If you want more information on what Edline is and how it works, keep reading.
Edline is a password-protected way for you to monitor your child’s academic progress online. Once you have activated your account, you can use Edline to:
- Check your child’s latest grades
- Receive email alerts when new grades are posted
- View your ‘Combined Calendar’ to see all homework assignments.
Edline was initiated by our school in 2011. Please realize that no system, no teacher, no child, nor parent is going to be perfect, so please be patient, kind, and understanding, as we all adapt to using this technology. There are a few guidelines and suggestions for you to follow as we start using Ed-line specifically and technology in general.
- Each teacher will post their grades according to what works best for their age group and classroom. Some may have several grades each week and some may not.
- Assignment listings will shift from the current posting to Edline. Because we have multiple teachers that may work with your child, all assignments may not be on the same page or in the exact same format.
- Teachers will update their grades for each child by Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. or sooner. Please realize this is a target time and there may occasionally be circumstances that make this target difficult to meet.
- Questions should be directed to the teacher and he/she will either answer the question or seek advice from someone else. Contacting the office first may just slow down a response since we will refer it to the teacher to solve the issue.
- Read and re-read all instructions carefully. Click here for the Edline Student Parent Quick Start Guide . Our test group found the instructions to be accurate and easy to follow. Most of the problems were due to individual interpretations.
General Technology and E-mail Issues:
- Remember when we dreamed of the days when technology would solve all our problems? Well, as we have all discovered, technology is great in many ways, but has created some new problems. Personal contact is still a more effective method of communicating for deeper concerns.
- Please understand that the teacher’s primary concern is teaching and dealing with their classroom. After school and on weekends they may have other obligations and commitments. For that reason, e-mails will be answered as soon as possible, but not always on that day.
- For most grade questions, a personal discussion with an appointment or a phone call is more likely to resolve the issue in a timely manner.
As we step into this new system please stay patient and ask the teacher for clarification on how to use the system more effectively.
