Dear Parents and Guardians,
The district is currently reviewing how we acquire parental permission in our School District. Our current Field Trip Policy is under revision, as well as the regulations and supporting forms. We are also looking at the forms function in CIMS Parent Connect, along with an alternate product called Permission Click, to determine which one might be more “user-friendly”, in order to streamline the signing processes that occur each September and throughout the year.
In addition to the above, we are also considering the various ways that technological change should be reflected in our permission processes. As you may know, some of our teachers are using programs such as MyBluePrint and Freshgrade in some of our classrooms. If your child’s teacher is using one of these programs and you would like more information, please feel free to contact him or her. If you decide that you would prefer to have your child “opt-out” of using one of these programs, our teachers will support your child in accessing their learning in an alternative manner.
As always please feel free to contact any of us in the office if you have any questions or concerns.
