Abstract

This idea proposes an improvement to existing Student Information Systems (SIS). In addition to known school-to-student, student-to-school, and school-to-parent information flows, the improvement provides for parent-to-school information flows. Proposed examples of information flow include sick notifications, parental permission, parent volunteering, and child medical forms. This idea proposes that the SIS Parent Portal provide an input/upload mechanism into the school district processes to enable parental input without requiring phone calls or paper to be sent to the schools.

Proposed examples of information flow include sick notifications, parental permission, parent volunteering, and child medical forms.

This idea proposes that the SIS Parent Portal provide an input/upload mechanism into the school district processes to enable parental input without requiring phone calls or paper to be sent to the schools.

Currently, parents can log into the school district’s SIS Parent Portal and obtain information from the system. However, the accessible information is limited.  Parents can typically get student attendance data, homework, class work, and quiz / test grades along with aggregate scores at an intermediate or marking period frequency. Virtually no capability exists to upload information to the SIS. Parents have to call a school to report that a sick child is staying home. When a student is going to go home on a different bus with a friend, parents have to send in a

Slips are sent in to warn that a child will be picked up early for an appointment. Parents can print homework at home, but have to send it in with their children (hardcopy or USB memory sticks)...
