January Board Meeting

December 20th, 2018

In the last 30 days we have had eighty-six help desk tickets opened, and we have closed ninety. We still have four help desk tickets open. The tickets do not include all the student walk ins that happen during the day, or other staff walk ins that may happen.

At this point in the school year we have officially completed Fall Testing Window for NWEA. I have put all the NWEA test scores in Synergy so that Parents, Students, and Teachers can see the students scores from their Synergy login. The next step is to organize the data for analysing it further.

Currently we are in the process of making instructional website for parents on what information is in the ParentVUE portal and how they can change contact info, etc. The link for the site we will be rolling out after the new year is: https://sites.google.com/carrabec.org/parentvue/ One part of ParentVUE that we have opened is the Test History. This shows their student’s test scores for MEA’s, NWEA’s and SAT’s (If applicable). For MEA’s we have the past 2 years, for NWEA and SAT we have the past three years. If the test information included the students performance level that is also included in what parents can see in ParentVUE. This information is also on the student portal StudentVUE for students to be able to see their test history.  We hope to add instructional videos as well to this site.

Things are going well this year, and part of this is due to the excellent technology staff we have this year, and part is also due to the efforts of the rest of the staff who have been embracing new ideas and trying new techniques in the classroom using the technology that we provide to them, while also looking to the future.
