Parents can track student progress on the Web

From the CEC Smart Brief:

Parents in Lake County, Fla., will have electronic access to their children's test scores and homework grades this year, via a revamped school district Web site. Superintendent Anna Cowin said the site is part of the district's effort to improve parent-teacher communications. Orlando Sentinel (Fla.) (free registration) (12/30)

This is a very important part of [their] Web site as it will give parents up-to-date access to student records and progress (see Informed Parent link). Even teachers are creating their own class websites and class blogs (see my class website) for this reason , this is so feasible. I really hope that our school/ school district can upgrade our technology and make this difference like Lake County Schools in Florida is aiming for.

- Teachers will soon input test scores, homework scores, attendance records and progress reports so parents can readily access the information
- Virtual daily monitoring and make communication easier for everyone
- Teachers, students, and parents will use the updated site with individual passwords for security
- Detailed information on academic standards for each grade level and further resources and links also will be included at the site
- The Web site expands on the current "homework hotline," which allows students to reach a tutor during specified hours. Tutors will be online as well so students may receive information while they are online doing homework.

There is an active ongoing campaign to raise awareness of the Asphyxia Activity known as the Choking Game. Parents, educators, and concerned parents have joined together to campaign the DARE program and Elementary/Middle School Health Programs to include asphyxia activity into the
current programs. Children and parents need to be educated to the
dangers of this activity.

Asphyxia activity is known all over this country, Canada and the world. There's a great chance that your child or grandchild, niece or nephew has already heard of it and has tried it or may be enticed to play it. Children as young as 6 years old have explained it to shocked parents. They don't know the deadliness or the dangers of permanent disabling brain damage, they think it's fun, safe and silly. Please help by signing
the petition below. The life you save in the future may be a child who means the world to you.

A Petition for D.A.R.E / Elementary and Middle School Health programs to incorporate Asphyxia Activity into the cirricula has begun to
circulate - Show that we insist on keeping our children safe. Please feel free to post this link on your own blog or website and forward it to your address book! The more signatures, the bigger the impact! "Sign or print a paper version of the Petition at
