Parents’ participation and involvement play a huge role in student success. It can lead to positive outcomes for both the school and its students. In this article, we will discuss how a School Information System can help increase parental involvement and participation in schools.
There are various ways parents can be more involved and engaged in schools. From volunteering in classrooms, attending school events, and regularly communicating with teachers, to actively participating in their children’s academic progress.
In our ideal world, for a school, there is no other satisfying moment than to see your student, who used to be a 6th grader, now become a high school graduate. Perhaps you even knew them since Kindergarten! It is a harsh reality that sometimes parents do take their kids out of a school. The reasons behind them enrolling their children in a different school may vary. It could be reasons unrelated to the school’s performance. For instance, parents have to be relocated for career-related reasons hence they have to withdraw their child from the current school. However, there are also parents who are unhappy in their current school which results in families leaving schools.
Today, we will be discussing efforts that can be made in order to keep student families happy and ensure returning students for the following semesters. Since the students and their families are the reason the school is open, it is important to understand why they may leave and how you can prevent this from happening.
Among the many enhancements made to the gradebook feature, we’ve now switched on the ability for parents to take a look at their children’s gradebooks too. It’s a live, real-time indicator of progress across all the classes that a student takes.
Let’s first take a look at what a teacher would enter into his Intermediary Math 6 class’ gradebook.
As you’ll see, there are now 4 assignments and 1 quiz that has been graded for every student in the Intermediary Math 6 class.
