Training for School District Staff
Step 1 - How do I know what training I need to do?
First, go to Employee Self Service (ESS). You can access Employee Self Service (ESS) on the district website under the staff tab. Remember, the login is your F number, but the password is a unique password different from your regular district password. If you don't remember your password, you can click the "Forgot your password?" button. If you are locked out or need help with your password, you can call Kathy Port at 452-2000 ext. 11324 to get help with getting that reset.
Once you’ve logged on, go to the Certifications tab . The Certifications tab will show you all your required trainings along with the date the training expires. Look at the expired column to see which trainings you have that are either expired or are about to expire that is what you need to complete.
The list of all mandatory FNSBSD trainings and the location of each training can be found on the
Step 2 - Where do I get the training?
For the 2017-2018 school year, all training must be accessed through Canvas.
Staff members who do not already have a Canvas account, must first go to Canvas and log in with their f-number and district password. Logging in will create an account. Once logged in, you will see a navigation bar on the left-hand side with a link to Canvas Catalog. To access the professional development courses, click on the Take a Professional Development Course link. If this link isn't visible, go to the Login button in the upper right-hand corner and log in with your district f number and password.
Step 3 - My training is done, how do I get my certification completion updated on ESS?
When a Canvas course is completed, a certificate of completion is sent directly to your email. To locate your certificates on your account, follow these directions: Canvas Certificates.
Email your completed Canvas training certificate to email@example.com. Please be patient your records will be updated as soon as possible, but this may take a day or two.
Can I get a CEU credit for this training?
Human Resources will be awarding Continuing Education Units for courses taken on Canvas Catalog. For more information, please go to the Continuing Education Unit page.
