Rosetta Stone Online Upgrade

Hello CMP families,

During the month of July, we will updating our version of Rosetta Stone. This will impact those trying to access their Rosetta Stone learner accounts during this time.

This new upgrade will continue to engage students with foreign language learning using Rosetta Stone’s immersion language techniques and now games & activities will be added to reinforce language skills while providing practice opportunities for our students.

Student progress and data will be transferred over seamlessly, so learners will be able to start the new school year using Rosetta Stone right where they left off.

Please check back here for further information.
