CCSD rolling out new way for parents to monitor students

LAS VEGAS -- Parents with children enrolled in Clark County School District schools will have a new way to access information about their children.

The district is rolling out a new student information system called Infinite Campus, which it bills as a ‘one-stop shop' for all student and school information. The system will be accessible through a website and through a mobile app for both Apple and Android devices.

Infinite Campus is like a real-time report card where parents and guardians can get performance information and participate in their children's education.

Students will have access to the system Sept. 5, when schools give out student login information and parents will have access Sept. 30, when activation keys are mailed out from CCSD.

Parents and students will be able to get information like class schedules, assignments, assessment scores, school calendars, grades, attendance, graduation progress, credits, transportation, and student account balances, along with district and school notices.

The principal of Silverado High School said a big benefit of the new system is that parents and administrators will get earlier indications that a student maybe falling off track.

"They're going to be able to be aware of how students are doing in not only their class, but in other classes. So, if a student is struggling, they can collaborate with one another," Principal Robert Mars said.

Another advantage is school counselors can look at patterns like excessive absences or sudden missed assignments.
