Kinross College is introducing the ‘Connect’ system for teachers to keep in contact with parents regarding student progress, assignments, marks and general communications. At this stage we are currently getting all the Year 7 and 8 parents ‘connected’. Year 9 parents will follow later in the year.
All students have access to Connect using their Education Department student login details which they also use to access a computer at school. As a school we are finding that Connect is proving to be a very useful resource for students, parents and teachers.
To login: If you have a child in either Year 7 or 8, you may remember receiving an automated email from the Connect system. (Possibly from the [do not reply] address: ‘email@example.com’ and with the subject line: ‘Connect Account Created’. If you no longer know your login details, or did not receive that initial email, please make contact with the College to request a new login.
Use this email to request your login details: firstname.lastname@example.org
SO WHAT IS CONNECT?
- Connect is an Education Department online portal. As a parent you can login to stay;
- informed with your child’s learning anywhere, anytime;
- securely access your child’s assessments, feedback and
- engage in your child’s learning.
When you login you will be able to view;
- notices across all of your child’s classes
- your child’s attendance
- assessment data
- tasks and
- progress marks.
Keep in touch: As a parent you can contact the teacher via Connect and vice versa. The teacher can use Connect to send information and reminders to whole groups, or just selected parents. Email notifications will go to the email address that you have registered with the College.
There is also a FREE Connect app which is great if you prefer to receive notifications to your phone or mobile device.
