Learning Management Systems
MOT Charter School uses web-based learning management systems (LMS) to allow students easier access to the resources they need to be successful scholars. Benefits of these systems include: access to information 24 hours/day - 7 days/week from any location; centralized location for study materials and/or assignments and increased communication & collaboration with teachers and classmates.
For parents/guardians these systems provide the ability to view student registration, scheduling, grades, attendance, letter day, bus and grade information. Confidential username and password information is sent home at the beginning of the school year. Contact the main office if there are issues with your username or password.
Many of the tools we use allow "push" notifications, we encourage families to review the user guides and setup Alerts & Notifications in order to receive important communications in a timely manner.
Home Access Center (HAC) and Schoology are our primary LMS tools, please see below for more information., etc.
