ParentConnection offers parents unprecedented access to their children’s grades, assignments, attendance records, and more. Parents can even set “triggers” to automatically alert them via email, or text message when their students receive low grades, or are marked absent.
Parents can sign up for their own ParentConnection accounts using a simple web form – it’s as easy as signing up for a web-based email account. https://chandler.gradespeed.net/pc
With the ParentConnection module:
· Parents can view all recent, upcoming and past assignments for each student.
Grades for each assignment will appear with the assignment.
Teachers can also attach documents to individual assignments for download
· Parent can view a cumulative list of all their students’ grades.
· Parents can access attendance data for their student(s).
· Parents can set up “trigger” notifications that allow them to receive alerts when a grade drops below a certain threshold or when their children are marked with an attendance event. Of note, alerts can be sent by email or text message.
· Parents can send notes to teachers from within ParentConnection, and receive notes and documents in return
Limitations you can expect with this report method:
- Grade books are works in progress, reflecting changes as students turn in work missed or re-done for the higher grade. Depending on course policies, therefore, grades may rise and fall during the grading period.
- Grades that appear on GradeSpeed ParentConnection are as current as the teacher's electronic grade book. Please allow adequate time for teachers to grade papers and enter the grades into the system. Remember, teachers have the full-time job of teaching, planning, collaborating, meeting, and assessing student work.
- Sometimes a major project or paper requires weeks, not days, to grade for the entire set of students in a course; therefore, though papers may have been turned in or tests taken, scores will not be posted until grading is complete.
We hope that timely and convenient viewing of your student’s progress will help us all encourage students to do their best.
Questions concerning your child’s grades need to be directed to the teacher.
