Pardon Our Progress: Shining A Light On Illuminate
Now that the school year is underway, parents may be wondering where is School Loop and what is this talk about Illuminate?
Illuminate is an all-in-one student information system that is replacing several systems throughout the district, including the School Loop Parent Portal. The addition of Illuminate will enable Bossier Schools to offer you the most updated information on your child while still encompassing the features you liked about School Loop and more, including email alerts for parents opting to set up notification messaging using the Home Connection Portal.
Once activated, parents will have the ability to log in and be more actively engaged in their child’s education wherever there is an Internet connection. Because teachers’ grade books, absentee reports and other information are entered in this student information system, Illuminate will enable parents to see their child’s assignments, homework, grades and schedule. Throughout the year, additional information will be added, such as a student’s attendance and tardy status in real time, test scores and transcript data.
There are other benefits as well. If a parent indicates their child has allergies or a medical condition, teachers will have that information; state test scores from past years will be available; and families with multiple children in Bossier Schools will be able to view each student’s profile without needing to create separate accounts.
Information about how to create an Illuminate parent portal account will be sent home with your child soon. As you can appreciate, merging student data from the previous system to a new one, the need for it to be an exact match, and entering new student information is cumbersome and taking longer than we anticipated. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.
Once it is up and running, we feel confident you will be more than pleased by the new system and the wealth of information available at your fingertips.
