Excellence for Every Child
Based on data over the last couple of years, NMS is on its way to being recognized as an AVID School-wide Site of Distinction. "An AVID School-wide Site of Distinction represents the highest level of AVID implementation fidelity demonstrating excellence in instructional practice and the promotion of college readiness school-wide. This elite group of candidate schools represents less than 10% of all AVID middle and high schools worldwide.
This is the first year AVID is recognizing School-wide Sites of Distinction as part of the certification process." By utilizing strategies such as Cornell Notes, interactive notebooks, and Reading with a Pencil in order to better prepare all students for college and career, Northwest is one of two schools in the county to be given this distinct honor.
The Library Media Services department is pleased to introduce our new eBook platform, MackinVIA! Beginning June 6, 2016, MackinVIA will allow us to extend our traditional booklending library services into the digital world, providing your family 24/7 access to great reading materials. MackinVIA eBooks work just like regular library books, but in a digital environment. When you log in, you can search and browse for available titles, and when you find something you like, you can check it out in just a few clicks. When you’re done, simply return it online and then check out some more! These eBooks are available on any internet-connected device: laptops, smart phones, iPads, Kindle Fire tablets, etc. They can be used within a regular web browser, or you can install the free MackinVIA app to download your checked-out titles and read offline.
To access these eBooks, go to https://knoxschools.mackinvia.com/ Select your school from the drop-down menu. The username will be your child’s student ID number, which starts with the letter s and is followed by a six or seven digit number. The password will be your child’s Active Directory password, which is the same password they may use for other schoolbased online services such as Canvas, Google Drive, or to log on to Chromebooks.
