[Part Two] 25 New Supports for Schools and Parents

In Part 2 of this video series, our panel discusses free new technology updates available to school districts in 2019.


In each of the short videos below, the panel chats about new applications for 504 tracking, ELL translation of report cards, new benchmark assessments, and lots more.

Missed Part 1? See it here.
 

New Student Alerts: 504, McKinney-Vento, I&RS, etc.
"We support a bunch of new student alert icons for students who are homeless, classified, have guardian issues, health alerts, a 504 or an I&RS plan.”

504 Tracker Integrated into OnCourse SIS
"504 Tracker is a fantastic application that comes completely free with the SIS." 


In-Out Scanning with Student ID Cards
“Students use their IDs to scan in and out of the different locations so administrators and teachers know where they are throughout the day.”

SIS Mobile Upgrades: The "Fire Drill App"
"When teachers leave the building with their students, you are supposed to grab your roll book. Now with the app you can do that online."
 

Standards-Aligned Benchmark Assessments for K-11
"If a district wants to author their own assessments, they can. Or, you can upgrade to include CenterPoint's benchmark assessments, which will be strongly aligned to PARCC."
 


Multi-Language Translation of Report Cards, Letters

“We can support up to five different languages. It triggers based on the primary language set in the student's profile for state reporting."

Support for "Second Chance Grading"
"There’s a concept that some educators believe in - if a student doesn’t get an assignment right the first time, you give them a second chance." 

OnCourse Connect: Daily Digest
"For our parents who want to stay more involved, this is one way to equip themselves with more information."
