A word about the parent portal for grades and the Student Handbooks

Returning families are accustomed to being able to log on through our website to "Infinite Campus" to see their child's grades, assignments due, etc. That portal is not yet operational, but is being piloted and will be up soon.  In the meantime, please email your students' teachers directly for updates on homework and how they are doing.  We are grateful for your patience as we build out all of the modules in this system. Student/Parent Handbooks have been distributed through advisories, and by now, your student should have shared it with you and acquired your signatures, which they then should have turned in. Additional information (August 27, 2012) from John Klein:

This summer we launched a new student information system.  The staff at Grand Center has been working very hard to make sure information is updated in the new system so that when we send out information it reaches you at the correct number or address.  Along with the updating we have also been doing a lot of training on the system with the staff as well.

In the next week we will be training the instructional staff on how to set their grade books up in the information system.  As we are doing that we will also be simultaneously setting up the parent portal component of our information system and sending out information on how to access your student(s) information.

We appreciate your understanding and patience as we continue to train our staff on the functions of this new system.  We have the auto-dialing feature working now and appreciate the vital feedback we received from some families on that component.  From that feedback we have made adjustments to how the calls are made and will continue to do that each time until we get the right combination down.  The same goes for each communication tool that we bring online for our parents and families.  Your input on how to make things better for all is valuable feedback and we couldn't ask for better partners in the educational setting.

If you have any questions regarding the parent portal or the communication tools please feel free to contact me at john.klein@confluenceacademy.org
