How do I track my student's progress?
We have a number of tools to help students track progress and to keep parents in the loop. We believe in student ownership of learning so making the student responsible for knowing where they are, what they need to do, and how to get it done is paramount to a successful process.
- Schoology--This is our platform where students access the curriculum, teachers put in grades, and parents can see what assignments there are, what has been completed, what the grades were and what is left for the semester. The teachers communicate with the students what unit they should be on to be able to finish on time for the semester. For example, if a student just took their Unit 3 math test and the teacher said they should be on Unit 2, they are ahead of pace.
- Student Progress Emails--The students email home once every 3 weeks with a progress report on how they are doing in the Synnovation Lab, how the classes are going and what they are working on. This goes to the teachers, parents and counselors.
- Exam Ready Emails--About a month before the end of the semester, the Lab will send out a personalized email with the status of the student's mastery of content: On Pace or Behind Pace. Starting in January 2019, we will do this every four weeks.
