) do not access that gmail account while logged into Chrome with your school account.  This can merge the two accounts.

Accelerated Reader (for participating schools)
