Director Portal

Welcome to the 2021-22 Audition Page for Directors! Please utilize this page to get information to singers for 2021 Auditions.

Same Process:

We are continuing the same process we established last year of online auditions. This means students only need to click one link to sign up for a time and register! Here is the process:

  • Use the information below to communicate YCCM info in class, through email, or your Learning Management System (Schoology, Google Classroom, etc.), or ALL OF THE ABOVE!
  • Have current YCCM students talk in class about YCCM (especially those who have been in two years so they can speak to a "normal" year).
  • Students sign up for auditions.
  • YCCM will send you a link to a recommendation form for students who need a recommendation

Here is information for you to use in your classes and learning management systems:

SCHOOLOGY USERS:

You can plug a resource right into your Schoology courses!

  1. Copy this link: https://app.schoology.com/resources/public/4845607899/profile
  2. You may have to replace "app" in the link above with your school's address (mine is https://isd47.schoology...)
  3. Click the "+" sign, browse to your resources, and add the resource to your course(s)

Here is a video (without audio) explaining the process of adding to Schoology.
