Flash Player Download for Teachers
Teachers using the Focus Web site must have the Macromedia Flash Player installed on their computer for the Focus to function properly. Students using the Focus Web site do not have to download the Flash Player.

The Flash Player download is free and only takes about a minute on a 56k connection. First, you'll first need to click the "Uninstaller" link below that best fits your system. This step removes all existing versions of the Flash Player from your computer.
