CCHS parents given online access to student data through X2 Portal
An online tool is now available to parents of Concord-Carlisle High School (CCHS) students to see their children’s attendance records, grades, schedule and where they are during any particular class period. Director of Information Technology Gene Warfel and math teacher June Patton gave a presentation on how to use the X2 Portal information system when they spoke at the Concord-Carlisle Regional School Commitee meeting on September 29.
All CCHS parents should have received mail through the U.S. Postal Service in the last two weeks giving them a password and directions to log in to this system. See “Access X2” on the CCHS homepage at www.concordcarlisle.net. Warfel reported that as of September 29, a total of 266 parents had already logged in. He expected this number to double in a week. Patton said that all teachers are using this tool for attendance, quarterly grades, and new this year, progress reports.
When parents log in, they will see “Recent Activity” which is a list of assignments from various classes. Parents can click on these and see their child’s grade for the assignment. A copy of the assignment may be accessible. Patton said teachers can also opt to put in the high, low and median scores for a test.
Patton said, “The students are getting comfortable with it.” Students, and now parents, get emails when a student is late to or absent for a class. She added that most students had logged on; 107 students still need to.
“A lot of people worked really hard on this,” said Warfel. He thanked Nicole Bloomfield, Peter Kelly and Patton for their efforts. ∆
