In this increasingly technology dominated world, we are working to provide more information and resources electronically, i.e. on line, thus reducing the actual hard copies of informative reports that are mailed to parents. The main way that we can provide student academic information electronically to parents is via the Parent Portal. Via this portal, parents can view their child’s grades as often as desired. It is an excellent way to stay up-to-date on how your child is doing in his/her classes.
Currently, almost 70 percent of our students’ parents have a Parent Portal account that can be used to access children’s grades, attendance, assessment reports, etc. We encourage those who have not yet signed up for an account to do so, as more and more, we will rely upon the Parent Portal as our primary information source for parents.
To sign up and establish an account for the Parent Portal, a parent needs to visit our main office with a photo ID. The process takes no more than five minutes. Also, once an account in the Parent Portal has been established for any child at any grade level in our District, the account remains active and it is not necessary to sign up again. In other words, parents only need to sign up for the Parent Portal once in their child(ren)’s time in our District.
The first quarter report cards will be posted and available for viewing on the Parent Portal beginning Thursday, Nov. 19. We will mail hard copies only to those parents who do not have a Portal account. You can view the report by following these steps:
- Go to https://www.northcolonie.org
- Click on Infinite Campus Parent Portal on the right side.
- Log in using your username and password.
- Use the Select a Student pull-down menu at the top and click on your child’s name.
- Click on Reports on the left side.
- Click on JH Report Card Q1.s
As we move forward, we plan to extend this practice of posting instead of mailing hard copies to other documents and information as well. We hope in the near future to be (mostly) paperless regarding communication. Thank you.
