Parents can check grades online starting January 3 and plan for their child’s future.
“We have had to tell people all the time the systems are fully functional,” said Lonnie Lott, an IT administrator.
Despite the initial problems, the tool promises to be powerful for families who want to track student progress. There will be an academic planner which will allow families to map the path to graduation. The dashboard will show if the student is on track.
There will also be a mobile application available, so families can interact with teachers.
Previously, the district used the Gradespeed program. Shutting that down to start the new system, and then not having the system available, caused a great deal of frustration among parents.
