Parents as Partners Episode # 32 December 3, 2009
Cindy Seibel show host shares her masters work with Matt Montagne and Lorna Costantini. Cindy developed a parent portal implementation guide.
From the guide, Cindy explains:
There is a significant body of research demonstrating the contribution of parent engagement to student learning. Based on this research, school districts are implementing technology solutions to support and improve relationships with parents with the hope of producing improved student outcomes. This project created an Implementation Guide for one technology solution, a K-12 Parent Portal.
The question what is a parent portal surfaced and Cindy responded to the question with the following video.
The challenge to all of us is to review the guide and then take it to parents and school boards to embrace and implement.
