4. How Do Class and Nucleus Work?

  • Go to Canvas first and then Class every day!
  • Access Class from Today's Live Classes Button.
  • Never save/bookmark the link to Class.
  • Your student's attendance in live Class sessions is automatically updated to Nucleus.
  • You do not need to add time for live class attendance.
  • Adding additional work time in Nucleus will not take the place of missing a required live class session.
  • Students must stay for the entire live class session in Class to be counted for attendance.

Attendance is cumulative for the entire year
