New Tech Tools

PowerSchool:
This is the on-line grading program which parents and students can access to see updated grades. This is also the program where we input all contact information for our students and parents.  


One Call Instant Alert System:
This tool is a notification tool used to alert families of closings, delays, emergency situations, upcoming events, and pertinent happenings in our buildings and district.  This is another feature of PowerSchool.


ECollect:
Instead of the multiple pages of forms and back to school paperwork coming home in a packet to be returned, we have decided to move to an online format - ECollect.  This is a new tool in PowerSchool that will simplify the process of collecting and inputting student data into our system.  This will also link all contact information to our One Call Instant Alert System.  An email with a code for each family to input information, will be coming soon via email.  Please note that the high school will still be doing a few forms in hard copy format.  These will be coming home with students on the first day of classes.  


Classlink:
One of the repeated suggestions from parents has been that we needed to have one place to find all of the different apps needed by students and parents.  Your needs have been addressed with the Classlink program.  This will be a “one stop shop” for all important applications which students and parents will need for their individual classes.  


Google Sites and GoogleClassrooms:
All of the high school staff will be using these tools as their primary classroom websites.  Students have used the Google tools in the past, but will be reminded on the first days of each class how to access and receive all class information.


In addition, we always encourage parents to look at both our school/district website and high school facebook page for current information.
