July Board Meeting

June 25th, 2019

In the last 30 days we have had fifty-one help desk tickets opened, and we have closed forty-nine. We still have eleven help desk tickets open. The average close time for tickets is about 2 hours. The tickets do not include all the student walk ins that happen during the day, or other staff walk ins that may happen. 

We have published an 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 is: http://parentvue.carrabec.org  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.

It is that time, where we are now getting everything ready for the new school year. We have gone through all the 1 to 1 laptops in grades 4 through 12 and are now sending out the ones that need to be repaired and will begin any ordering that we need to do for next year. We are trying to work on a tight schedule as there are many changes that we are hoping to implement this year while also getting all the normal tasks complete.

 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.
