School Implements Campus Portal

If you have children in school, you may not want to wait until a report card arrives to see how your child is doing.

David Gibbons likes to keep close tabs on his daughter Mesha.

“If my kid is five minutes late, I want to know why she's five minutes late,” Gibbons said.

Now he will, thanks to Campus Portal. It will allow parents to login, and check out everything from attendance to how their child did on a homework assignment.

All public schools are required to implement the system next school year, but Bell County Schools is jumping on board now.

School administrators hope to give parents the power to catch problems early.

“The time period between interventions, if the child is struggling, is immediate. There's no time lapse there,” Greene said.

“They need to know that I'm not going to be a mean parent, or a controlling parent, but I want to know where my child is at all times,” David Gibbons said.

But his daughter Mesha doesn't seem to mind.

“I think it's pretty good, because most students won't allow their parents to see that,” Mesha Gibbons said.

Mesha says she works hard and assignment by assignment, she's glad her father will see how good she is doing.

The system should be up and running for Bell County school parents on April 20th.

All school districts should be on board next school year.
