How to Submit Assignments


Assignments can be submitted in the following formats:

  • .docx for use with MS Office

  • .odt for use with Open Office or Libre Office (free software)

  • .pdf for use with scanned assignments.  You can take photos of your work with your smart phone and merge them into a .pdf file using a scanning app such as Adobe Scan.

  • .rtf for use with other word processing software

    • Do not use notepad (.txt), wordpad, Pages (.pages) or Works (.wps). School District 57 does not support any formats except those listed above and we cannot open such documents for marking.

  • Other formats may be submitted as indicated on specific assignments. (E.g. .pptx, .xlsx, .odp, etc.)

Use the "Save as..." function to save the file with your name and the assignment name as part of the file name.

  • Example: j_smith_assign_1_2.doc

Ensure that the assignment has your name, course, contact information, and the assignment number clearly indicated on it.


Complete your assignment on the assignment file from your course, copy and paste your assignment questions into a word processor or complete your essay in a word processor. 

  • Students in Math, Chemistry and Physics courses should complete their work directly on the assignment sheet they print out and then may dropoff/postmail with a paper comment sheet available from our office or scan and upload to the course dropbox.

Save your completed assignment with  and upload to the assignment drop box.  See instructions below on how to upload:

  1. Scroll to the bottom of your assignment drop box.
  2. Click on the "Add submission" button.
