Through the Home Access Center, parents can now access their child’s records (attendance, grades, progress reports), as well as check the demographics on record for accuracy. To access the website, parents should go to Internet Explorer, enter http://hac24.eschoolplus.k12.ar.usand navigate from there. The program is not accessible with Apple products at this time. Ashdown eSchool trainer Melissa Kilgore states that letters were mailed to parents last September with details and contact information about the new system and its Home Access availability.
Teachers now use eSchooPLUS for recording and reporting grades and interim progress reports. The “bugs” are being worked out, according to Kilgore, and teachers will find it easier to transfer grades to report cards. Parents will still receive printed report cards and interim progress reports, but now also have the convenience of viewing online. Parents, especially those of secondary students, are appreciating the ability to check attendance records.
Kilgore reports that the next scheduled interim progress reports will be sent home and available for online access on Nov. 21. Anyone needing help can email at email@example.com or call the secretary at the child’s school office.
