We want to improve parental involvement. Can you help?

Yes. The best way to keep parents involved with their child's education and with your school is to provide parents with useful, actionable information. School Site Manager is designed to make it easy to get timely information onto your website quickly and easily. One of the most useful fields on the course section pages for parents is How Parents Can Help. Encourage your faculty to help parents help the students by providing specific suggestions.

Discipline Manager, Intervention Manager and Tutoring Manager help keep parents involved by sending specific emails about their child's events and issues to keep parents in the loop.

School Site Manager includes a Newletter feature that can be used to push information to parents about recent accomplishments and upcoming opportunities. Each newsletter automatically maintains an archive of past issues as well as a subscription list that provides self-service subscribe or unsubscribe.

School Site Manager also has blogs associated with staff members, course sections, departments and extracurriculars. One of the handy but often unappreciated uses of a blog is as a specific news channel. For example, a blog for an extracurricular such as the chess club or gymnastics team, is a great place to summarize the results of each competition. Keep parents and fellow students informed and engaged with news specific to a student's activities.

Parent Tips provides useful information on a daily basis. Parent Tips can be used to put a new tip on the website or email a new tip to parents every week day. Not only will parents receive useful parenting information in easily digestable chunks, but they are reminded of the service your school is doing for the students every day.

How does automatic student updating work?

We have the ability to automatically update the data about your students to Edclick products. When changes are made in your student information system, they can automatically be mirrored in the Edclick database.

Here's how it works.

  • You create a process to automatically pull a file of student data from your student information system.
  • We provide you with software that runs periodically that checks whether the data has changed, encrypts the data, then sends it to the Edclick server.
  • On the Edclick server, we verify that the data is from an authorized source.
  • We then validate the data. If there are problems with the data, notifications are sent. Examples of problems that we often detect are poorly formed email addresses and phone numbers and notations in fields where they should not occur.
  • If the data passes validation, it is merged with your current student data. New students are added. Students no longer on your list are archived. Data fields are updated.

If you would like to add automatic updates of your student data, contact support@edclick.com.

Can Tutoring Manager specify tutoring to the level of individual learning standards?

Yes. When assigning a student to tutoring, one often wants to student to master a particular body of knowledge or a particular skill. In assessing the effectiveness of the tutoring (or the tutor), one needs to know what to assess.

Although Tutoring Manager can be used to track generic tutoring assignments (e.g., "catch up in math") it can also be specific to individual learning standards. In addition, tutors can be qualified in general (e.g., "Math") or can be qualified for particular learning standards. The latter opens the possibilities for maintaining a database of students who tutor their peers on specific learning standards.
