High-tech tools allow parents to keep tabs on school activities

Gone are the days of waiting for a report card or a parent-teacher conference to find out how your elementary, middle or high schooler is doing in their classes.

Four years ago, Infinite Campus, a tool that combines student information, learning management, school notifications and more, debuted in the Sioux City Community School District. Infinite Campus was founded in 1993 in an effort to streamline educational processes, promote stakeholder collaboration and personalize learning. It now serves 7.8 million students in 2,000 school districts across 45 states.

Parents of students enrolled in pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade, can access information, such as grades and schedules, and also update their household contact information at any time by logging onto the Infinite Campus parent portal, which can be found on the district’s website, siouxcityschools.org.
