One of the primary goals of The City of Baker School System is keeping our parents involved in their students’ progress. We are aware that in order for parents to be involved, they must first be informed. With the addition of the Student Progress Center aka Parent Command Center to our web site, we are able to competently meet that challenge of keeping parents abreast.
The Student Progress Center affords parents, with access to any computer, the opportunity to monitor progress in each subject taken by their student. The areas that can be monitored on a daily basis include:
The Student Progress Center is so current that parents are often made aware of grades, discipline, etc. before the students are. Additionally, teachers may enter grades in the system prior to giving assignments back to the students allowing parents using the Progress Center to become aware of the grade, in some cases, before the student.
As a complement to the Student Progress Center, The Baker School System operates the JCALL system. JCALL utilizes the telephone systems allowing parents who do not have access to a computer the ability to remain informed. All parents with a phone are automatically included in this program. There are several unique features to this system which make it infinitely more effective than previous phone systems.
. Among JCALL’s features are:
Additionally, JCALL informs parents regarding:
The addition of the Student Progress Center and JCALL to The City of Baker School System web site has improved parental involvement. We hear daily from parents expressing gratitude for the program. Additionally, we have seen an increase in student concern over grades, because our students know that parents are availing themselves to the program.
