District 230 continues to streamline communication
Digital Report Cards are the latest addition to growing list
Digital report cards will be added to the growing list of ways District 230 is streamlining communication processes through the use of digital tools in response to feedback from families and students. Our goal is to provide timely information and secure systems that can be accessed anytime, anywhere. We know that families are busy and being able to find information and upload required documents on their own schedule will be of assistance.
Here are several ways District 230 is digitizing communication to meet families’ needs.
Beginning with the 2019-20 school year, families will access their student’s semester and end of year report cards through Skyward. This will allow anytime, anywhere access to the grade report for families and will decrease printing, postage and staffing expenses related to mailing report cards to all families. Families who choose to still receive the printed report card can do so by selecting this option in the annual registration steps that open in Skyward on Monday, June 17.
In response to feedback from students and families, for the 2019-20 school year, the Parent-Student Handbook will be available digitally on the website, mobile app and a link on student’s district-issued Chromebook. Moving to a digital version of the handbook will allow it to be current throughout the school year as policies and other information are updated. A paper version will also be available at each of the schools for families who do not have digital access. The district will provide a streamlined academic planner for students to organize their assignments and schedules.
Each year, families must provide Annual Residency Verification documentation to the district. Families of returning students can now submit this paperwork through a secure digital tool. Once submitted, all documents will be reviewed by staff to assure authenticity. Those who do not wish to use the digital process can submit paperwork at Annual Residency Verification dates scheduled throughout the spring. New students and incoming freshman must complete the Annual Residency Verification process through the traditional paper process.
Families must provide certain medical information to the district in accordance with state law. This includes The Certificate of Child Health Exam, Dental Exams, Eye Exams, Evidence of Meningococcal Vaccination, and Medication/Asthma/Allergy Forms. Specific details about the online process for medical forms can be found on the Nurse’s Office page of the school websites.
Website & Mobile App
The newly launched website (www.d230.org) serves as a communication hub with a modern design and easy to access information. The district’s mobile app can now be downloaded to any mobile device that will connect families to important information through alerts pushed directly to their device as well as links to key information and systems including Skyward, Canvas, calendars, and lunch menus. Search for Consolidated High School District 230 in the app store for any device. You can then select which school you’d like to receive information about through the app.
