The Institute for Self-Mastery works with the Quickschools school management system. With these and other resources we know you will appreciate the ability to maneuver easily with the Institute for Self-Mastery’s home school assisting program.
Below is a list of amenities that come along with our partnership with the program.
PARENT PORTAL OPEN COMMUNICATION
Sometimes parents and students have questions that must be addressed before the start of the next school day, especially if they are questions regarding homework, testing, and projects due the next day. Parents may also want to touch base with their student’s teachers if they have questions, suggestions, or comments regarding classroom activities, attendance, discipline issues, or grades. The Institute for Self-Mastery’s (ISM) Parent Portal includes a communications feature that enables parents to send private messages directly to their student’s teachers. This direct line of communication helps ISM parents and teachers ensure the success of our students.
The homework feature makes daily classroom homework assignments available to students and parents 24-hours a day. Teachers post assignments to the Parent and Student Portals along with instructions, clarification, and details. Homework posts include the date it was assigned, the date it is due, instructions and attachments. Teachers add clarification or modify homework assignments and projects as necessary. What makes the homework feature powerful, is the access students and parents have to the teachers to ask questions about those assignments. In addition, students will no longer be able to use the excuses “I didn’t know” or “I forgot” because the homework schedule is always available, and parents can double-check those assignments to make sure they are completed. Parents can also check a student’s progress while logged on to the Parent Portal to verify that the student is producing quality work.
ONLINE ATTENDANCE TRACKING
Another fantastic benefit of QuickSchool’s attendance feature is that students’ attendance information is available to parents immediately. Once a teacher saves the attendance record for the period, QuickSchools automatically posts the attendance information to the appropriate Parent Portal without any further action from teachers. Parents can check in with the school through the Parent Portal once a day, once a week, or even period-by-period to ensure their students are attending their classes.
Student’s grades are also posted automatically to the Parent Portal so parents have access to their student’s most up to date grades at any given time. This eliminates daily requests for progress reports and grade checks which can be very time consuming. If parents have questions about grades or assignments, then a message can be sent to the teacher through the Parent Portal. Teachers can now use their time more effectively preparing assignments, planning activities, and ensuring the success of their students.
