Features and Benefits (this is not the same as registering your child for school)
Benefits of Registering
Simply stated, we understand and appreciate how critical Web solutions are to our success as a District. The parent registration/subscription is just one of the many in-built features that provides the best communication between our district and your household. The benefits of becoming a registered user to our website are outlined below.
Subscriptions There are two main types of subscriptions which registered users can take advantage of. Each of these are outlined and explained below:
> Content E-Alerts. By subscribing to sections of the website that are of particular interest to you, ensures you are advised immediately when content in these sections has been updated..
> Broadcast Alerts. In addition to being advised when content has been updated, registered users can receive notifications via email and/or mobile text message (SMS) for notifications pertaining to such things as early dismissal, school closures/delay, as well as non-routine circumstances.
> Mobile Alerts. As part of the registration process, registrants can elect to provide their cell phone number. When Broadcast Alerts are issued, the originator has the option to also transmit this as a text (SMS) message depending of the circumstance. As the registered user, you can either elect to receive only urgent/emergency notifications via text or receive all notifications as text messages.
Aside from the ability to receive Content E-alerts and Broadcast E-alerts, registered users are also able to take advantage of the additional features available to them.
> Calendar Registered Events. As a registered user, parents are able to sign up to attend events published on the District, Schools, or Section calendars as appropriate. Examples of such events could include registering for Parent/Teacher Conferences, Website training, and other events where seating is limited.
> MyView. My View can be thought of as a Personal Workspace comprising of a Dashboard and a Planner both of which can be customized in terms of layout and content. In addition, parents and/or guardians who are registered users are able to also view their children's MyView Planner.
