Welcome to the Springfield-Clark CTC! We are excited that you have chosen to further your education with us! Take a look at the videos and information below for how to get started with your CTC device.
Students should have received an email on their CTC email account asking them to confirm their FinalForms account to complete and sign their student forms. Students can only complete their portion of the forms after their parents have completed the majority of the forms. The forms listed below require a student signature.
In the top right corner of any New Tab, or within any Google app, is the Google Waffle. The icon looks like a waffle, or a 3x3 grid of dots. This is where you will find all of your Google apps, such as, Docs, Sheets, Slides, etc. You can use it to quickly switch between apps on the fly. If you open a Google app from a New Tab, the app will just open. If you open a Google app from within another Google app, the new app will open in a new tab and leave your old one alone. Also, you can rearrange the icons within the Waffle, so you can organize it however you like.
