Dear Parents and Guardians,
This is to inform you that we are currently reviewing how we acquire parental permission in our School District. Our current Field Trip Policy is under revision, as well as the regulations and supporting forms. We are also looking at the forms function in CIMS Parent Connect, along with an alternate product called Permission Click, to determine which one might be more “user-friendly” in order to streamline the signing processes that occur each September and throughout the year.
In addition to the above, we are also considering the various ways that technological change should be reflected in our permission processes. As you likely know, we are already using online programs (like MyBluePrint) in some of our classrooms. If you feel you need to know more about these web-based tools, I encourage you to reach out to your child’s teacher. If you decide that you would prefer to have your child “opt-out” of using one of these programs, our teachers will support your child in accessing their learning in an alternative manner.
