Distance Learning Requirements

As part of Meriden’s plan, all students 9-12 will be required to complete the following, along with other materials from their teachers:

  • Aleks (Math) minimum of 60 minutes a week
  • NoRedInk (Writing/Grammar) minimum of 30 minutes a week
  • Reading Plus (Reading) minimum of 60 minutes a week

Below is information on how students will access each program:

ALEKs Math Program

  1. Students will go to www.Aleks.com or use the app from Classlink.
  2. To log in, teachers will post usernames on their Google Classrooms (they are not the usual ones.) The password will be mps followed by their lunch number, for example, mps54321.
  3. When they log in for the first time, they will be required to complete a Knowledge Check. This takes 45-60 minutes to complete and let’s the program know what the students know or don’t know.
  4. Once the Knowledge Check is complete, students will be given choices of topics and lessons that are specifically chosen based on their results.
