Portal User Expectations for Parents and Guardians

Centennial Infinite Campus Portal User Expectations (Parents/Guardians)

User Expectations

The Internet and secure web access have altered the ways that confidential information may be accessed, communicated, and transferred by members of society. Research indicates that one of the most significant factors in student achievement is engaging parents around student learning. The Centennial Infinite Campus Portal is provided to enhance school to home and home to school communication. Our primary goal is to provide an opportunity for students to take responsibility for their own learning. Parents, it is your role to engage in conversations with your children about their progress and to prompt your children to work with their teacher regarding missing assignments, improving performance, and setting goals for the future. Nurturing the development of responsibility is a key component of developing a reflective self-directed learner.

Electronic Access to Student Information

The Centennial School District manages student information electronically and will make the student education records available for viewing only to authorized parents/guardians with a secure connection over the Internet. All parents/guardians will comply with the Internet use regulations and all technology regulations/procedures, as well as all other District policies that may apply.

A) Rights and Responsibilities

Once a student withdraws or graduates from the Centennial School District their access will be inactivated. Parents/guardians and staff must understand and practice proper and ethical use.
