It's not the mountains we conquer, but ourselves
Dear Summit or STEM Parent/Guardian,
We are excited to send you the parent access information to the Summit Learning platform. Reminder, Summit will be where you go to check on your student's grades and learning for their Math, Social Studies, English, and Science classes.
You will use the following information for your first log in but then be able to change your username to your preferred email and a personalized password.
Username: [parent username]
Passcode: [parent default password]
Once logged in for the first time you will want to go to the menu on the upper left of the page and change your password and under "Change Account" enter your preferred email address. With these two changes you will now be able to login to your student's platform using your chosen email and password.
Now that you are in Summit feel free to explore knowing that you can't break anything. But you can access a lot more information about your student's learning. Look forward to the weekly parent communications about how powerful Summit can be in supporting your child in their learning and growth.

Columbia High School
Columbia High School has been selected to be one of more than 100 school districts across the country (and one of only three from the central valley) to partner with Summit Learning, a free program that provides teachers and schools with the resources they need to bring personalized learning into their classroom.
School leaders applied for the program because the school shares a common vision with Summit Learning: students should be at the center of learning.
The backbone of Summit’s approach is the online Personalized Learning Platform (PLP). Developed by teachers from Summit Public Schools in the San Francisco Bay area with technical assistance from Facebook engineers, the Summit PLP helps students set both short and long-term goals (while tracking progress towards these goals), prioritize their work, learn content at their own pace, complete deeper learning projects that apply real-world situations, and reflect on their learning. Teachers are able to better customize instruction to meet individual students’ needs and interests, including utilizing a variety of tools, many hands-on. This approach is supported by technology that allows both students and teachers to create and carry out individual learning plans and track progress towards goals.
The school will begin implementing the program and the digital platform this school year for students in ninth grade.
This partnership aligns perfectly with the school's strategic plan; a framework for student success which empowers students to create, innovate, investigate, collaborate, communicate, solve problems, lead, reflect, and serve.
This tool will help educators deliver personalized learning and its component goals of Learning, Readiness, Resources, and Engagement through participation in the Summit Learning program and will be empowered to able to adopt this Personalized Learning Platform as a digital vehicle to fit the needs of their students.
This platform not only provides the ways and means for students to be intensively focused in their education initiatives, but involves parents as well. Parents will be able to see the entire curriculum, feedback from teachers, and their child’s progress.
