Online Grades: A Beautiful Thing

Our school district has launched an online portal allowing parents (and students if they have the log in info) to check grades and attendance.

I was already used to this, from my student teaching experience, and now as a teacher I'm loving the potential implications for our district.

This transparency potentially eliminates uncertainty, while streamlining communication. It also bolsters accountability - parents and students with a Net connection are able to gauge the student's performance with a few mouse clicks.

No surprises, no excuses - it's all online.
