The funding for this effort would not be possible without the partial support of grant funds from Microsoft. The redesign has opened the door for many improvements increasing parent access for monitoring individual student performance. With the recent changes, parents are now able to log onto our website go to "quick links" on the main page and click on the "parent portal." Once you initially log in as a parent, you have complete access to your child's recent grades from middle through high school. In the near future, parents will also be able to see any attendance or disciplinary issues that their child may be experiencing. It is our hope that this access will allow our parents to honor their children when doing well, and have the fierce conversations to support their children in making healthy decisions when necessary. I invite you to try out.the many features available on our site. Are you interested in current educational news from around the state, or educational items from our state legislature? If so, just click on "Educational News" and you will obtain live news feed from the Sacramento Bee and the California Department of Education. As all features become available in the months to come, you will be able to access every school's calendar in the district, and select the calendars of interest to automatically populate your home com- puter calendar, enabling you to easily keep track of school events affecting your family. This is just a taste of things to come, as we gradually begin to activate the many features of our new web page. My thanks to our department leaders and the technology staffs for assisting us in making this communication upgrade a reality. Special thanks to those who have taken the time to indicate their support of our efforts to increase communication to our communities. Sincerely, Glenn R. Harris, Superintendent
