Kidz Watch is giving parents the key to ensuring that their children are making the most of their time. Through their Parent Portal program, teachers can upload pictures, lesson plans and anything else they feel is important to children’s education to an online portfolio.
With a username and password, parents can see what children have been working on by logging in on any device, smartphone or iPad, and viewing what their children have been “tagged” in. It’s also available for parents to upload projects done at home for teachers to review.
“The benefit of this program is having more communication with parents,” said Sylvania administrator, Kaylene Launder. “Sometimes, we can’t remember everything we did throughout the day but if we upload it, parents can check in and see it whenever they want to.”
After about a year of its implementation, it continues to help students through parent involvement which is key to their success.
