Academics

Your child's academic success is important to all of us at Mooresville Schools.  Please use the following links to learn about our school's various programs and academic tools.

 

Preparing for School

Our Preparing for Kindergarten page includes program, resource, and other information to take that big step into school.

 

Classroom Information

Skyward is our online reporting system for student grades, attendance, and other information. Families of each student receive a login so they may view online updates at any time. For questions about your login, contact your child's school office. If you would like to learn more about using Skyward, watch some of these 60-Second Skyward Video Tutorials to help you get started and learn system features. 

Canvas is a web-based tool used in grades 6-12 for teachers to share online assignments as well as media clips on various classroom topics. Students can use Canvas to upload assignments, ask questions, and participate in online discussions about coursework. Each student has a login to the securely filtered and monitored Canvas site.

 

Professional Learning Communities

Teachers at all Mooresville Schools take part in Professional Learning Communities each day before school. Instead of having a "staff in-service" day a few times each year, every morning teachers take part in workshops, cooperative lesson planning, and data analysis to share strategies that will provide interventions or enrichment for students who need differentiated learning.  Especially in middle and high school, this is an opportunity for multiple teachers with the same student to discuss a common learning plan. Days are also allotted for parent-teacher conferences during this time.  Learn more about the success of Professional Learning Communities nationwide.

 

Programs 

Destiny is our library program used to locate books within the district.

Accelerated Reader is a program which helps children to have individual reading successes.
