Secondary TeacherVUE Documentation for Synergy

This page contains resources for completing specific tasks in Synergy TeacherVUE. Videos, that usually contain more detailed instructions than the PDFs, are currently being updated to be specific to the needs of secondary teachers. If a video requires a password to view, contact your TSS.

Currently, two teachers will guide your video learning.

  • Mrs. Jess Wingit uses her first grade Synergy account to demonstrate tasks that are very similar between elementary and secondary teachers.
  • Ms. Penelope Socrates demonstrates tasks that are unique to secondary teachers.
