Zoom is an online meeting platform that allows teachers and students to have a virtual class or meeting during distance learning.

Changes to Zoom Sign-in


SCUSD has made changes to our Zoom settings to increase security and student privacy, and we will continue to adjust these settings based on feedback from the community.

Please review the below steps carefully, as beginning October 12 some students will be required to sign in to Zoom meetings using their SCUSD email and passwords.

Common Questions

Help! We can’t get in!

If the steps below aren’t working, follow the steps in this troubleshooting form to walk you through common problems. Access to instruction is our priority.

What if I need to meet with my child’s teacher?

No problem! Your teacher can invite you to a Zoom meeting just like always.

How is inappropriate behavior being handled? 

As a district, SCUSD aims to eliminate punitive discipline and replace it with interventions that are consistent, timely, and appropriate.  We provide interventions and support when inappropriate behavior first surfaces and  may follow up with disciplinary action, when necessary and appropriate. Each student and parent sign the Student Acceptable Use Policy, which has been updated for distance learning. We encourage you to review it for continued guidance regarding student behavior. 

If you have concerns, please talk to your child’s teacher.
