Parental Involvement Meeting
The Giddings ISD District Improvement Committee met on November 19, 2013, 5:30-6:30 PM, to discuss parental involvement within the district and to identify strategies to improve parental involvement. Committee members and parents were invited to attend the meeting.
The committee identified parental involvement and communication strategies that have been effective in the district as well as those that need to be improved. Parents gave suggestions for how the district can improve the overall communication and parental involvement. As a result of the meeting, campus leaders and administrators will review the suggestions and develop plans to improve communication and parental involvement within the district.
Sign up for the New Parent Gradebook Portal
Giddings ISD is pleased to make the TxConnect parental portal available in English and Spanish. TxConnect gives parents and guardians web access to their child's grades and attendance directly from the teacher's gradebook. Teachers have been asked to maintain accurate and current electronic gradebooks to help parents track their child's progress.
TxConnect has some excellent features that can help parents keep on top of their child's grades and attendance. Not only can a parent access their child's information via the Web from home, work, or any place they have an Internet connection, they can also subscribe to email "Alerts" that can be sent directly to an email address each time one of your children receives a low grade on an assignment or his/her average falls below a level you have set. Notification "Alerts" can also be sent to you for unexcused absences or tardies. Absences will update daily and grades/assignments will automatically update each night. Another great feature is the message board which allows the district to keep you informed about report card and progress report dates.
Contact your campus office for a Student Portal ID in order to sign up for TxConnect.
