Board to expand 'Parent Portal' to cover all its schools

Posted May 12, 2014

Simcoe County District School Board's (SCDSB) pilot project launched in January that provides parents and guardians of students attending Bradford District High School and Nantyr Shores Secondary School with "quick access to their children's attendance, final grades, graduation progress and school announcements" will be available at all its elementary and secondary schools starting next fall.

The Parent Portal will be available to custodial parents, legal guardians, adult students and parents with access rights to the child. Set up daily, weekly or monthly email alerts for attendance information.

"Once the pilots are complete, usage, implementation and troubleshooting data will be collected and analysed," according to John Dance, Superintendent of Facility Services, in his report to the Board's Program Standing Committee. "New features and additional content will be added as the portal grows."

Information from Bradford and Nantyr sites will be used to: 1. determine the most effective method of getting login information to parents; 2. determine the level of technical support required by parents and school staff; 3. develop a collection of frequently asked questions for an upcoming support document; 4. assist the Information Technology Services and Software Development departments in troubleshooting content and software.
